Notes:
The Cress Garden features an outdoor entertainment area comprised of a deck with a gazebo situated over a pond. An off-set stone bridge inspired by Japanese garden design leads from a stone path to the deck, with five large boulders surrounding the pond, one of which is fitted with a waterfall. Evergreen and deciduous trees were planted to screen the entertainment area, which is situated downhill from the house. Mature trees were left in place. The private residence sits on less than one acre.
