United States of America -- Washington -- King County -- Seattle
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a site plan, an abbreviated plant list, and additional descriptive information about the garden.
General:
This expansive, three-acre garden lies on the west shore of Lake Washington. The lawn stretches east from the house to the water. It is bordered by deep flower beds anchored by broadleaf evergreen and deciduous shrubs, flowering trees, and towering conifers. On the north side a separate vine-covered garage with living quarters above is finished with the same pale pink stucco as the main house. A butterfly garden and vegetable and fruit orchard lead to the water. A lushly planted path defines the south side of the property, opening out into a flower and shrub border that ends at the lake. A bamboo grove is placed here for privacy. A basalt fountain just outside the front door on the west side echoes the serenity felt throughout the property. The land slopes upward to the street above and is dominated by a large American hornbeam tree, spring bulbs, and camouflaged tennis courts.
Persons associated with the garden include: M. Griffiths (former owner, 1928-1946); William Jensen (former owner, 1946-1966); Furman and Susan B. Moseley (former owners, 1966-2000); Terry Reckard (landscape designer, late 1960s); Terry Welch (landscape designer, late 1960s); Russell Link (landscape designer, late 1980s); Ken Philip (landscape designer, late 1980s); Tim Prendergast (landscape designer, late 1980s); Arthur Lee Jacobson (arborist, 1989); Mary Robson (consultant, 1991); Mike Kane (gardener, 1990-2000); Cass Turnbull (consultant, 1999); and Paula Ames (gardener, 2000-).
