The Fisken Garden (Bainbridge Island, Washington)
The house was built as a summer house prior to 1919. The garden plan consists of simple outlines to harmonize with the design of the house. No one feature stands out as a focus. A wide stance of lawn dotted with flowering shrubs and trees sits in front of the house. At the back of the house, a wide open terrace overlooks Puget Sound. Since the creation of the garden, more flower beds have been added. The gardens are planted out with northwest natives along with bulbs and perennials common to an English garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Alexander McEwen (former owner, 1912-1940); David Adams (courtyard in front of house); and Charles Price & Glen Withey (landscape designers, flower beds).
The folder contains a work sheet, garden features plan, and magazine clippings.
