Gorgeous Gardens: Formal Garden With Fountains

Once part of the historic Cheswold Estate out in Haverford, Penn., this carriage house was purchased and thoughtfully restored in 2014. Now the property features three formal gardens, including a courtyard full of lavender and roses. Tiered fountains and trimmed hedges enhance the beautiful, European aesthetic.

Front Courtyard and Fountain

Guests arriving at this beautiful home get to wander through the front courtyard, past gardens and around a fountain, on their way to the front door.

Front Courtyard at Night

Landscape lighting shines a spotlight on special plants and architectural details.

Entrance to Front Courtyard

The entrance to this courtyard, out front of the home, is handsomely dressed up with an iron arch and lantern.

Trimmed Hedge and Pink Flowers

The center of this patio has a formal garden moment, with a clipped hedge brightened by pink blooms and fountain. Container gardens overflow with flowers at each end of the hedge.

Poolside Patio and Four Lounge Chairs

Colorful gardens in a mix of green, purple and white make a beautiful backdrop for the pool and a quartet of lounge chairs.

Stone Outdoor Stairs With Planters

Steps leading down to the swimming pool are as fresh and lovely as the home's other outdoor areas, bordered by ivy, colorful planters and newly designed garden beds.
