GARDEN AT HARDENBERG HAUS - HERRENHAUSEN, HANOVER




In 1747, a house was built for the garden director at Herrenhausen, Friedrich Karl von Hardenberg. The original garden no longer exists. The new design of the site uses tall hedges of hornbeam trees along the existing boundary walls to increase the intimacy and usability of the space.

The garden is now divided into a terrace close to the building and an adjoining lower-lying area.


Squares of hydrangeas, edged in box, rise out of the terrace. The lower-lying lawn is bordered by gravel paths and surrounded by a hedge of trees.
Two lily ponds on the terrace extend to the lower-lying lawn leading into the depth of the grounds. They direct views to a fern and grass border at the end of the garden, where in autumn, the brilliant red tupelo trees provide special interest
