Chafton Place (Charleston, West Virginia)
This garden is an example of what can be achieved in a small place. It has an interesting balance of paved and garden areas. Umberto Innocenti designed a terrace overlooking a thirty-two acre sloping woodland area of maple, walnut, beech, oak, poplar, and dogwood trees. A circular driveway was designed by Alice Ireys. A small perennial garden and a lap pool is defined by pierced brick walls.
Persons associated with the garden include: Umberto Innocenti (landscape architect, 1980); Alice Ireys (landscape architect, 1982); Ludwig Bengston (architect of house, 1952); and Lynne Schwartz-Barker (garden designer, 1986).
The folder includes a work sheet, a garden plan, and a plant list.
