Hagel-Donnally Garden (Westport, Connecticut)
When Mr. Hagel bought the property in 1971, the property consisted of a tangle of second growth trees and vines with a lot of weeds in front of the house. Hagel established a collection of woody plant specimens and perennials. In 1987, he met Mike Donnally, who started designing a planned garden. It is a year-around garden with trees with interesting shapes when they are dormant. The garden is slated to be destroyed in 2003 with change in ownership.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Raymond C. Hagel (former owner, 1971-2003); and Mike Donnally (landscape designer, 1988-2003).
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, and planting lists.
