Designing a Formal Potager
My client loves the English garden and her husband loves the formal French garden. They enjoy cooking and entertaining friends and family and wanted a formal space to grow an abundance of herbs, flowers and vegetables to eat and to generously give away. They also wanted the garden to look beautiful all year with lines to complement the colonial brick house. This is the initial sketch that brings together their desires. In all of my designs, I supply an extensive, detailed planting plan. The master plan leaves room for the annual vegetables and flowers that will be rotated yearly and provides as much space as possible for perennials that attract beneficial insects and supply the garden and the table with colorful blooms all season long.
