Courtney-Pratt Garden (Middletown, New Jersey)
This owner-designed site of nearly three acres featured a woodland garden in the back of the house which included woodland plants and thousands of spring bulbs. Paths were highlighted by rhododendrons, lilies, and assorted wildflowers. The front of the house, with terraced gardens and grass, faced the Navasink River. After 40+ years of continuous ownership the property was sold in 2005.
The garden was toured in May of 1984 for New Jersey Garden Clubs and again for the Garden Conservancy sometime between 1984 and 2005.
Persons associated with the garden include: Gillian Courtney-Pratt (former owner, 1968-2005) and Jeofry Stuart Courtney-Pratt (former owner, 1968-2005).
