A series of planned plateaus provides places for roses, strawberries, verbena, and vegetables.These plateaus, as well as the entire garden, are managed by a 26 zone sprinkling system, two wells and a large holding tank. A waterfall ends in a natural looking pond surrounded by a rock garden to form the entry garden.
