2000-2004
Notes:
Constructed in the spring of 1984 by Jim Carpenter and designed by Mrs. Margaret Marshall, this 30 by 33 foot garden is composed of three large raised beds, a brick floor, and a grapevine-covered lattice roof arbor with a surrounding lattice fence. The garden design serves the needs of the physically and mentally challenged. The 24 inch raised beds of colorful annuals and perennials are the correct height for a seated gardener and form an octagonal shape. The garden also views well from the south-facing rear sunroom and the trellised shelter under the grapevine. The center fountain creates a quiet meditative space in this tranquil garden in the midst of a busy city.
Persons associated with the property include: Jim Carpenter (builder, sculptor, 1983) and Margaret Marshall (designer, gardener, 1983-present).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, and newspaper articles.
