Enjoy the fragrance of several varieties of herbs planted around the boxwood hedge, which is pruned with a “French Parterre” style. This style is similar to a “Knot Garden” but without the woven effect. French Parterre gardens are formal gardens constructed on a level surface consisting of planting beds edged in stone or tightly clipped hedging, and paths arranged to form a pleasing, usually symmetrical pattern. Thyme, basil, oregano, and chives are just a few of the herbs found here. There is seating within the trellis on the north edge to relax and enjoy the view.
