The new formal garden is inspired by the romance of English country estates as well as the historic Paine estate. The symmetrical design has a sunken lawn center with sloping beds on each side. Arbors frame the environment, and sculptural water fountains act as dramatic focal points at each end. Shrubs and perennials create year-round structure while dramatic seasonal displays of annuals and bulbs fill the heart of the garden. The inviting setting provides shaded and sunny paths and benches for pleasant strolls and seating. The elaborate design presents visitors with an initial grand impression followed by intimate experiences with charming plants and details.
