The Gardens of Eyrignac

When do I get to take my trip to France?  There are so many amazing gardens that I am dying to see.  Eyrignac is at the very top of my list.  I found this great video I wanted to share with you.  You can find their web site HERE.

Beech Hedging

Hedging is such an important part of garden architecture; on that here in the US is often under used and under appreciated.  There is no better way in my mind to break a space up or create volume and depth in a space.  This picture is a powerful example of the strength that can be created using hedging.  There are many wonderful plants to use, Beech (Fagus sylvatica) is without question one of the best and most classic examples.
