From the darkened Ruins, we enter the light. This garden is a garden to really take a slow stroll. The garden, when created, was very highly amended to make conditions amicable for the Mediterranean plants that are planted here. The rock garden is planted with low-growing herbaceous plants, many positioned to be viewed closely by the visitor.
As you descend, the plants start to increase in height and airiness, many becoming grasses.
I will let you experience the place as the designer intended. Alone on a casual walk, getting close to the plants and seeing what horticulture the gardens hold.
