Being Awkward…

There’s always one, isn’t there! In this episode Designer Ali Conway tackles a REALLY awkward shape garden and how you take your eyes away from awkward angles in the garden.

Travel Segment!

A bit of a departure from what we normally do here at Successful Garden Design but we thought we’d share some of the lovely locations Rachel visited in June during her month of travelling around southern Spain.

In the travel segment Rachel visited Genalgaucil for garden sculpture ideas. And Jüzcar for the smurfs!

Recommended places to eat: http://www.hbenarraba.com
near Gaucin and Genalgaucil.

http://www.lagarganta.com near El Chorro (gorge and lakes) for the Caminito del Rey walk (you’ll need a good head for heights!).

Sorry if the video quality is a bit poor – computer had a major issue and wouldn’t render it so it’s a screen recording of it playing!

  1. A beautiful roof terrace, and how true, "You can't rely solely on flowers."
    But I absolutely fell in love with Genalgaucil – I'd be in my element there!

  2. Thank you so much Alison 🙂 I am glad you enjoyed the Design Show! Any questions – let me know!

  3. Hi Rachel, thank you for another great episode. I look foreward for the new one announced! As a reques: it would be nice to see more students of the course presenting their personal design with more technical details. Of course whether this does not break the copyright of your course.

    Muc Love

  4. Thank you so much Massimo. I am glad you enjoyed this episode. I always welcome the designs inspired by our Online Course and share them with my readers every time they are submitted. Look out for more great designs in the future 😉
