Nouri Garden (Oyster Bay, New York)
The Nouri Garden is an estate of nearly 25 acres, part of a larger property on which trees were planted by the Olmsted Brothers firm prior to the building of this house in 1949. Many mature trees and shrubs comprise the current garden, including lengthy clipped yew hedges around the swimming pool, clipped holly at the entrance gate, clipped boxwood at the foundation of the house and at the swimming pool, Japanese maples near the pool, many rhododendron, pines and other evergreens and copper beech. Daffodils planted along the driveway and other bulbs and annuals add color to the grounds according to the seasons.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Adrien Iselin (former owners, beginning in 1949); Mr. and Mrs. Marton-Smith (former owners, until 1967); Jack Weiler (tree specialist and landscaper, 1960s to present); Donald Walsh (landscape designer 1990s); Olmsted Brothers (landscape designers, dates unknown).
