Hoyt, C. O., Garden (Short Hills, New Jersey)
This garden was designed by Lois Poinier and was located on Highland Avenue in Short Hills. Images document the site before, during, and after landscaping. Stairs and a walk were constructed and landscaping installed in the front of the property. In the back, retaining walls, curving stairs, and plantings were designed to enhance a steep hillside, while a stone patio provided outdoor living space near the house. The hillside was planted with spring bulbs. Along one side of the property a former children's play area was transformed into comparatively formal borders and a central bed surrounding a fountain.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lois Poinier (landscape architect, 1960-1980s) and Mr. and Mrs. C. O. Hoyt (former owners, ca. 1958-1962).
