About The Garden

The Stone Ruin Herb Garden is whimsical in its nature. The ruin is completely “green” in the concept of using circa 1850 American Chestnut barn beams and turn of the century foundation stones. It is designed to be a one of a kind art piece; the material dictates the size, form, and shape of the final composition.

Standing alone, the edifice can be admired for the unusual beauty of the design or serve as interactive art with multi-purpose ability. It can be used as a potting house or as a leisure/entertainment space. The nooks and crannies, filled with interesting artifacts, and open glassless windows conjure up interesting visual perspectives into the interior space or out to the surrounding garden. It is meant to be a place where one loses the concept of time while meandering among its elements.
