Place:
Gibson Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet; site plans; six books of garden diary information and magazine and newspaper publication copies; and dvd.
General:
The purpose of this garden was to create an oasis of serene beauty, incorporating four outdoor rooms that offer hospitality and peace. The "Cottage Garden" at the front of the house includes a walk through the woods. In spring, layers of white "cloud nine" dogwood make a display with tulips, azaleas and wild mountain laurel. This garden also shows bright colors in summer and autumn. The second room, called the "Natural Springs Garden" reveals a Japanese-style garden with koi ponds and a waterfall. A Japanese teahouse serves as the focal point of the space. The "Oak Lawn Garden," the third room, consists of memorabilia, such as a blue glass bottle tree, stone carved angels, and a Portuguese roundel, from the owner's former home in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas. "The Back Yard" garden receives the most sun of all the outdoor rooms. Five foot azalea borders hide the compost area. Most of the 900 square feet of The Back Yard garden is grassed on two levels with a symmetrically spreading native pecan tree holding a high hung double porch swing.
People associated with this property include: Ferne and Arthur Koch (former owners, early 1960s-1971); and Rosa Finsley (landscape designer, 1971-present).

Place:
Emmons Farm's Gardens (Fayette, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Fulton County -- Fayette
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a garden plan, a copy of an article about the garden, and additional information about the garden's history and design.
General:
This three-acre garden, situated on a 253-acre dairy farm in northwestern Ohio, was begun in the late 1980s. What started as a small rose garden to enhance the owner's view from the barn whilst milking the Holstein herd has evolved into a collection of over 900 rose plants on the farm grounds. Special emphasis is placed on species dating from before 1867, hybrid teas, and miniature roses. The rose gardens are complemented by terraced gardens of annuals in patriotic colors and can be seen, along with a fruit tree allée and vegetable garden, from a raised viewing terrace and pergola. Adjacent to this terrace is a water garden, complete with waterfall and dozens of goldfish. Additional garden features include a greenhouse and raised flower beds in geometrically designed gardens containing annuals and perennials. This is truly a fascinating Ohio farm garden and a tribute to its owners/designers' imagination, dedication, and American ingenuity.

General:
Established in 1991, this 900 square-foot garden is noted for its collections of pots and unusual plants, including an Asian Arisaema collection. The garden's focal point is a terrace surrounded by beds edged in boxwood and filled with roses, farfugium, fatsia, camellias, ferns, and seasonal plantings. Adjacent porches are covered in passion vines and grape.
Persons associated with the garden include: Fredrick Ball (former owner, ca. 1805) and Anne Lane (former owner, 1989-1997).
