Stevens Garden (New York, New York)
Little is known about this elegant, small garden featured in a New York Times article. Separated from its townhouse neighbors by a stockade fence, it featured a flagstone patio and seating area. A central, sculpture-topped fountain and pool was backed by a rustic stone wall. A variety of small trees, shrubs, perennials, and plants in urns and other containers gave the scene an atmosphere of lushness.
The folder includes worksheets, a photocopy of the New York Times article, and other information.
