Gardeners everywhere seek to strike the ideal balance between a perfectly manicured lawn and a wonderfully wild garden. By incorporating stylish trellises, beautiful stonework, and tranquil water elements among her natural roses, Barbra Streisand strikes this equilibrium just right.
The singer and actress's yard is a beautiful example of the 'cultivated organics' style, where a highly planned garden appears completely effortless. Landscape and garden experts love the way that Barbra has put together her garden design.

Acclaimed designer Charmaine Wynter states: 'Barbara Streisand's garden serves as a captivating example of cultivated organics, showcasing a stunning array of seemingly unplanned floral diversity. Plantings appear as if they were left to bloom wherever they will; creating a harmonious mass tapestry of yellow, pink, white, and purple hues.' Barbara's floral displays are truly stunning.
Charmaine Wynter is an award-winning interior designer at Charmaine Wynter Enterprises and applies her design experience to life, sharing her advice with her followers through her Instagram live 'Host-Chatting with Charmaine Live'.

She continues on Barbra's backyard design, 'Much like the renowned artist herself, the garden exudes a natural beauty that effortlessly conceals the meticulous hours of labor invested to create such an idyllic oasis.'
Rachel Bull, Head of Gardens at Homes & Gardens adds, 'With its wildly romantic mass plantings of apricot yellow roses against a white picket fence, Barbra Streisand’s yard has a distinctly quintessential English country garden feel to it. The roses trail elegantly up each column along the length of the front porch, beautifully bordering a calming stream that runs alongside her house. I can only imagine how beautiful the scent would be from so many vibrant rose blooms in the height of summer.'
Rachel is a gardening writer, flower grower and floral designer. Her journalism career began 15 years ago on Country Living magazine, sparking a love of container gardening and wild planting. After more than a decade writing for and editing a range of consumer, business and special interest titles, Rachel became editor of floral art magazine The Flower Arranger. She then trained and worked as a floral designer and stylist in London for six years, and has created floral installations at iconic London venues including Kew Gardens, the Barbican and Peckham's Asylum Chapel
She continues, 'The rest of the scheme is natural and understated, with soft, white geraniums planted at the base of every trailing column, and in individual planters along the terrace. The natural stone steps and cute bridge over the water simply add to the relaxing energy of this charming space.'
