The formal design of the garden was contained in a large circle cut in grass, broken by straight paths to the house and summer house. The central design was in the form of a Maltese Cross, surrounded by other formal figures, outlined by box. Among the flowers which flourish there in the heyday of the garden, which may still be seen blooming bravely, are narcissus, tulips, iris, lemon lily, columbine, fraxinella, funkia and yucca.
