Design Meet Function: Our Award-winning Creation

Hinsdale Nurseries is thrilled to highlight expert landscape designer Lindsay Buchalski on her win of the ILCA 2021 Silver Award for Residential Structures.

Lindsay’s inspiration for the project came from the client’s love of sculptural rock formations. The signature piece of this design, the wood-storage wall, needed to capture a sculptural feel, so she started researching sculptural work by various artists, such as Lew French.

“I started playing around with soft curves and looked at ways to lighten up the wall to give it a more whimsical, fluid appearance…Because rock formations were so integral to this client’s wish list, every aspect of the design reverted back to that basic element. The question I kept asking myself was, does adding this component further the client’s goals or not? If yes, then it became a part of the design. If not, I left it out.”
