General:
The original land, purchased circa 1970, was less than two acres with a modest house was meant to be a vacation home. The flat rectangular lot had been used as a dump and took two years to clear; the task of creating order evolved into creating a formal parterre garden with brick walkways, extensive treillage and hedges, a potager, and rose gardens. Primarily French in design the formal garden was laid out on a central axis with asymmetrical radiating paths with a Greek herm placed at one end of the axis. Three more acres were acquired; yew hedges were planted since there were no walls, in addition to the clipped boxwood hedges of the parterres. The property features a woodland modeled on English parks, swimming pool, dovecote and other sculptures placed throughout the garden rooms
Persons associated with the garden include Gerson Leiber (owner and garden designer, 1970s - ); Judith Leiber (owner, 1970s - ).

General note:
Boxwoods, considered the oldest house in Madison, was built for Randall Duke Scales. In 1812, Scales sold ninety-six one half acre lots which became the original Town of Madison. Leading up to the house is a long entry walkway bordered with boxwoods. At one time there were between five hundred and one thousand boxwoods of both American and English type on the property. The Vaughn family purchased the house in the mid 1800's and the Vaughn descendents continued to occupy it throughout the twentieth century. Nineteenth-century outbuildings include a smokehouse, coal shed and slave quarters.
Persons associated with the garden include: Randall Duke Scales (previous owner, early 1800s-) and Vaughn family (previous owner, mid to late 1800s-present).
A history about the Boxwoods property is also included in, "Old Homes in Rockingham Along the Dan," by Anne Pearl Pratt Van Noppen, published in the Messenger (Madison, North Carolina).
