This is Newton Vineyard’s famous English Garden in Napa Valley.  I can’t find all that much info on Newton Vineyard itself, one of the most broken websites I’ve seen in a while. bummer.  So we’ll go with the garden.  Parterre is the style of this type of garden, and there are rules, rules, rules about what you can and can’t do for these.  They have to be planted on flat ground.  Extremely flat ground.  You have to be able to overlook it so you can see the whole thing at once, preferably from the house.  The pattern must be x/y symmetrical. The pathways have to be the same width throughout. And you have to have a statue or fountain in the middle.  Topiary is always a plus.   

Here’s Sir Francis Bacon all the way from 1625 to tell you all about how to do one, correctly

I don’t know if he-who-must-always-be-named has anything like a formal palace garden on you-know-where.

Can't help but imagine a frame with two protagonist close up ... and that garden in the background. Like a take for a million dollar movie - only they wouldn't be able to produce such a stunning lighting!

I love the symmetry and dedication poured into gardens such as these- the posterchild (at least for me) is the one at Versailles. Makes you wonder how many hours of upkeep is necessary to maintain such beauty.. :nod:

The lighting you've chosen for this piece is gorgeous, the warm greens contrast so nicely with the blue-ish secondary lighting on the right :heart:
