Notes:
The house accompanying this garden site, overlooking Buzzards Bay, was built in 1964 on four acres of dairy farm pasture. In the succeeding years its fine trees and shrubs have matured. Vegetable gardens are surrounded by espaliered fruit trees. There are heath and heather gardens, a sunken garden featuring alpine troughs, perennial beds, a caged blueberry patch, a compost area, and a daffodil collection succeeded by grasses. The garden has received gold and silver medals from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.
Persons associated with the property include: Blanche Frenning (landscape designer, 1964); Lloyd Lawton (landscape designer, 1964); Allen C. Haskell (horticulturist, 1970, 1974, and 1987); and Chris Tracy (landscape designer, 1986).
