Notes:
This garden comprises two-thirds of an acre, with its basic design thought to be by Thomas D. Church. Robert Clark has been responsible for additional design work since the acquisition of the property in the 1970s by the current owners. The garden's focal point is the round pool ringed by low-lying boxwood and seasonal plantings, featuring white tulips in the spring and white impatiens the remainder of the year. A crushed gravel path leads to the pool and encircles it. Paths extend from the pool in three directions, one going to the gazebo, another to the statuary, and a third to the arbors on the east side of the garden. A rose garden to the west of the gazebo completes the picture. The effect is open yet private, restful, and somewhat formal. It is an amazing balance.
Persons associated with the garden include: Frank C. Baum (former owner, 1912-1920); the Pyzel family (former owners, 1920-1974); William Hayes (architect, 1912); Thomas D. Church (landscape architect); and Robert Clark (landscape designer).
