In Collaboration with Edwina von Gal Landscape Design, This six acres property contains carefully organized garden spaces set into a park-like setting. Many large trees (with trunks up to 36” in diameter) were relocated on site to accommodate a new residence, guest house, and swimming pool. The site is organized along two main axial lines that extend from the house and guest house. The axes cross at a circular reflecting pool surrounded by Kousa dogwoods and a tea house. Other spaces on the property include the Hydrangea Walk, Heirloom Apple Orchard, Woodland Garden, Cutting Garden, Birch Grove, Privet Allée, and the David Dawn Rose Arbor. Together the various garden rooms provide a multitude of experiences.

Queen Anne Square
"The Meeting Room", the new park installation in Queen Ann Square was commissioned by the Newport Restoration Foundation and designed by artists Maya Lin and Edwina Von Gal and Nick Benson of the John Stevens Shop. The title of which conveys the intent: to create spaces that invite a spirit of gathering and community and to provide a place of quiet imagination in the midst of the city. The park design centers on three stacked stone foundations, which represent actual locations and footprints of buildings which existed on the site during three different centuries: 1777, 1876 and 1907.
