Garden of Bernard Marquez & Tim Fish

Garden of Bernard Marquez & Tim Fish

South Salem, NY
Open Days, Water feature

The garden, recently featured in Garden Design magazine, is a hybrid of discipline and fun! It consists of several garden rooms that flow harmoniously into each other on different levels. Existing natural stone outcrops accentuate many of the spaces. The various garden compositions utilize conifer cultivars and broad-leaf evergreens including a variety of boxwoods, some uncommon in the Northeast, as the main structural elements. A koi and orf pond, considerable stonework, and views of the Pound Ridge Reservation and Lake Kitchawan are highlights. Annuals, perennials, artifacts, water features, and containers complete the experience. The gardens make creative use of what was difficult terrain.

Directions: From the west take I-684 to Exit 6/Route 35. Go east to Route 123, south to Mill River Road to Lake Kitchawan Road to Hemlock Road. All are one directional turns.
