“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape- the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.” – Andrew Wyeth
What do 20th century American realist artist Andrew Wyeth and Nashville landscape architect Anne Daigh have in common? Why did Daigh use his quote as the description for this garden? They are storytellers and lovers of the bleak, the melancholic, the beautiful. Daigh’s design for this suburban backyard is painterly in its approach, sculptural in its execution. To me, an Australian, it has about it a certain “Americanism”, the dream of the field, the barn, the farm.
