" Once an old apple orchard, this twelve year old garden is a one acre walled oasis in the high desert. A one-quarter acre pond, complete with koi and ducks, circulates 200,000 gallons of water through a wetland purification system (seven small ponds) that separates numerous perennial and bulb beds, a fruit orchard and various small groves of globe willow, birch, aspen and poplar; all designed to highlight the dozens of realistic bronze and stone sculptures and fountains throughout the garden. - From researcher Cheryl Nance." Alligators and turtles were once in the garden.
