About this week's Guest, Jennifer Bartley of American Potager:
American Potager is a landscape architecture firm founded with the belief that gardens can be beautiful, productive and restorative. Our designs are inspired by the grand French kitchen gardens and borrow elements of enclosure, seasonality and dependence on the garden for everyday food and flower arrangements.
We are part of the new mandate in modern garden design to create sustainable, useful and edible gardens that bring joy to the soul and bounty for the table. We create master plans for estates and intimate kitchen gardens for restaurants but always with a place to sit and enjoy the harvest.
We select the ideal brick or stone for patios, paths and walls. We design fences, gates, potting cupboards, trellises and wrought iron fruit tunnels. We are experts at selecting plants that create shade, enclosure, volume, structure, fragrance, bloom, bouquets, shelter and something to eat every day of the year.
We collaborate with clients, architects and other landscape architects on an individual basis to create outdoor garden rooms that are places of beauty and respite.
