|A PATHWAY OF WIDE COLOR RANGE IN THE GARDEN OF HENRY C. MARTIN, ESQ. AT GLEN COVE, LONG ISLAND.|
HARRIE T. LINDEBERG, ARCHITECT; CHARLES GALANTI, GARDENER AND DESIGNER OF THE FLOWER SCHEME.
In the garden of Henry C. Martin at Glen Cove, Long Island, rose-violet cosmos and lavender-blue sage are companioned with plum balsam and cherry-red and maroon petunias. In these richer colors the designer of flower gardens has a range of selection that is indeed inspiring. The Martin garden, of which Harrie T. Lindeberg was the architect and Charles Galanti the gardener, is perhaps one of the most colorful of modern gardens. Not only are dark blue asters planted with such flowers as blue sage and lavender thistles, but there are combinations of yellow and red flowers that would have been considered insufferable in our one-time gardens. Greenish cream and buff zinnias, saffron and salmon dahlias, giant sunflowers are in the same scene with orange marigold, deep golden coreopsis, brilliant yellow calendulas, brownish yellow gaillardias. Injected in this wide gamut of yellows are reds as startling as the scarlet of the Mexican sage. The secret, however, that permits such striking combinations is that of the impressionistic painter; intermingled with the brilliant yellows and scarlets are the brownish red of heleniums, the plum of balsams, the magenta of straw flowers, the maroon of petunias. In such company of many colors the Mexican sage and sunflowers lose their individuality yet retain the brilliancy that gives vitality to the picture and renders it scintillating with light and palpitant with color energy.

BELOW - The Nassau Country Club is to the bottom left, St Andrews Lane cuts through the middle with a jog to the west just past Titus Road. Speculations and Possibilities - At the jog or turn to the west you can see landscaping/hedges that could have been the entrance. To the left of this entrance is a smaller shingled structure that is out of character to the neighborhood so perhaps it was a outbuilding of some sort. The area in question matches the above maps. What catches my eye is the double row of trees that can be seen to the west of the country club. Perfect location for "one of the most colorful of modern gardens."
