Judith and Gerson Leiber Gardens (Springs, New York).
United States of America -- New York -- Suffolk -- Springs
Scope and Contents:
The garden file includes a cataloging worksheet, an articleine, and 4 35mm slides.
General:
The original land, purchased circa 1970, was less than two acres with a modest house was meant to be a vacation home. The flat rectangular lot had been used as a dump and took two years to clear; the task of creating order evolved into creating a formal parterre garden with brick walkways, extensive treillage and hedges, a potager, and rose gardens. Primarily French in design the formal garden was laid out on a central axis with asymmetrical radiating paths with a Greek herm placed at one end of the axis. Three more acres were acquired; yew hedges were planted since there were no walls, in addition to the clipped boxwood hedges of the parterres. The property features a woodland modeled on English parks, swimming pool, dovecote and other sculptures placed throughout the garden rooms
Persons associated with the garden include Gerson Leiber (owner and garden designer, 1970s - ); Judith Leiber (owner, 1970s - ).
