Notes:
The Blake Garden is an eleven acre estate which is part of the University of California at Berkley. Many of the plantings from the 1920's and 1930's are neglected and need to be redeveloped. Grotto built in 1926 is reminiscent of Villa Tusculana at Frascati, Italy at end of long pool lined with double row of magnolias. Two sets of small formal garden rooms flank pool and grotto area. Each has a central feature such as a ceramic Chinese sundance.
