Place:
Dunklin Garden 1955-1987 (Pine Bluff, Arkansas)
United States of America -- Arkansas -- Jefferson County -- Pine Bluff
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plan, oral history sheet, narrative description, and plant list.
General:
The house and gardens were inspired by a house called "Green Leaves" in Mississippi that was built around a large oak tree. The plans for this garden involved a glass house wrapped around the largest of three oak trees on the property. The plan featured a large flagstone terrace with an "S" curved seating wall built around the largest oak and an open lawn for the children to play in. The plan also provided for privacy by the planting of a deep "woodsy" border along the property line to the east. Plantings of oaks, live oaks, pines, and dogwoods over camellias and azleas, set in deep beds bordered by mondo grass, were installed. Holly hedges marked the property lines east and north. Access to the side yard from the back garden was through a gate set in a brick wall that connected the house to the property line to the east. Another huge oak gave shade to the west front of the house. A grove of river birches and naturalized daffodils was planted close to the south side of the house. Another holly hedge made an enclosed area around the west library window. Circa 1960, the owners increased the depth of the center tree and shrub border about 20 feet and added more azaleas and dogwood trees. Owners after 1987 have not maintained the garden according to its original plan. Most of the trees are now gone.
Persons associated with the property include: J. Duke Moody (landscape architect, 1955); Louis M. Dunklin (architect, 1955).

Scope and Contents:
12 digital images (2014, 2017) and 1 file folder.
General:
The mock Tudor house was built by the owners of this small urban property in 1993 and the gardens include favorite plants that are mostly gray, pink, mauve or purple, an award-winning collection of cactus and succulents, and accessories from parents' gardens. The front garden has dwarf artemesia, lantana, dusty miller, crepe myrtle, pond cypress, holly and hawthorn with salvia and petunias adding more color. There is a lush curved border near the street that screens the house, planted with cypress, firebush, spirea, salvia and deep purple wandering Jew. Stepping stones lead to the back garden which features a Roman pool that is shallow at both ends. Flat Austin stone forms a patio at one end of the pool with a raised stone bed with knock-out roses along one side. There are many planted containers of cactus and bougainvillea, shaded beds with annual begonia, Lenten rose, azalea, ferns and hydrangeas, and a sunny wall with climbing silverthorn and cactus along the other side or the pool. Pots of succulents and cactus fill the back porch.

General:
A Japanese-style house and garden were built on this one and one-half acre property by a previous owner circa 1960, with the assistance of landscape architect William P. Hager, who unified three adjoining lots. The current owners added an extensive collection of bonsai and a bonsai house for winter storage, a rose garden in raised brick beds, and numerous decorative features from Japan, including a sake table and stools. Bonsai master and landscape designer Ben Oki designed a rock garden at the entrance to the house, placed enormous boulders moved from the owners' previous property, and also pruned and reshaped full-sized trees to complement the Japanese design. Noting that traditional Japanese gardens are comprised of water, greenery and rocks, the owner built her rose garden in a separate area beyond the swimming pool.
The property also has a hexagonal-shaped teahouse with a pagoda roof, a water garden and koi pond, a terraced garden with a reflecting pool, a moss garden, a swimming pool and pool house, and greenhouses for raising orchids and tropical ornamental plants. The bonsai house maintains the collection of at least 200 plants during the winter at 40 degrees. All the structures, including the house, pool house and carport, have Japanese design elements, such as shoji screens.
Following Japanese tradition hard surfaces, such as the stone shrine and paved walkways, are softened by surrounding plantings of ferns and trees, including Japanese maple and weeping varieties. Bonsai trees and shrubs are placed around the property and on tall stumps left from trees that were removed. Garden sculpture from Japan and a stone shrine are other features.
Materials documenting this garden in 1972 were submitted to the Archives of American Gardens as part of the Hollerith Family slide collection. It was also documented in 1987 and included as part of a 1992 donation to the Archives of American Gardens from the Garden Club of America. An additional submission of garden documentation was provided in 2009, as the Bonny and David Martin Garden.
Persons associated with the garden include William P. Hager (landscape architect, 1960s?); Duke Moody (landscape architect); EAML Architects? (greenhouse architect); David McGehee (architect, 1968-1969); Ben Oki (Bonsai master and garden designer, 2003-2009) and Dabney Turley (former owner, 1998-2003).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and family letters.
General:
Irwin Zanone (b.2/14/1942-d.7/23/2008) was the primary designer and gardener of this 2.5 acre property. Zanone worked with others to create an orderly but relaxing environment with free-form curving beds for ornamental plants, a shaded curving walkway around the main garden areas with neatly planted beds alongside, and rectangular beds for the kitchen garden that included peonies, dill and asparagus planted in rows. With a family background in farming in the delta region, Zanone planted diverse perennials, shrubs, trees and vines and installed sculptures by Roy Tamboli and Larry Young. The brick hardscape stairs and walls at the entrance to the woodland garden are in geometric shapes, the swimming pool in a clearing is an organic form, and the garden house is a symmetrical design. An area for outdoor entertaining is approached via a shady walk through the woodland garden, and the kitchen garden and compost heap are located at the rear of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Robert McCallum (former owners, circa 1950-1979); Irwin Zanone (garden designer and gardener, 1982-2008); Jeanne Leatherman (garden designer and gardener, 1982-1987); Tom Pellett (garden designer, 1982-present); Roy Tamboli (sculptor, 1995); Larry Young (sculptor, 2008); and Samuel Earl Abraham (gardener, 1979-present).

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Coke Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folders include garden plan, narrative description, copies of photographs, oral history sheet, copies of articles, and work sheet.
General:
Featured in this garden: leaded conservatory, mosaic garden, perennial borders, parterres, gazebo, rose gardens, woodland garden, and white garden. What began with the design with Carl Neels was a series of garden rooms. The first room consisted of a rockerty, then another larger rockery with a pool and small waterfall, so that the sound of water could be a feature of the garden. Next came a potager with parterre and surrounding hedge. A cutting garden is at the right of a gazebo with "Flora," and an annual garden with box parterres is at the right, making a short vista to the gazebo. There are four wooden tuteurs in the four corners of the boxwood parterres. The owners call this garden "The Victorian Garden". A bronze stature of three life-sized putti holding up an urn is in the center of this area. The "room" next to the vegetable garden is a children's garden. A bordered path leads to a playhouse. The White Garden, inspired by Sissingurst, includes brick wall with niches.
Persons associated with the property include: Will Lang (architect, 1946?); Roberto Gonzalez (gardener, 1986); and Carl Neels (landscape architect, 1991);.
