Even with the paintings returned safely indoors, the garden still serves as an outdoor gallery. Sculptures, bespoke art installations and fascinating antiques are present in many of the garden beds. Additionally, Osterling and Alessandrini employ a technique which they’ve termed architectural gardening. “Early on we experimented with incorporating a few pots into the garden beds as a way of adding height, texture and color,” they recall. People responded so well to the approach that today there are over 100 containers tucked amongst the plants, some planted, some empty and others boasting perfectly placed bamboo poles. Around every turn there is something new and creative to surprise visitors.
