Trade Secrets 2011 ~ The Miller Garden
Many public gardens in New York City owe their design to Lynden Miller, author of the newly published Parks, Plants, and People: Beautifying the Urban Landscape. She is responsible for designing the beloved Conservatory Garden, the rejuvenated Bryant Park and Wagner Park and Madison Square Park. Her private garden clearly demonstrates her artistry and keen eye for color, texture and structure. It features mixed herbaceous borders of perennials and shrubs deftly composed to create brushstrokes of hues backed by a yew hedge. There is a daylily walk, a flowering meadow with paths mowed, a woodland garden, a raised herb garden and a cottage garden for unusual plants.
