Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and write-ups of the property's history.
General:
The Wallbridge Garden, approximately one acre, is located at the entrance to Taylor Park in Millburn, New Jersey. The garden is an ongoing community project of the Short Hills Garden Club. The garden features hybrid tea and grandiflora roses planted in concentric rings in wedge-shaped beds hedged with boxwood. At the center is a gazebo, with paths radiating out between and around the beds. Naturalized plantings of spring bulbs, ferns and sweet woodruff, specimen trees, yew hedges and lawns comprise the rest of Wallbridge Garden.
The garden is named for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Wallbridge, whose bequest provided the initial funds for the garden club's renovation. Planning for the garden began circa 1980 during a drought that limited water use, and a trickle hose system was installed in the rose beds that uses non-potable water stored in a tank. The rose beds are mulched with shredded leaves collected in the park.
An earlier garden at that location centered on a bandstand that had become derelict and was removed. Dead trees, deteriorating plants and wire waste baskets were removed, and sturdy wooden benches and trash receptacles were installed. Paths that had been blacktopped were revived with a covering of pea gravel set with hot oil. The original Wallbridge bequest has been supplemented through fund-raising activities of the garden club.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. John Taylor (former owners prior to 1924); Township of Millburn, New Jersey (owner, May 1924 to present); Robert B. Heintz (architect of the gazebo, February 1981); Short Hills Garden Club (garden designers, planters and maintainers, 1981 to present).
