Notes:
Located on a 1,600 square foot lot, this garden has been under development only since 2005. Reflecting the Craftsman style architecture of the house, the design includes features ranging from an outdoor fireplace and "dining room" to a safe play area for the family dog. A rear garden includes terraced planting areas surrounding a pergola-covered patio with a wood-burning fireplace. A daybed is built into the terrace wall with one view down the side garden featuring ferns, hydrangeas, a mature tree, and other bushy plants. Terraced against the garage side wall is an herb garden with two espaliered fruit trees. The curving lines of the front garden border continue the lines of two contiguous properties, while there are small bulb and perennial planting areas at the junction of the front walk and the sidewalk. A diversity of plant material makes this a rich garden that belies its relatively small size.l
Firms associated with the garden include the Schmechtig Landscape Company (landscape deaigners and contractors, 2006).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, detailed site plans with a plant list, and other information.
