If you missed the May 6th Garden Tour - Hella's Garden Part 2

This is Part 2 of Victoria Gardens' private garden tour from May 6th 2012. We will be hosting a virtual tour of all four gardens this whole week.

All photos have been provided by the lovely and talented, Jeff Stultz. 

If you missed yesterday's post, see Hella's Garden Part 1.

Hella uses unexpected elements that add both structure and levity to her gardens. Pictured above she uses a wooden ladder as garden edging creating rhythm and a sense of whimsy. 

Hella uses flexible cattle panels 25 feet long and 5 feet wide as simple an inexpensive arched arbors. Covered in Akebia and Clematis, this piece of humble pasture fencing transforms into a green and magical garden walkway. 

Tomorrow the virtual garden tour continues in part 3.
