Hillside Gardens (Gig Harbor, Washington)
Two major loops form the design of this two-acre garden. The first begins at the pond that fronts the Asian-style home. Inside the gate, is a "Sweet Pea Teeppee," several Peony trees and samples of cement art made by the owner. A series of planned plateaus provides places for roses, strawberries, verbena, and vegetables.These plateaus, as well as the entire garden, are managed by a 26 zone sprinkling system, two wells and a large holding tank. A waterfall ends in a natural looking pond surrounded by a rock garden to form the entry garden.
Person(s) associated with the garden include: R. David Adams (landscape architect, 1994).
The folder includes worksheets, a garden plan, and narrative description by owner.
