A Small City Garden in the Circle at Fairhill Village (Cleveland, Ohio)
Date:
1999
Notes:
The garden and house are located in a planned community with thirteen semi-detached and detached units built between 1929 and 1933.This is a city garden on a corner lot. It is L-shaped--both arms are very narrow. The arm on the south side abuts directly on to a busy thoroughfare. The main features are plantings of trees. An pleached row of holly trees has been carefully shaped into a topiary "hedge on stilts" has been balanced by the addition of an allee of crab apples on the other arm of the "L." The geometry of both is reinforced by hedges of yew and boxwood. The garden is subdivided into smaller areas, containing perennials, herbs, and seasonal plantings.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: A. Hadden and Olga C. (Towl) Alexander (former owners); Belle Sherwin (former owner); Donald F. and Barbara H. Stroup (former owner, 1955); Mrs. Bascom Little (former owner); Max M. and Louise E. Muller (former owners); A. Donald Gray (landscape architect, 1928); Harold Fullerton (village architect, 1928); Robert Goode (architect for new addition, 1993-1994); Maggie Williams (architect for new gardens, 1994); and James Brownfield (gardener, 1995).
