Formal Garden Inspires Thoughts of France

Well-defined walkways, topiaries, hedges and flowers transform this beautiful backyard into a formal garden. As the guests stroll along the gravel path, they'll surely feel like they're visiting Versailles or another European palace.

Entrance to Pretty Parterre

Following the gravel path leads visitors to the center of the garden, where a pretty parterre waits to be discovered like a precious gem. Carefully arranged topiaries surround the feature and so enhance its elegance.

Stone Fountain Overflows With Flowers

In the center of the parterre, a stone fountain overflows not with water, but with red and purple flowers. In turn, the feature is both unexpected and entirely eye-catching.

Topiaries, Hedges Radiate From Center of Garden

Even at a distance, guests can appreciate the regal nature of this formal garden and see how its different hedges and topiaries radiate from the center. Clusters of lavender decorate the setting for additional color and texture.

Garden Includes Cupid Statue

As if this garden weren't romantic enough, Cupid himself makes an appearance beneath the arbors. Thanks to its weathered finish, this sculpture offers a touch of color and visual interest.

Sitting Area Among the Flowers

Tucked in one corner of the garden, a Lutyens-style bench gives the homeowners a spot to sit and reflect. With flowers and fresh greenery all around, they'll have no shortage of inspiration.

Topiaries, Hedges Bathed in Sunlight

There's nothing like strolling through the garden during Golden Hour. As the sun sets, it casts an enchanting glow across the topiaries and hedges.

Sprinkler Show

In addition to keeping the garden hydrated, this high-tech sprinkler system makes for a show-stopping visual display.

Romantic, Rose-Covered Arbor

An arbor covered with blushing roses makes a sweet addition to the garden, providing both structure and a hint of fragrance.

Natural Borders In Bloom

Hydrangea bushes, clusters of lavender and ornamental grasses not only define the gravel path, but also create a beautiful backdrop for the sitting area.
