Bumsted, Roy R., Jr., Garden No. 1 (Short Hills, New Jersey)
Date:
1960
1960-1961
Notes:
This garden on Wells Lane in Short Hills was one of two designed by Lois Poinier for Anne Halbach Bumsted and Roy R. Bumsted, Jr. (the second was NJ324). Mrs. Bumsted was the daughter of Ernest K. Halbach, who in 1948 had married Poinier's mother, Helen Page Wodell. A tree-shaded, natural surface outdoor seating area was constructed at the back of the house and a variety of plantings--azaleas, evergreens, rhododendrons, and perennials--were installed. The house appears to have been sold shortly after the landscaping work was completed.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lois Poinier (landscape architect, 1960-1961) and Anne Halbach Bumsted and Roy R. Bumsted, Jr. (former owners, ca. 1960-1961.
