De Vésian created gardens by studying the region, its plants, its light and its agricultural traditions

After a career as a designer working for such great design houses as Hermès, Nicole de Vésian (1916-96) moved to Provence and created her first garden. On the narrow terraces around her home, de Vésian designed her own masterpiece in a minimal but far from austere style, composed mainly of heathland plants (varieties of thyme, lavender, rosemary, rockrose and box tree), in which she pruned all her plants to cushion shapes of varying yet superbly proportioned sizes, resulting in a breathtaking scene. Her gardens soon inspired gardeners and landscapers around the world.
