Notes:
Construction of the Prairie style house built on multiple levels over an abandoned gravel pit began in 1941. William Deknatel, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, designed the house and may have consulted with the garden. According to a primary source, no other professional designer was involved. The previous owners, from 1941 to the late 1960s maintained the garden themselves. As of 2002, the garden appeared abandoned.
