Notes:
Molly Adams labelled the sleeve in which the negatives for this garden were found "Weber Zenker July '73," so it is reasonably certain that the negatives are of this site and time. However, images of another garden, NJ108 (Buttonbrook in Far Hills, NJ) were also found in this same sleeve, while the three contact prints, which show a developed garden, may or may not be the same site depicted in the negatives. In the absence of further information all six images have been identified as the Zenker Garden. One of the contact prints is an image included in Nelva M. Weber's 1976 book, How to Plan Your Own Home Landscape, establishing an upper cutoff date for the garden images of 1976. The negatives depict the construction site of a new home, while the three contact prints show a raised bed garden, a driveway and parking area, and a vine covered areaway adjacent to tool storage.
Persons associated with the garden include: Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, 1973) and Dr. David Ogden and Jeanne Tucker Zenker (former owners, ca. 1973-2000).
