Blowing Rock -- The Cottage Garden

Provenance:
The French Broad River Garden Club Foundation  Search this
Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
The Cottage Garden (Blowing Rock, North Carolina)
United States of America -- North Carolina -- Blowing Rock
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet and site maps.
General:
The property consists of 3.73 acres. The original house on the property was removed. A parking area and a few stone retaining walls remain from the previous owners. Access to the new Gothic-style house, located in the center of the property, required a series of stairs and walkways to connect the house to the existing parking area. The design called for stairs placed on an axis with the front door of the house for a grand vista in the classical style. The very top is a double switchback with stairs at a stone wall and niche for sculpture. The lower sets of stairs were built with cheek walls and a pedestal positions for urns or ornamentation. The final set of stairs were in a new retaining wall that created a level drive at the front door. Within the circular loop drive, perennial beds were laid out on semi-circular gravel paths. The property also incorporated a cottage garden and woodland garden. An "electric" mix of evergreens, deciduous flowering shrubs, groundcovers, perennials and annuals cover the landscape. "Organized chaos with an emphasis on organized" characterize the landscape designers' style.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Betsy Alexander Patterson (former owner, ?-1915); Mildred Patterson Beard (former owner, 1915-1980); Alexander Patterson Beard (former owner, 1980-1996); Sammy Greeson (architect); Laura Bischofs-Himmelman (landscape designer, 1997); Robert Arner Himmelman (landscape designer, 1997); and Virginia Bullman (sculptor for garden statuary)

Collection Creator:

Type:

Place:
Elizabeth Lawrence Garden (Charlotte, North Carolina)
United States of America -- North Carolina -- Mecklenburg County -- Charlotte
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, research papers (2004), magazine articles, copies of newspaper article, woody plant list (June 2005), Elizabeth Lawrence Garden foundation mission, and site maps.
Biographical / Historical:
Elizabeth Lawrence, author of A Southern Garden (1942) and other garden-related books.
General:
Established in 1949 by Elizabeth Lawrence, the property has no lawn. The entire property, only 75x225 feet, includes a parking area, driveway, and house. The remaining space is plantings and pathways. A narrow path between a bamboo hedge and a fence covered with garden tiles provides the garden entrance. In the back, intricately designed partiers are outlined with stone. Numerous seating areas and small statuary are found throughout the garden. Designed for privacy in a neighborhood of close neighbors, Elizabeth Lawrence used the garden as a laboratory and sat at a desk overlooking the garden. The garden was renovated in 1986 and is maintained by a devotee of her work. According to the Garden Conservancy, the structure of the garden remains "essentially the same and as much as sixty percent of Lawrence's own plantings continue to prosper." The Friends of the Elizabeth Lawrence Garden, with the Garden Conservancy, was formed to preserve the garden.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Elizabeth Lawrence (former owner, 1949-1984), James Sommers (former owner, 1984-1986); Elizabeth Lawrence (landscape designer); David Wagner, AIA (remodel architect); Steve Del Vecchio (gardener); Mecklenburg County Master Gardeners (volunteer project); Charlotte Garden Club, affiliated with Mint Museum (volunteer in garden); and Friends of Elizabeth Lawrence (foundation for preservation).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, site map, land survey map, and copies of photographs before garden installation.
General:
"Cairn" is a Scottish term indicating a mound of rough stones marking a high place. Laird is a paternal ancestral name. Cairn Laird is a garden in the Sugar Hollow community--founded in the 1950s by Chicago emigres--of Fairview. The design and construction began in April 1999. The property consists of ten acres, two and a half of which comprise the house and gardens. Clearing and construction of the loamy woodland soil has created microclimates with full sun as well as deep shade. Natural features were used to organize a system of themed gardens and destinations for entertaining and meditation. The heart of Cairn Laird is the dining/entertaining area, which is oriented to capitalize on the views of Mount Pisgah. Other garden highlights include the White Garden; a children's woodland garden; the beehive garden; the camellia room and the koi pond. The series of garden areas is connected by stone steps and moss covered paths. A 600 square foot greenhouse was added in 2003 to house a large orchid collection, citrus, and banana trees.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Robert and Mae Fitch (former owners, 1987-1998); April Carder (landscape architect, 1999); Brenwen La Joie (gardener, 2003-2005); Steven Townsend (gardener, 2004-2005); and David Gernandt (pruner, 2000-2005).
