Notes:
Featured in this garden: leaded conservatory, mosaic garden, perennial borders, parterres, gazebo, rose gardens, woodland garden, and white garden. What began with the design with Carl Neels was a series of garden rooms. The first room consisted of a rockerty, then another larger rockery with a pool and small waterfall, so that the sound of water could be a feature of the garden. Next came a potager with parterre and surrounding hedge. A cutting garden is at the right of a gazebo with "Flora," and an annual garden with box parterres is at the right, making a short vista to the gazebo. There are four wooden tuteurs in the four corners of the boxwood parterres. The owners call this garden "The Victorian Garden". A bronze stature of three life-sized putti holding up an urn is in the center of this area. The "room" next to the vegetable garden is a children's garden. A bordered path leads to a playhouse. The White Garden, inspired by Sissingurst, includes brick wall with niches.
Persons associated with the property include: Will Lang (architect, 1946?); Roberto Gonzalez (gardener, 1986); and Carl Neels (landscape architect, 1991);.
Summary:
The folders include garden plan, narrative description, copies of photographs, oral history sheet, copies of articles, and work sheet.
