This garden, surrounding a 1928 beach-front house, combines formal and naturalistic landscaping. An exuberant meadow featured as an article in Garden Design magazine Autumn 2015 with many varieties of perennials, self-seeding annuals, and native miscanthus is adjacent to a cutting garden, a cottage garden and rose bed enclosed by a yew exedra. Nearby, a visitor may stroll through a woodland walk with cryptomeria, cypress, and rhododendron underplanted with a collection of Asian woodland plants including rare arisaema. The trail ends near the dunes with ornamental grasses. The house overlooks a parterre and croquet lawn where lead urns planted informally with various annuals serve as focal points. The kitchen terrace leads to a large vegetable and cutting garden, called “The Farm.”
