Half Moon Barn
These photographs, taken just after planting was finished, show this garden close to the house. Beyond is a swimming pool in it’s own space, and then an orchard, and fields beyond. So a series of rooms.
Now, two or three years later, the paths and steps have weathered and the planting is established and softening this intentionally formal area. How far one maintains the discipline of a design like this, or allows the plants to romp away, is for any owner to decide. The use of many hot and pale pink tulips look really good here in springtime, hot coloured dahlias follow!
