Located on over ten acres of land, Hays Gardens was installed in 1992 and completed in 2001. The Hays Garden is a large, lakeside property with a variety of gardens, including a rose garden, a cottage garden, and a moon garden. The site was formerly a part of a rock quarry that operated over 80 years ago and large boulders still remain on the property. The house was built in the middle of a hillside that goes down to the lake. In 1992, the owners began the woodland garden, which is located at the side of the house and includes a pond and waterfall from rock outcroppings. In 1996, Chester Brown helped the owners install the half round rose garden and moon garden. A rose covered arbor marks the entrance to the rose garden with walkways lined by boxwood and germander. The moon garden contains white and pale blue flowers. The property includes a guest house with a cottage garden. The cottage garden contains a wide variety of herbs, perennials, and annuals and is anchored by four evergreens. A tall bird house is located at the center and at one end is a rose covered pergola.

United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Lafayette Hill
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, plant lists, and other information.
General:
Set in a tree-filled valley The Andorra Garden of Mr. and Mrs. George Q Nichols was inspired by English cottage gardens, with an antique stone barn and stone walls as well a formal courtyard created by landscape designer Frederick Peck in the 1950s. The property comprises five acres that once were part of a tree farm and benefits from the remaining mature trees. The recent owners concentrated on growing flowering shrubs, perennials and annuals including New Dawn and Madam Alfred Carriere climbing roses, tree peonies, clematis, climbing and bush hydrangea, Oriental poppies, delphinium, acanthus, hollyhocks, columbines, and foxgloves. Flower arrangements filled the house and were entered into competition at the Philadelphia Flower Show. The design of the garden included flowering borders along axial gravel paths that led between the barn and the house with large swaths of lawn. Borders with roses, clematis and honeysuckle growing up trellises were planted on either side of the eight-foot high stucco walls that enclose the garden. Three arched entries into the old barn are echoed in an antique arch over a doorway in the walls, and in an enormous mirror mounted on the house. The formal courtyard near the house includes a restored octagonal garden bed with a fountain in the center. The stone fireplace from the original kitchen outbuilding is nearby.
Flowers in darker shades of maroon, brown and black were featured in the garden to provide contrast and definition to the spaces. Antique stone benches and wrought iron pieces were featured. A sculpture created from a hoe, rakes, a shovel, watering can, bucket, scythe and other tools mounted on the side of the barn commemorates all the work that went into this garden, and the ones that preceded it.
The area was settled in 1700s by Swiss German farmers and the original farmhouse and barn were built circa 1750. In 1850 Richard Wistar bought the property and named it Andorra Farm. He planted many trees and intended to build a mansion on his estate but died in 1863. In 1882 the property was purchased for further development by Henry Howard Houston and a tree farm was established, later owned and run by the nurseryman William Warner Harper. Although much of the surrounded acreage was sold and developed for housing the Houston family retained ownership of part of the original property. A granddaughter of Henry Houston, Eleanor Houston Smith and her husband Lawrence Smith, donated 100 acres in the 1970s to Fairmount Park. It is now the Wissahickon Environmental Center, and its visitors' center is in a nurseryman's cottage that was built around a sycamore tree although that tree is no longer standing.
Persons associated with the garden include Richard Wistar (former owner, 1850-1863); Henry Howard Houston and family (former owners, beginning in 1882); William Warner Harper (nurseryman and former owner of Andorra Tree Farm, 1920-1934); Lukens family (former owners, beginning in 1929); George and Audrey Nichols (former owners, 1976-2008); Frederick Peck (landscape designer, 1950's).

General:
Architect Lamont H. Button built this house for his family in the late 1920s, on a 60 by 175 foot lot that had belonged to a farm with a cherry orchard on the edge of town. Re-using discarded Belgian blocks from a street project in Pittsburgh he built a tall house with European arts and crafts features such as the deeply inset arched front door with a ceramic tile attributed to Pewabic Pottery set in a millstone as the stoop. The house is adjacent to Frick Park and landscaping of the sloped site blurs the transition between its grounds and the park. The garden in front of the house is densely planted with Japanese maples, a weeping weigela, magnolia, holly, lace-cap hydrangea and Japanese snowbell. There are stone paths and a stone bridge across a dry river rock stream that leads to a stone bench set among white azaleas. Under plantings in the front yard include pachysandra, Lenten rose, geranium, epimedium, strawberry, spring bulbs, Japanese anemones, and daisies. The doorway is wreathed by ivy and a climbing rose arches over a bay window.
There is a narrow walkway to the rear garden between the house and a grape arbor. The bluestone patio is shady and has a wall fountain with a rill cut into the patio and down the steps to the park. Plants include hosta, fern, cyclamen, lilies, astilbe, and white climbing hydrangeas, with pots on the steps and a window box filled with colorful annuals. Wisteria and fall clematis grow on an iron trellis. Steps lead down to a lower green garden paved with river gravel with a bench between two green Asian rice pots. There is an ancient oak tree thought to be at least 125 years old anchoring this garden with an understory of Solomon's seal, jack in the pulpit, and ferns. Wind chimes in the trees and a hammock for reading are in another secret garden further down the hill.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lamont Hartung and Blanche Button (former owners, 1927); Albert and Wiggins (former owners, dates unknown); Nicholas and Louise Criss (former owners, 1958-1995); Lamont Hartung Button, AIA (architect, 1920s?); Sarah Drake, AIA (architect, 1995); Joel C.

The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of an article, photocopies of historical records, garden plans, and a title summary for the property.
General:
The formal walled garden at Feathers, created in 1996 by the current owner along with landscape designer Lisa Thompson, is a small part of the six and one-half acre property with the original circa 1730 house. The 31 by 23 foot formal garden is divided into four parterres edged in boxwood with walks made from old bricks to match a standing old brick wall. A pink rose standard grows in the center of each parterre, surrounded by low-growing ground covers and annual flowers such as pansies. The brick wall is covered in climbing hydrangea and clematis, and has three arched doorways that lead into the garden. A bronze sculpture of the owner's son as a child created by his grandmother, Mary Emma Flood (1900-1987), overlooks the garden from a niche in the brick wall.
The spring-fed property overlooks Beaver Lake, where there is a small house and rock and fern garden. There is another garden of perennial and ornamental grasses near the lake, and many mature trees. A brick room next to the main house that held a furnace in earlier days has New Dawn roses trellised on the roof.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Wright (former owner and builder of the original house, circa 1730-1741); Isaac Frost and members of the Frost family (former owners, circa 1741-1763); John Underhill and members of the Underhill family (former owners, 1763-1901); Ella Kennard (former owner, 1901); Harvey Murdock and members of the Murdock family (former owners, 1901-1927); Alicia Gamble Ludlow (former owner, 1927-1953); Innis, Helen S., and Blanche S.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
This secret garden lies behind an arched doorway in the high stucco wall that surrounds the 1.5 acre property that includes a 1910 English revival house with large Tudor style chimneys. The current garden that was conceived and installed in 2008 has four planting beds surrounded by hedges with a grass walkway down the center with a large fountain feature. The formality of the design was softened by the cool color scheme of perennials and flowering shrubs planted within the enclosed beds, including peonies and knockout roses. Trellises along the high walls support climbing roses while other trellises at the back of the house support morning glories. Mature trees and shrubs from earlier gardens on the site provide shade, including two crab apple trees growing in the back beds. A circular garden in front of the house also was replanted in soft shades that compliment the blue stucco building.
Persons associated with the garden include: James and Margeretta Webb (owners of the land); Mr. and Mrs. George Davidson (former owners, 1909-1925); Frederick and Carrie Sperry Beinecke (former owners, 1925-1949); Drew University (former owner, 1949-1953); Harrie Lindeberg (1879-1959) and John F. Capen (architects, 1909-1910); Thomas Spagnold (garden designer, 2008); Marta McDowell (garden designer and gardener, 2008-present).

Hubbard Garden related holdings consist of 2 folders, 60 35 mm. slides (1995) and 44 digital images (2018). Folders include numerous photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
The two-acre property has a 1937 Colonial revival house and gardens that have been reworked many times since 1969 when the current owners moved in. The sloping property has been terraced, replacing a grassy hillside in back with dense plantings and winding stone walkways that lead eventually to a woodland garden. Along the front of the house there are three courtyards connected by a broad brick walkway that culminates at an antique cast iron bench painted turquoise blue; the doorway to the house is through another small private courtyard off to one side under a rough timber pergola. A curving 840-square-foot swimming pool with a dark gray reflective interior has a stone wall with fountains. The owners have collected thousands of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs that fill the terraces in front and back as well as screen their property. Conifers that have year round interest include Japanese umbrella pine, blue spruce, hinoki cypress, and Japanese cedar. There are modernist sculptures places around the upper terraces, along with a fish pond. Raised beds for growing vegetables now grow tulips and other flowers. Dwarf conifers and sedum are planted in hypertufa troughs. Other plant collections include more than 150 varieties of daylilies, hydrangeas, azaleas, rhododendron and ornamental grasses that were amassed by landscape architect Kurt Bluemel. The areas designed by Bluemel hug the hillside with curving terraces supported by dry stone walls that bring the gardens into closer association with the house. Perennials are planted in large drifts while evergreens are used as backdrops and screens. Plants that succumb are replaced with different varieties and deer fencing was installed in 2009.
Persons associated with the property include: Dr. and Mrs. Henrich (former owners, 1937-1969); T. Worth Jamison (1893-1964) (architect, 1937); Kurt Bluemel (1933-2014) (landscape designer, 1990); Ingrid Ernestl (gardener, 1994-2010); Ulrich Ruckriem (sculptor); Ian Aurbuch (sculptor); Matthew Harris (sculptor); Costas Velatsis (sculptor); Anthony Card (sculptor); Wade Saunders (sculptor); and Jon Iserwood (sculptor).

United States of America -- Maine -- Hancock County -- Mount Desert -- Northeast Harbor
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
Situated on a 4.2 acre property, this classic English cottage-style cutting garden was designed and constructed in 2005-2006. One enters the garden by ascending a sweep of natural granite steps which lead to a wooden moongate flanked by tall granite pillars salvaged from a nearby abandoned quarry. The intimate garden space has four classically scaled garden quadrants surrounding a central circular flower bed. Serving as the anchor for the garden design is a pergola situated to the east of the vegetable and flower parterres. Inspired by works done in the early 1900's by the landscape architect Beatrix Farrand, the pergola features rounded moon windows and a larger moongate doorway facing west. The circle motif found in the pergola and and garden entrance moongate is mirrored in the design of the teak furniture housed in the pergola, as well as in the garden layout. Garden ornaments include two custom-made bronze tuteurs and an antique armillary-sundial. The garden walkways are paved with crushed granite and edged in roughhewn granite cobblestones, both of which are sourced from the same local quarry as the stone steps and pillars at the garden entrance.
The pergola is covered with crimson glory vine, a hardy ornamental grapevine. Smoketree, fringetree, and hydrangea accentuate the deciduous plantings in the outer perimeter of the garden, and a native woodland has been supplemented with the addition of wild geranium, hostas, assorted ferns and and white pine and white spruce plantings. The inner garden beds feature perennials such as echinacea, astilbe, salvia, peonies, and aconitum along with vegetables, seasonal annuals and bulbs for cut flowers.
Persons associated with the garden include: Bruce John Riddell (landscape architect, 2005-2006); Gordon B. Robb (stonemason and landscaper, 2005-2006); Robert Breeden (metalsmith, 2005-2006); Ralph Allen (carpenter, 2005-2006); and Danielle Neal (gardener, 2007-present).
