Unique Elegance of Cottage Gardens at The Brenham House
Unique Elegance of Cottage Gardens
Cottage gardens are informal gardens with dense plantings that are highly individualistic. English in origin the cottage gardens use grace and charm rather than formal structure. Many times there is a rose-bowered arbor entrance. These gardens give the homes such romantic appeal.
The Brenham House uses old-fashioned plants and varieties such as antique roses, native plants, herbs, and self-sowing perennials
which come back year after year.
As the years go by cottage gardens become very dense.
These gardens surround The Brenham House.
