Surrounded by a wall fabricated from 18th century bricks that were transported from England as ships’ ballast, the garden is styled after a typical English garden of the time. 200 year old boxwood bushes line the paths that artfully connect the rectilinear beds.
April is when the garden is at its most riotous, with thousands of tulips and other blooming perennials vying for attention. However in late July and August the Crape Myrtle trees are in full bloom, competing for the “most colorful” time period.
However, Landscape Designer and Master Gardener Laurie Klingel manages to cultivate stately beauty worthy of beholding at any time of the year, even when the garden is in full repose in the dead of winter.
