Recycled railroad ties used as a bridge

Recycled railroad ties from the original terrace along with bluestone removed to make way for the house edition are used as part of the numerous walks and bridges that meander through the property. With each change in material underfoot vistors to the garden react by looking down and noticing small perennials, native woodland plants or the reminder of a former riverbed.
