1965-1983
Notes:
This was the home of the late William Y. and Thelma Tipson Dear. In 1965 landscape architect Lois W. Poinier undertook an extensive design and installation project for the property, which is well-documented with both "before" and "after" images in the series. Poinier's plan featured an extensive herb and vegetable garden, complete with garden house, at the rear of the house, while the front of the property was highlighted by a tri-part brick walk with millstone insert. Molly Adams also photographed the property a number of years after the landscaping installation. Her images depict many aspects of the garden, including brick walkways, trellises, standards, and the overall form of the design.
