The Inward Garden

 
 
 
 
Deep within each of us lies a garden.
An intensely personal place this landscape grows from a rich place of ingredients--
Imagination, memory,character, and dreams--that combine in wonderful ways in our innermost selves.

Throughout most of our lives,
This garden remains hidden from view save for brief moments spent daydreaming or in quiet contemplation.
But many of us long to make this imaginative garden real; 
To sit in it,stroll in it, to palpably possess it on our land.
We seek to give form to our inner garden as an ornamental landscape--an outward garden in our own backyard.

Your outward garden lies upon the land--
a private landscape for watering, for dancing, for daydreaming.
Both gardens represent a personal paradise--a beautiful place designed specifically to capture the most positive and refreshing landscape memories;  
a that is both a sanctuary from everyday life and a place of rejuvenation;  a place available to you at all times.
