Notes:
"The five acre French country garden was developed around a large stone house that sits high on an island in Oswego Lake. The meandering paths connect the garden's major features, including a formal rose garden, stone gazebo, natural ponds and waterfall, formal sculpture pool, stone boathouse, cantilevered stone dock, swimming pool and terrace, parking court and a parterre. The unusual planting, ranging from Cotinus obovatus and Poncius trifoliate to Corylopsis paucifloria and Coptis trifoliata are located in an open Douglas fir and Oregon white oak forested hillside."
