Gardens

Castle Hill’s formal gardens were featured in an article written by Gertrude Potts published in the Historic Gardens of Virginia (The James River Garden Club, Richmond, 1923). The great box-hedges which stand at the top of the gardens are considered to be some of the tallest and most impressive boxwood in Virginia. The current expanded, multi-terraced and symmetrical formal gardens were designed in 1997 by Landscape architect Rachel M. Lily.

Famous quotes containing the word gardens:

    These are the Gardens of the Desert, these
    The unshorn fields, boundless and beautiful,
    And fresh as the young earth, ere man had sinned—
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

    Thou didst create the night, but I made the lamp.
    Thou didst create clay, but I made the cup.
    Thou didst create the deserts, mountains and forests,
    I produced the orchards, gardens and groves.
    It is I who made the glass out of stone,
    And it is I who turn a poison into an antidote.
    Muhammad, Sir Iqbal (1873–1938)

    The devout have laid out gardens in the desert.
    Robert Duncan (b. 1919)
