To round off a decidedly autumnal week, I thought I’d show you these photos of a little detail from a lovely garden in France.
The hazel fence is a perfect fit for this garden, it’s simple and suits the building and the rural surroundings.
It always helps in a garden design if you can use local materials, hazel grows locally, so that’s why it looks so good.
I like the neatly clipped grape-vine running along the top of the wall too.
Isn’t this a neat soluton to make sure visitors stay on the path and don’t wear out the corners of the grass?
Hazel is used elsewhere in the garden for fencing and furniture, so it’s a nice theme that ties everything together.
The garden is the Orsan Priory and isn’t too far from the Chaumont garden festival, so you could get inspiration from lots of gorgeous gardens.
Have a lovely weekend.
