Whitney Garden (Wayzata, Minnesota)
This two-acre garden, established in 1988, is distinguished by its 21 raised granite beds filled with annuals, perennials, and vegetables. A lilac and hosta-lined walk proceeds through granite piers to the lower part of the property, while a wildflower garden and a white garden are found in a recess on the lake side of the property. An allée stretches the length of the outside of the property from the lake through the 21 raised beds, through granite piers down to the lower property, ending in evergreens. The vista continues the length of the east side of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Harrison Fraker (architect, 1988) and Michael Van Valkenburgh (landscape architect, 1988).
The folder includes a worksheet and a garden plan.
