Levitan Garden (Stamford, Connecticut)
This is a small woodland one acre garden located on reclaimed farm land. After a visit to the Alhambra, running water features were added between two centrally located boulders. A little fishpond with fountain and water lilies completed the project. The owners included many types of spring flowers to add color to the garden. Ferns later dominate the wildflower paths. The central garden provides color in July and August with lilies, daylilies and hostas.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: P. Nathan & Co. (architect, 1956).
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, and copies of articles.
