The Driftwood Garden (Northeast Harbor, Maine)
The garden entrance off the brick terrace is located on the water side of the house. A formal rectangular section with borders of annuals and perennials was designed by Harold Kneedler, Jr. The owner enlarged paths up the hill with a small waterfall to a larger informal garden with playhouse tool shed, vegetables and a herbaceous border. Walking further, you find a guest cottage with a circular pool. Woody plants predominate with trees
Person(s) associated with the garden include(s): Patrick Grant, Sr. (former owner, 1927-1928); Mr. and Mrs. Schofield Andrews, Sr. (former owners, 1928-1970); Tilden, Register & Pepper (architects, 1927); and Howard Kneedler (landscape architect, 1970- ).
The folders includes a work sheet, copy of photograph and site map.
