Notes:
Established in 1982, this two-acre site was originally part of a large estate that was subdivided. From this property many beautiful existing plantings (laurel, viburnum, dogwood, forsythia, etc.) were retained as part of the new garden. Using plantings and colors that appealed to them, the garden's owners tried to maintain a natural style with no special theme. In 1988 plantings of unusual evergreens were added in the back of the site behind a waterfall in order to reduce the amount of leaves in the pool. The garden displays color in all seasons. Daffodils in the spring are planted amidst blue ajuga under pink and white azaleas. Daylily and hosta borders and a small Bonica rose bed highlight the summer, while sedum and daisies bloom in the autumn. Pots of tree roses on the terrace with mixed annuals provide additional color on the terrace.
Persons associated with the garden include: Florence Boogaerts (landscape advisor, 1988 to date) and Vincent Lorenti (gardener, 1982 to date).
