The entrance to a secret garden is very important. It can be grand, like these two stone obelisk, or simple. An arbor covered by wisteria or roses, or perhaps a wooden gate and a simple door hint at mysteries and wonders found inside.
Many English gardens incorporate antique-looking elements, such as these two weathered stone obelisks flanking a formal entrance. Boxwoods line the path with both clipped and natural shapes to enhance the parklike effect, so typical of the formal English garden.
