The Plants: Paired American boxwoods (Buxus sempervirens) flank the formal lawn. At each end, pyramidal 'Emily Bruner' hollies (Ilex 'Emily Bruner') are centered within a hedge of variegated boxwoods (B. sempervirens 'Elegantissima'). Three chaste trees (Vitex agnus-castus) anchor the sides of the pavilion.
The Details: The pavilion gains importance by being raised three steps above grade. Low, wide stone steps run its entire width.
