Enjoying Garden Maturity

Thirty years ago, Sally Reynolds began visualizing her home landscape. Now dubbed ‘Mille Fleurs’, her underlying goal was to have long views, garden rooms to wander through, deep foundation plantings, and lovely vistas. Now, with time, those goals have been realized. Troy Marden visits with his ole garden design friend for a retrospective of the choices over the years, a discussion of some of her favorite plants, and highlights of this garden’s evolution.
