Notes:
Established in 1980, this ca. 2.5 acre garden lies on a peninsula jutting into Liberty Bay, an arm of Puget Sound. The site was originally homesteaded in 1889. The garden is informal and incorporates as many different species of trees and shrubs as possible, including many dwarf trees. Several large grassy areas include a meadow that is cut two times a year. Above the beach is a long, winding perennial garden that is gradually evolving into a shade garden. Because many of the trees and shrubs are grown from seeds or cutting from friends of the owner or exchanges, the feeling of the garden is changing all the time; it may even eventually evolve into a mixed forest. Challenges with which the owners have had to contend in developing the garden include brush, junk left from previous uses, soil consisting of heavy blue clay and fine glacial silt, and a constant struggle to maintain the view of the sound and the Olympic Mountains. Raised planting areas, a variety of plants resulting in year-round bloom, and the use of evergreen ground covers and dwarf shrubs in many different hues and textures have led to a result that respects and builds on the natural setting, yet incorporates such highlights as water features and a bonsai collection
Persons associated with the garden include: Uno Noll Brauer and Sara Elizabeth Peterson Brauer and family (former owners, 1889-1975); John Fluke (former owner, 1975-1979); Daniel Robinson (landscape contractor, 1982-1983); Dick Yamasaki (landscape designer, 1980-1981); and Denise Kelly (gardener, 1983 to date)
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, and copies of articles about the garden and the Brauers
