When a British businessman purchased the 400 year old Chateau de Fontenay, a landmark 70 miles from Paris, it was fully furnished. Not satisfied with the decor or its quality, the owner brought in Tino Zervudachi and his assistant Dennis Pyle.

To landscape the lawn and gardens, Zervudachi brought in landscape architect Jardin des Tuileries. The lawn is forty-five acres of lush greenery. ENJOY!

To read much more about this chateau, get the May issue of Architectural Digest.
I have planned for posts through next week.  I will be so busy finishing up my class, but hope to visit your blogs.  See you soon, dear friends.
