An expansive and lush lawn connects different rooms within the garden. The emerald green boxwood hedge with a clipped topiary defines the lawn from the swimming pool and the low blue fence and arbor frame a small floral and herb garden.
Framed by tall green hedges, this formal water feature adds a whimsical detail to the garden. Water flows from a decorative ceramic mask hung from the plastered wall, into a basin filled with aquatic plants like water lillies.
A stone retaining wall and trimmed hedges make the entrance to this 1820s Colonial farmhouse look even more stately. As guests follow the brick walkway up to the front door, they'll be able to fully admire the double-hung windows, gabled roof and original chimneys.
With its immaculate landscaping and smooth stone walkway, the approach to this Greek Revival home says everything you need to know; though apt for modern living, the estate exudes Old World charm. At night, twin lanterns can be lit to increase visibility and enhance the elegant aesthetic.
Even at a distance, guests can appreciate the regal nature of this formal garden and see how its different hedges and topiaries radiate from the center. Clusters of lavender decorate the setting for additional color and texture.
