Foster Garden (Palm Beach, Florida)
This small garden on less than one-quarter acre has been under development since 1981. Previously the site had been planted primarily in tropicals. The current English/French inspired design divides the space into outdoor rooms, all beautifully manicured with boxwood hedges, flower borders, and a variety of small palm trees. Sculpture, planters, and fountains accent the garden spaces, which include a rose garden, a cutting garden, a "jungle path," and a half-moon-shaped garden at the front of the property. Despite its comparatively small dimensions, this garden provides a wealth of personality, charm, and diverse plant material.
Persons associated with the property include Elizabeth Thorndike (former owner, 1966-1970) and Giraud Van Nest Foster (former owner, 1970-1980).
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
