These gardens are firstly special because of the optimal way the landscapers and garden architects have integrated them into the environment in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape and the architecture of the house. The maturity of these gardens is another special feature. This often results from the rich history of the site and the ancient trees, but sometimes this maturity is achieved by planting and incorporating fully grown trees and plants in a more recent garden. Ultimately, what really makes these gardens so special is their owners’ enthusiasm and loving attention: without their dedication these designs would have no soul.
