Untitled Garden (Hillsborough, California)
This two-acre site reflects the horticultural knowledge of its owner, who consistently works in and supervises all aspects of the maintenance of the garden. She designs the perennial borders known for their artistic sense of color and grows plants from seed. Major plantings include roses, bulbs, perennials, potted plants, and topiary. Of special interest is a metal arbor. The site is a portion of "El Cerrito," the former De Sabla property, and originally had a water tower, barn, and orchard. The well continues to supply water, one original fruit tree exists, and one old oak, Quercus Agrifolia, grows by the rose garden. Other oaks were moved to the property.
Persons associated with the property include: Thomas Church (landscape architect); David Kato (landscape architect); Carl Warneke (architect); Robert Steiner (architect); and George Livermore (architect).
The folder includes a worksheet and a copy of the garden plan. The garden is noted for its use of color and its horticultural sophistication.
