Green Architecture

What is green architecture? I am sure that it can be many different things depending on who you are talking to. For me, it is the design direction I want to take at Kilbourne Grove.

When I was searching for a name for my blog, I thought about what I wanted my blog to say about my garden.  I want my garden to be formal, but formal in a green way, not with bedding out plants like Versailles.  I had seen the words Green Theatre somewhere and I liked how it sounded.

Not my garden (I wish), but a lovely one I visited for Doors Open. This is the direction that I would like my garden to take, notice there are no flowers, (I do think that he beds out annuals at the bottom, but luckily I have never seen it.

After I had been publishing my blog for a month, I was bored at work one day and I decided to google the phrase “Green Theatre”.  It can up with this on page 17,  the Encyclopedia Britannica definition.  Green Theatre is “planting, usually of evergreens, designed to provide accommodation for outdoor theatrics.”

The same lovely garden at Doors Open. Love the clipped cedar buttresses. OK, there might be a few too many cement pieces, but I can edit that, no problem!

Good to know that there is a future for Kilbourne Grove, I can rent it out to the Owen Sound Little Theatre.
