Church Cloister Garden

St. Martin's Episcopal

The Cloister Garden was inspired by the cathedral gardens of the Middle Ages, where a garth or courtyard, open to the sky, was enclosed by the walls of the church and covered arcaded walkways of the cathedral’s monastic residential buildings. The quadrangle was designed as a place where monks could ambulate, pray and meditate while enjoying fresh air without leaving the monastery. The medieval inspired plan features a fountain set at the center of crossed paths dividing the garden into quadrants, each with a lawn pad and boxwood parterres accented with ornamental flower beds. The clipped fig ivy walls accentuate the arcade of pointed gothic arches continuing the medieval spirit of the church.
