Nestled against the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina is the grand Biltmore Estate. This amazing property is known for its glorious informal and formal gardens. It is here that horticultural experts, and hobby gardeners alike, take infinite delight in the beautiful bounty that nature provides.
One, however, does not have to be railroad tycoon to find inspiration in the magnificent gardens of the Biltmore. Simple structures, like the above lattice work window, are easily incorporated into smaller gardens. Even though the structure is uncomplicated it is still incredibly dramatic.
The open oval center creates the illusion that one is peering through a window. The lattice work generates the perception of a wall. Even though one can see through the lattice, and open oval, it conveys to the viewer that they are inside looking out.
