A VI­SION IN PINK

LISA TOLKIN, SEPTEM­BER 2014

Condé Nast House & Garden - - DESIGN NOTES -

The ev­er­green ar­chi­tec­tural struc­ture of this gar­den’s hedged frame­work pro­vides a per­fect foil for the frothy spring dis­play of the cherry trees. These are no or­di­nary hedges; they are lay­ered and dif­fer­en­ti­ated by leaf colour, tex­ture, height and width, and pro­vide both year-round in­ter­est and a three­d­i­men­sion­al­ity to the gar­den spa­ces. The per­fect pro­por­tions show­case the owner’s ar­chi­tec­tural train­ing and the dra­matic flow­er­ing of the cher­ries cre­ate a sen­sa­tional, sea­sonal hap­pen­ing in an oth­er­wise calm gar­den.
