This was actually the first hardscape structure I put in the garden, several years ago now, and I think it has weathered well. I've had several neighbors tell me over the years that it's one of their favorite parts of the garden, so I decided to build a sister to it in a troublesome spot on the other side of the yard. In so doing, I think I've also added some balance to the garden's design. Here's a "before" photo, with a few boulders already in place:
And here is the "after":
Now I just need to remove/clean up the lavenders that got run over by a car last fall, put in some additional plantings around it, and in a couple of years, hopefully, it will create that same sense of mystery.
