An heirloom landscape for a historic home in old Wheaton, Il.
And what a project it was! Seen here some 3 to 4 years after. The azaleas, native redbuds, and serviceberry (Amelanchier) all add the bright spring colors of this garden. The stone wall was on site , just had to be discovered and dug , then reset! We love doing significant homes , and enjoy researching to discover the proper plant types to fit this home and its architecture. Designed in 1895 by famous architect of the day- Jarvis Hunt. Orig. part of the Chicago Golf Club.
