A carpet of lush turf frames the granite paver drive of this elegant estate. Over 6,000 impatiens dazzle views while entering the drive court. Groupings of loosely pruned hydrangeas, yews, and ornamental plantings provide a lush backdrop. The towering trees are carefully maintained by pruning, and root-feeding twice a year.
