The city of Yonkers, New York, is unearthing a garden from New York’s golden age—the grand Persian gardens of Samuel Untermyer, overlooking the Hudson River. The story of how an architect and a horticulturist are working on clearing 70 years of brush and hoping to make the Untermyer Gardens one of the greatest public gardens in America.
GARDEN DESIGN is once again an educational partner with Landslide, the Cultural Landscape Foundation's annual thematic compendium of at-risk landscapes. Learn about this annual event, which highlights landscapes that are being threatened, including the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden (above), which was spotlighted in 2009, and luckily, saved in 2011. Remember to submit your nominations for this year's Landslide. Nominations are due May 31, 2012.
A reminder about some Cultural Landscape Foundation garden tours that are coming up, as well as the deadline for Landslide: Landscape and Patronage's call for nominations—Landslide is a program that highlights endangered landscapes around the country.
