General:
Established in 1988 on five acres, the owners wished to create a garden on a grander scale than their previous small gardens. The space needed to have a water supply, a south-facing slope, and to be set within a forest environment. The owners designed a pond for the focal point for the house above. The lawns and borders lead the eye to the pond. These elements were the determining factors in where the plant collections, trees, and shrubs would work.
