Chandor Gardens is, once again, a place of beauty and intrigue. While the hardscape of paths, ponds, fountains, waterfalls, and grottoes remains essentially unchanged, the plantings reflect a far more diverse palette of species than was ever utilized by Douglas. This is partially due to a much larger and denser tree canopy than in Douglas' day, which has reduced the amount of sunlight within the garden, and partially due to the necessity to make the garden interesting and colorful year round.

Each season is distinctly different at Chandor Gardens, and each year brings different color schemes, so that garden guests always find something new and different to see. And while the plantings may change often, the spirit remains the same, a reverent testimony to the brilliant Englishman who came to Texas and built a garden.
