Spring Brook House was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wellington B. Hay. Noted especially for its extensive plantings of iris, the design of its gardens involved the work of both Fletcher Steele and Nelva M. Weber. In 1948 Steele designed expansive garden borders adjacent to the property's planting of strawberries and vegetables. Nelva M. Weber's later contribution involved a more intimate brick-walled garden area and featured a variety of perennials and shrubs. The property's rural setting provided views to the surrounding hills, while clipped linden trees highlighted the transition from the home to garden areas.
Persons associated with the garden include Fletcher Steele (landscape architect, 1948); Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1957); and Mr. and Mrs. Wellington B. Hay (former owners, ca. 1945-1976).
