Notes:
Lying on 3.2 acres adjacent to a marsh and creek, this site is highlighted by a Japanese-influenced 40' x 80' iris garden that also includes features of a cottage garden in keeping with its location by a low, rambling house. Designed in the early 1980s by Nancy B. Taylor of the landscape architecture firm Innocenti & Webel, the garden replaced what was formerly an asphalt driveway. Running the length of the garden are a dry riverbed and path, accented by two small bridges. Although there is no actual water in the garden, the use of different plants helps to simulate that effect. In addition to this garden, the site includes more natural areas with marsh and water views, as well as a swimming pool and herb garden.
Persons and firms associated with the property include Nancy B. Taylor (landscape architect, 1981); Mr. and Mrs. C. Gachot (former owners, 1956-1981); and Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1981).
Summary:
The folders include worksheets, site plans (one with a plant list), photocopies of an article about the garden, and additional information.
Publications:
Garden has been featured in Mac Griswold, "A New Orientation," Garden Design Magazine (Spring 1986), pp. 52-55+
