Chanticleer – A Tour With Dan Benarcik – Part 2

In the first video, Dan took us on a tour of the Entryway and Tea Cup Garden.

In this video, before leaving the Tea Cup Garden, Dan shows us one more silver element, rosemary willow – Salix elaeagnous – a small tree or shrub.

Dan cut it back hard this year to re-introduce light, heat, and air circulation into the garden. He likes it because it’s green on the top side with a silver effect on the underneath – which in the wind and breeze creates an interesting two tone effect.

In the video below, Dan is in the Lower Courtyard where he has created an environment that is lush and formal. He shares his thought process in designing this magical piece of art.

Dan also offers up some pearls of wisdom for both the garden and life.
