The garden of Freeland and Sabrina Tanner in Napa, California, is a stunning masterpiece of cultivation. Every corner reveals another thoughtful feature, from the handmade tuteurs to the fascinating collection of vintage gardening tools. But it's the subtle design details that you don't consciously notice that make this garden exceptional.

In the January/February 2011 issue of Fine Gardening (#137), we visit this garden, and we focus on the details that set it apart. We knew you’d want to see more than we could feature in four pages, so here's a slideshow of 20 additional photos of this expansive garden.

It has integrity: its variety occurs within a firmly held sense of place and design so that nothing becomes "cute. Thanks for making it available online. Posted: 11:30 pm on June 16th
