Notes:
Established in 2000, this fenced seaside garden nestles in a low area at the bottom of a hill surrounded by a ledge and woodland, protecting it from harsh ocean winds. Nine 4' x 10' redwood raised beds are 18" high, making vegetable gardening easy. A large natural ledge provides nooks and crannies for plants, and also provides background and shelter for a variety of evergreens and shrubs. Rocks and stone are used everywhere for steps, wall, paths, etc. to blend with the ledge. "French drains" designed with Asian influences, draing heavy spring run-off downhill. Indigenous plants are encouraged and blended in with a large array of evergreens--fir, spruce, pine, and juniper.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Helen Horn (garden designer of fenced garden, wee barn, and adjacent landscaped and hardscaped areas); Michael Horn (stone walls); Kevin Garfield (mason and builder); and John Patten of Patten Ground Services, Inc. (plantings).
Summary:
The folders include a work sheet and site plan.
