Notes:
Henry Lane was subdivided from a farm in 1949. The owners chose the two acre property because of its variety of conditions--a steep south-facing slope, a house on a ridge, a wooded hillside leading to a stream, a former farm pond, and a screen of Norway spruces. The renovation began with dry stone-walled terraces and loose stone patios laced with rock garden plants. Controlling erosion, and limiting lawn to flatter areas only, motivated the planting of many ground cover plants.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Crozer (former owners, 1949); Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Pemberton (former owners, ?); Fred Bissinger (house renovation architect, 1992-93); Camille and Corey Leavitt (sculptors of porch wall hangings, ca. 1997); and Richard MacDonald (sculptor of "Romeo," 2000).
Summary:
The folder includes a work sheet, list of bloom times, and site plan.
