Carbonmade

I recently found a great online way to show some of my portfolio of the gardens that I've designed and built.



The website is called Carbonmade, and is quite simple to use, and looks great. You can take a look at my portfolio here, and if you want to sign up, go here...

Hey Ross. Your work is stunning. And your portfolio looks great. Thanks for posting.

Ross - that's a great tip. Now I wish I hadn't gone to so much trouble creating a gallery for my website using my iWeb tools on my Mac. I like that it's so easy to include text.

By the way, your work is beautiful. Is that Erigeron karvinskianus along the steps of the swimming pool? Does it tend to escape?

I looked at your work, wow ... they are beautiful. I like the water feature in between the bamboo trees.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the compliments Anonymous...

Billy, it was your amazing gallery that got me thinking about how I could do the same thing, without forking out too much cash, and I stumbled on Carbonmade as a result.
Yes it is Erigeron, but no it is quite contained the way we've planted it - but it does tend to become quite a handful in the wrong place. BTW, the main hedge that we planted around the property for a fast screen is Eugenia/Syzigium ;)

Thanks Blossom, I was quite happy with the result - it turned out quite tranquil in the end.

Nice portfolio! My website has been up for five years and consequently is not nearly so easy to update as the point and click options that are available now. I have a second website for my budget design process that I built myself on Homestead in less than a day. I wish some of these tools had been around when I started.

FYI, did you tiltshift the photo on your post? It looks great.

Just checked out your other sites - they're very well done. I like your explanation of the design process.

Yes, that was my attempt at tiltshifting after seeing what you had done on your blog. I used some of the blurring tools on Gimp - It really creates a great effect!
