Garden #2

“Paz de Cielo” 

 

This large showcase garden, located in the high Tunnel Springs foot hills, has been designed with multiple garden rooms taking in stunning panoramic views of the Jemez Mountains to the North, the West Mesas, and the Sandia Mountains to the south.

 

In addition to an abundance of aspens, conifers and unique perennials, the owner has planted several climbing roses within her courtyard walls. The main courtyard gardens were originally designed and landscaped by Judith Phillips.  The courtyard gardens have since been updated by keeping true to Judith Philips xeric principles of planting.

 

The owner is a meticulous gardener and has mastered the art of decorating each of her garden rooms perfectly. You will enjoy exploring each room.
