I love moon gates. The moon gate frames the pagoda style pavilion and the "good karma" boulder. Masons hand chiseled each stone on site and set the stone against a wooden arched form which was later removed. By McHale Landscape Design, Upper Marlboro, MD.
This closeup of a sculpture is such an interesting and exciting example of stone work detail. I find it kind of meditative as I study the image and imagine the process that the creator went through to put this together.
Half retaining wall and half sculpture, this river rock garden wall ensures the beauty of this outdoor space doesn’t end at the edge of the garden. Large river rocks are placed in a spiral pattern that swirls across the wall.
