The cast-stone reflecting pond is the first thing family and guests see when they mount the double stone staircases leading up to the Circle Garden. Lotus flowers grow on the pond’s surface, which is shaded in part by dogwood and stewartia trees.

Hedge? The grass used for these amazing feathery hedges is Pennisetum alopecuroides Hamelm. Maintenance is easy, the plants are just cut down in spring with shears and then they will grow to acheive their full potention by the end of summer. Wow.

Italian influence with deep herbaceous borders either side, reflections of the surrounding trees are seen in the rill. Great ambience and mood created here.
