Encircling a Victorian-era house, this romantically inspired garden design uses plants to build what is clearly an extension of the indoors. Boasting elegance and ease, these outdoor garden rooms take landscape “architecture” to new romantic heights. Richmond, Australia’s Eckersley Garden Architecture leads us through a four-season tour of leafy vines, bushes and trees, while six months of the year, roses can be found in bloom in a walled parterre courtyard. A wood walkway crosses a pond to a solitary seating area enclosed by hedges, which provide privacy as well as a varied collection of fruits and flowers through the seasons. In one part of the garden, deciduous maples are more natural and simple; while native and exotic native plants surround the pond and an al fresco dining area where a weather-proof table and chairs invite an easy-going air for entertaining.
