Notes:
Ellistan is a country property with views of the surrounding open fields and hills. The name came from Ellistan Boy, the horse that dropped dead after jumping a fence on the property during the Jersey Hunt Cup Race in 1919. Originally, the estate was a self-contained farm with no trees. Trees were planted in the 1930s. The garden areas consist of the formal garden including the water lily pool, the terrace garden, and the children's garden. The main garden is an "old-fashioned" formal garden with straight paths, walls, hedges and deep herbaceous borders. To the east, a hurdle fence with Coral Dawn and Eden roses frames the perennial bed. The terrace garden, at the back of the main house, is designed as an evening garden.
Summary:
The folders include work sheets and narrative descriptions.
