Dan Hinkley | Windcliff: People, Places, Plants | Sunday, June 13, 2021
Windcliff, a 6.5 acre garden on a high bluff overlooking Puget Sound, is the second garden of horticulturist Dan Hinkley and his partner, architect Robert L. Jones, the first being the still-legendary Heronswood. With a due south facing aspect, and thirsty soils, Hinkley began to visualize the garden in 2000 while Jones set about designing their house. Both horticulture and architecture were meant to be inseparable.
