Notes:
Garden borders, paths, and trails line the outer edges of the property and create secluded areas while leaving wide expanses of lawn to give the visitor an impression of a space much larger than the property's two acres.The garden is entered from a small courtyard through a sculpted arch in an evergreen and boxwood hedge. the rear exposure of the hedge provides a backdrop for a copse of dogwood and maples; and an anchor for a perennial garden that winds its way into a shade garden and deposits you at the entry to a gravel path. The path travels through a woodland garden ending at a tranquil outcrop of rocks with a cascading spring into a pool filled with goldfish, water lilies, and other aquatic plants. The water garden contains a gnarled and twisted yew, which created a natural sculpture shading a sitting area with a teak bench. A cedar shaving path continues along the perimeter of the property through additional specimen border gardens. A small formal garden with boxwood-lined beds leads to grassy paths through arches created from surrounding hardwoods. Two large conical yews defines a formal seating area.
