Notes:
Porter and Waterman Brothers owned the heavily wooded property in 1959 and divided it into 70 lots. The present owners bought four lots for a total of 5.6 acres in the early 1960s. The steep, heavily wooded lot appealed to the owners and soon dug a pond. In 1997, the owners landscaped the property for a wedding, hence the name "Wedding Path" for the mulched footpath. A collection of native plants such as echinacea and amsonia cover a newly planted meadow garden near the pond.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Tremantana and Rowe (architects); Michael Harvey (planting, 2002-2003)
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, plant list, copies of articles and garden plan.
