Visitor Comments

This is very good news. I have visited this marvelous garden in the past, and was hoping it would again be available for visiting. As I recall, the design accomnodates a wide variety of ornamental plantings, perfectly highlighted and separated by an inspired mix of lawn, hedges, pots and walkways. Truly a magical place of harmony and intelligent design. Can't wait to visit again
