Country Garden Parterre

Create interest by mixing formal and country gardening styles.

In this parterre-style formal garden, 16 boxwood squares hold roses, poppies, peonies and delphinium. Cast-iron urns set on clean-lined bases punctuate the garden. The building beyond the garden houses a workshop, a new horse barn and a garage. It’s painted in Falun red paint, an environmentally safe powdered paint that’s mixed with water, linseed oil and dishwashing liquid.
