Dallas -- Marsh Garden

Landscape architect:
Bliss, Herman  Search this
Lambert, Joe  Search this
Provenance:
Founders Garden Club of Dallas  Search this
Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Marsh Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet, site plan, narrative description, and copy of aerial photograph.
General:
The original woody site features areas of vinca and grass sloping down into a slight dale, then rises to the entrance of a porch filled with potted plants. The original rose garden contained tea roses, which later became a white and white garden, and then changed to the present rose garden. The current rose garden contains boxwood hedges in the shape of an "X" and standard roses. The landscape has continued to evolve since the 1980s. Trees were added to the front and brick work was added to define the curved surfaces. The owners created another entrance to the backyard through the greenhouse and court area. In the rear, a fence was removed and a much larger area became available to cultivate. An upper level patio with a water fountain was created--increasing the area of planting substantially. Pots or container gardening was adopted and elaborated over many years with variety and seasonal blooming. The most recent addition in permanent plantings is a camellia garden at the west end of the swimming pool area. Flowering fruit trees, spirea, cherry laurel, Japanese maple, tulip magnolias and magnolias are integrated into the naturalistic setting.
People associated with this property include: Asher B. Kahn (former owner, 1938-1949); John O'Boyle (former owner, 1949-1972); Elizabeth Ferguson (former owner, 1972-1980); Howard Meyer (architect, 1937); Joe Lambert (landscape architect, ca. 1940-1950); Herman Bliss (landscape architect, 1980); and Charlene Marsh (rose garden designer, 1995).

Place:
Poplar Forest (Forest, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Bedford County -- Forest
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles about the site, site plans, brochures, and additional information about the house and garden.
General:
Situated between Lynchburg and Bedford, Virginia, Poplar Forest was a nearly 5,000-acre plantation inherited by Thomas Jefferson and his wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson from her father, John Wayles, in 1773. Martha Jefferson died in 1782, and it was only in 1806 that Thomas Jefferson began to design and build the Palladian-influenced house and gardens that still exist today. Serving as a retirement retreat during Jefferson's lifetime, the property was sold in 1828, two years after his death. It remained in private ownership until 1983, when a nonprofit corporation acquired it and began a process of archaeological and documentary research leading to its ongoing restoration. Jefferson's landscape design featured a circular road lined by paper mulberry trees, earthen mounds flanking the house, oval shrub beds, and a sunken lawn. Native trees, such as the tulip poplars from which the property takes its name (several of which survive from Jefferson's time), were planted throughout the grounds. The three images in the Archives of American Gardens' collection document the property at the time when it was still a private residence owned by the Hutter family and somewhat altered from Jefferson's original design. In addition, land sales over the years have reduced the size of the property to a mere fraction of its original size.
Persons associated with the property include Thomas Jefferson (architect, landscape architect, former owner, 1773-1826); Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson (former owner, 1773-1782); the Hutter family (former owners, ca. 1828-1946); and Mr. and Mrs. James O. Watts, Jr. (former owners, 1946-1983).

General:
A contemporary split-level house backed by a steep slope that washed into the house when it rained compelled the owners to erect walls and start planting a garden to hold the soil in place on their one-acre property. After nearly fifty years of gardening, there are four terraces with specimen trees, collections of flowering shrubs including rhododendrons and hydrangeas, seasonal color from bulbs and annuals, and distinctive ornaments and sculptures. In front of the house there are river birches at the curb, a Japanese maple at the front door, and banks and hedges of shrubs, perennials and evergreen ground cover plants. There is a stepping stone path to the patio in back of the house where there is terraced plateau with stone walls for seasonal plantings. An enormous katsura shades the patio and the two-story glass addition that provides year-round viewing of the hillside garden. On this first level there are redbuds and crepe myrtles, and sculptures and ornaments that were collected during travels.
A formal privet hedge divides the first and second levels and continues along the stone steps that lead from the first to the third terrace. The second level has a woodlands garden with azaleas, rhododendrons, and a small wooden shrine at one end of the lawn while at the other end a purple painted jungle gym formerly used by children and grandchildren now supports honeysuckle. Flagstone steps lead to a hidden stroll garden planted with dwarf evergreens, dwarf clumping bamboo, spruce and pines. A small stone pagoda and two antique statues of Chinese philosophers are in this private garden room. Further up the steps the third level opens to the broadest area of lawn on the property. A small pool has goldfish, a waterfall and water garden; all are shaded by three false camellias. Other trees include purple-leaf plum, Japanese maples and a stately umbrella pine. There is a Japanese style teahouse with a moon window at one end of the lawn and a hammock in the trees at the other end.
The highest terrace, not visible from below, is reached via wooden steps and a path lined with hakone grass, hostas and rhododendrons. A stone wall leads to an arbor made from birdhouses over a blue painted bench that conceals a compost pile. A mossy flagstone path bordered by a perennial garden that includes a specimen rhododendron and azalea leads to a large bronze sculpture of a woman, "Allegra" by Barbara Chen. Down two flights of steps there is a new rock garden with unusual dwarf plants shaded by a false cypress, still a work in progress.
Persons associated with the garden include Elizabeth Schumacher and H. Ralph Schumacher, M.D. (owners, 1967- ); Mary and Tom McDonnell (former owners, 1960-1967); Gordon Eadie (garden designer, 1970-present); John B. Ward and Co.

General:
The four acre property known as the Robb-Montgomery House, built in 1875, has deep woodlands, hundreds of flowering trees and shrubs, thousands of spring bulbs, an English style water garden under an ornate iron gazebo that has a lion's head wall fountain feeding the stone enclosed koi pond, a stone barn with a carved entablature over the door, dry stone walls and massive flags of local limestone - with the work conceived and carried out by the current owner over the past twenty years. The gardens are most colorful in spring when dogwoods, redbuds, magnolias, rhododendrons and azaleas are in bloom, along with swaths of tulips planted annually as well as beds of naturalized daffodils. Garden areas near the house were designed in the same late Victorian style and are embellished with statuary, fountains, birdbaths and granite wishing well, some of which were salvaged from other estates. The trees, shrubs and bulbs planted on the property have been selected for continuous bloom from February through May.
Mature trees including ashes, elms, maples, oaks and walnuts provide an open canopy over the contoured mixed borders and understory flowering trees, which include magnolias, Japanese maples, buckeyes, dawn redwoods, dove trees, franklin trees and two dwarf peach trees on the terrace. A mature magnolia found on the property motivated the purchase and restoration of the house and grounds. Deer control has been essential since the formal gardens lead to woodlands and ravines. Pesticides are not used on this property and a recent infestation of emerald ash borer will be managed by removing the ash trees.
Persons associated with the garden include: David T. Robb and Caroline Lockwood Robb, James W. and Caroline Robb Montgomery (former owners, 1875-1935); Cox family (former owners, 1935-1954); Minderman family (former owners, 1954-1960); Hickman family (former owners, 1960-1965); Fein family (former owners, 1965-1985); Frohman family (former owners, 1985-1993).
