Also, you may well meet some of the many resident wildlife inhabitants such as whitetail deer, wild turkey, squirrels, chipmunks and many birds. The woodland area is defined from the Meadow Garden by the dry laid stonewall built in 2003 by David Kridler, an expert stone artist.
The path terminates at the northwest corner of the Serenity Garden in the Conifer Forest. One may start or finish at either end. The easiest walk will be starting from the Conifer Forest and ending in the Meadow Garden. This direction prevents walking up a fairly long and steep hill.
Among the natural rock ledges and indigenous vegetation you’ll find stone benches and whimsical sculptures.
Plans are currently underway for several Asian style structures to be constructed in the near future. There will be an entrance gate structure at both ends of the path. Also, a bridge and a Japanese resting house are contemplated. The old brick spring house has received an Asian style curved roof and will continue to add interest into the future from it previous incarnation as a source of water for the residence on the property. More whimsical sculpture and plantings will be forthcoming as well.
Please enjoy your visit to the Gardens and the grand vistas and intimate niches. We hope you will find peace and tranquility here.
