The thing I find fascinating is the degree to which multilevel gardening seems to be used. I see a lot of "turf benches" and other "plantable walls", true, but a LOT of raised bed gardening.
In fact, raised beds (in some cases multileveled beds), bordered with timber or stone seems more the norm than the exception.
Another thing I see a lot of is the use of espalier fences for division.
Fencing seems to be lightly constructed, and used to trellis plants on
Walls when they are used are heavy stone walls for privacy.
I also see really tight picket fences, but they are peripheral when used at all, and I wonder if these arent animal fences (to keep out rabbits and dogs) as they seem to bused when bordering woods.

- That was my thought exactly, there is clearly a style to the right. Today, we think of "opening" a gate to pass through and tend to forget there are other ways. (cattle gates for example). I would think the simplest solution would often be the answer.
Put in a style for getting from one side to the other, and a well made panel which could be lifted out of the way, or simply laid down, depending on what you needed to get through.

Luttrell Psalter group, for you and any others
here who have access:
There is a clip that was posted on January 20th,
which starts off with a woven fence/wall. If you
hit Pause at about the 0.31 second mark, you can
see what appears to be a vine or rope hinge on
that wall. Best seen if you watch in large screen!
And I highly recommend the film itself.
