Naumkeag (Stockbridge, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Berkshire County -- Stockbridge
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, garden plans, brochures, and photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
Naumkeag was built in 1885 for Joseph Hodges Choate by Stanford White of McKim, Mead & White fame. The initial landscape plan was carried out by Nathaniel Barrett in the 1880s. Barrett fitted the house and gardens to the steep site by creating two broad lawn terraces. Beginning in 1926, Mabel Choate, daughter of Joseph Choate, engaged landscape architect Fletcher Steele to update the gardens. The Afternoon Garden and Chinese-style garden were created. They completed the work in 1956. The resulting landscape is widely viewed to have some of the most interesting residential design elements of the 20th Century, epitomized by Steele's well-known "Blue Steps" from 1938, a series of cascading Renaissance stairs with distinctive railings and water features set against a birch-planted hillside. The gardens are continually under restoration. The Evergreen Garden from 1948 was restored beginning in 2002 (its marble steps were rebuilt and the pea gravel allee planted with new arborvitae). Restoration of the Afternoon Garden occured in 2007. The property was given to the Trustees of Reservations in 1959, was made a National Historic Landmark in 2007, and is open to the public.
Persons associated with the garden include: Joseph Hodges Choate (former owner, 1885); Mabel Choate (former owner); the Trustees of Reservations (owners, 1959-present); Stanford White (architect, 1885); Nathan Franklin Barrett (landscape architect, 1880s); Fletcher Steele (landscape architect, 1926-1956); Marian Cruger Coffin (landscape architect); and Percival Gallagher (landscape architect).

Place:
Kaiserhof (Stockbridge, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Berkshire County -- Stockbridge
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
This 19-acre site was established as an orchard in the early 1700s by the Carter family and remained a working farm until after World War II. Former owner James C. Carter built the brick Federal-style house in 1830, which was restored by the current owners, who acquired the property in the early 1980s. New landscaping was also undertaken. Stone walls, heirloom 19th-century apple trees, fields, and lawns were incorporated in the design and connect the various gardens as well as the present to the past. A variety of plantings, from tree and herbaceous peonies to smokebush, mock orange, and hydrangea grace the terrace gardens, while summer gardens feature several varieties of helianthus. The park-like setting is complemented by mature trees and additional older heirloom buildings, such as a late 18th-century blacksmith house now restored as a guest house. The overall effect highlights and enhances the natural topography, history, and beauty of the land and the surrounding Berkshire Hills.
Persons associated with the site include Helga S. Orthofer (landscape designer and photographer, late 1980s to date) and James C. Carter (former owner, 1830).

Mary's Garden (Stockbridge, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Berkshire County -- Stockbridge
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, garden plans, photocopies of illustrations by Mary Hoffman Borie, and photographs from personal archives.
General:
The New England Colonial style cottage built in 1789 by Phineas Pease, one of the original barns, and the channeled Konkapot brook from the old saw mill next door comprise the setting for Mary's Garden. Mary Hoffman Borie was a professional illustrator of plants, gardens and houses and the principle designer of this garden. When she moved to the one-acre property in the 1960s there was a perimeter planting of hemlocks with a woodlands garden. Now there are four distinct areas containing 45 flower beds with color choices that harmonize with nearby trees and shrubs: the woodland garden, the stonewall garden, the kitchen garden and the quarter moon garden. The hemlock screen around the property has smaller trees, native and cultivated shrubs, groundcovers, ferns and flowers in the understory. Other trees include apple, locust, birch and copper beech trees, and there are 107 shrubs throughout the property. Wildflowers were foraged and added to the mix years ago; now perennials are favored over annual flowers. The style of Mary's garden has become less formal, with self-sown and native plants allowed into the carefully designed flower beds.
The woodland garden was designed by the previous owner in a crescent shape that has evolved into a horseshoe shape for more sun exposure. In it there are natives including Jack-in-the-pulpit, wild cranesbill geranium, May apple and ostrich ferns, anchored by azaleas, hollies and mountain laurels and a Japanese maple. In spring the blooming season begins with ephemeral bulbs and flowering shrubs while ferns emerge, followed by peonies and perennials flowers. Annual flowers are dug in to add color and structure to this garden. The stone wall garden, sited between the house and barn features silver and blue tones with contrasting orange and yellow flowers. The quarter moon garden is an island bed featuring light green sedum, the dark purple foliage of ajuga, heuchera and hellebores. The kitchen garden beside the house has tall, scented old-fashioned flowers including phlox, iris, digitalis, nicotiana, narcissus and allium in the spring, and two trellises for clematis followed by morning glories later in the season. Also, there is a rock garden tucked under a mature grape arbor and espaliered trees against the house.
The Massachusetts Forest Health Program has recorded one of the black locust trees in Mary's Garden as the largest in the state.
Persons associated with the garden include: Phineas Pease (former owner, 1789-1836); Captain T.H. Lincoln (former owner, c. 1850); Helen Beaman Lakin (former owner and sculptor, 1957-1967); Mary Lakin Hoffman Borie (former owner and garden designer, 1967-1994); Peter Borie (former owner, 1994-2002); Cynthia Parson (garden designer, 1995 - present).
