Notes:
This garden site lies within a house lot of 16 acres, adjacent to a 110-acre vineyard. The land was once part of the Gulf Hill Dairy, but was purchased by the current owner in 1980. It is now an active vineyard producing 70-80 tons of grapes per year. In 1992 the 1802 farmhouse was moved to the sloping house site, which required extensive stone terracing. Huge granite slabs and steps were designed and constructed to form a sunny terrace. Sunny groundcovers, herbs, heaths, heathers, and bearberry combine with specimen plants to create an easily maintained landscape.
Persons associated with the garden include David Farias (stonemason, 1994-1996)
