Notes:
Located on three acresthe garden is divided into smaller gardens with different themes. Garden designer Elizabeth Karp began the project by erecting seven brick pillars joined by four foot boxwood hedges on the north and south side of the entryway that enclose a blue and white garden. Continuing around to the rear of the residence, a patio garden room was created by building two mirror English-style patios with sitting walls featuring numerous moveable containers. A stone pathway leads to another room of naturalized plantings grown behind a box hedge. On the other side of the back patio is a parterre with a pathway around a knot garden. Due to seasonal standing water on the south side, drainage ditches were dug that eventually became a winding U-shaped stone path next to multi-level ponds with a wide grass lane and gazebo. Around the property are several other garden rooms planted with fruit trees, vegetables and herbs, ferns, roses, hostas, hellebores and conifers.
Amongst the gardens are several sculptures, statues, benches, pergolas and fountains, a sundial, urns, a weather vane, wood chip and stone trails. The property is surrounded by nylon deer fences, shrubs, trees, Norway Spruce, and Alberta Spruce.
Persons associated with the site include: Elizabeth Karp (garden designer).
