Place:
The Harborage (Southport, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Fairfield -- Southport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, biography of Alice Orme Smith, narrative description, tree list, terrace plan (1968); and garden plan.
General:
The Harborage was built in 1843 on the site of the homestead of merchant and politician, Oliver H. Perry; and remained in the Perry family until 1962. The house was known in its day as "The Sycamores" and "The Harborage." The garden comprises a large front lawn sloping down to Southport Harbor with lawns and borders behind the house surrounding terraces, paths, outbuildings and a pool with a woodland garden at the rear. In 1968, Alice Orme Smith built a flagstone terrace with a surrounding low wall at the rear of the house to inlcude an existing giant white pine and a dogwood tree. A freeform pool and waterfall were built beyond a rock ledge on the rear lawn between 1985 and 1990. In 1991, the present owners worked with Sylvia Erskine to design the layout of the garden as it exists today. The arbor vitae hedge along the front picket fence was removed and several crabapple trees were planted. A bluestone walk was built joining the house with the cottage, carriage house and garage. In 1993, the adjoining 1.2 acre lot beyond the garage was purchased and laid out as a woodland garden. The garden has evolved with the addition of a sunken courtyard, fountain, and the removal of the giant White Pine on the terrace.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Oliver H. Perry and family (former owners, 1843-1950); Charlotte Perry (former owner, 1950-1962); Lawrence Hughes (former owner, 1962-1983); Roy and Mary Norton (former owners, 1983-1985); Morton Rutherford (former owner, 1985-1991); Alice Orme Smith (landscape architect, 1968); Sylvia Erskine (landscape architect, 1991-1992); Kenneth Twombly (horticulturist, 1993-1998); Paul Janisch (gardener, 1995-1999); and Russell Janisch (landscape gardener, 2000-present).

Place:
Cricket Hill (Greenwich, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Greenwich
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This 12-acre site includes a one-half acre formal garden. Established in 1983, the garden experienced substantial alterations in 1993. Cricket Hill has sweeping meadows overlooking a reservoir to the west. Mature trees add to the park-like landscape and a well-pruned apple orchard is on the south. The swimming pool with its surrounding terrace is enclosed on two sides by brick walls, and bordered on the other two by low fieldstone walls and herbaceous beds. A circle of concave and convex stone steps leads to the meadow. Pairs of topiaried boxwoods flank openings. On the west of the house is a flagstone terrace with a formal treatment of low clipped hedging enclosing beds of evergreens and a flowering tree at each corner. This terrace is linked through a small gate to a parterre of gravel paths and boxwood-edged beds that was laid out in 1993. The parterre is a setting for sun-loving shrubs and perennials and climbing roses on tuteurs (supports). At the center a single jet fountain in a square pool is the focus for the patterns of beds and paths. It is overlooked by the conservatory. A sundial and an urn are set where they extend the long axis of the formal terraces.
Persons associated with the garden include: the McCarthy family (former owners, 1940-1978); Lee Duemler (former owner, 1979-1982); Erag A. Matthiessen (architect, 1940); Charles J. Stick (landscape architect, 1993); Cowers Taylor (landscape architects); Rosedale Nursery (nurserymen); and Shoreline Pools Company (contractors, 1984).
