Creating a focal point in the garden
As I was sitting outside yesterday, I was noticing that the area right in front of me, while it was coming together nicely with the new agaves, was missing a focal point. So I put that piece of petrified wood, that I got at The Top of the World a few months ago, there.
The goal of a focal point is to draw the eye without being jarring. Since the petrified wood is a slightly different color, it does draw the eye. But it's not a plastic gnome or anything like that, that draws the eye and looks ridiculous. In fact, it looks even better up close.
