Whimsical Walls

Lucy collects anything which can be used in a mixed-material wall. Pieces collected by the client, perhaps with sentimental value, can be incorporated too. The first wall that Lucy built, in the Sensory Garden at Brandon Marsh was created as an habitat for invertebrates. However, the wall then and those since are as much art installations as 'insect hotels'. More 'wabi-sabi' than slick and seamless masonry.

 

"... I've loved being able to watch you build the salvage wall, and having the opportunity to input into the design as it has come into being: it's such a wonderful feature of the garden design and has turned out to be even better than I imagined.  I couldn't love it more.."


Each wall and situation is unique. The cost of the build is estimated based on time which in turn depends on complexity as well as volume of materials. For example, a wall to be viewed from both sides takes far more time to construct artistically than one with an unseen back...and dry stone wall is less than one built with mortar.
