A Fine Romance

From Building a Garden, April 2005

I've never seen anything as romantic as the 18th-century herb garden that Glen Hillman, a Litchfield, Connecticut, homeowner, created in a space formerly occupied by his swimming pool. He didn't just stop at the plantings; wooden benches, a fish pond, and birdhouses make this true landscape architecture.
