A Garden for Edith Wharton
In this mature New England inspired garden, classic proportions, pathways and driveway are embellished with fine craftsmanship. The driveway is constructed of handmade brick and cut granite. The house was designed to resemble a stately New England home. The garden was designed to be interesting year round and to provide a level of formality, yet scaled back enough for young children. When in bloom, the glorious cascade created by the three Pee Gee Hydrangeas in the front are reminiscent of an old seaside home along the New England coast. Many unusual trees, shrubs and perennials are found throughout the garden. There is a spring cutting garden along the side with a show of japanese primrose, foxglove and old fashioned fragrant peonies, and there is a weeping katsura tree just the right size for little children to hide under. A copper beech in the front was made into a playground where the children swing and climb on weekends and in the afternoons. The oval limestone terrace in the rear garden is a delight to behold.
