What Houzz contributors are saying:

Le jardinet added this to Landscape Design: A Secret Garden
1. The Hidden ClearingThere is something exciting about unexpectedly coming across an open space in an otherwise densely planted garden. You can achieve this effect no matter how large or small your garden is. Even clearing a little spot behind a stand of tall grasses can create that sense of intrigue. While larger spaces can serve as gathering places for toasting marshmallows over a fire, smaller nooks can be a place for sitting and watching dragonflies dance.

We all could use a special place in a garden where we can relax, read a book, enjoy a cup of coffee or simply listen to the birds. It can be a retreat we share with others or use for private contemplation. Whatever the size, purpose or place, the key feature remains the same — it needs to be at least partially hidden from the outside world: a secret garden.
