  The Beatrix Farrand Garden Association is located at 4097 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park, NY 12538.

From Beatrix Farrand Gardens: "Beatrix Farrand was a landscape gardener whose work defined the American taste in gardens throughout the first half of the 20th century. For generations, gardens consisted of tender and annual plants set out each year in elaborately shaped beds cut into lawn. Farrand joined the likes of England's Gertrude Jekyll and William Robinson in championing the use of perennial plants in combinations based upon color harmony, bloom sequence and texture. This was the birth of the mixed border that is standard in gardens today." Beatrix Farrand Garden at Bellefield | Dutchess  website and more . . .
