Chase Garden, Orting, WA
For the past year, the Garden Conservancy has been working with a land use attorney to strengthen the preservation easement placed on the Chase Garden property to protect it in perpetuity. This easement has been expanded to protect significant features of the architect-designed residence and the garden that was designed by Emmott and Ione Chase and landscape architect Rex Zumwalt.
After several years of trying to find a compatible nonprofit steward for this iconic garden, the Garden Conservancy recently listed the property for sale. Through the easement, which is held and monitored by the Garden Conservancy, Chase Garden will continue to be stewarded in a way that is sensitive to its significant architectural and landscape features and will be opened periodically to the public.
For more information, see the Keller Willams Realty’s listing at www.kw.com. We encourage interested parties to contact Lisamari Emery of Keller Williams at telephone 425.417.1383.

Fenimore Road, Larchmont, NY
This unique Larchmont garden was designed in the 1930s by Ellen Biddle Shipman and enhanced in the 1980s by Lester Collins, the renowned landscape architect of Innisfree in Millbrook, NY. The garden consists of over six wooded acres of mature trees surrounded by dry stone walls. The neo-Georgian house, with terraces looking out over the garden, dates from 1927.
A stream flows though the undulating and rocky grounds over waterfalls designed by Shipman and Collins. Collins also created riprap to bring the stream into focus in the landscape. Large banks of native rhododendron provide privacy and separate spaces, with an elevated secret garden reached by a path of stone steps hidden by shrubbery.
Following the lay of the land with a perfect composition of rock, water, woods, and sky, this special American stroll garden encourages exploration. For further information, please contact email@example.com.

Five herbaceous borders begin near a quarter-acre stream-fed pond, are backed by ancient stone walls and a quarter-acre woodland garden, and partially surround a bluestone terrace and garden cottage.
