This blogpost is solely pictures from one of the gardens, in my mind the most impressive.
The gardener is also an award winning quilter, and you can see this in her subtle blending of colors, shapes, and types of plants. The park-like setting and size of her garden also made me drool a bit, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

I got the impression this back deck was a newer area; it wasn't as finely honed and integrated into the back yard as the yard itself. There was a lot of space and as all gardeners want to do, she was busy filling it. Her garden was a surprisingly four years old, but she conceded she had brought some good sized hostas with her from her previous garden.
As I mentioned, though plant selection for color and texture was where she excelled.

She also, in my opinion, had the best garden ornamentation.
