Simonds Garden (Omaha, Nebraska)
A classical garden intended for relaxing and entertaining, inspired and supplied with garden ornaments by the designer's European travels. The garden is along the east and north sides of the house. Lattice work is a unifying design element, linking various areas of the garden. A 55 foot pool runs the length of the house, flanked on the north and south by antique lead swan fountains. To the north, sits a garden house overlooking the pool. On the east, west axis a fountain sits opposite the house's front entry.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: Francis Simonds, Jr. (Garden designer, 1984).
