I came across this beautiful garden last week in Traditional Home. I worked my tail feathers off this weekend on my own garden, but the results don't even compare to the perfection of this English-style garden created by Jane Lappin and Arlene Gould of Wainscott Farms in Wainscott, NY. I'm pretty sure you have to have lots and lots of hired help to get these results; ah, but one can dream! For me, this garden has the perfect mix of manicured structure and naturalization of plantings. Also I love the color scheme!
I would really love to see a plan of this garden to get a better sense of where the formal gardens are in relation to the house and to the more naturalized perennial beds. Apparently the property is 17 acres....that's a lot of garden to maintain!
