Notes:
Located on a rocky hilltop, this quarter acre garden was established in 1993 and planted in topsoil brought in to fill rock terraces that were built around exposed ledges. The 1990s house recalls Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie style with low horizontal lines, a mostly glass exterior and a wood deck overlooking the garden and New Hampshire mountains. Due to the harsh winters the plant choice includes low-growing ground cover plants such as ferns and mosses. Creeping juniper and other dwarf conifers provide four season interest. Featured flowers are daylilies, daisies and phlox. Rocks deposited by glaciers are plentiful in this garden and used for the patio, paths and steps.
The mainly rock gardens surrounding the house are planted with native perennials, shrubs, and trees.
Gordon Hayward (landscape designer, 2001); Sandy Price (garden designer, 2001-present).
