Consisting of two acres, the owners designed the garden in 1966. A feature of the garden is the stand of seven 150 foot high eastern white pines that dominate the hillsdie north of the brick walkway that leads to the courtyard from the parking lot. Other native, mature trees include Norway sprice white cedars and white oak. In addition there are many introduced conifers such as Chinese and Japanese pines. Unusual for the region are the oriental varieties of maple. The garden inspring include varieties of allia, fritilaria, emerus robustus, an many other types of bulbs. There are four different areas of the garden. The first is the entryway from the parking lot to the west end of the house, which includes flower beds. The second area includes the garden borders within the couryard, the walled area encircling the swimming pool on three sides. The third and largest area is the upper yard, above the courtyard, with a terrace overlooking the courtyard, lawns, two garden islands, and gardens along the north and west fence line. The fourth is a woodland area with a wood chip path. Fountains and sculpture are important features in the garden.
