Notes:
The garden originally consisted of a small formal garden facing the road. The rest of the property contained an old apple orchard. The owners cleared some of the trees and moved the garden farther to the back of the house in 1983 in order to use it as a way of defining a ravine edge, giving a sweeping view across the back acres. Large yew bushes provide an anchor and focal point in the winter. Perennial beds faded into flowering shrubs and trees backed by woods and the ravine. In 1991, a garden room addtion led to the creation of the water garden, now, the major feature of the property. The water garden was re-designed in 1997. Much of the design of the gardens has been done by the owner.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Brian Sherwin (former owner, ? - 1970); and Mr. Charles Knight (landscape architect, 1983).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets,.plans, newspaper article, and copy of aerial photograph.
