Brightside Gardens were created between 1983 and 2015. With one exception, my wife Amy and I designed all 54 gardens ourselves. Brightside is a garden of beauty, which is its heart, and a garden of the mind representing a dialog between the heart and the head. The colors of the plants, trees and flowers in the garden are mirrored in the colors, fabrics and artwork of our home. The forms of the neoclassical furniture inside are repeated in the stone hardscape outside. Along the path and at most gardens, there are quotes from literature, philosophy and poetry engraved on bronze plaques. They have classical in neoclassical sculpture. Each garden name is associated with the meaning of the garden and contains the Victorian language of flowers.
