We have a lawn, which we seed every year so it at least has a predominance of grass over other green plants, but 60 THE LAYERED GARDEN we do not fertilize or water it. It is not only the lawn that gets little pampering here. Unless the weather is blazing hot and dry for days, we hardly water anything at all, and we rarely use chemical fertilizers. In creating new beds at the garden’s inception, I tilled in generous amounts of compost and cow manure to add organic matter to the soil. Each year we top-dress the beds with a thin layer of triple-shredded hardwood mulch or leaf mold—so thin that it must be done every year.
Our garden at Brandywine Cottage has been designed so that different areas peak at diΩerent times: For example, when the hillside is at its height of bloom in early spring, the borders below are barely breaking dormancy, and when the borders peak later in spring, the hillside has entered a quieter phase. Most areas have more than one peak. The hillside puts on a second show when hydrangeas bloom, and a third show with colorful fall foliage; the ruin wall goes through several waves of bloom; and the borders oΩer a series of waves that carry on until frost.
A garden might be compared to a favorite book: the more time we spend in it, the more we read between the lines, the more we can glean from it and the more delight we can experience from it. The flaw in this analogy is that authors do not rewrite their books between our readings, while gardens are always being rewritten, either by our own hands or the unseen hands of their original creator— which means we can never stop paying attention. When I began working on the Brandywine Cottage property in February 1990, I had to spend months cleaning it up before I could even consider making a garden.
