Sinquefield’s Private Garden

Lorna and I spent the morning getting a tour of one of the most remarkable private gardens we’ve ever seen. Jeanne Sinquefield drove us around the 1,000 acre estate. Among the many things we saw were a golf course, an arboretum, a Japanese garden, a geodesic dome hothouse and a spectacular lake with a glass-walled contemporary building off to one side.

There are many ideas I got as we looked around but one stood out: consider adding big rocks to the garden landscape. Jeanne showed us hundreds of rocks that have been added.

    Picture looks lovely. My kind of garden.
    Wouldn’t importing rocks mark a serious departure from the prairie nature of your garden?
