Notes:
This compact Holly Pond site includes a great variety of plantings and several distinct seating areas. Plants on the flood plain are saltwater-resistant. Most of the wide borders are mulched with stone. There is a sizeable vegetable garden next to this 1872 carriage house, as well as other edible landscaping. The design adheres to many of the principles of feng shui. The owners favor a naturalistic garden style, generally preferring perennials to annuals and native species to exotic ones. Most of the plantings are only a year or two old.
Persons associated with the garden include: Towne family (former owners); Sharon Slocum (garden designer, 1996); and Alex Stotine (contractor, 1996).
