The Garden Guide

Innisfree Garden, New York

Innisfree garden was made by Walter and Marion Beck and conceived as a Chinese garden. It was taken over, in 1960, by the Chair of the Landscape Architecture programme at Harvard, Lester Collins, and opened to the public. Walter Beck described his work as a 'cup garden', with the 'cup' drawing attention to something rare or beautiful. A 40 acre glacial lake occupies the center of the cup - and the Innisfree garden estate.
