Notes:
Synder Garden is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The approximately two and a half acre garden was established in 1997 to stop erosion near this Marion County house. One hundred and twenty truckloads of dirt were used to form the foundation for the garden. Plantings include evergreens, Japanese maples and varieties of fern and hosta are planted in the extensive stonework which surrounds the pond. In the spring, azaleas, dogwoods and hellebores color the predominantly green landscape. A pond, located directly below the house, is fed water by a tiered waterfall. Decks constructed above the pond provide a dramatic viewpoint.
