Jan and Lane Savage wanted a garden oasis with an ever-changing showcase of flora. To fulfill their vision, Garden Designer Troy Rhone created a unique garden with terraces climbing the slopes of their mountainside property. The result is a living amphitheater, with radiant performers that include peonies, roses, and dahlias.
Around the garden, Troy included nectar-rich plants to invite bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds—all of which fly daintily among the petals. To explore the tranquil have, there are wooden steps, a gravel walkway, and a path of stepping stones.
This “Summer Sanctuary” garden design even includes a statue of Saint Francis of Assisi, which takes pride of place beneath the window of his wife’s sewing room.
