Mrs. Datus C. Smith House
Pasadena, California

The Greene & Greene firm dissolved in 1922, but Henry Greene developed this house-addition and garden design for Mrs. Smith in 1920 independently after his brother had moved north to Carmel. Construction was carried out in 1924. The garden included a formal parterre near the house and an informal orchard of fruit trees ranged around an existing native oak and California pepper trees.
