Scope and Contents:
The folders include a worksheet, a garden plan, a detailed narrative description of the property and garden, a plant list, geological survey, copies of articles on Grant Wood, and photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
The gardens at Pleasant Hill were inspired by the early architecture of the area and the designs of regionalist painter, Grant Wood. The residence was constructed in 1932 to reflect the architectural history of Iowa, using original structral elements from other houses and antique furniture. On December 20, 1989, the home was designated as a National Historic Site. At the entrance to the garden, Grant Wood designed a grape arbor. Stones from a quarry near Stone City, Iowa and a grist mill stone were incorporated into garden seats. The owner chose species of flowers and trees that are either indigenous to the zone or have proven successful through the harsh Iowa winters, producing a continuous show of color in summer, spring, and fall.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: Bruce McKay (architect, designer, builder, 1932-?); Grant Wood (artist, 1933); and Mrs. E. W. Spence (landscape architect).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Nau's Green Valley (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
United States of America -- Iowa -- Linn -- Cedar Rapids
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a photocopy of an article.
General:
Located on nine acres, six of the acres are densely forested with mature hardwood trees and the remaining three acres are the footprint for the gardens. The gardens were initiated after the house was built in 1984 beginning with foundation plantings of evergreens, deciduous shrubs and herbaceous perennials. Deer predation was a serious problem and an ornamental iron fence was installed around the garden in 2005. The owners do all the work themselves and keep adding borders and garden beds, reducing the size of the lawn. There are more than one hundred varieties of conifers, 40 to 50 varieties of hosta (one 8 foot hosta was named 2004 hosta of the year by the American Hosta Association), and in total more than one thousand different cultivars in the gardens including common and rare varieties. In addition to ornamental plantings there is a small pond with a water garden, a small vegetable garden, a chicken coop and a large conservatory. Thousands of annuals are propagated in the conservatory and planted out in the spring to follow the flowering of hundreds of bulbs. The chickens provide eggs and manure that is composted and used throughout the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include) Roger Hadley (architect, 1984) .

Ortberg Gardens at Forest Hill (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
United States of America -- Iowa -- Linn -- Cedar Rapids
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles and historic photographs.
General:
The Greek Revival house had an interesting history, having been cut in half and moved from its original location to this one and one-third acre hillside lot in 1929. The gardens, lawn and trees installed by previous owners had been neglected by the time the current owners took possession in 1997. Clearing the weeds from a semi-shaded circular bed uncovered the original hosta and peony garden planted by the Armstrong family circa 1930. The owners added limestone edging and a large iron urn as a focal point, along with spring blooming daffodils, trillium, bleeding heart, blue bells, pulmonaria, and allium, which are followed by astilbe, wild ginger, hydrangea, and turtlehead (chelone) in summer. Flower beds are more casually planted with heirloom varieties of hollyhock, foxglove, feverfew, peony, iris and sweet William, mostly in shades of pink, purple and white. A boxwood hedge planted years before provided seedlings for other hedges that complement the formal style of the house. Shaped boxwood, boxwood in containers and trimmed hedges or limestone walls define garden rooms.
The sunny backyard was redesigned in 2003, adding a limestone retaining wall to divide it into two levels with a fountain on the upper level. A small part of a glass conservatory that was about to be demolished was acquired and attached to the garage, and is used in spring for starting heirloom vegetables and flowers, then used for dining in summer when the trees have leafed out and shaded the room. Winding paths connect a formal herb garden with an antique finial as its focal point, three raised vegetable beds next to the house, the greenhouse, a rose arbor at the entrance to the backyard, and sun and shade perennial and biennial garden beds. Antique containers and ornaments as well as a bench found at a flea market that may have sat outside this house nearly a century ago relate the gardens to the late Victorian style of the house.
Persons associated with the garden include Samuel G. and Anna Cooper Armstrong (former owners, 1903-1929); Anna Cooper Armstrong (former owner, 1929-1948); Frank B. and Margaret Armstrong Race (former owners, 1948-1986); Walter J. and Maureen K. Hale (former owners, 1986-1993); Robert and Joni Hilton (former owners, 1993-1997); Charles A. Dieman (1873-1937) and Ferdinand C. Fiske (1856-1930) (architects, 1903); Theodore Stark & Sons (builder, 1903); E.W. LaPlant (house mover, 1929); Mondanero Concrete (landscaping, 2003); Larry Lorenz (construction, 2008); Chalupsky Nursery (landscaping, 2002, 2014); Mitch Odell (garden assistant, 2010-2012); Stanley Wrobel (construction and garden assistant, 2013-2015).
