Stately Symmetrical Garden

Neat hedges lend an English feel.

This new home exquisitely embodies age-old principles of symmetry and proportion, and the yard is no exception. Landscape architect Ron Holbrook chose a pretty parterre made of boxwood and yew hedging, pea-gravel pathways and a limestone fountain to bring a formal look to the backyard.
