Matinecock Farms (Glen Cove, New York)
This half acre garden was established in 1986. The owners wanted to incorporate shrubs and plants that they propagated from a previous residence. Climbing roses were located near the front entrance and were selected for fragrance and continuous bloom. A small parterre garden is located beside the entrance path and beneath the kitchen window. A tiered boxwood topiary is located in the center. The owners chose many of the plants for year round interest.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Alice R. Ireys (landscape architect, 1986); and Innocenti and Webel (architect).
The folders include a work sheet and site plan.
