Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, narrative description, copies of articles and plant lists.
General:
Nearly two acres of mature oak trees surround an English style home, garage and carriage house in the Linden Heights residential neighborhood of Des Moines. The outdoor living area to the rear of the home is screened from the street and neighbors for privacy by special gardens, fences and gates. This area includes a pool with pergola and pool house--the focus for entertaining. Nearby is a potting shed with sculpture; roses along a walkway; and cottage, perennial, cutting, and herb gardens. Access to this area is from several decks from the house, incorporating a tiered tree house, or from the driveway with an Italian outdoor oven and floral sculptures marking the entrance.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: R.W. Harper (former owner, 1918-1924); Catherine M. Shuler (former owner, 1924-1964); Grace Doane Pierce (former owner, 1965-1981); Shirley Bassiri (former owner, 1981-1987); William Heard (landscape architect and nurseryman, 1987-1991); Jon Crose (landscape architect, 1987-1998); Vic Scott & Co. (Landscape Company, 1995-2005); Barbara Lyford (landscape designer, 1995); and Karen Strohbeen (sculptor).
