Garden designers have been creating hedge maze gardens for illustrious clients (famously including royalty) for thousands of years. They originally served a practical purpose, but eventually became simply fun puzzles to challenge garden visitors.
Maze Gardens are wonderful additions to children’s gardens and botanical gardens. They commonly accompany formal and modern garden styles.
A Maze Garden made with tall hedges is a wonderful way to provide plentiful private spaces for outdoor dining or meeting areas.
For optimum appreciation, provide a high platform for an aerial vantage point or plant the maze garden outside a multi-story window.
We firmly believe that Maze Gardens can and should be used more frequently in today’s landscapes. They can serve many purposes that deserve to be explored!
