Topiary Garden at Old Deaf School Park (Columbus, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Franklin County -- Columbus
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, landscape plan, artist's statement, color copy of article on Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on The Ille De La Grand Jatte," magazine article, histories of Deaf School Park, topiary plant list, and a survey.
General:
The 10-acre garden began in 1989 by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. It is a recreation in sculpted shrubbery (topiary) of French artist Georges Seurat's famous oil painting "A Sunday Afternoon on The Ile De La Grand Jatte" (1884-1886) owned by the Art of Chicago, Illinois. The topiary project was conceived, designed and executed by Columbus sculptor, James T. Mason, and assisted by his wife, Elaine. Mason matches sculpture from "Taxus" shrubs with Seurat's painting of eight boats, three dogs, a monkey, and fifty-four figures (the tallest is twelve feet). Trees, ponds, paths, benches, and a gate house have been added. The last armature was set in place in 1990. The wrought iron fence around the park once surrounded The State House of the State of Ohio.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: John Allen (former owner, 1802-1809); Lyne Starling (former owner, 1809-1812); State of Ohio (former owner, 1829-1981); Columbus Recreation and Parks Department (owner); and James T. Mason (garden designer, 1888-1993).

Scope and Contents:

General:
This one-third acre garden is located in Sessions Village in Columbus, Ohio, a planned community of 29 free standing homes in the architectural style of a walled French village. Its artist-owner's passion for all things relating to the gardens of southern France inspired her to engage a landscape architect whom she primed with words and images of her personal vision and with whom she created a plan that was implemented in 2006. With "no grass" as a design mandate, a comprehensive plan was developed that could be implemented in stages beginning with the rear garden. Few changes had been made to the 1960s garden of the original owners. However, wherever possible existing trees and shrubs were saved and incorporated into the new design. Strong sight lines were created with the use of sweeping paths of brown gravel and bluestone insets. Lavender is used prolifically as an edging plant and boxwood hedges encircle prominent trees and garden features. Perimeter areas along the fence enclosure are pocketed with an abundance of shrubs, shade perennials, and colorful annuals. Masses of seasonal flowers, selected for a succession of bloom, offer the owner-artist an ever-changing palette of colors and a subject for home-based plein air painting.
Persons and firms associated with the site and garden include Mark R. Schieber (landscape architect, 2006); Architectural Gardens, Inc. (landscape architects, 2006); Preston and Julia Davis (former owners, 1962-2005); and Tibbals, Crumley and Musson (architects, 1961).
There is additional documentation of other gardens in Sessions Village. See OH230000-235000.

Columbus -- Bert's German Village Garden

Landscape designer:

Little Garden Club of Columbus  Search this
Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Bert's German Village Garden (Columbus, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Franklin County -- Columbus
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans with plant names, a copy of an article about the garden, and other information.
General:
This small garden on a 31' x 115' lot is located in historic German Village, a neighborhood first settled in 1814 by German immigrants that is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Because the footprint of the house occupies so much of the lot, there are only relatively small planting areas at the front of the house, along the south side, and at the rear. The most distinctive part of the garden's design is the diversity and number of plants, garden features, and appointments--and the cohesiveness of all these elements in such a small space. The owner's keen sense of plant placement, proportion and scale, and combinations of color and plant textures meld the garden into a harmonious whole and create a feeling of depth and space. As the owner notes, "Urban gardeners must think vertically. Because room is at a premium, you learn to use fences and walls to add more varieties of plants. . . . The real challenge is to keep a flow of color all season long and to achieve this [by mixing] annuals, hardy perennials, [and] shrubs along with house plants and tropicals." The result is an excellent model of small space gardening, comfortable outdoor rooms, and the expert use of proportion and scale.
Persons associated with the garden include Roger B. Seely (landscape designer, 1991).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and other information including a copy of a Sessions Village sales brochure from 1927.
General:
Located on ten acres, Sessions Village is divided into twenty-nine plots with freestanding homes. It is part of a huge plot of land owned by Francis Sessions who, in 1927, formed a corporation to build the village. Inspired by the French Norman village style, architect Robert Reeves, Sr. designed this self-contained community in its entirety. It is enclosed by high garden walls planted with gray beech, oaks, and elm trees that offer privacy from nearby development. Archways and shrubbery accent the gated entrance. Once inside the gated entry, stucco, half-timber, brick, stone, slate and wrought iron are used to the best possible effect. Some notable features include houses with high, pitched roofs and picturesque chimneys, diamond paned windows, walled gardens, formal courtyard entrances, and narrow paths to rear gardens and narrow streets edged with cobblestone. The community features common areas for residents including a pond and garden.
Persons associated with the site include: Duane W. Fulton, J. M. Rankin and Webb I. Vorys (developers, 1927); Robert Reeves, Sr. (architect, 1929-1937); Robert Reeves, Jr. (architect, 1937); and Carl R. Frye (landscape architect, 1928).

General:
Situated in the Sessions Village area of Columbus, this .19 acre garden (52 x 157 feet) was begun in 1988 when the current owners added specimen plantings of trees and shrubs to the existing stand of trees at the rear of the property. Underplantings of shrubs and shade-tolerant perennials and annuals surround an open oval of grass that abuts the patio area. The patio, entered from a gate off the driveway or from the rear door of the house, serves as an outdoor living room. The garden is totally enclosed by a stucco wall, the walls of adjoining buildings and a board fence. The patio--with its pool and fountain, rose garden, espaliered plants, colorful annuals and perennials, specialty trees and shrubs--offers the owners a place of quiet repose in which to enjoy their pride and joy, a fern-leaved beech, Fagus sylvatica 'Asplenifolia'.
Persons associated with the property include David Voyles (landscape designer, 1988); Robert Reeves, Jr. (architect, 1957); Richard Schmidt (nurseryman, 1989); and Jodie Montgomery Ferguson (garden designer, 1988).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
Situated in the Sessions Village area of Columbus, the house and garden on this .36 acre site were completely renovated in 1998. The house was originally constructed by a local builder in the 1950s; the renovation created a formal façade, an entry courtyard of parterres, a semi-sheltered patio living area, and a woodland garden. The layout of the lot and the separation of the various areas make this unique combination of styles work. The tiered courtyard is a study in symmetry with a balanced placement of elements, boxwood parterres, and well-placed verticals of the trees. A narrow side path is typical of the Sessions Village neighborhood and serves as a transition area between the formal entry and the next part of the garden. Some of the same plant material is used in this area as in the formal entry, but in an informal style, while the gate entirely closes off the view. The informal area features a family outdoor living/entertaining space with seating and mixed plantings adjacent to the house. It opens to an expanse of lawn, trees, and naturalized plantings. Spring is the peak season for this section of the garden with a proliferation of bluebells, an array of wild flowers,tulips, and a lawn sprinkled with spring beauties.
Persons associated with the property include John G. Reiner (landscape architect, nurseryman,1998); William J. Riat (architect, 1998); Webster L. Davis (former owner, 1956-1969); and Dorleskia M. Davis (former owner, 1968-1997).

General:
Situated in the Sessions Village area of Columbus, this .33 acre garden reflects the ideas of its current owners. With a goal of wanting the home to feel as though every room is part of the garden, lines have been blurred between the inside and outside and exterior garden rooms have been created. The garden can be seen from the major living areas, while a second-story deck off one of bedrooms provides an elevated view. Pleached trees border the property lines on the east and west and the paths and the patio area are surfaced in a unifying gravel of soft tan. An open lawn contains a geometric knot garden of boxwood, edged on the south by a patterned boxwood and holly hedge. Topiary standards are used about the garden as accents, climbing roses are trained around the openings of French doors, and a tiny herb garden surrounds a jardiniere. The architectural style of the glass-topped table and wall fountain appear to have slipped out of the interior rooms. The entry courtyard of brick with flanking boxed columnar English oaks breaks with the all-green theme through the addition of a touch of colored coleus.
Persons associated with the property include Shawn Shear (landscape designer, 2000); Robert Reeves, Sr. (architect, 1956); and Thomas E. Davis, Jr. (former owner, 1956-1997).
