Notes:
This garden in a woodland setting incorporates the "garden room" concept in its design. Complementing a house designed by Courtney Paul Macomber and constructed in 1968, the gardens, also designed by Macomber, progress from the formal planting of the entry forecourt to more naturalistic plantings in the rear of the property. The many windows of the house look out onto a series of garden rooms on the terrace, which overlooks a meadow. Additional landscape design by Dick Gale in 1973 widened paths through beds and borders of flowering shrubs and other plants. The overall design integrates formality and informality. Several notable works of sculpture, some of which are now the property of art institutions in Indianapolis, punctuated the setting.
Persons associated with the garden include: Courtney Paul Macomber (architect and landscape architect, 1968) and Dick Gale (landscape architect, 1973), and Mr. and Mrs. Frank C. Springer, Jr. (former owners, 1968-2006).
Summary:
The folders include work sheets, photocopied pages from a book featuring the garden, contemporary (2007) images of the property from the Internet, and other information.
