Use hedges and paths to blend garden styles.
A five-foot high, sculpted yew hedge divides the formal country garden in the foreground from the casual garden room tucked behind. Tiers of plantings step up from the reflecting pond by the house to a studio beyond the hedge, creating a sense of flow through the garden. The use of gravel and stone throughout the various garden rooms visually connects the different spaces, creating a sense of unity.
