Pflieger's Garden (Summit, New Jersey)
Located on a .75 acre lot, Pflieger's Garden was established in 1997 using colonial design principles to complement the colonial-style construction of the property's main house, built in 1996. A close collaboration between the owners and designer Margaret Bayse inspired the garden's creation and informed the thoughtfully drafted design plans that serve as its backbone and highlight the owners' extensive plant collection acquired over thirteen years.
The property features a courtyard garden, a rose garden, a woodland garden including woodland walkways, a viburnum collection garden, an arbor, a children's playhouse garden, an herb circle and kitchen garden, composting area and plantings framing the property fences and front and side of the house. Curving bluestone walkways edged in row-lock brick frame the expansive lawn. Plantings include roses, perennials, flowering shrubs including rhododendron and azalea, and assorted ornamental trees and shade trees.
Persons associated with the garden include Margaret Bayse (landscape designer, 1996-2009).
