Notes:
Simonds and West designed formal and informal areas in the design plan. In 1933, the garden included a walled garden and a pool reminiscent of the pool at Saint Catherine's Court at Batheaston in Somerest. Transitions between the formal and informal were gradual with straight walks leading through the picking garden and the woods. "Thorns, wild roses and native material predominate in the planting." (Garden Club of America Annual Meeting, June 1933)
Persons associated with the garden include: Mrs. Mark W. Cresap (former owner, 1929-); Edwin H. Clark (architect of house, 1929); and Simonds & West (landscape architects, 1929).
