Taylor Garden (Ketchum, Idaho)
This 14-acre site features a half-acre perennial garden, which also includes some self-seeding annuals, shrubs, and trees. The pool house is surrounded with shrubs, lilies, hostas, ferns, and red twig dogwood, while the main house has foundation plantings of red twig dogwood, sand cherry, and juniper. The guest house has lawn on one side and a wildflower meadow. From the pool the lawn slants down to a stream with water plants and a meadow opposite. The site then runs to another stream and the Big Wood River.
Persons associated with the garden include: Elizabeth T. Taylor (landscape designer, 1986); Richard Emik (landscape architect, 1987-1988); Dates Fryberger (architect, 1972); Paul Matthes (gardener, 1993-1996); and Mr. and Mrs. John Weekes (former owners, before 1972).
The folder includes worksheets and a summary garden plan.
