Halbach Garden No. 2 (Short Hills, New Jersey)
Date:
1950
1950-1972
Notes:
This was the garden of Helen Page Wodell and Ernest K. Halbach, whom she married in 1948, at the home to which they moved shortly thereafter. Wodell was the mother of landscape designer Lois Poinier and grandmother of landscape designer Page Sanders. Wodell's design, which accompanied a renovation of the house, featured a rear terrace outlined by stone walls, atop and alongside of which extensive borders were planted. Colorful borders extended beside the house and to the back of the property, accented by specimen trees and flowering trees and shrubs. The garage and driveway area was reconfigured and landscaped to accommodate an addition to the house and to tie this area to the rear terrace and back of the property. The front of the house received a new walk, stone walls, and plantings, bringing unity to the design for the entire site.
Persons associated with the garden include: Ernest K. Halbach (former owner); and Helen Page Wodell [Halbach] (former owner and landscape designer).
