    One may hope that this is a plan with respect for the cultural historic value. As far as I know, there are only two parks / gardens that deserve to be protected as “green monuments”: The Wilhelmina Park and the garden around the Harry L. Johnson museum. Advice can be asked from the organisation for garden architecture history Cascade. The former chairwoman of this organisation, Carla Oldenburger, knows these two gardens.
    Look at: http://www.cascade1987.nl/
    and

    Both gardens deserve professional advice.
