Broughton Garden (Brooklyn, New York)
Located in Brooklyn Heights, this home garden was designed by Alice Recknagel Ireys. Working within a narrow, confined space, she prepared a design that provided variety in texture and plant material. A more formal bricked area near the house featured urns and a cast-iron bench. Beyond this was a more naturalistic part of the garden, with white birch trees marking the division between the two spaces. Wooden fencing and latticework provided support for climbing plants and the background for a large birdhouse.
The folder includes worksheets and other information.
