“A tribute to those who invented the modern private garden”


Viller the Garden pays a tribute to the grand era of garden making. This gardens which Jane Brown strikingly called “Gardens Of a Golden Afternoon” inspired all garden designers afterwards. Main feature in these gardens forms a long border. Getrude Jekyll, the grandmother of all gardens made a 200 feet long border. The long border in Viller measures only 115 feet (35m) but has flowers at both sides. A nice opportunity for me to become familiar with a lot of plants and to take up the challenge to keep it flowering during the summer months.

Design

 

Owners, house and landscape played a major role on designing the garden.
