Notes:
This is a small, secluded, hillside garden with the ground rising steeply behind the house. The living room opens out onto a patio marked by two old specimens of dogwood. From here, steps lead up to another terrace which features a walk of quarry stone and river washed pebbles. In spring, it is bordered by plants in a pastel palette of tulips, scillas and pansies that complement the pink and white of the dogwoods. Winding paths of thick quarry flagstone lead beneath a Japanese Snowbell tree and a Japanese maple. Low walls of fieldstone retain the soil. At the top of the hill, 30 ft. above the house floor level, is a rustic Japanese-style garden pavilion built by Peter Wechsler.
Persons associated with the garden include: Frank Randolph (former owner, 1972 - 1977); Peter Wechsler (master carpenter, 1984 - 1988); and Florence Everts (garden designer, 1979).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, article in "Garden Design" Magazine, photocopies of garden from book publications, and map.
