Notes:
Located in the Biltmore Forest section of Asheville, this garden, established in 1962, was significantly altered and redesigned in the 1990s by J. Allan Zabriskie. A water feature with a streambed of rocks and a recirculating pool of water was added. Existing garden areas were replanted and a bank of plantings off the south side of the house was improved. These plantings have a natural appearance and include many native plants. Hemlock and rhododendron planted many years ago provide a screen between the house and its neighbors. Hemlock and oakleaf hydrangea are planted along the border between the lawn and the woodlands to the east of the property. The water feature and the bank to the right of it are planted with ferns, cathedral bells, dog hoble, dwarf evergreens, azaleas, boxwood, and maple. In the beds along the patio are shrubs such as holly, hydrangea, and dwarf fir, and perennials such as purple coneflower, balloon flower, and euphorbia. Some annuals such as zinnias and impatiens are added each year.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: the Biltmore Forest Company (former owner, before 1957); the Z. B. Robinson Construction Engineering Corporation (former owner, 1957-1960); Eugene J. and Dorothy Phillips (former owners, 1960-1961); All Souls Church (former owner, 1961-1998); Henry Gaines (architect, 1959); and J. Allan Zabriskie (landscape designer and gardener, 1998).
