Place:
Miles Garden (Weston, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Weston
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a copy of an article about the garden with photographs by Molly Adams and a complete plant list, and other information.
General:
This Japanese-style garden was designed by landscape architect Ethelbert E. Furlong for artist Walter Miles and his wife, Jessie, to complement their home, which in turn had been designed by noted architect and woodworker George Nakashima. Because Walter Miles wanted to install and maintain the garden himself, with as little help as possible, he modified Furlong's plan to some degree, while retaining the spirit of the design. Dry stream beds, a pavilion, a bamboo-roofed gatehouse, and irregularly shaped stones were some of the many features of the garden. Although Asian plant material was used extensively, non-Japanese plants such as as Blue Atlas cedar and a flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) were also selected. After leaving this house in 1971, Walter Miles built a second Japanese-style house and garden in Washington, Connecticut, where he lived until 1983.
Persons associated with the property include Ethelbert E. Furlong (landscape architect, ca. 1960); George Nakashima (architect, ca. 1950); and Walter and Jessie Miles (former owners, 1950-1971).

General:
The Arbors is an enclosed garden, very formal in feeling. The land used is part of the side of a slope that has been formed into a series of brick terraces and brick walkways with flower borders. The wooden structures and elaborate brick work show Furlong's talent in creating a unique work of art. Brick walls surround a fountain with a Middle Eastern vase with water spout. On each side of the fountain are pruned boxwood. Most of the flower beds are planted with tulips of different colors. A group of earthenware jugs are placed on the first small wall to harmonize with the rustic feeling of the brick. The brick walls are covered in blue morning glories. A pond is fed by a stream of water and contains white water-lilies.

Scope and Contents:

General:
This .75-acre garden incorporates design work by D. Clark and Ethelbert E. Furlong. Clark's original plan (ca. 1909) was for a front garden between the house and the street. In the late 1920s Furlong developed the back of the property as a secluded woodland retreat. From the terrace directly behind the house a stone path leads down a steep bank to the lower level. Also, a manmade brooklet runs down the bank amid stones to a large pool. A fireplace is on the lower level. Bordering the back property line is a small branch of a local river.
Persons associated with the garden include: D. Clark (landscape architect, 1909); Ethelbert E. Furlong (landscape architect, 1928); Dudley S. Van Antwerp (architect, early 1900s); and Lyster C. Reighly, II (former owner, 1920s-1930s).

Established in the 1920s or 1930s, Nitsua was designed by Ethelbert Furlong. The stone work on the property is believed to be the only remains of Furlong's garden plan.
