Notes:
Designed around 1966 by Thomas D. Church and Associates, this garden in a wooded setting provided an atmosphere for reflection on and appreciation of its surroundings. Stone walls, terraces, and walkways defined spaces at the front and back of the house as well as the pool area. This hardscaping was complemented by sculpture, green lawns, and seasonal plantings of bulbs, flowering shrubs, and similarly colorful accents. The overall impression was one of openness and simplicity. The property was designated as an arboretum by the Nashville Tree Foundation in 1988.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Thomas D. Church and Associates (landscape architects, 1966) and David K. and Anne Potter Wilson (former owners).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, a short biography of the former property owner, and other information.
