The Unusual Life of Edna Walling

Author(s): Sara Hardy

Author G-K | Don McMillan | Design/Landscape

Edna Walling designed over 300 gardens between 1920 and 1960 when most women were homemakers. Today her gardens are still considered to add value to real estate. Her achievements and the gardens themselves are well documented. Despite the fact she was a self-publicist and very unusual woman in her time, Edna's private life has remained a mystery.
