For the Southampton home, not only did Pheasant imbue the rooms with the quiet elegance of his signature streamlined classicism, he embraced the beauty of the surrounding gardens to create a house that is both formal and relaxed, fresh yet timeless. The garden's formal design and all-white blooms echo the restrained style of the interiors. Boxwood, Iceberg roses, Blushing Bride and Annabelle hydrangeas, dogwood, wisteria.
Pleached Hornbeam trees - Pleaching is the weaving branches of multiple trees together for privacy, wind & sound block. Best trees for pleaching are Lindens, Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), Beech, Apple, Pear, Hawthorn, & Carob. The American Hornbeam (Carpinus Caroliniana) is hardy and holds some of it's leaves during winter to provide a privacy screen year round. Because each tree is trained to have a single stem, there is space below a pleached hedge for other plantings (a hedge on stilts!)
Love this look using exotic species incl Silver Birch? This can also be achieved with hardy Australian natives; Tristaniopsis laurina DOW10 'Luscious' - a compact tree to 6m with burgundy bark that peels to reveal a silvery trunk. For small 'pyramids' (and medium hedges) substitute with select broad-leafed Acmena smithii such as FIRESCREEN Pbr or SUBLIME Pbr clipped to shape. Acmena smithii ALLYN'S MAGIC Pbr is a lush, low clipped border... Bob's Your Uncle!
