Baker Overlook

Created with excavated soil from the canal, this peaceful spot offers visitors a view of the waterway and surrounding gardens from its two-tier deck and gazebo. Relax under the shade of a mature oak tree overlooking broad sweeps of plants selected especially for their color and texture. Drought tolerant plants grow near the top of the hill while moisture loving plants thrive at the bottom.
