John Adams


This American TV mini-series about the life of the 2nd American President was filmed in Hungary. The challenge was to create the spectacular French gardens of Louis XVI, and the pastoral beauty of the president’s home in Massachusetts. The palace garden involved the overland transportation of twenty giant Carpinus trees in Versailles planters, the construction of intricate parterres made from artificial box hedging and hand cut turf,  giant urns and plinths and garlands of flowers. The President’s cottage garden was an even greater challenge, being started from scratch in a bare field in Hungary! We dug up and shaped the plot and transported and planted hundreds of pots of meadow flowers, climbing plants, trees and shrubs.
