Place:
Spalding Garden (Milton, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Milton
Date:
circa 1924
General:
Landscape architect Fletcher Steele designed the gardens for this 12-acre property in Milton, Massachusetts which belonged to Philip and Katherine Spalding, beginning circa 1924. His abstract design included 9-foot high patterned brick walls (with built-in benches) and walkways that delineated garden rooms, and the lack of geometric scheme suggested secret gardens. The design was laid out with views across the bowling green to the Great Blue Hill. Distinct features included a bowling green planted with a double allee of English elms underplanted with broadleaf evergreen shrubs and perennial borders. An oval perennial garden on the other side of the Georgian Revival house was planted for continuous flowering in spring, summer and fall. There was a dogwood path, a bosquet planted with flowering trees and shrubs, a columbine walk, and framing rows of double boxwood. Landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman also worked on the Spalding Garden, circa 1927 to 1938. Flowering plants in the perennial garden included iris, bleeding heart, peonies, pinks, and forget-me-nots for spring into early summer; phlox, yellow daylilies, meadow rue and lobelia for summer; and asters, chrysanthemums and anemones for fall. Katherine Spalding was the third president of the Milton Garden Club. The Milton Garden Club acquired one-half acre of the property in 2004 in order to protect that part of Steele's design. Houses have been built on the rest of the property. The half-acre includes walls, walkways, boxwood borders, and a stone fountain, and is being restored, with Lucinda Brockway of Past Designs. The Milton Garden Club has historic photographs and will conduct tours by appointment. Persons associated with the garden include Philip and Katherine Spalding (former owners, 1917-1950; Fletcher Steele (landscape architect, circa 1924-1928); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, circa 1927-1938; Milton Garden Club (current owner, 2004-present).

General:
Although Alice Recknagel Ireys worked on the design of the Merson garden between 1955 and 1970, the images in this series were taken no later than 1967, since several of them are featured in her book of that year. The Merson's large Georgian house was built in the middle of a field, so Ireys' design included plenty of trees and shrubs to frame and soften its rather formal entrance. Azaleas provided springtime bloom at both the main entrance and elsewhere, while laurel, hollies, andromeda, and myrtle were used for year-round green affect. A terrace at the rear of the house was accented by a honey locust and a dogwood, while holly hedges separated a broad lawn area from surrounding woods and delineated a parking area from the rest of the property.
Additional documentation relating to the garden may be found in the Alice Recknagel Ireys papers in the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College.
Persons associated with the garden include: Alice Recknagel Ireys (landscape architect, 1955-1970) and David and Hazel Merson (former owners, circa 1955-1970).

General:
Alice Recknagel Ireys designed the landscaping around this Cape Cod style home in a woodland setting. Photographs, plant lists, and designs for several features were included in Ireys' 1967 book. A small flagstone terrace provided space for outdoor living adjacent to the lawn and was ornamented by a climbing rose and wisteria. Pink azaleas and a white dogwood lined the home's front entrance. A hemlock hedge at the side of the house masked the garage courtyard from view of the flagstone terrace.
