R Street Walk
In describing the large Katsura and Japanese maple that predated her design work, Farrand wrote
These trees…make a foliage border to the lawn difficult to equal for character and delicacy. She added a mixture of evergreen trees and shrubbery including boxwood, American holly, Mahonia, and Japanese holly. Between the evergreens, she added deciduous forsythia, Viburnum, and Philadelphus. Groundcover next to the brick path included Helleborus, ferns, and spring bulbs.
