Dubose-Eliel Garden (East Hampton, New York)
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).
