I am planning on using green boxwood and variegated box for the central design, and then lavender or catmint around the edge. It is a longer, rectangular space, so many of the traditional knot designs will not work, as they are square. And I do not like the typical overlapping squares in a long row.
|I just came up with this knot design today, after some more thinking.|
|This design would change the name of our garden area to "Parterre", as it is not a knot. Not a knot... say it ten times fast? ;)|
Formal, ornamental gardens of the French Baroque period and English Renaissance were typically laid out on level surfaces adjacent to the grand buildings or halls, par "on", terre "the ground". ~ from Plant Preview
I was tending to the more simple parterre design, but then I realized that the knot would look very nice when viewed down its length from the side.
Which do you like?
