What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Garden Tour: Edith Wharton's The Mount
The secret garden is carved out of the woods on two sides and has a more rustic look, from the limited plant palette (mostly green and white, featuring astilbe prominently) to the rustic rock fountain. Beyond is a view through a meadow to a pond. In spite of its formal arrangement, the plantings and other materials in this garden make it an appropriate transitional space out into the less manicured areas of the estate.
