Sad to see "Long John" go but at least he has gone to a good home. We are just getting ready for a proper two week seaside holiday with the girls. I hope they get used to the heat - we are about to get your heatwave. Sometimes there are advantages to working in an underground air-conditioned building. Frantically trying to clear my desk - thanks for all your help. Best regards. Michael."

Place:
Gretchen W. and James L. Johnson Jupiter Island Estate (Hobe Sound, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Martin -- Hobe Sound
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, personal narratives, and photocopies of landscape architect's plans.
General:
The Jupiter Island Estate comprises 14.68 acres, incorporating four property lots and four houses integrated by a designed landscape made to look as though it occurred naturally. This property was put together in 2002 and the gardens have evolved, with trees sometimes brought down by storms and once by an explosion on the property. Although each building has distinct features such as trellised vines for shade on the studio building and a small vegetable and herb garden outside the guest cottage, the gardens are unified by fountains or other water features and the use of indigenous plants and coquina rockwork, with shades of red for most of the flowering plants. The predominate shape for planned garden areas suggests islands, with opened vistas the only obvious straight lines. The decomposing shapes of dead trees are prized and left in place to provide habitat for wildlife. Other casts off plant materials such as husks from palm trees are laid down on paths. The busy Intracoastal Waterway runs along one side of the property so a retaining wall was built for privacy and as protection against storms. Since the coastline of this property is rocky a private beach or sand pit was installed and there is an swimming pool with a modern beach house.
The plant selection for the tropical location includes bromeliads and bougainvillea in shades of red, blue agave, pink caladiums, jasmine, ficus and a stand of live oaks near the main residence. The plantings outside the yellow house include yellow roses, canna lilies and yellow orchids in a banyan tree with touches of periwinkle blue in the plantings and blue shutters on the building. Other plants that recur throughout the property include native cactus, wild coffee plant, peanut grass, sea grape and native berries, iron wood trees and stumps and many palm varieties. There are mature banyan trees, pigeon plum, ficus and a gnarly pigeon palm. Poinsettias that were holiday gifts are planted in the ground each year. There is a border of citrus trees for fruit, and dramatic large leaf philodendron, palms and stands of bamboo for privacy around another residence building. Confederate and night blooming jasmine, gardenia and ginger add fragrance outside windows and doors.
Persons associated with the garden include Raymond Jungles, FASLA (landscape architect, beginning in 2002); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects).
