Broad flower beds of perennials and annuals bring color and romance to the ocean side location of Cliff Garden, a seven-acre property atop an 80-foot drop to the Atlantic Ocean. The flower beds surround an ovoid lawn that features an antique marble table from India. The garden is entered from the circular driveway by crossing a wooden bridge and going through an Asian-inspired pergola. In addition to the main flower garden there is a cutting garden next to a garage, grass walks around the house leading to the cliff that are bordered with beds of shrubs and flowering shrubs, woodlands, and naturalized plantings in the center of the driveway in front of the house.
The garden was established in 2003 with the assistance of landscape architect Patrick Chassé (ASLA). Hardscaping includes stone stairs leading down from the house to the garden, benches, and large native boulders amidst the flower beds. An electrified deer fence protects the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Dennis Bracale of Gardens by Design (landscape designer, 2004-2009); Patrick Chassé, ASLA (landscape designer, 2003); Jeff Gammelin of Freshwater Stone (stone mason, 2002).
