Certain crops are inherently architectural or could be pruned to look that way. Among those naturally shaped to provide the gardens guiding strains are Italian cypresses, which rise like green columns in opposition to the Bealls’ hillside views. Others include the rosettes of Agave attenuate that tumble round stone stairways and fountains in dynamic contrast to the ramrod-straight cypress. Hearing the trickle of water is an all-but-irresistible lure to exploring a garden. Listening to its music, you wish to observe it to its supply, and within the Bealls’ panorama there are tons of. A fountain with an octagonal basin creates the liquid soundtrack for the herb backyard.
