Notes:
The Arbors is an enclosed garden, very formal in feeling. The land used is part of the side of a slope that has been formed into a series of brick terraces and brick walkways with flower borders. The wooden structures and elaborate brick work show Furlong's talent in creating a unique work of art. Brick walls surround a fountain with a Middle Eastern vase with water spout. On each side of the fountain are pruned boxwood. Most of the flower beds are planted with tulips of different colors. A group of earthenware jugs are placed on the first small wall to harmonize with the rustic feeling of the brick. The brick walls are covered in blue morning glories. A pond is fed by a stream of water and contains white water-lilies.
