This garden features a series of rooms, separated by trees and shrubs that were planted in 1984 starting with 2 Spring rock gardens next to the house. Then, the owner experimented with a sand bed and a 'hot garden', inspired by Elizabeth Sheldon's garden in Lansing. The pond and waterfall replaced the old perennial garden in 2005, and a crevice garden was added next to the waterfall in 2006. In 2010, three more rooms were completed: another crevice garden called Apu Isbell, an outdoor study under the canopy of a gigantic weeping beech, and an Earth Mother alter.
NOTE: This garden was a featured site on the Open Days Garden Tour and is not open to the public at other times.
