Varying Form:
Sampson Beasley Garden.
General:
Ample rainfall and favorable growing conditions are evident in the lush 5 to 7-acre garden that features naturalistic plantings of shrubs, perennials and annuals that blend into the woodlands of native Pacific Madrone and cedar trees. There are many garden rooms with distinctive and whimsical features, including a frog grotto, a walkway made of the bottoms of recycled glass bottles, a blue garden of shiny orbs, and a more conventional walkway lined with peonies, beds with late-blooming red perennials, a rose and yew garden, fish pond, and a shade garden planted in hostas, ferns and hydrangeas. Native rocks are placed strategically in garden beds and used in an alpine rock wall. When the garden was created with landscape designer Michael Schultz plants of varying shapes were selected to create complex visual patterns, and located where the growing conditions would be favorable to the species.
Landscape designer Michael Schultz creates gardens that feature varying textures and colors of plant material, and innovative uses of hardscape elements.
Persons associated with the garden include Dave Green (previous owner, 1970-1980); Michael Schultz (landscape designer); Cynthia Woodyard (landscape designer).

Place:
Shadwell Farm, (Versailles, Kentucky)
United States of America -- Kentucky -- Woodford County -- Versailles
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, copies of the garden plan with plant names, and brochure with location of farm.
General:
A Kentucky Heritage Farm, Shadwell Farm is located in the historic agricultural area of Woodford County. The brick farm house was built in 1812. There are two barns dating to about 1885. Also, there exist many out buildings such as an old corncrib, smoke house, chicken house, outhouse, and a cistern. Adjacent to the garden area is a large fishing pond (four acres). In 1991, a landscape architect was employed to renovate the garden area. Arbors were built of cedar trees arranged in the desired shape then allowed to weather. The four gates of the large vegetable garden use this same design. Much of the garden has been naturalized and there are numerous boxwood. A fruit orchard of twenty-five trees is adjoining the vegetable garden. Within the area there are several benches of weathered wood--one is built around a tree near the entrance arbor. The old corncrib is used as a sculpture centered among four ornamental crab apple trees.
Persons associated with the garden include: Amos Stout (former owner, 1812-?); John W. Stout (former owner); John Lindsey Stout (former owner); Nancy Taylor Breanne (landscape architect, 1991); Sara Tate (architect, 1989); and Wendal Sherman (gardener).

This practice has since ceased.
