Notes:
Originally designed as an urban oasis with views of Pikes Peak, the gardens contained natives plants and a few exotics. The aim was to have a garden that was colorful and easy to maintain. During the mid 1908's the rock garden was added on a challenging slope.
Persons associated with the property include: Chapman (former owner, 1950); Doug Crouch (former owner, 1960); Jim Sutherland (former owner, 1980); Mrs. Kathleen Marriage (landscape architect, 1950's); Debbie Wright (gardener, designer, 1984 - present); and Marie Haskins (master gardener, maintenance, 1990's).
