The Country Place Era was a period from about c.1890 to 1930, of landscape architecture design during which wealthy Americans commissioned extensive gardens in their country estates, emulating European gardens that the Americans had seen in European travels.[1] Landscape architects involved include Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles Adam Platt, and Beatrix Farrand.[1] Marian Cruger Coffin, an early woman architect, was another partipant.[2]
