Pierce Garden (Dallas, Texas)
Date:
2014
Notes:
In 2014 this half-acre property had 233 different rose plants in raised beds, all documented on spread sheets that included each rose's name, code name, class, color and color code, location, scent, year planted, parentage, hybridizer and registration. Railroad ties were used to build the eight-foot beds scattered around the brick ranch-style house. The garden was started circa 1997 and has become a local feature each spring. Each plant was selected for its color, fragrance, petal count and growth habit, and the roses are cut and shown. Those that do not meet expectations are dug out and replaced. Most are hybrid tea varieties or grandifloras; some are kept for fragrance. Every winter remaining leaves are stripped from the canes, all debris is removed from the beds, each rose is fed with Epsom salts, and a regular program of fertilizing and spraying is carried out until the weather gets too hot. Hydrangeas, herbs in pots, and peonies also are grown.

The White Garden (Memphis, Tennessee)
Date:
2013
Notes:
The White Garden was established in 2010 when the owners moved from a larger property to a home in a cul-de-sac on less than one-third acre. The garden design is formal, predominantly green with white flowers and pockets of brightly colored roses and hydrangeas for cutting. Several varieties of boxwood clipped into hedges, spheres and cones unify the front and rear gardens. There is a formal parterre next to the front door of the house with a stone obelisk featured at its center. A rose garden next to the garage is in a sunny location and is bordered by boxwood and a low stone wall. The walled back garden has a swimming pool with a wall fountain and a brick fireplace with a tall chimney. Confederate jasmine trained to mimic lattice grows on some of the walls while climbing hydrangea covers and softens other portions. Stepping stones along the side of the property peek out under colorful hydrangeas, clematis grown on tuteurs, and a small herb garden behind the fireplace. Urns and other planters have more foliage boxwood with primarily white flowers planted underneath.
Persons associated with the garden include Wilda Humphreys Estate (former owners); BHK Development Company (former owners, 1995); Kostka Investment Company (former owners, 1996); Margaret and Ronald Troy (former owners, 2003); Geri Pitts (garden designer, 2010).

2014-2015
Notes:
This is a three-quarter acre urban garden growing since 1987 around a 1926 Tudor-style house that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an Historic District property. The densely-planted gardens are described as an informal museum of perennials, native plants, shrubs and trees since the owners have created more gardens and kept adding plant materials for almost thirty years. The first foundation garden planted in front of the house included juniper, hollies, and rhododendrons, later filled in with dozens of perennials and more shrubs including azaleas, day lilies, hydrangea, iris, peonies, allium, hosta, mountain laurel, English ivy, geraniums and rhubarb. Now in front of the house there are perennial borders all the way to the street, alongside the driveway and in island beds around trees. In the first years of ownership a bluestone patio was built off the sun room, with a patio garden eventually planted with weigela, tree peony, ferns, ladies mantle, ginger and more. A long perennial border that contained only azaleas and a crabapple was amended with peonies, lilies, bachelor buttons, lady's mantle, anemone, coreopsis and more.
When two diseased hemlocks near the patio had to be removed a sunny garden area opened up that was planted with kousa dogwood, hydrangea, rhododendron and new varieties of hosta. A shaded woodland garden border was created for May apple, wood poppy, astilbe, ginger, lily-of-the-valley, Solomon's seal, blood root and a burr oak. Two raised beds for vegetables were added in the sunny lawn, growing tomatoes, peas, beans, squash, lettuce, carrots and basil.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles Blake (former owner, 1926-1946); Louise Garvin (former owner, 1946-1975); Thomas Valashinas (former owner, 1975-1978); Michael Budlong (former owner, 1978-1986); Russell F.

2012-2015
Notes:
Installation of the Smith Garden was begun in 2011 on the two-acre property with a new L-shaped house and a smattering of mature trees; in 2013 this garden won their local Great Gardens Contest Large Garden Category award. Ornamental trees including holly, hemlock, Japanese maples, dogwood, serviceberry, spruce, oaks and pines were added to the standing white oak, beech, white pines, maples, tulip poplar, oaks and cucumber magnolia after other diseased and dead trees had been removed. The upper garden directly behind the house is entered through an arbor decked with rose and clematis. The center circle of lawn is surrounded by sun-loving perennials including day lilies, phlox, iris, and peonies. Throughout the garden there are repeated stands of smoke bush, lilacs, landscape roses, David Austin roses trained on obelisks and trimmed blue spruce with holly borders. Stands of holly and red twig dogwood create winter interest. Blue stone steps lead to the main patio and pergola; garden beds in this area are planted with dwarf conifers, sedums, spring bulbs, a succulent garden with a fountain, and a blue bush clematis the owner has moved from one garden to another for many years. On the lower elevation the shade garden has oak leaf hydrangea, hemlock, hostas, bleeding heart, spreading English yews, viburnum, rhododendron, spiraea, mountain laurel and buckeye.
Opposite the house across the driveway there is a stand of white pines with a mass of sumac for fall color. The walkway to the front door is composed of large flagstones that are permeable since underground springs have created problems in this garden. Planted areas with wet feet had to be raised. A bio-retention swale at a lower elevation planted with swamp white oak, bald cypress and other water tolerant plants collects the storm water run-off from the house and driveway. More property was purchased in 2013: close to one-half acre that was formerly woodlands but was inundated with wild rose, grape vine, honeysuckle, poison ivy and other invasive plants. This eyesore on the approach to the house was reforested with mostly native woody plants and herbaceous perennials, a wood chip walkway, wildflower meadow, wetland plants by a stream and grasses in the twenty foot set-back along the road required for utilities. Altogether 66 trees, 12 evergreens and 70 shrubs were planted, including beech, red maple, river birch, hawthorn, redbud, swamp azalea, dogwood, holly, and conifers. The wildflower meadow with coneflower, false indigo, bergamot, and aster attracts birds, honey bees and butterflies. Comprising the ground layer under the trees and shrubs are native plants including lobelia, swamp hibiscus, fern, and milkweed.
Persons associated with the garden include John Lloyd (former owner); Adam Wagener (former owner, 12/31/1883- ); Hays and Letty Lytle (former owners, 12/01/1925-); John H. Follansbee, Jr. (former owner, 2/20/1961-); Jules Labarthe, The Design Alliance (architect, 2009-2011); Melissa Marshall, MTR (landscape architect, 2009-2010); Richard Liberto (garden design and horticulturist, 2013-2015); Mikell Schenck (designer, 2008-2012); Joy Benusa (horticulturist, 2008-); Chuck and Elaine Skalski (gardeners, 2008-); Dave Lombardi (stone mason, 2008-); Stephen W.

Notes:
A side yard of 3000 square feet was transformed into a series of formal garden rooms with boxwood borders, brick walkways and strategically placed bronze sculptures. The large brick house had no views of the outdoors since the courtyard in back was covered by a Plexiglas conservatory, and the heart-shaped small courtyard at the front door was hidden by unpruned trees and boxwood. Tall trees on the neighbors' properties shaded the side yard which needed to be graded before boxwood hedges and brick walkways could be installed. Privacy was achieved by planting white pines, yew hedges and hemlock. A bluestone stepping stone path leads from the front of the house to the brick walkway and first garden room with perennial flower beds on either side of the walk and a large planted urn at the end of the walk. On the other side of the boxwood hedge there is an herb garden with dwarf fruit trees planted in containers and some of the owners' collection of millstones used to contain individual plants. A small kitchen garden is sited next to the house across the main walkway. Bronze sculptures with azaleas, hydrangea and vinca and lirope groundcovers are next in the progression to the rear of the property. There one finds a miniature garden and cutting garden with an armillary sphere and an arbor.
In the courtyard behind the house there are dogwood and hydrangea and white flowers bordered by boxwood, and a central brick fountain with a putti and goldfish; the conservatory was removed. The front courtyard garden planted with boxwood, Japanese maple and English ivy is entered through a wrought iron gate. In front of the house there is a semi-circular driveway with a lawn and mature trees. Across the driveway under the trees a garden with boxwood, yew, allium and hosta has a whimsical topiary gnome.
Persons associated with the garden include Paul and Betty Henson (former owners, 1966-2010); The Greensman (landscape and hardscape, 2010); Lorelei Gibson (garden designer, gardener and horticulturist, 2011).

2013-2016
Notes:
The Birdcraft Museum and Sanctuary was founded in 1914 by ornithologist and author Mabel Osgood Wright on ten acres of land, former pasture that had been donated and deeded to the fledgling Connecticut Audubon Society. It was established as a refuge for migratory and other song birds; the birds prefer open or partly bushed fields with some tall trees so the early plantings augmented the trees and shrubs already growing. The existing trees included mature oaks, Pepperidge, cedars, maples, black cherries and alders, and trailing wild berries. To prepare the sanctuary pines, spruce and hemlocks were planted for windbreaks, mountain ash, mulberries, sweet cherries, flowering shrubs and vines were planted for food, and several stone birdbaths and numerous bird houses were installed as well as a cat-proof fence. Additional plantings included blackberries, dewberries, thimble berries, strawberries, huckleberries, blueberries, chokeberries, sumacs, wild grapes, wild plum, shad bush, elderberries, wild roses, sweetbriar and honeysuckle.
Starting in 2013 the Sasqua Garden Club has been restoring five different garden habitats with native plants that will support the ecosystem of animals, birds, insects and microorganisms. The gardens are living classrooms for the outdoor science-based education and augment the exhibits in the museum, also undergoing restoration. While many trees, shrubs and native perennials recur throughout the sanctuary, now reduced to six acres, each garden has a distinctive profile. The Woodland edge garden contains red chokeberry, dogwood, magnolia, and crab apple with spicebush, rhododendron, viburnum and an understory of coral bells, ferns, Virginia bluebells, and phlox. The Meadow garden includes wild flowers, winterberry, cedars and dogwood, grasses and low and high bush blueberries. In the Wetland garden there are Juneberry, serviceberry, milkweed, native azaleas, spicebush, river birch, native flowers and ferns. The Seaside garden has butterfly weed, sedge, beach plum, grasses and bayberry. The Terrace garden has mountain laurel, holly, honeysuckle, sumac, willow, coneflower and potentilla.
Birdcraft Sanctuary has been an important community resource ever since it opened in 1914. Every year birds are trapped in soft nets, counted, inspected, tagged and released supplying useful data on migratory bird populations. The sanctuary was enrolled on the National Register of Historic Places on June 23, 1982 and became a National Historic Landmark in 1993.
Persons associated with the garden include Annie B. Jennings (former owner, -1914); Mabel Osgood Wright (1859-1934) (founder of Birdcraft Sanctuary, 1914-circa 1934); Connecticut Audubon Society (owners since 1914);Cameron Clarke (1887-1957) (architect of the Swallow Chimney, 1937); Jack Franzen, (architect of new museum space, 2012-2014); Alice Eckerson (landscape architect, 2013- ); William Kenny (ecological services, 2013-2014); Andrew Loglisci (water features, -2016).

Notes:
The approximately two acre sloping property has a 1930's Tudor style house with a dovecote on the roof, natural rock formations, whimsical boxwood topiaries, a koi pond and a 24-square foot potager within owner-designed deer fencing: low stone walls topped with pierced wood panels. Beginning work in 1983 the current owners had to clear away rampant ivy and weeds to discover the rock ledges, three existing connecting pools, neglected shrubbery and gravel paths. Some of the benches placed around the property were built from stones found there. There is an expansive lawn between the house and street and many mature trees although some have been lost to storms in recent years. Antique stone containers are filled with seasonal flowers and tropical plants including bananas and hibiscus are grown in containers so they can be cut back and overwintered in the garage. The gardens have been grown organically for more than thirty years.
Within the fenced potager the owner grows vegetables, herbs, perennial flowers and roses with annual marigolds around the perimeter to discourage pests. Large clover-shaped and basket-shaped topiary boxwood are featured on the front side of the house, under planted with catmint, giant allium, daffodils, carpet roses and sedum. There are lantana standards in the pool garden and near the covered porch there is a white garden with David Austin rose standards, hydrangea, white bearded iris, and Casablanca lilies. Deer resistant scilla, vinca minor, fern and trillium are grown as understory in the woodland garden and combination plantings and sprays are used to discourage deer from the unfenced gardens around the house.
Persons associated with the garden include Ophelia Bercume (former owner, prior to 1929); the Edgar Company (former owners, 1929-1932); Albert C. Edgar (former owner, 1932-1936); Ethel Leddy (former owner, 1936-1944); Edwin H. and Patricia R. Somers (former owners, 1944-1948); Harriet Petersen (former owner, 1948-1951); Constance J.

Notes:
The owners describe their collection of approximately one hundred different trees and shrubs in the four season garden they designed as a new plantsmen's country garden. There are seven distinct gardens on the 45-acre property that also was designed to blend into the surrounding woodlands. The first garden to be seen approaching the house is a shaded woodlands garden with specimen trees and shrubs, mixed perennials in the understory beds and gravel paths. A 30-foot spring garden with ferns is off to one side. Next to the house there is a gravel patio with a trough garden planted with succulents and dwarf conifers. At the edge of the patio there is a 25-foot walled garden that has wooden fencing atop a low stone wall. Mount Monadnock is to the south, seen over a low stone wall that has a rock garden at one end and an island fall garden set in the field beyond. West of the house there is a woodland garden with a berries for birds garden at the south end.
Some of the trees, shrubs and perennials in this garden were obtained at Garden Club of America exchanges or from the seeds of arboretum trees. The many varieties of trees include Chinese elm, American yellowwood, American hop hornbeam, Japanese zelkova serrata, Japanese emperor oak, weeping tupelo, katsura, a cross of paperback and Norway maples, Ohio buckeye, and sugar maples, as well as native trees and shrubs. There is a small greenhouse at the house and a tree nursery on the property.

Notes:
Originally one acre this property was subdivided down to one-half acre by a previous owner, leaving the Georgian style house without a garden. Landscape architect Thomas D. Church designed a new garden behind the house that features a trefoil shaped swimming pool bordered by trees and a privacy hedge, next to a strip of lawn and woodlands garden. Church designed hardscape including masonry walls, gates, walkways and a brick surround for the pool that includes four planters. Trees in the back and side yards include coast Live oak, stone pine, maytens, coast redwood, and flowering cherries. The front and driveway gardens were designed by landscape architect Walter Guthrie, with the strong horizontal lines of boxwood hedges around the lawn and seasonal color from flowering cherries and pistache trees.
Persons associated with the garden include Dr. and Mrs. Walter Chidester (former owners, 1917); Mr. and Mrs. Richard Parina (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Porter Sesnon (former owners, -1974); Thomas Dolliver Church (1902-1978) (landscape architect, 1975-1977); Walter Guthrie (1932-2006) (landscape architect, 1977-1978); Claud and Cali McCroskey (horticulturists, 1993-2013); William C.

1957, 2013-2016
Notes:
Beginning in 1955 the owners have transformed their slightly more than one acre property and created garden rooms; their first step was to remove the foundation planting of fitzer juniper. The design for this property began with the L-shaped lawn edged by a mix of large trees from the neighboring municipal park to the east. Specimen and ornamental tree starters including white pines, dogwood and redbud were obtained free from the Missouri Department of Conservation and were planted in layers around the perimeter for privacy and to shelter the understory plantings of azaleas and perennials. A yew hedge was planted along the driveway behind peonies and other seasonal perennials. The owner built her own parking court walls and planted magnolias for shade. The low stone walls defining several terraces also were do-it-yourself projects. A climbing rose overlooks the terrace to the south and nearly fills the space between two doors. Mandeville vines planted in window boxes and a trumpet vine that has spread over the roof of the garage and the parking court wall also soften the formal lines of clipped hedges. A small circular herb garden was planted inside a clipped privet hedge at the end of a stretch of the local river gravel used to pave the terraces.
In 2014 groups of mature yew bushes were replaced with groupings of upright conical arborvitae and hydrangeas. Decorative garden accessories include four small statues representing the four seasons, a small fountain, a limestone female statue reflected in a wall mirror, and other limestone or lead figures. Wrought iron and antique-style wire outdoor furniture and swan planters complement the French Neoclassical style of the house. Annuals are planted in pots so they can be moved around the terraces.
Persons associated with the garden include Ralph Cole Hall (architect, circa 1937); Dian C. Schock (garden designer, 1955- ); Delane Schnarr (landscape designer, 2014).
