While Marian and Bruce were living abroad, they grew fond of the European gardens they visited, so when it became time to build their own oasis, they naturally drew inspiration from French and other European gardens that they loved. The fall of water from the large fountain in the middle of the parterre creates a serene, calming effect throughout the garden, while the rose bushes around the fountain provide a lovely scent. The back garden is a delightful spot for mingling and enjoying the sun setting over the river during dinner parties.
