Harold S. Schutt, Jr. Residence (Wilmington, Delaware)
The half-acre garden changed several times since the 1950s by design of the owner. Perennial borders have given over to formal pachysandra and boxwood. An ironwork gate, furniture, and lead garden features add interest to the space. Thirty-five year old dwarf conifers were placed int he rock garden with many evergreen and flowering shrubs.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Mrs. Lillian Schutt Armbrecht (former owner, 1938-1948); Wallace Landscape Services; James Buckler (gardener); and Paul Meyer (gardener).
The folder includes worksheets and site plan.
