Chelsea's Garden Ruins

Some kind of garden feature on the side of Benjamin Moore's 'Chelsea' in Muttontown. There is a half moon of trees around a derelict pergola looking structure and all along the outside are the wooden polls seen in the foreground.

I've often wondered about those poles. Erchless has similar ones around the tennis court with netting in between - making for a much more attractive perimiter than the usual chain link.

If I am not mistaken, that would be the remains of a rose garden. The central feature is an arbor, while the free-standing poles (notice the eye hooks) would have been linked with chains, on which climbing roses would have been trained into massive garlands.
