Gardens of the Garden StateBook - 2014
The most densely populated state in the nation and one of the original thirteen, home to the largest public iris garden in the country, and the glacier-swept endpoint of the last Ice Age--for Nancy Berner and Susan Lowry, who look to gardens as an entry to the history and culture of a region, New Jersey presents an array of surprising diversity. Its temperate climate makes it possible to grow a wide range of plants, while its complex topography--ranging from mountains to rolling hills and flat basins, the scrubby Pine Barrens and the rich Coastal Plain--demands innovative approaches to design.
