If you have ever visited New York City, you have most likely seen one of Lynden Miller’s gardens. From Central Park to the New York Botanical Garden, she has been instrumental in creating some of the city’s most memorable public gardens.

What is less known is that she refined her skills at home, where for the past 30 years she has worked on a 175-foot-long mixed border just outside her back door.

Here are some photos of her private garden.
