Milwaukee -- Pickerel Run

Provenance:
Green Tree Garden Club  Search this
Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Pickerel Run (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Milwaukee County -- Milwaukee
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, site plans, and narrative description.
General:
The decorative arts and architecture from 17th century New England served as inspiration for this garden. The site for the garden was prepared in fall of 1981 and built in spring 1982. The layout of the raised geometric beds, gravel paths, and picket fence was modeled after early Colonial designs. The central beds are devoted to herbs. The outer beds hold perennial flowers, similar to those of Colonial New England. By contrast, the garden beds around the house are filled with native plants. A knot garden of green velvet boxwood, inspired by an inlay design on an early 18th century Pennsylvania chest, was added to the kitchen terrace. The beds adjacent to the knot garden, composted only of green and white white, service as a "restful haven under the shade of the the surrounding giant oak trees."
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Aimee Scott Sheets (horticulturist, 2001-?).
Related Materials:
Pickerel Run related holdings consist of 1 folder (22 35 mm. slides)
