The property is 325 acres consisting of pasture, hayfields, a conservation area, and homestead with the Snake River flowing through it. The home was built in 1986 with the surrounding gardens and greenhouse in the original plan. The location dictated the "wagon wheel" design of the kitchen garden located inside a semi-circle between the driveway and greenhouse. The kitchen garden features a wooden fence, radiating stone paths from a central circular bed, raised vegetable beds, a small production greenhouse, and flower beds. Despite the short season and harsh Wyoming winters at an elevation of 6300 ft., the garden has proven to be a successful. The garden is designed to be viewed from the deck off the kitchen. Stone steps lead down to the greenhouse and garden. The greenhouse is used in the winter to house heirloom geraniums, ivy, a jade plant, a few orchids from Florida, and to start seedlings for the vegetable garden in the spring. The vegetables are planted in raised beds to discourage moles and voles and cloches are added as needed for frost and to deter chipmunks.
The contents of the garden has concentrated on flowers and vegetables that do well in Wyoming. The root crops and lettuces are very successful in this climate. Annuals are grown from seed collected in the fall as well as some new varieties each year. However, the owners also grow peonies and lilacs from relatives in Vermont as well as daffodils, Sweet Williams, and some special geraniums. The Hens and Chicks which grow between the stepping stones came from the owners' woodland property in New York. Also many of the spring bulbs were gifts from friends and relations which have continuously been divided and shared with others.
Persons associated with the garden include: Riverview Ranch and Livestock Co. (former owner, 1917); Don Albrecht (former owner); Robert and Marna MacLean (garden designers, 1986- ); Vince Lee (architect, 1986); Les Weber (log home builder).
