Notes:
The estate began with an original purchase of twenty-five acres in 1910. The Lloyd's increased the size to seventy-five. Boxwood hedges surrounded the terrace edges. In 1929, there was a green garden; the perennial garden; a blue garden; rose garden; rock garden; and an iris garden. The design of the iris garden was a large bowl made by a succession of circular terraces. A housing development was later built on the property which destroyed the gardens.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Mrs. Mary Helen Wingate Lloyd (former owner, 1987); Wilson Eyre (architect, 1910); Horace W. Sellers (architect); Mr. and Mrs. Horatio Gates Lloyd (planting design); Alfred Geiffert, Jr. (landscape architect for quarry garden)
