Nelumbo Water Gardens

The Water’s Edge

When all of life is accelerating, take time to slow down, appreciate, bask, imagine. Notice nature, the smell of the air, the soil, the plants. Remember the forts you built as a child. Maybe you learned to whistle by the pond, or explored the fields or woods around you. Look carefully, what do you see here that helps you slow life down? We invite you to come to the water’s edge.

Bartlett Tree Experts

Sustainable Woodland Secret Garden

This garden is an example of selecting the right plant for the right place. Mimicking a naturally occurring bog, our garden displays plants that thrive in acidic, low oxygenated soil. Woody shrubs such as Leatherleaf (Chamaedaphne calyculata) and Bog-rosemary (Andromeda polifolia) fills the ground plane alongside native flowering azaleas and over story trees like Tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica) and a feature 20’ Serviceberry (Amelanchier canadensis). An old field stone path with over five hundred square feet of moss leads you to a raised patio. A fantastic example of the potential of “Outdoor Living” in what could be viewed as a difficult space!

Terra Vita Native Design and Stonework

Farm to Coast Garden

Terra Vita gives you the Farm to Coast Garden !

Our garden is a reflection of native design in coexistence with farm gardens. From the river waters to edibles in the landscape, here is an example of sustainability taught by nature. No longer are the days of separation between food and beauty, its time to grow and eat from within the landscape. As you walk through this experience, we hope to show that all gardens can provide function while pleasing to the eye.

Welcome to the landscape of the Southcoast. From Bay Scallops to Beach Rose, Macomber Turnip to Heather, Blueberry to Bayberry,

Welcome to Westport...................Welcome HOME!

Wedding Garden

The wedding garden is all about the marriage of place-making and nature. We’ve incorporated the colors, textures, and smells of spring along with soft lighting to provide a sense of warmth. Given the linear geometry of a traditional wedding aisle, the axial symmetry is reflected throughout the garden to create focal points, and consequentially, some really nice photo ops! Hoping this display inspires visitors to incorporate natural features into their own wedding or event space.

Domina’s Agway

Creature Features

As adults, we turn to our backyards as a way to escape the stresses of our life and to congregate and celebrate life in general.  However, many times, our children are in just as much need for the same release.  A creatively designed water feature and back yard helps pull a family together and encourages healthy interaction with both nature and each other!  Our garden is designed to contain elements to yield such desired results.

The Painted Garden

The Painted Garden is an enchanted place hidden deep within the wooded forest beyond Misty Lake, where reality moves into playful surreal fantasy, a magical place of friendly critters, fairies and mermaids.  A fountain of youth springs out from a little nearby pond, the tranquil sound of it’s rejuvenating waters showering  down completes the harmonic experience for senses.  An old field journal lies among the wildflowers,  awaiting the next adventurer to add their experience within.  What do you  see throughout the garden’s colorful path?
