Lakeside Paradise

The Garden of Jere and Richard Stevens

132 Lochwood West Drive

Cary

The garden of Richard and Jere Stevens, a Master Gardener, are designed to take full advantage of their borrowed landscape – the lovely Lake Lochmere.

Native trees are nestled among this magnificent garden.  The front garden makes a statement with a formal symmetrical brick courtyard with seating to give an opportunity to stop and smell the roses that line the garden beds.   Pruned boxwoods, topiaries, statuary, and teak benches give a distinct English garden feel.

Wide brick paths lead you to the back gardens.  The sound of soothing water slows the journey.  The sights of the pond, arbor, gazebo and of course the lake beyond, calls you in.  Peak over the expansive lakeside viewing deck to visit with the white swan, turtles, ducks, and abundant fish.
