The Parterre Garden has a modern design best viewed from above. Trimmed yew hedges and different species of barberry edge the individual, irregularly shaped quadrangles. These create a marked contrast to the more natural look of the herbaceous plants placed in the surrounding areas. The various shades of green and autumnal tones of the hedges bring the seasons to life, as do the geophytes and perennials that have been planted. The species chosen were selected specifically for their hardiness and effect over a long period (Rudbeckia fulgida var. deamii, Bistorta amplexicaulis and Hakonechloa macra, among others). Ornamental grasses interspersed here and there (Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster') create a link between the different areas. Along with the repeated hedges, they bring the entire space together to create a cohesive whole.
