The parish garden refers to a very old style that could be found near churches or presbyteries. These gardens had a utilitarian vocation since they were used for food with the cultivation of fruits and vegetables but also flowers or medicinal plants.
This style is used today to create gardens where fruits, vegetables, plants and flowers are mixed. It is a rather zen garden which is organized in four square flowerbeds with a pond or a well in the middle.
Realize your priest's garden
Start by choosing a space in your garden. This must be closed, surrounded by hedges or walls. Delimit geometric parts on the ground, separated by aisles. Along the hedges, choose tall species to balance everything out. So they will protect everything. Color everything with flowers (roses for example) and add the vegetables.
Do not hesitate to have fun and let yourself go on the massifs:
- plant your choice of onions, potatoes or other radishes and carrots.
- add rows of forget-me-nots, flax, impatiens or other immortals.
- Serve with aromatic plants such as thyme or mint.
The principle is in harmony and pleasure.
