Notes:
The property was covered in blacktop from the road to the studio in 1975. The paving was removed and borders around the pool fence were double-dug and planned predominantly as perennial gardens with some shrubs, vines, and annuals. After a trip to Williamsburg, former owners planted boxwood at the front steps and wisteria over the door. A "kitchen garden," and shade garden were also added.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Chuck Close (former owners, late 1970s); Ms. Jill Keefe and John Klos (former owners, ?-mid. 1980s); and Francis Fleetwood (architect, ca. 1985).
