The gardens at Huys de Dohm clearly reveal the influence of English garden designers such as Gertrude Jekyll (1843 - 1932) and Vita Sackville-West (1892 - 1962). Pruned hedges, espalier trees and lawns form the architectonic structure of the 14 different themed gardens, which were created by degrees between 1980 and 2004.


The gardens consist of various “rooms”, the designs of which incorporate topiary and single-coloured borders as well as decorative rural elements such as a flower meadow and a vegetable garden. In addition, there is a silent garden, a rose garden and a spring avenue planted with bulbs. As in the case of Vita Sackville-West’s garden, Huys de Dohm has a white garden which radiates a special atmosphere by moonlight on summer evenings.
