LET'S TAKE A WALK AND APPRECIATE HORTICULTURE
Our Past Gardens
Driving through the heavily canopied streets of Indianapolis’ beautiful Williams Creek neighborhood, one cannot help but admire the Colonial-style home with the colorful front door. The elegant gardens, private patio, and pool give the feeling of begin out in the coutnry, not minutes from the city center.
Artist: Cathy Chalfant
The gardens of the approximately 20-acre property have been influenced by many landscape designers, but since 2006 it has solely been a collaborative effort with horticulturist, Chris Turner. The genuine love of gardening and preservation permeates the vast property.
Artists: Thom Fairchild and Susie Rachles
Unique features of the 3.75-acre garden include various “rooms” and planting pockets. The hosta garden in front of the stately home is complemented by hydrangea “Annabelle” and hibiscus “Alba,” as well as ferns and petasites. There is a mix of varietal and Itoh peonies flush with witch hazel, hydrangea, althea, spreading yews and Cronus shrubs.
Artists: Trina Smulevitch
A collection of natives, phlox, loosestrife, and hydrangeas follow along the drive. The artistic homeowner delights in newfound “volunteers” which are seedlings that have naturally taken root. This is an ever-changing property that has been home to the family for 30 years.
Artist: Laura Winslow
This excellent example of Prairie-Style architecture, the home features black walnut woodwork cut from trees felled a the building site. The spectacular flowers attract many visitors. The treasured Forest Hills neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
