Featured in a New York Times article, this small (19' x 40') garden was designed by Friede R. Stege. Surrounded on three sides by a wooden fence for privacy, the garden featured two terrace levels separated by brick steps. The slight elevation of the upper level added to the spacious feel of the design, while the lower level was in essence an extension of the living room. Beds and borders edged in brick were planted with bulbs and perennials, while a variety of trees and shrubs--Japanese holly, rhododendron, flowering crabs, azaleas, andromeda, and others--completed the design.
The folder includes worksheets, a photocopy of the New York Times article, and other information.
