Place:
Morris Garden (Lake Forest, Illinois)
United States of America -- Illinois -- Lake County -- Lake Forest
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and other information.
General:
Located on a one-quarter-acre lot, this garden was completely renovated in 2001-2002 with elements from English gardens observed during its owners' residence there. The garage at the rear of the property was modeled to resemble an orangerie and was inspired by the Serpentine Gallery in London's Kensington Gardens. 'William Baffin' roses are being trained on the fence at this end of the site, while through a gate to the left of the garage lies a small potting area and staging area for the planting of late blooming annuals. The southern edge of the garden features a scaled-down version of a wall seen at Sudeley Castle, fronted by flowering shrubs and clinging vines. A combination hornbeam and copper beech hedge covers a wooden fence, completing the southern boundary of the property. A euonymus-covered chain link fence and a stand of pleached linden trees are featured on the north side. The heart of the design is a sunken English-style garden modeled after a design by Rosemary Verey at Sudeley Castle. Its beds are planted with perennials, woody shrubs, and well-chosen annuals and surround a rectangle of green lawn. Designed for color interest from May to October, the sunken garden features a color palate of lavender and pink with touches of pale yellow. In addition to the sunken garden a pergola was built on one side of the patio by the house and provides a support for trumpet vine and the thornless climbing rose 'Zepherine Drouhin'.
Persons associated with the garden include P. Clifford Miller (landscape designer, 2001-2002).
