Flower Garden: 1883; Water Garden: 1893
Monet's garden is made of two parts: the flower garden and the water garden. The flower garden was designed in 1883 and consisted of a kitchen garden and orchard with a somber tree-lined pathway leading from the house to the road. There were 15 polychromatic and monochromatic flowerbeds. The boundary wall was planted with Pyracantha and climbing roses. The garden also consisted of horse chestnut hedges, fruit trees, roses and apple trees. The water garden was designed in 1893, which was inspired by Japanese gardens. An underground passage entrance was designed from the flower garden to this garden. A Japanese bridge further connected the garden. The water garden consisted of weeping willows, bamboo thickets, Wisteria, and water lilies. --Russell, V. (1995). Monet's Garden: through the seasons at Giverny. New York: Stewart, Tabori & Chang
