Bellevue (Rumson, New Jersey)
Established in 1952, this garden was designed by Ethelbert E. Furlong. The property is part of a subdivision of the Auldwood estate (see NJ207) and incorporates old trees, walls, and gates from that site. Furlong's solution to the garden's uneven terrain was a large terrace on two levels to facilitate the viewing and enjoyment of a wide variety of plantings. In addition, the raised terrace itself is softened with abundant plantings.
Persons associated with the garden include: Ethelbert E. Furlong (landscape architect, 1952-1955) and Mr. and Mrs. John Dill (former owners, 1952-2000).
The folder includes a worksheet, an abbreviated garden plan, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
Garden has been featured in Alice Dennis, "A Dignified Design," Newark Evening News, August 30, 1964
