Hidden Glen Farms (Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Abington Township -- Meadowbrook
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a copy of the garden plan, and three photos of the original Charles H. Gale installation from ca. 1983 (two of the same view). The garden is noted for its incorporation of colonial (eighteenth-century) design elements in a contemporary setting.
General:
"This garden was designed to enhance an eighteenth-century landscape and house setting. Landscape architect Charles H. Gale, Sr., was inspired by the architectural and horticultural research done at Colonial Williamsburg. He created a half acre of colonial gardens terraced to separate the formal flower and herb garden from the vegetable and fruit garden. The upper tier is in geometric subdivisions using English boxwood to edge and enclose spring bulbs, annuals, biennials, and perennials. Included are lilies, aquilegia, digitalis, delphinium, coreopsis, gallardia, phlox, astilbe, stokesia, Shasta daisies, yarrow, candytuft, alyssum, veronica, comfrey, and medicinal as well as cooking, and sweet-smelling herbs, the latter lining one side of the garden fence.
In each of the four geometric shapes is a five-foot, classical lead statue made in England. . . . The center circle has an eighteenth-century sundial. Fieldstone retaining walls, which contain the hill, and a sitting niche and bench with herbs underfoot utilize eighteenth-century ideas of garden construction. The vegetable and fruit garden, four stone steps down, is bordered on two sides by espaliered dwarf apple trees and grape vines. The small hill on the side of the steps is covered with lilies and strawberries. In one corner the fences join a garden tool house, which has a cedar shingled roof to match the family house and pool house roofs. Williamsburg clay birdhouses hang from one side of this house. The sheep pasture is adjacent to the garden. Fields and lower orchard go behind the garden. The tennis court,pool, woods and creek follow the lawns to the right."
Persons associated with the property include: Fred and Betty Conger (former owners, 1937-1963); Frederick W. G. Peck (landscape designer, 1967); Charles H.Gale (landscape architect, 1982); G. Edwin Brumbaugh (architect, 1937, 1966, 1969); Owen B. Schmidt & Sons (landscape architects, 1968); and John Milner (architect, 1981 and 1989).

The folder includes a worksheet, a copy of the garden plan, and three photos of the original Charles Gale installation from ca. 1983 (two of the same view).
General:
Like its neighbor, Hidden Glen Farms (PA348), Hidden Glen features design work by landscape designer Charles Gale. Although a basic garden was in place at the time of Gale's 1983 design, he incorporated the vegetable garden into the overall site plan, while adding a side garden and improving planting around the foundation of the house. Folk art ornaments and sculptures of birds and animals accented the plant material. The garden is noted for its incorporation of colonial (eighteenth-century) design elements in a contemporary setting.
Persons associated with the property include: Charles Gale (landscape designer, 1982); G. Edwin Brumbaugh (architect, 1937, 1966, 1969); Owen B. Schmidt & Sons (landscape architects, 1968); and John Milner (architect, 1981 and 1989).
