The undulating garden. A topiary garden of Taxus baccata and Buxus sempervirens, with half bole Ilex. where the leaves and flowers of the alchemilla mollis recall of the frothing of the sea. Intense light during the inflorescence. A screen of Cupressus obscures the open view tof the sky.
The scented grove. A trefoiled green chamber whose alternated rib and triangle design is reminiscent of the plans of some Byzantine churches. In the middle, an octogonal ornamental basin is planted with scented water lilies and other odoriferated plants.
The mysterious arbour. A border of thuyas run the length of the second section of the diagonal path, forming a green tunnel flanked by two chambers hemmed by the boles of the Cupressocyparis leylandii.
The open air theatre. A newly replanted semi-circular grove of Taxus baccata,with festooned walls functioning like a real theatre with four lateral frameworks, a backstage in greenery and a platform lawn for a stage.
Diana’s Temple. Standing in the right place, facing the garden,one can see the beautiful double perspective of the alleys of Thuyas plicata atrovirens to the right and Tilia to the left, both leading to the chateau.
* Harmonising with the style of the 17th century chateau. * A parterre designed to be seen from the house. * Nature disciplined in a geometric arrangement of lines, triangles and hexagons. * The wole perfectly incorporated in the landscape. This is the end of the tour of the architectural gardens of la Ballue.
