A double treat awaits you in this pair of gardens. The first is very traditional– a church cloister garden reminiscent of 13th century England. Then, just 10 paces away, doors open onto a modern courtyard of sleek and functional design. How many times have you driven past these hidden treasures?
Not far from a busy city thoroughfare is a 1920s Georgian home with six distinct gardens connected by rose-covered pergolas and a wisteria-covered arbor. Wrought-iron entries, soldered by the owner, invite you into each room that include trickling fountains, a 13-foot obelisk and beautiful plantings.
Come explore! See what a twosome of a professional gardener and an artist created from their former fence-to-fence grass yard of an early 1900s home. Features include mixed borders, a mostly native pocket prairie, room for seasonal displays and lots of homegrown veggies. Containers filled with collector’s plants and curiosities take center stage on both front porch and back dining patios.

At the end of a cul-de-sac, a quiet garden oasis called “Robbins Nest” awaits. It’s home to hostas, hydrangeas and horseshoes…and benches for easy viewing. Inspired by lush English gardens, one room ushers into the next, each featuring horticultural treasures, distinctive boulders, and items of whimsy. The rear deck provides the perfect perch for a glass of wine and a moment for quiet reflection.
