Currey Garden (Southampton, New York)
Alice Recknagel Ireys was the landscape architect for this property. Taking advantage of the site's water views, Ireys designed an expansive stone terrace that was used for dining and other outdoor living functions. A side of the home away from the water featured an allée of decorative trees that were underplanted with annuals in season. Planting immediately around the house appears to have been limited in order not to obstruct the water views, although a 2009 description mentions rose and iris beds, bsoxwood, a cutting garden, and daylilies.
Persons associated with the garden include: Alice Recknagel Ireys (landscape architect, ca. 1960-1972).
