1972-1978
Notes:
This garden was designed by Lois Poinier in 1972 and was located on Joanna Way near North Pond in Short Hills. Images document the site before, during, and after landscaping, including slides taken five years after installation. A highlight of the project was construction of a terrace to take advantage of water views from the property. The terrace was complemented by a rose border and flowering trees and shrubs, and provided a comfortable setting for outdoor living. The front of the house was also landscaped with azaleas and other shrubs. The Marquardts, former owners who commissioned the design, left the property in the 1980s.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lois Poinier (landscape architect, 1972).
