Notes:
This one-third acre garden is located in Sessions Village in Columbus, Ohio, a planned community of 29 free standing homes in the architectural style of a walled French village. Its artist-owner's passion for all things relating to the gardens of southern France inspired her to engage a landscape architect whom she primed with words and images of her personal vision and with whom she created a plan that was implemented in 2006. With "no grass" as a design mandate, a comprehensive plan was developed that could be implemented in stages beginning with the rear garden. Few changes had been made to the 1960s garden of the original owners. However, wherever possible existing trees and shrubs were saved and incorporated into the new design. Strong sight lines were created with the use of sweeping paths of brown gravel and bluestone insets. Lavender is used prolifically as an edging plant and boxwood hedges encircle prominent trees and garden features. Perimeter areas along the fence enclosure are pocketed with an abundance of shrubs, shade perennials, and colorful annuals. Masses of seasonal flowers, selected for a succession of bloom, offer the owner-artist an ever-changing palette of colors and a subject for home-based plein air painting.
Persons and firms associated with the site and garden include Mark R. Schieber (landscape architect, 2006); Architectural Gardens, Inc. (landscape architects, 2006); Preston and Julia Davis (former owners, 1962-2005); and Tibbals, Crumley and Musson (architects, 1961).
There is additional documentation of other gardens in Sessions Village. See OH230000-235000.
