English garden

English gardens

Several garden designers of note have shaped the landscape of Highgrove, the Gloucestershire country house of the Prince of Wales and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall. The prince, however, can take credit for the designing and planting of Thyme Walk. Creeping varieties of the fragrant herb flourish between paving stones, their scent released when visitors walk over them.

The golden-yew topiaries were untended blobs when the heir to the British throne acquired the property in 1980 but have since been clipped into whimsical shapes recalling fancy 19th-century desserts. The handmade benches are a collaboration between the prince, designer Stephen Florence, and architect Léon Krier.
