The most beautiful French gardens - Dominique Lafourcade

French farmhouse landscape garden Dominique Lafourcade

The most legendary French landscape designer has to be Dominique Lafourcade. If you don't know her work you are in for a treat. She creates sublime gardens which are chic, manicured, formal, natural and quintessentially French.

Her ability to create destinations in gardens of all sizes is exceptional. She uses pottery, fountains and sculpture, (and even a tree house) to entice you to explore all parts of the garden.

Anduze urns appear frequently in her work. Their iconic form is evocative of the gardens of the South of France. They are traditionally glazed with green, brown and golden yellows and when they are weathered they are gorgeous. They complement the architectural features of a building when strategically placed between windows, flanking a doorway or gate.

Homes sit beautifully and comfortably in their gardens, softened with planters, climbing wisteria, and their facades dance with dappled shadows of the trees from the renowned soft light of Provence that has long inspired artists.
