This garden is based on the colonial tradition of mixing herbs and perennials and annuals and is laid out in a parterre syle , enclosed in a low stone wall broken by a picket fencealong one side. Garden designer Rudy Favetti helped with the design. An inner circle is planted with culinary herbs. The inner quadrants are planted with vegetables; and the outer quadrants are planted with perennials and annuals. A large birdhouse on a tall pole stands in the middle of the inner circle. A dovecote and arbor seat covered with grapevines are buit at each end of the enclosure.
