Perkins Garden (Winnetka, Illinois)
Designed by Craig Bergmann, this one-acre garden's design also received significant input from its owner, who is an artist. The garden was installed in the early 1990s with some changes from year to year. The loss of a huge elm tree in 1997 precipitated changes and the addition of more sun-loving plants. The small knot garden on the patio is designed to reflect the leaded window in the patio door. The garden is often open to the public during Garden Conservancy Open Days.
Persons associated with the garden include: Craig Bergmann (landscape architect).
