The loggia opens onto a lawn with a colorful English border garden, named Jessica’s Garden for its designer. Two Lutyens benches in that garden, from Gaithersburg-based Country Casual Teak, closely follow the English architect Edwin Lutyens’ original design. “If you like European and classical gardens, in Europe that’s what they put in their gardens,” says Madeline Fairbanks, product development manager at Country Casual Teak, with whom the Newhalls have worked.

 

Insights into all the garden rooms, along with more than 200 photos, fill “Brightside Gardens: A Dialogue Between The Head and The Heart.” Chuck self-published the book last year. Though he’s not planning more garden rooms, Brightside will continue to grow and change, Chuck says. “I don’t think a garden is ever finished.”

 

“Brightside Gardens: A Dialogue Between The Head and The Heart” by Charles W. Newhall III is available at the Ivy Bookshop, 6080 Falls Road, and on amazon.com for $69.95. For more information, find Bibliotheca Brightside Publishing on Facebook.
