    Excerpt from Description of Plan for the Improvement of Fairmount Park

    The terraces to the east of the house, instead of destroying, we propose to turn into an interesting feature not often seen in parks, but which the small instances in Washington and Frank lin Squares, show to be highly appreciated by the masses. We mean the introduction of beds of roses and ¿owering shrubs. These terraces are prettily adapted for this purpose.

    Flowering vines can also be profitably employed in adorning rocks and summer houses to be noticed hereafter.

    A certain amount of diversity of color is always produced by planting the different varieties of trees of whatever kind together. But attention should sometimes be especially directed to this feature by placing groups at some little distance from the drives composed of trees selected for the purpose, such as the Scarlet Oak, Sugar, Norway and Red Maples, Abele, Purple Beech, English Beech, Sassafras, Liquidambar, White Birch, Dogwood, Ste.

    Whenever a cluster is formed it should not be composed wholly of trees that do not branch out till at some distance from the ground, which thus present their naked and bare stems, but small trees and shrubs should be judiciously interspersed amongst them, so as to blend the mass easily and freely with the ground. The rhododendron is especially desirable for this purpose as it thrives well under larger trees.
