General:
The Hodgkinson garden, at 3/4 acre, was first designed in 1936. Although most of the gardening and planting was newly revised in 1999, "the look and feel remains sixteenth century England." Of the design by Denise Bates, the centerpiece is the addition of the classic knot garden at the separating upper and lower slate terraces. These areas are linked with a path and posted vintage lanterns along the way. White blooming plants dominate the area to enhance the evening lighting of the oaks and maples.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Miller & Warnecke (builders, 1936); Denise Bates (landscape architect, 1999); and Bill Remick (architect of reconstruction, 1999).
