Wales (Englewood, New Jersey)
In a piece of correspondence to Mrs. Wales, dated 1932, Elisha Ely Garrison of Greenwich, Connecticut suggested planning six "coves." Garrison writes, "I thnk that Rudbeckia at the points where the cove outlines come to the front of the border with viola, Jersey Gem, just in front of the Rdbeckia would make excellent accents and would help with structural effects as well." Each cove was to have a different color.
Person(s) associated with the property include: Mrs. (Katherina Gillett) Charles Marshall Wales (former owner, ca. 1932- ?) and Elisha Ely Garrison (landscape designer)
The folder includes a work sheet; writings on landscape design by "Colonel Elisha E. Garrison;" and correspondence and plant invoice (1932).
