This fabulous potager garden was designed by Brooke and Steve Giannetti, who apparently are masters of everything related to design.
It appeals to the sense of order I like in vegetable gardens, but what really has me over the moon is that fence. It is so perfect in every way, right down to the finish (Super Deck “Weathered Wood” stain).
The fact that they have espalier apple trees growing on it, only makes me love that fence that much more.
If this were my garden I would change a couple things. Because I’m constantly clamoring for more space to plant, I would either make the raised beds bigger or add more. Also, with a space this beautiful, I think I would actually turn it into an entertaining space. Can’t you just imagine a rustic table and chairs plunked in the middle where you’d serve a great dinner? OK, maybe that’s not the most practical pipe dream, but I can assure you, I’d be having cocktails out there.
I think I love the “back door” entrance even more than the front. Those stairs are so charming (but of course you need the level entrance in the front to get a wheelbarrow in there) and I love how the rose climbs around the corner.
Yes, I could live with this garden.
