Jodie's Treasures (Columbus, Ohio)
Situated in the Sessions Village area of Columbus, this .19 acre garden (52 x 157 feet) was begun in 1988 when the current owners added specimen plantings of trees and shrubs to the existing stand of trees at the rear of the property. Underplantings of shrubs and shade-tolerant perennials and annuals surround an open oval of grass that abuts the patio area. The patio, entered from a gate off the driveway or from the rear door of the house, serves as an outdoor living room. The garden is totally enclosed by a stucco wall, the walls of adjoining buildings and a board fence. The patio--with its pool and fountain, rose garden, espaliered plants, colorful annuals and perennials, specialty trees and shrubs--offers the owners a place of quiet repose in which to enjoy their pride and joy, a fern-leaved beech, Fagus sylvatica 'Asplenifolia'.
Persons associated with the property include David Voyles (landscape designer, 1988); Robert Reeves, Jr. (architect, 1957); Richard Schmidt (nurseryman, 1989); and Jodie Montgomery Ferguson (garden designer, 1988).
