Notes:
Located on less than an acre, Addington Garden is a very small unique English-styled garden established in 1990. The garden is enhanced with large boulders that give it interest and texture. Flowers of the same kind are grouped around the boulders at the entrance walkway that passes by an ivy-laden brick wall enclosing a 'secret garden' by the front door of the house. There are flower beds with tulips and daffodils, poppies, pansies and various other annuals, potted plants, trees and flowering shrubbery on the east and north sides of the house where they get morning sun for continuous blooming. A small shady seating area on the north lawn of the property has a low stacked stone retaining wall behind it planted with annuals and perennials that border the house. A courtyard with a fountain, sculpture, and potted plants is located on the west side of the house. The owner collects unique objects that are found throughout the garden.
Garden designer Pam Caldwell and John Morelock were landscape architects previously associated with the property. In addition providing a vision to the flower plantings, dandscape designer Carl Neels of Country Life Landscape also maintains the garden. The owner currently employes a gardener specifically to take care of the roses.
Persons associated with the garden include: Pam Caldwell (garden designer, dates unknown), John Morelock (garden designer, dates unknown), Carl Neels (landscape designer, 2006).
