Garden of the Month,  September 2003

Koelemeijer Tuinen 

This Dutch garden (tuinen) is located about a half hour north of Amsterdam, north of Purmerend, and is often found under the name "de Hof van Heden".  It is the display garden for a landscaping firm, located to the side of a large garden center.  Originally composed of 30 small gardens which can still be generally seen, these are now combined into 3 larger ones, with primarily formal or Japanese themes.  These sample photos were taken in April, and show some nice ideas for design, textures and foliage colors.

For a quick overview, check out the Slide Show.
