Broadmoor Garden

Composed of a tranquil pond with water lilies and a gurgling fountain, backed by a dense semi-circular Yew hedge, this formal English garden provides a pleasing vista from a prominent living room window. Entered from a crushed rock path bordered by low hedges of Japanese Holly, this water garden gives way to a more ample and less formal back garden marked by flowing lawns with mixed perennial and shrub borders. A terraced herb and vegetable garden constructed of wood timbers leads to an octagonal gazebo at the low end of the back garden. The project was constructed in three phases over several years. The most recent phase is the new hot tub deck, surrounded by brick piers, brick steps and flagstone paving. Accessed directly from the dining room, the hot tub deck links the formal pond garden with the back lawn, gazebo and vegetable garden. The deck is constructed of Ipe, a tropical hardwood also known as Ironwood and “Rhino deck.”
