1985-1999
Notes:
This .75-acre garden was established in 1983. Landscape architect Robert M. Fletcher was active in its design between 1983 and 1989. Although the house is in the Colonial Revival style, the garden is diverse in both style and plantings, and parts of it reflect Fletcher's interest in xeriscaping. A large California sycamore tree (Platanus racemosa) highlights the front garden, while the lawn is bordered by a deep perennial border with many 'Iceberg' roses. A flowering dogwood is adjacent to the house. The rear garden has many interesting planting beds. Bearded iris flank one brick walkway.
Persons associated with the property include: Robert M. Fletcher (landscape architect and photographer).

Fletcher Collection in the Archives of American Gardens, while 12 slides taken in 1999 are part of the Garden Club of America Collection in the Archives of American Gardens.
