Notes:
This low maintenance, evergreen garden was established in 1985 on a subdivided estate originally landscaped by the Olmsted firm in 1928. A walled garden surrounds a cobblestone courtyard that once served the eight-car garage/gatehouse that has now been converted into a residence. The garden features a huge elm, flowering trees, boxwood, yew and hemlock hedges, espaliers, wild flowers, topiary, ground covers, and masses of variegated hostas. Pots of annuals give color to the year-round garden.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Frank Stranahan and heirs (former owners, 1928-1985); Charles S. Schneider (architect, 1928); Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects (landscape architects, 1928); Seyfang, Blanchard, Duket, Porter (architects, 1985); the MacPherson Partnership (architects, 1985); Neville Landscape & Tree Service (nurserymen, 1985 to date); and Vintage Gardens (nurserymen, 1985 to date).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan with plant names, and a narrative description of the garden and its history.
