Notes:
An English cottage-style garden, Topsfield has been described as a "bowlfull of flowers." Created by its owner especially for the months of July and August, it has two sections. The formal enclosed garden off the kitchen has a western exposure. Facing east and south, the other side of the house has a perennial/annual garden and lawn with views of Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier. The property is surrounded by Douglas fir and other native trees on the northwest and southern perimeters. The house was designed by Carl Gould as a honeymoon cottage for his bride, Dorothy Fay, in 1915. Summer perennials, annuals, and climbing roses comprise the major plantings of this "summer" garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Carl Frelinghuysen and Dorothy Fay Gould (former owners, 1915-1976); Mr. and Mrs. Carl Frelinghuysen Gould, Jr. (former owners, 1976-2000); Charles Price (landscape designer, 1997); Glen Withey (landscape designer, 1997); and Terry Wein (masonry designer and builder, 2000).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, a plant list, and a photocopy of a 1998 Japanese-language article about the garden, with English translation.
