"This garden is an amphitheater. The semicircular rows are formed by low brick walls with turf for the seats. In front of the stage is a fountain. The stage is backed by a colonnade. In another garden, boxwood hedges planted in geometric shapes border flower beds and all are arranged around a central pool. Elsewhere is a turf walk with small pools at either end. Here a gate is at one end, a pergola at the opposite end. The turf walk is flanked by a hedged-edged flower border."
