The Ford House

Edsel & Eleanor Ford House tells the story of the home life of a prominent American family.

Flower Lane

Flower Lane was designed by Jensen to display cultivated perennial flowers and shrubs in a natural setting bordered by overhanging, flowering trees. Using irregular shape of the borders, the lane is oriented in an east-west direction to which light and shadows again add interesting effects on the flowers that have been planted in masses. In this area of the grounds Mr. and Mrs. Ford chose the various varieties of flowers and shrubs. White, yellow and blue colors dominate the plantings, which include delphiniums, lupines, veronica, shasta daisies and daylilies. These soft colors are often found in nature.
