Join us for an interpretive tour through this artist’s garden that has been featured nationally as one of the country’s outstanding fall gardens. It is a fascinating garden that has borrowed from the gardening cultures of Japan, Korea and China. There is the wonderful fall colour in the enclosed sanctuary garden borrowing from the Japanese tea garden style. We then explore the woodland shade garden and the oriental woodland garden. Ever evolving it has features that have been introduced for xeriscaping including – ponds, a drought tolerant Mediterranean area, a wild flower meadow (which also features grasses), and a bog garden.
Throughout this garden you will find integrated into the plantings pieces of original art and unique architecture that defines the character of this garden by adding both beauty and whimsy.
