Notes:
Established in 1984, this 2.89 acre garden borders Neacoxie Creek on the east and sits up on a bluff overlooking the Necanicum Estuary to the south, with a distant view of Tillamook Head and the Pacific Ocean. The house is situated on the far most southern boundary, maximizing the land for a garden on its northern portion. Part of the garden is situated among a grove of mature Sitka spruce, with an understory of native plants. This area is known informally as the "Woodland Garden," while a sunnier area across the road is known as the "Formal Garden." The "Formal Garden" has a landscaped lawn with a wide variety of perennials, bulbs, fruit trees, ornamental shrubs, and Japanese maples. Part of this garden area is also used for vegetables and composting.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Craig Kiest (landscape architect); and Huntington & Kiest (landscape architects).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet and a garden plan.
