formal focal point

Haute Indoor Couture: Friday Favs

Old World style lion head fountain, surrounded by hedges and cactus. I mean, cactus in a formal garden - who would have thought that would work so well!

Provence - Colors of Provence - Lavender

Stone fountain in the Luberon mountains…lying in the middle of Provence in the far south of France.

A wonderful example of a formal focal point.

Very similar to what I’m planning–short hedges by the walkway, tall(er) hedges in back with roses in front of them. I wonder how quickly the short hedges will fill in at this height.

Shall we enjoy tea in the garden? I could be transported to Ireland here.

Water feature with small catch basin could be a focal feature of the decorative wall, although I prefer figural water features (water coming from a lion's mouth or god's head) rather than spigots.

Thinking along the sidewalk...

Cool colours and beautiful textures with small leafed Westringia and Santolina(?) by Secret Gardens of Sydney. Not only do fine-leaved plants withstand heavy coastal winds, but they look great when mass planted adjacent to other fine-leaved plants.

Gate of beautiful garden/Hedges and Gate could make an enchanting entrance to the front yard....with a brick path.
