The Moon Gate Garden within the Enid Haupt Garden on The Mall in Washington, DC, an intimate space in an otherwise very public place designed for large masses. Designed by architect Jean-Paul Carlhian.
‘Cabin Creek’ by American sculptor Deborah Butterfield at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan, US. The material is bronze. (Using found wood, Ms. Butterfield first assembled the materials to form the horse, cast each piece in bronze, then reassembled the piece.)
Zarcero Topiary Gardens
Parc Andre Citroen in Paris, France. I like the simplicity of the straight shot path with handset pebbles for overflow crowds. Smart planning. Designed by French landscape designers Gilles Clement and Alain Provost.
The French parterre garden at Hillwood Estate in northwest Washington D.C., US. Former home of the heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, open to the public since the 1970’s. This garden was her favorite.
