Notes:
It is seldom that a house is built with the landscape designs already planned. The original owners of this property had Landscape Architect Doan Ogden design the site for their house before it was built. It is nearly entirely dependent on foliage and texture. The house itself takes up nearly all the flat area of the lot and consequently the garden areas are long and narrow. Other houses are not visible from the 1.5 acre property and all the living rooms of the house are designed to take advantage of the views. The garden is designed for ease of maintenance. The extraordinary view serves as a constant inspiration. Over the years, some trees have matured, died and have been replaced or removed. The walkway has been paved rather than the original crushed stone. However, the property remains, remarkably, true to the original design. The current owners have added a "grass garden" to an area where the trees had been lost to storms.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Richard Emmet (former owners, 1970-1996); Mr. Doan Ogden (Landscape Architect, 1972); "Deck House" MFG Post and Beam Construction, Acton, Mass. (Builder).
Summary:
The folder includes a work sheet, copy of landscape drawing, and landscape plan with plant list.
