Stony Ground

Old School Garden

I love land art. You can often see it in protected landscapes or the grounds of important buildings. Sometimes, more riskily, it can be found in the open landscape, where it can make a wonderful contribution to an overall scene, aid interpretation of a place or maybe even just define a space that would otherwise be unremarkable.

I feel this way about wind turbines- I know that having them placed up against your plot might be a pain. Their numbers, groupings and locations do need careful thought, but I think we should embrace them more as potentially positive additions to our landscape (as well as out at sea). Rather than try to ‘hide’ them by leaving them creamy white, why not make more of them as land art – a clever paint job or perhaps adding some whimsical ornamentation could actually make them something we look forward to seeing.
