What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Lessons from Monet's Garden
Leading from Monet's house is the the central alley, here re-created in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at The New York Botanical Garden. The alley is the highlight of the garden in late summer and autumn.Planting schemes of the early 20th century consisted of overabundant borders encased in boxwood (Buxus spp.). Monet removed all the box edging from borders in the existing garden, allowing the free plants to stray onto the pathway. This veered from the structure and constraint of contemporary garden design at the time.A clever trick he used when forming beds, and one easily copied in our own gardens, was to bank up the soil to make the plants seem taller.

This is what makes people fall in love with plants. This is an ideal garden full of color and character and shapes. the green arches actually help you retain your focus downwards instead of it getting so lost. Simply stunning
