United States of America, Washington, Kitsap County, Bainbridge Island
Agate Nursery (Bainbridge Island, Washington)
"Seven acres on Bainbridge Island across from Puget Sound started as a woods and play area for five children and grew patch by patch into a absolutely beautiful garden."
"There is a serene pond (from ground water) with appropriate plantings, a planted terrace overlooking Puget Sound, paths winding charmingly between various planting areas, a walled garden, native material en masse, a grass garden with many varieties, a succulent plant area, a swimming pool surrounded by fences and trellises draped with plants."
"It is a horticultural gem - hundreds of varieties of plants from the Northwest and all over the world. Interestingly, the plants have determined the garden design rather than the reverse."
Persons associated with the property include: Nels Nelson (former owner from 1930 to 1953).
