Garden owner’s description: The rolling terrain has allowed me to design four different levels of outdoor “rooms” connected by brick steps and walks. I have recently rebuilt a six-foot brick retaining wall with a raised limestone terrace overlooking the parterre gardens below. The construction forced me to relocate many large boxwoods and redesign the four quads which have a fish pond at the central axis.  

A gravel path through a shade garden on the side leads to the formal garden. Below the parterre is a vegetable cutting garden. The views from the house, screened porch and limestone terrace are elevated and have sweeping views of the lawn with both sides bordered with perennials, flowering shrubs, beds, and a wall of evergreens across the back perimeter provide a privacy screen.
