Knot gardens are intricate patterns of shrubs or perennials pruned into hedges. These parterres can be found back into the 16 century, usually on the properties of castles. Knot gardens were especially coveted by the English, but heavily influenced by the French. What came first, the chicken or the egg?...kind of thing. Either way, I just love these gardens and I’m sure you will too.
Here are the before pictures of the garden and the early drafts of my drawings. If you don't have a drafting ruler, you need to get one. This drawing was done at 40 scale.
