They got the memo, below, siting urns on plinths. Sitings, below, work equally well at gate keeper's cottage, head gardener's home, mid-century brick ranch burger, a new Spitzmiller & Norris.

Never think elements of garden design are not for your home, counterintuitively, classic Garden Design works at every style & price point.
Needed a huge stone plinth with ball finial at a client's project, to match existing. Huge. There was no budget for it. Got it anyway, and with great age. Built exact replica, to scale, using wire mesh meant for concrete road paving, used a glass ball from a light fixture, planted English ivy. No one the wiser, OUR stone plinth, not stone.
Garden Design rules work everywhere. It works if you work it.

It is gift & curse knowing what to do in gardens. Driving thru any neighborhood, my 'eye' fixes everything. No shutting it off. Excepting rustic, farm, Nature, the beach, Stone Mountain, wide open prairie. Already perfect. The 'eye' is content.
