Fall Garden Design: Sean Knibb's modern meadows and outdoor seating
"I use them as benches," Knibb said of the biodegradable bundles.
He wasn't kidding. On a recent visit, he'd taken the concept one step further, creating slipcovers for the hay bales. Presumably, the damask-topped one he is sitting on in this photo is for Mediterranean homes and the colorful stripes, right, that would suit a modern environment.
In addition to this humorous seating solution, Knibb took me on a tour of his recent work: gardens that mix together grasses, flowers and herbs to create a modern urban meadow. Stop and stroll through the photo gallery.
