    Parterre de broderie also called parterre de broderie type of parterre garden evolved in France in the late 16th century and characterized by the division of paths and beds to form an embroidery-like pattern. The patterns were flowing ribbons of form (generally of formalized foliate design) rather than the angular shapes typical of other types of parterre; and the various beds into which the parterre was divided by paths were coordinated in a single symmetrical design.

This looks like a French garden. The roses are probably 'Iceberg' which is unscented. I would use the hybrid musk rose 'Prosperity' which is gloriously perfumed and flowers continuously through the Summer. www.judithsharpeg...

Nice stairs, but probably really easy to trip on the bushes... Maybe put these in the garden with an area for flowers above, where the concrete is currently.
