Notes:
Designed in 1992, the garden incorporates water features, modern sculpture, and native plants. Water is essential to this garden, bringing a feeling of freshness, renewal and tranquility. Plants noted for their fragrance surround each doorway. The garden design is inspired from the owner's travels to England and the Alhambra in Spain. The plant material in the garden features native plants and other species that have naturalized in the area.
