General:
The three acre property, the last to sell in a development in 1978, was densely wooded and sloping with heavy clay soil and an overgrown stream. The owners put up a brick colonial revival house and planted juniper on the slope circumscribed by the driveway but it did not thrive in the shade. Next they planted hydrangeas, upright Japanese barberry, spirea, hosta, Japanese forest grass and other perennials, creating a woodland garden. That sparked an interest in gardening that gradually led to almost 2-1/2 acres being planted and tended. Rocks and boulders that were dug up in every expansion were used as edging or focal points except for the bed at the front of the house that has a low brick wall. The first garden beds were around a perimeter that could be seen from the house with excavated soil dumped further away in the forest. The owner emphasized foliage texture and color combinations over flowers, influenced by her study of Englishwoman Beth Chatto. Closer to the house there are free-form beds connected by meandering grass paths rather than defined garden rooms. One island bed is a rock garden; a densely planted courtyard garden off the brick patio has a pergola and koi pond. The owner's welded art pieces dot the garden beds and line the driveway.

Year by year the gardens were expanded into the woodland of oak, poplar, shagbark hickory, beech, bramble and skunk cabbage. In the forest they found a creek bed and a berm, loamy soil and clay. Drainage channels were dug, the berm was enlarged, and a 20 by 10 foot, 18-inch deep pond was dug. Outbuildings include a garden shed/welding workshop and an old potting shed further out that functions as a folly. Varying height of the plants, including repeated use of the vertical Japanese barberry and the vertical Japanese holly "Sky Pencil", deep purple foliage as an accent, and many shapes and textures of chartreuse foliage are unifying features in all the garden areas.

Persons associated with the garden include: Dr. Charles M. Thomas and family (former owners, circa 1912-1930s); William H. Taylor and the Taylor Land Company (former owners, -1973); General Development Corporation (former owner, 1973-1978).
