Joseph Bonaparte was renowned for his formal gardens at Point Breeze. Harris Hammond's boxwood hedges were the longest in the country during the 1920s. as well as the creation of his Chinese rock garden swimming pool, which is allegedly the most unique garden in Bordentown today.  Edmund Sturtevant created the first aquatics nursery in Bordentown, and Franklin Carr's efforts in the growing of the hybrid iris have resulted in 12 international awards and his irises can be found in Buckingham Palace and the Vatican.
