The landscaping of the island was carried out by Morell and Nichols Inc. (Morell died in 1924, so Nichols was the responsible designer.) Nichols devised a more informal approach to the island landscape. The area around the island chapel was cleared and a curving path was planned that led from the bridge to the northwest and up the slope to the island chapel entrance. Elements of this path still exist in the form of granite steps and limestone flagstones that follow the original curving form.
