This site was apparently a favorite of Nelva M. Weber, for it is featured several times in her 1976 book. Despite this prominence, however, its identification has proved to be elusive, although it was probably in New Jersey. Two outdoor living areas--a roofed brick patio and an open flagstone terrace--were highlights of the design that complemented the colonial-style house. The roofed patio provided a shaded space from which to view an expansive lawn with a gazebo on its far side. The flagstone terrace was built around a large shade tree, but also bordered a large lawn and was backed by other trees and shrubs. This country estate also featured grass walkways with hosta borders, a decorative brick walkway with a millstone center, and a wooden fence with espaliers at the entrance to the property leading in to the house from the driveway and parking area.
Persons associated with the garden include Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1965-1973).
