    <BLOCKQUOTE>Rubble is old news......or is it? Dragons and purple bunnies seem to be the hot topics these days but rubble made a big impact in our realm, especially in design. The first great design I witnessed using rubble was on Great Lakes in the MOA library. A shipwreaked, beached ship scenerio was masterfully done.

    Since that day I have seen some truly great design with rubble and many were/are on Catskills. The MOP Museum and its large rubble tables make it hard for anyone to be more impressive with rubble.
    (If you make a trip there be sure to check out the rooftop with its wonderful perfectly placed large rubble trees giving the garden a shady place safe from the harsh rays of the sun). However I have no doubt Leigh on Catskills could outdo the best. Several months ago she gave me a tour of her Catskills creative endeavor and her power room and kitchen are the best I have seen in years and I have seen hundreds of those types of rooms.


    The owner of the Temple of Zento on Great Lakes was redesigning the temple shortly after rubble appeared in our realm and he actually used rubble in support beams and walls.

    It seems plants had a revival with rubble. I have fond memories when horticulture first was made available to us. The new plants gave new ideas and enhanced many a garden. Ren's Vesper Shore Shops on Catskills is a perfect example of that as well as The Peaceful Garden on Great Lakes. CanaCabana on Catskills showcases a log and stumps nicely.




    If you have a design using rubble you are proud of please send a screenshot my way for a future article and happy designing !
