"The 40 acre property was purchased in February 29, 1883 by Erza Townsend Cresson. He named the property Hedgleigh after the after the two long osage orange hedgerows." -memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting horticulturist / Garden Design.
"Today, the two acre garden is the unique product of family stewardship for over 100 years. The garden's design and older specimens for mostly date from between 1920 and 1950, while the plant collection has been greatly expanded within this framework since 1970. The house sits in a sweeping lawn surrounded by ancient oaks and black gum under planted with mature azaleas and dogwoods planted in 1948, along with the spring house, dating from the early 1800's. The central flower garden of roses and perennials contains over 100 feet of flower borders backed by a unique crescent shaped white picket fence,built in 1954." - Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
A combination of stone retaining walls, grade changes and shrub plantings divide the property into intimate spaces and microclimates which include woodland gardens, a small pond, a creek with a waterfall, a vegetable garden and a lowland perennial meadow. The diverse plant collection provides bloom throughout the year. May is especially interesting for its variety of plants, particularly in the woodlands area." -Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
"The flower garden of perennials and roses is most spectacular in early June. Other areas reach their peak at different times, with a remarkable resurgence of bloom in September. A brick patio behind the house is furnished with exotic potted plants." -Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
"Charles Cresson is a garden designer, award winning author, nationally known lecturer and avid gardener. Before returning to rejuvenate the garden at Hedgleigh Spring, he attend the University of Vermont, University of Bath in England and worked for the Royal Horticultural Society. After working for W. Atlee Burpee Co., he authored 3 books: Charles Cresson on the American Flower Garden, Ornamental Trees, and Rock Gardening. As the garden consultant, he has helped many avid gardeners develop their own gardens. -Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
Persons associated with the property include: George W. Casey (architect in 1910); Furness, Evans & Company (Architectural firm that George W. Casey worked for in 1910); Charles O. Cresson (horticulturist and author); Erza Townsend Cresson (former owner from 1883 to ?); William James Cresson, Sr. (former owner form 1909 to 1959).
