Notes:
A property which has been in the same family for three generations, English Garden was established in the 1930's on one third of an acre. The garden is situated on a long narrow piece of land located behind the house.
Hedges, perennials and naturalized plantings follow the edge of the property, forming the garden's boundaries. An arbor opens into the central lawn where a sculpture serves as the focal point in the heart of the garden. A second arbor, flanked by low picket fencing and flower beds, provides the structure of an outdoor room on the far end of the garden. Roses are prominently featured throughout.
The garden is on the registry of the National Wildlife Federation's Certified Wildlife Habitats, it received a Distinguished Garden Award from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, and a Certificate of Commendation from the Garden Club of New Jersey Landscape Design Critics Council. It has also been featured in the filming of New Jersey Network (NJN) Public Television production, "Gardens Great and Small."
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
