Neat rectangles of clipped English yew stand adjacent but not connected in one of Mien Ruys’ legendary gardens in Dedemsvaart, Netherlands. The plants form a green wall visually reminiscent of a common border hedge but entirely different—imposing but permeable. Light, air, and people can pass through. Ruys’ use of a living fence to divide a garden internally demonstrates how simple plantings can influence how we experience a space.
