Yella Hertzka founded the first advanced horticultural school for women within the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in 1913. About 10 years later, Grete Salzer and Dr Paula Fürth established their own businesses in the same Viennese upper-class district each consisting of a perennial nursery, a garden architecture studio and a horticultural school. Hanny Strauss ran a nursery in her radically modern house in 1914, and Helene Wolf operated a nursery and a garden architecture practice near Vienna. All four garden architects created modern gardens in and around Vienna and cooperated with designers and architects from the Austrian Werkbund. They were violently expulsed in 1938–39
