Shanti Garden, Bronxville, NY
Shanti means ‘Peace' in Sanskrit and this garden, with its series of lush, elegant and surprising garden ‘rooms' lives up to its name. While each room has its own unique feel from a formal walking garden to an exuberant butterfly garden, they all offer the visitor tranquility. All are punctuated by superb stonework and elegant and unique plantings. You will find very little lawn here and instead find flowering shrubs, trees, perennials, grasses, and even unusual and striking annuals planted to delight human and butterfly visitors. This exquisite garden is the result of a close working and personal relationship between the owners and the garden's designer: together they have created a year-round living work of art.
