The garden design, referencing horticultural practices in Britain’s 17th century Stuart period, combines axial organization with elements such as fountains and pools, terraces that respond to natural topography, pleached trees, and parterre beds. The design consists of a simple approach to and around the house, and more elaborate spaces in terraced levels behind garden walls. The courtyard landscape is intentionally spare in its palette in order to evoke the simplicity of traditional Europe forecourts.
