Moon Rise Garden (Chevy Chase, Maryland)
Established from 1991-1992, the garden was built on three levels. A flagstone patio is on the house level. A small gold fish pond with a fountain set in a stone wall frames one end towered over by mature azaleas. A low wall topped by large boxwoods separate and shield from the patio a view of the swimming pool, which is surrounded by tall Burford hollies. The other half of the garden beyond the patio is reached by a wide stone stairway to the highest garden area of an oval grass center surrounded by perennial beds. This level features a gazebo and garden bench from which one can watch the moon rise over the pool.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Ben Saunders (former owners, 1935); and Susan Feller of Garden Works Design (garden designer, 1991-1992).
The folder includes a work sheet, slide view plan, and plant list.
