When the garden was acquired by Mr. and Mrs. Miles White, Jr. about ten years ago, the box which outlived the design, and which was, of course, a great feature of the original plan, was in very sad condition, having had no special care for many years. It has now been pruned and fed and shows the result of such treatment.

This garden is one of the most charming examples of the early 19th century garden and like the one at Hampton illustrates the revival of knot designs.
