Varying Form:
Sampson Beasley Garden.
General:
Ample rainfall and favorable growing conditions are evident in the lush 5 to 7-acre garden that features naturalistic plantings of shrubs, perennials and annuals that blend into the woodlands of native Pacific Madrone and cedar trees. There are many garden rooms with distinctive and whimsical features, including a frog grotto, a walkway made of the bottoms of recycled glass bottles, a blue garden of shiny orbs, and a more conventional walkway lined with peonies, beds with late-blooming red perennials, a rose and yew garden, fish pond, and a shade garden planted in hostas, ferns and hydrangeas. Native rocks are placed strategically in garden beds and used in an alpine rock wall. When the garden was created with landscape designer Michael Schultz plants of varying shapes were selected to create complex visual patterns, and located where the growing conditions would be favorable to the species.
Landscape designer Michael Schultz creates gardens that feature varying textures and colors of plant material, and innovative uses of hardscape elements.
Persons associated with the garden include Dave Green (previous owner, 1970-1980); Michael Schultz (landscape designer); Cynthia Woodyard (landscape designer).

Biographical Note:
Grover Sanders Krantz was born on November 5, 1931, to Swedish immigrants in Salt Lake City, Utah, and spent his childhood in Salt Lake City and Rockford, Illinois. His undergraduate studies began at the University of Utah in 1949 but were postponed in 1951 by 18 months of service in the United States Air Force. After being honorably discharged, Krantz attended the University of California, Berkeley, and earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in Anthropology. In 1970, he earned his doctorate in physical anthropology from the University of Minnesota.

From 1968-1998, Krantz served as a professor of physical anthropology at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. He was considered a leading authority in hominoid evolution and an expert on primate bone structure, specializing in the reconstruction and casting of hominid fossils. Among his numerous publications are the books Climatic Races and Descent Groups, The Process of Human Evolution, and Geographical Development of European Languages. Publicly known for his interest in cryptozoology, Krantz was one of the first established researchers to pursue the question of Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, from a scientific approach. Other research interests included the origin of language and speech, sex identification of skeletons, and early human immigration into America.

After a battle with pancreatic cancer, Krantz passed away on February 14, 2002. At his request, his remains were sent to the University of Tennessee's Anthropology Research Facility, where scientists performed skeletal research of great forensic value. His bones were processed and sent to the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History to be used in an educational capacity. In 2010, Grover Krantz's skeleton and that of his Irish Wolfhound Clyde were mounted in the museum's exhibit, "Written in Bone: Forensic Files of the 17th-Century Chesapeake."
