Restoration House, Rochester, EnglandEntrance gate & front path

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Set behind the Restoration House in Rochester, England, is a garden that has been perfectly restored to include features and plantings that trace the history of this fascinating townhouse. The Restoration House, tucked away on a small lane off High Street, is so called because King Charles II stayed the night there in 1660, on his way to London to be restored to the English throne after his years of exile in France.It's a large garden for a townhouse and has, like many English gardens, been divided into areas or rooms, each with a distinctive style or use. Many have features that could easily be transferred or adapted to smaller gardens — from the detailing of the brick paths and the construction of the summer house and greenhouse to the flamboyant summer borders.The entrance to the house through the simple, formal front garden gives a taste of what is to come. Beautifully clipped boxwood cones and low hedges line the path to the front door, where two large stone planters overflow with lime-green ornamental tobacco plant (Nicotiana alata) and the trailing green flowers of Amaranthus caudatus 'Viridis'.

Cone and ball. Topiary trimmed into fanciful shapes brings an Alice in Wonderland feel to the garden. Try a pair of conical topiaries flanking the front door.See more topiary designs indoors and out
