The Neville Garden is comprised of fourteen different named areas that reflect the owners' interests and relationships, all contained in one-third acre with an Arts and Crafts style house built circa 1910. The private garden rooms behind the house were originally utilitarian areas used for laundry and services, and by 1988 were in derelict condition. To commence the redesign a crumbling sidewalk to the service entrance was removed, fencing was improved, the ground was leveled, a terrace was built, and trees and spring bulbs were planted. Improvements were made each year, including the removal of tree stumps, overgrown trees and shrubs, the repositioning of old rhododendrons away from the house and the moving of a cupid fountain from in front of the house to the rear to become the centerpiece of a perennial garden. Other private garden rooms behind hedges or fences include a brick Tuscan courtyard and hybrid tea rose bed, an allee of apple trees, a philosopher's garden with stone pavers and seating, a paved T'ai Chi court with statuary, and a minimalist garden with a fountain. The garden rooms that are visible to the public include a hot garden planted in red and yellow annuals and perennials, Anselm's shrubbery fort designed for grandchildren's play, a pastel perennial bed and evergreen corner, woodlands and shade gardens on the perimeters, a bonsai rock garden, a cliff garden with a mugo pine and azaleas as well as mosses, an English cottage garden and hydrangea hedge, and a sunset terrace with seating and a nearby bed of chrysanthemums.
The hot garden is on a corner of the property and is used as a public space to display political and advocacy materials. For several years it held a September 11 memorial. A ring of globe cypress was planted to disguise an above ground plastic swimming pool that eventually wore out and was replaced by the circular minimalist garden planted with a sourwood tree, an American dogwood, and a Japanese red maple. Native rocks have been repositioned and stood up as accent pieces, including a bizarre boulder made of granite, quartz, mud, pebbles and other glacial debris. The Neville Garden was award the Isabel Stoughton Foster Cup in 2007 by the Milton Garden Club, which cited the profusion of flowering trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs, the four seasons of interest in the garden, and the privacy and serenity of the garden rooms.
