Deborah Needleman's Garden, Slide Show
Our exclusive photographs of Deborah Needleman's garden, in Garrison, New York.
Read our Q&A with Deborah Needleman, founding editor-in-chief of Domino and current editor of WSJ., The Wall Street Journal's monthly magazine, about her garden that she shares with her husband, Jacob Weisberg, and her family.

Sweet autumn clematis flanks the entrance to Deborah Needleman and Jacob Weisberg’s home.
A hammock hangs in a screened porch.
Needleman extended pavers around the pool to create a lounge area.
Terra cotta pots filled with white blooming plants and flowering bulbs, such as Gladiolus callianthus ‘Murielae’ (far right), are staged on a vintage metal table and the gravel drive in front of the black-stained barn, welcoming visitors to the garden.
A detail of Needleman’s front border, inspired by the work of Dutch garden designer and nurseryman Piet Oudolf, shows late-season favorites like Echinacea purpurea and Joe Pye Weed.
Indoor and outdoor fabrics on the dining bench show off the decorating trick of mixing bold and smaller patterns and stripes with florals.
A great way to make smaller potted plants pop is to group them together on a table; here a collection of begonias, ferns, and myrtle topiary thrive on the screened porch.
A Moroccan table brought outside sets the scene while a Madeline Weinrib striped fuchsia cabana cotton carpet acts as the picnic blanket and John Derian lanterns add a flattering glow.
One of Needleman’s favorite tricks to instantly liven up a room is to bring potted plants inside when they are at their peak; here the white blooms of oleander create a dramatic contrast to the dark walls of Needleman’s sitting room.
An intimate area under a kousa dogwood provides a cozy place to view the garden and pool beyond.
The outdoor dining area, just outside the kitchen, was inspired by trips to Greece. White linens from Society Limonata and hurricane lanterns from Henry Dean dress the table.
