Notes:
This 1.3 acre site has been a work in progress since 1976, although its adjoining house dates to 1950. The particular part of the garden documented here features stone and design work by Tyler Morgan and includes huge slabs of marble used for retaining walls. The fragrant ground cover, Pinus densiflora 'Umbraculifera', also known as Japanese Red Pine or Tanyosho, used under the very architectural trees, is another special feature. A variety of conifers and other plantings provide interest throughout the seasons.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Tyler Morgan (garden designer and stone contractor, 1999-2001) and Artist Garden Stoneworks (stone contractors, 1999-2001).
