Handsome Homes And Artistic Plantings O NE of the first times a, .planting- plan made by a professional landscape architect was used fn Decatur was in arranging the grounds of Georsa E. Moeller and Dr. S. E. McClelland In the SOO-900 block Weat "William. The planUng 1 in accordance with that plan was done some four years ago and is now developed s u f f i c i e n t l y to show Us beauty and to let one see how much good and plentiful planting- adds to the appearance of a handsome and pleading residence. In the case of these two homes the grounds are large and the houses nre handsome in themselves, but any one can see that the s h r u b b e r y and trees, artistically arranged as they are, add a great deal to the appearance of th'e two places. It makes the whole neighborhood interesting. The plan for planting the grounds' of these two residences was made by O. C. Simonds of Chicago. It may be mentioned that he has also made the plans for other places in Decatur, including the residence of Adolph Mueller and the grounds of the J. M. U. The shrubbery used in the planting Is all familiar to one that Is at all acquainted with the hardy shrubs used in this part of the country. A rather plentiful use was made of the roses grown for the foliage as well as their blossoms. It should be noticed that these ars not the monthly or hardy tea roses usually grown on lawns for blossoms, but a-re a much hardier variety of roses, that arc not subject to insect attack, or disease.
