Schreiber Garden (Shaker Heights, Ohio)
A suburban garden established in 1990, the design reflects a changing lifestyle from the 1929 house. The purpose of the new garden is to create a view from the now popular kitchen--the social gathering place in the home. A stone circle was added to the 1980s brick terrace to provide a link to the new flower borders. The allowed for the incorporation of the old garage (aggrandized with a fountain, raised beds, and treillage). A wooden gazebo became the focal terminus of the garden. Sixteen years on roses smother the gazebo; the hedges have grown tall; and the family enjoys the view year 'round.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Clarence and Ellen Carhin (former owners, 1928-1985); Maggie Williams (garden designer, 1990); Leon Bihun (artisan craftsman, 1991-present); and Helen Schreiber (gardener, 1991-present).
