Plan Description

Tucked into a corner by the house and hidden from view by a high hedge, accessible only through an arbored gate or an entrance from the house, this garden is so secluded that it remains a secret from anyone in the rest of the yard. The designer keeps this secret garden essentially formal in design so that its lines and plants create a restful scene. Three tall shade trees at the garden's corners create symmetry and further enhance the feeling of privacy. These trees and the formal hedge rest in an expanse of groundcover, which gives them a pretty skirt while also discouraging weeds. The groundcover extends under the hedge into the secret garden, dressing up the beds of flowering shrubs, bulbs, and perennials. The flagstone walk meanders through the garden to avoid an overly formal effect. The sculpture in the center of the garden creates a focal point that can be enjoyed from anywhere in the garden, but especially when viewed from the corner bench. Plants, walk, and sculpture all combine here to create a pretty viewing garden within the hedge walls. (Only invited guests enjoy the delights of this formal garden, which is designed to be hidden from public view.)
