Schlumberger Garden (Houston, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Houston
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, articles, and an update sheet.
General:
Situated on approximately three-quarters of an acre, this property features a series of garden rooms designed by landscape architect C.C. "Pat" Fleming. When the Tudor style home was purchased by former owners in 1980 Fleming was engaged to design the graceful sequence of spaces that as of 2012 remain preserved by the present owners. The original landscape design featured a rose garden at the front of the property, situated on the edge of an azalea framed motor court, as well as a large walled garden comprised of flagstone terraces, a secret garden, a crapemyrtle allée, and a formal pool garden
True to the original design, azaleas feature prominently in the landscape, as do roses and flowering trees. Star jasmine and climbing roses continue to grow on an arbor designed by architect Edwin A. Eubanks which presides over the formal pool garden. As the landscape has aged, the present owners have allowed the garden to evolve while respectfully maintaining the spirit of Fleming's original design. The crapemyrtle have given way to better highlight a crabapple, the many azalea, which had grown quite large, have been reigned in to allow other plantings to shine. A boxwood parterre, a cutting garden, and an herb garden have been added.
An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Showers (former owners, circa 1935-1949); Mr. and Mrs. Morgan Davis (former owners, 1949-1980); Mr. and Mrs. Pierre Marcel "Pete" Schlumberger (former owners, 1980-1994); Cameron Fairchild (architect, ca. 1935); C.C. Pat Fleming (landscape architect, 1980); Edwin A. Eubanks (architect, 1984); and Nona Carmichael of Thompson+Hansen (landscape architect, ca. 1995-present).

The Andorra Garden of Mr. and Mrs. George Q. Nichols (Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania)
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:
Located on 4 acres this flower garden was originally a pig farm. Sometime after 1981, a devastating fire destroyed the house and killed surrounding vegetation. All that remained was the barn. The current owners purchased the property in 1984 and a year later eight trailer loads of loam were brought in and hand-sifted for garden beds and borders that wrap around the property and its natural granite elements. The garden includes a full sun perennial garden, a shade garden, an antique rose garden, a meadow garden, and a small orchard of miniature fruit trees. These gardens feature flowering shrubs, perennials, bulbs and self-sowing biennials that are harvested regularly during eight months of the year to provide distinctive materials for the owner's floral design business located in the barn. Second generation woodlands lay beyond the developed spaces.
Roses, hydrangeas, peonies, astilbes, lady's mantle, Solomon's seal, catmint, tulips and hosta leaves may be grown for commercial floral arrangements but the gardens are designed to enhance the setting rather than traditional cutting gardens planted in rows. Inside the farmer's stone wall along the road there is a deep border of perennials and flowering shrubs. A curving pea stone driveway is bordered by birches, pines and dogwoods under planted with shade loving perennials. A formal oval rose garden with antique varieties as well as David Austin and other hybrids is protected by a lilac hedge, with boxwood globes and an antique gate at three entrances. More flower borders line the driveway up to the house culminating in a rose covered trellis. There is an herb garden with lavender that is nearly 30 years old, and thorn less blackberries and a fruit orchard nearby that contains apple, plum, peach and pear trees planted in 1986. Another shade garden with hydrangea edging the path leads to the woodlands and a dining terrace.

A fruit orchard of apple, plum, peach and pear and thorn less blackberries was started in 1986. Another shade garden with hydrangea edging the path leads to the woodlands and a dining terrace.
A sculpture of a goat and birdbaths by Roger DiTarando are placed in the gardens. Another feature is a sculpture of Beatrice by Brizzolesi.
In 2016 a raised bed garden for vegetables, cutting flowers and herbs was designed and built on a sunny slope behind the barn. It is fenced with birch poles and patterned panels with mesh and wires to support espaliered apples and keep out predators. There is a brick and stone custom made compass rose outside the gate, brick walkways between raised beds, and a tuteur sunk in gravel.
Persons associated with the garden include Nathaniel Hildreth (former owner, before 1854); Albert J. Lucas and Grace A. Lucas (former owners until 1947); Carl and Florence Wentworth Wilson (former owners, 1947-1983); Judson Wilson (former owner, 1982-1983); Architects Development Corporation (former owner, 1983-1984); Brizzolesi (sculptor, circa 1929); Jim Velleco (architect, 1984-1985); Priscilla Randall (designed trellis); Roger DiTarando (sculptor); Pauline Runkle (garden designer, 2017- ); Ed Mota (built birch fence and compass rose, 2017).
The North Shore Garden Club facilitated the 2014 and 2019 submissions of this garden's documentation.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of sketches, plans and paintings.
General:
Located on less than 1 acres, this English-style garden evolved over the years as the creator, an artist, continually transformed and refined it. It is a strolling garden and leads the visitor from room to room. The entrance to the garden opens into the Chaise Garden, named for the two iron chaise lounges which anchor it. Passing through another gate at the far end, you come upon the Boxwood Oval. From this point you can stroll along the grass paths through the Perennial Garden or the gravel paths through the Woodland Gardens.
The Westhampton Cottage Garden is an artist's garden, created with an artist's passion and energy. In 1961, former owners William and Jacquelyn Ross moved into the house. Mrs. Ross, a painter and avid flower arranger, let the garden evolve as if it were a giant flower arrangement. When current owners purchased the house they opened up the boxwood oval in the back for space and circulation and transplanted the boxwood around the urn in the Chaise Garden. Plantings include dogwood, ferns, juniper, and oak-leaf hydrangea.
Persons associated with the garden include: Earl F. Hagan (former owner, 1935-?); William and Jacquelyn Ross (former owners, 1961-2008).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, garden and site plans (including plant lists), detailed information about the content of the slides, historical information about the house and site, and other information.
General:
This 20-acre site, including 10 acres of woodlands, was originally developed in the 1920s and is focused around its 1926 Cotswold/Tudor design house. Reflecting the desire of its original owner for quiet and privacy, the original landscape architect, Robert Ludlow Fowler, Jr., covered the house with ivy and planted apple trees, dogwoods, and linden, while allowing the landscape to be dominated by white pine, Norway spruce, cedar, hemlock, juniper and yew. A subsequent owner added a greenhouse and cottage while tearing down and/or moving several other buildings. Beginning in 1975 the current owners have transformed the gardens, replacing dying American dogwoods with a mix of new trees: weeping beech, katsuras, weeping cherry, and birches, among others. Other flowering trees and shrubs have brought color with every changing season. At least eight new gardens have been created. For example, the old Secret Garden with its well, which was an abandoned rose garden, became an azalea garden with an abundant variety of plant material. A new vegetable garden, a hosta garden, a wildflower garden, a boxwood garden, an informal New England-style garden, and a white garden are some of the special spaces that have been created. The addition of all these gardens has brought new splendor to the house while maintaining the feeling of serenity and elegance that is the site's heritage.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Delano & Aldrich (architects, 1925-26); Robert Ludlow Fowler, Jr. (landscape architect, 1926-30); Mary Jo Bridge Palmer (landscape architect, 1980); Armand Benedek (landscape architect, 1982); B. B. Stamates (landscape architect, 1988); Mary Patterson (landscape architect, 1989); Adam West (landscape architect, 1995-2000); William H. and Elizabeth Finnegan Fain (former owners, 1922-1940); and Elizabeth C. McBride (former owner, 1940-1975).
