The Mountsier Garden

Nutley, NJ
Garden structure/sculpture

A garden for all seasons that has been created and fine tuned for more than two decades and now encompasses two acres. Owners Silas Mountsier and Graeme Hardie have collaborated with noted landscape designer and friend Richard Hartlage, and the result is a feast for the eyes and for the senses. Principally a stroll garden, there are numerous focal points, small rooms, seating areas, private nooks, and impressive vistas. Drifts of variegated hakonechloa soften the strong architectural underpinnings of the garden, and many of the brilliant and original plant combinations will thrill the devoted horticulturist. A collection of small sculptures, artworks, and commissioned pieces is interspersed throughout as accent points and disarming bits of humor. The owners also welcome visitors on Open Days in the early fall. From thousands of early spring flowering bulbs to a subtle but glorious display of green on green in the early fall, there is something new to see and enjoy on every visit. Garden is partially accessible.
