Notes:
"The 16 slides show the progression of the garden from the entrance gate past the recirculating stream that ends in a beautiful pond at one end of the garden. There is a gravel garden area and several benches to stop by. Tall Douglas Firs encircle the whole site, so there is a dramatic change from the very suburban landscape this office building inhabits. (A steak house, a Union 76 gas station, a mini-mall strip)
"The garden is almost 15 years old, and has been constantly maintained by Kurisu, International. It is always presentable for viewing. Hoichi Kurisu has done many landscapes in Portland, Oregon. It was difficult choosing his best work. We looked at homes and huge condominium developments. We chose this design because it has created a real oasis of beauty in a very chaotic suburban sprawl area. He is a very talented and capable landscape designer."
Persons associated with the property include: Oregon Dental Association (owner); Kurisu International, Inc. (landscape architectural firm); Hoichi Kurisu (President of Kurisu International, Inc.).
