Small, formal garden and a great way to design a long, narrow yard.

Emily Whaley’s Garden, Charleston, South Carolina. Designed by Loutrel Briggs in 1940 and tended faithfully for almost 50 years by Emily Whaley, the garden is small and secluded in Charleston’s historic district

This is a town garden I designed some years ago.  In the background is an extremely large garden shed which we painted 'Sargasso Sea' (Sadolin) and, as you can see it's a very recessive colour.  The pergola has the climbing rose 'New Dawn' scrambling over it.  In the foreground is one of several box balls, Euphorbia characias sbsp characias 'Humpty Dumpty'.  The paving is edged with red bricks which matches decorative coursework on the house.
