Notes:
Located on a property that dates back to 1932, the Maclay Garden was established beginning in 1974 when the current owners purchased the property and began the work of transforming a garden that had been left to grow wild. Encouraged to design a garden that would be easy to maintain and offer year-round beauty, azaleas were chosen to feature prominently throughout the property, providing bright washes of color in spring and lush greenery throughout the year. Deep beds of evergreens and azaleas protect the property from its busy surroundings, both from the front of the house as well as framing the perimeter of the back garden. A walk along the side of the residence leads through a gated wall and shaded garden path to the main garden. The main garden features a large lawn framed by azaleas, a swimming pool, and two terraces offering garden seating and an outdoor dining area.
Entities associated with the garden include: King Burney Hughes (former owner, 1932-1934); the Praetorian family (former owners, 1935-1936); Mollie F. Hall (former owner, 1936); Mrs. Frances Hall McCracken (former owner, 1936-1974); William Pardoe & Associates (landscape design, date unknown); Mike Kirkpatrick (role and date unkown); and Lambert Landscape Company (landscape design, 1985).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, and landscape architecture plans.
