We have always said that a great frame is just as important as the piece of art it holds. We think the same about landscaping to a beautiful home.....
Since we are in the dead of winter and could all use a dose of green, we thought we would introduce you to one fine man who happens to be exceptionally talented. Gavin Duke is a Nashville based landscape architect but don't be fooled...he is one busy fellow. With projects spanning the country, he is a man in high demand. As mentioned in an earlier post, we are both very busy making sure that this years Antique and Garden Show of Nashville is a BIG HIT. The crew involved asked Gavin to be our Entry Garden Designer and he graciously agreed. Plans are drawn and the ELEMENTS are in place...Now we just have to wait till February to see his creation take center stage.
We are told that the entrance garden is largely influenced by European, tailored garden structure. His philosophy of landscape design is to create a seamless integration of the built environment and its surroundings. Gavin’s work has been published in national and international publications. He is truly a local talent in our own backyard.
