Scampston Walled Garden, UK

The Walled Garden is quite extraordinary. Piet Oudolf took the original walled area and turned it into 10 different themed gardens each with a distinct geometric pattern. Instead of using the outer perimeter wall to border the gardens, he created a Plantsman's Walk around 3 sides with beech hedges and pleached limes creating an interior wall. This hedge wall borders at least one side of each of the gardens except for the Perennial Meadow, which is completely interior and is located in the center.
