Cording wins the Tulip Award, Mansion In May’s highest honor

Daily Record | May 2012

MORRISTOWN, NJ — “A garden is both personal and private; a place that is its own world. Among other things, it is a passage to somewhere else,” said Ron Cording of Cording Landscape Design, winner of this year’s landscape-space Tulip Award. The hillside Garden in the Glyn is a romantic retreat at the top of the glen with massive circular stone walls that create a grotto-like space. It rose from grounds hidden below years of neglect and is adorned with an eclectic mix of garden ornaments and walls that enclose a beautiful water feature and frame an incredible view of the glen.

Mansion In May is the signature fundraiser of the Women’s Association of Morristown Medical Center and has generated more than $6 million for the hospital since its inception in 1974. Proceeds from the May 2012 event will be directed toward the creation of an innovative $5 million Inpatient Hospice and Palliative Care Center at Morristown Medical Center. This center will be designed with a residential atmosphere to help relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for seriously ill patients.
