The Durbridge Garden (Amenia, New York)
The gardens reflect the interests of the current owner/designer, and include a variety of plants selected for performance and combination use. The garden is meant to illustrate how many traditional elements can work together with contemporary ones. The gardens were created around the buildings, and organized to add interest by the use of "garden rooms." One of the features has been the conversion of an old stone well into a recirculating water feature.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Winchester family (former owners, 1750 - 20th century); and Timothy Mark (sculptor/artist, 2002-present).
The folders include a work sheet and copies of plans.
