Elaine Steinberg’s garden looks exactly like the kind of painterly landscape one would expect a retired art curator to create. At every turn of the three-acre property, Elaine considers spectators, just as she would if she were positioning paintings in a gallery. She wants visitors to take in the garden from all angles, to notice the objects that draw the eye into another vista: trees, sculptures and water features. These are what Elaine calls “spotters.” “Once you spot them,” she explains, “your eye travels over the distance in between.”

A shed known as "the pumphouse" is just one of many whimsical objects peppering the garden. The shed sits near the property's massive pond, which is home to hundreds of frogs.
