Greenwood Gardens is an intact, early 20th century New Jersey estate, with buildings and garden features reflective of American Arts and Crafts aesthetics.  Greenwood Gardens’ mission is to preserve the historic architecture and landscape of the property and inspire and educate the public on nature and land stewardship.

This 2006 grant helped fund the stabilization and restoration of the main terrace retaining wall and garden steps.  The project was guided by a site conditions assessment, which was funded by a previous Trust grant.
