Description
Eckbo wrote mini-descriptions of a number of his projects, which he anticipated publishing in later books. Of the Bolles garden, he wrote: "Typical problem of the compact boxy house set up 18 inches and more above a flat lot falling away somewhat to the rear. Connection with the garden solved by building up L-shaped terrace connecting house with shelter at side of car shelter, with broad steps leading down to main garden. Curved screens and rows of pipe columns with trellis establish structural extension of house into garden, and spatial organization of garden, open lawn, wading pool, badminton court and play yard are established by these elements." John Bolles designed this, his own residence
