Gate Details for the Potager

I have been working on an estate project in the south for a while now. I couldn’t have imagined two years ago that my reply to an e-mail would blossom into the creation of a significant garden.  “Do you travel to design gardens?” was the simple question that has led to a partnership with the owner in creating a series of outdoor garden rooms with edible and mixed perennial and shrub borders. American Potager, LLC created the master plan for the site, the detailed planting plan and designed the walls, arbors and gates. Local craftsman have built the gates, the custom bronze hardware and the ball-bearing hinges to support the massive weight. A local contractor has been remarkable in implementing the design.

Last week I was on site as we installed phase one of the planting plan. When the boxwood hedge was planted in the potager I couldn’t help smiling. This new garden looked as if it had been there for a long time.
