This cottage-style entry garden features a constructed naturalistic pond with a gazebo and wetland plants. This welcoming garden complements the 160-year-old Cape-style house. The steel gazebo provides a shady vantage point from which to view the house and gardens.

The gazebo offers a comfortable vantage point from which to view the wetland-like pond and the rest of the lush cottage garden.
Natural stone architectural features like walls, bridges and waterfalls are arranged to create layers of texture in this Colorado garden. An arched bridge leads visitors over a natural wetland inspired pond surrounded by a bounty of native plants which help to soften the stone features.
