General:
Designed and built as a rental property on a barrier island in the mid-1960s, then converted to condominiums in 1976, the three-story horseshoe-shaped buildings had minimalist landscaping, just palm trees and St. Augustine grass. Later, one of the condominium owners with a long association with the Garden Club of America developed landscaping designs that were approved by the board of directors of the condominium association. The property is located between the Gulf of Mexico and a lagoon with differing exposures to wind, sunlight, salt spray and hurricanes within its 7.5 acres. The plant selections are tropical with low maintenance requirements and low water usage.
A deep sea-grape hedge next to the beach helps control flooding from storm surges and is heavily pruned twice each year to keep it from blocking views of the sea. Color was added to the original landscape as gardenias, hibiscus, oleander, geraniums, begonias, croton, birds of paradise and flowering trees including magnolias were planted. Individual owners of ground level condominiums have added patios with foundation plantings and the central carport has been spruced up with plantings between the pods. Beds under the palm trees at the entrance to the condominium, outside the office and recreation building, outside the maintenance building and marina along the lagoon, and along the walkways that lead to the swimming pool and the Gulf have added color with tropical ground covers and shrubs.
Persons associated with the garden include Arvida Corporation (land owners, 1965); Carl A. Vollmer and Earl J. Draeger (architects, 1966); Barbara Hansen (garden designer, 1980- ).

Scope and Contents:

General:
Alice and Ostrom Enders called their 57-acre farm 'Northington' in recognition of an historic name of its Connecticut location. The couple commissioned Alice's brothers, Charles Hooker Talcott and Seth Talcott of Talcott and Talcott, to build their house in the latest International Style that had emerged from Europe. Cheviot sheep were raised on the farm and hay was grown in the surrounding fields, and near the barn there was a large vegetable garden with a cutting garden of flowers. In the 1950s a sunken 120-square-foot greenhouse was built onto the shed in which Mrs. Enders raised rare geraniums and other flowers. Three ponds were dug to attract wildfowl which were pinioned and protected by electric fences. Waterfowl were a particular interest of Mr. Enders who raised breeding pairs and incubated eggs in the basement starting in the mid-1950s. Several species were given to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. and the Bronx Zoo in New York. Along with Smithsonian Secretary S. Dillon Ripley, Mr. Enders bred Nene geese and after several years' efforts sent the hatchlings to Hawaii. In the 1970's a Duck House was built so the waterfowl could winter on the Connecticut property.
The original house was demolished circa 1998 and another house was built in its place. The greenhouse and a mature white oak tree still survive. The current owner has some of the garden and farm tools used by the Enders on display in her home and is interested in restoring the gardens. Ornamental trees have been planted recently.
Ostrom Enders added a three-room library to the original structure to house his collection of 6,000 ornithological and natural history books. The collection was donated to the Watkinson Library at Trinity College in 1982.
Persons associated with the garden include: Ostrom Enders and Alice Dudley Talcott Enders (former owners, 1931-1994); Bernard and Bonnie Kershner (former owners from 1996); Charles Hooker Talcott and Seth Talcott (architects, 1932-1933); William Spivey (caretaker); John Binders (caretaker); Mr. Pang (caretaker); Ray Shookus (caretaker).

General:
Natural elevations and rock outcroppings, a colonial style house with a peanut-shaped swimming pool, a few azaleas and rhododendrons, woodlands and an old stone wall described this more than two acre property when it was purchased in 1975. Since then the house has been modified and expanded, a waterfall and koi pond surrounded by alpine and perennial borders was built into the rocky outcroppings, and rose and perennial gardens were planted in the early years of ownership and have matured and naturalized into their settings. Plant selections include floribunda, hybrid tea and David Austin roses, bulbs, perennials and annuals, and flowering shrubs and trees that provide continuous bloom from spring through autumn. The colors pink, blue, and purple are favored in the plant selections. Distinct garden areas start at the front of the house with foundation hollies, rhododendrons, boxwoods, a Japanese split leaf maple, a thirty foot tall Japanese stewartia, and a pruned crab apple. A hedge of roses spills down to the swimming pool garden which has a flagstone terrace surrounded by roses, perennials, and annuals that include geraniums, foxgloves, cleomes, and Casa Blanca lilies.
Three kousa dogwoods anchor the pool garden and one of them leads to a semi-formal rose garden that has become less structured over time with perennials planted among the roses. An antique J.W. Fiske cast iron urn set on a brick platform is planted with annuals in shades of pink, purple, and white. The rose garden is backed by a hedge of viburnum, boxwood, quince, and rose of Sharon which transitions to an alpine garden of dwarf evergreens, junipers, spruce, foxglove, and columbine with dwarf split leaf maples on either side of the waterfall to the koi pond. Natural granite steps ascend to the flagstone and brick terrace behind the house. Another hedge enclosed garden with an antique gate was intended for vegetables but became a cutting garden that includes tomatoes and herbs. In the 1990's brambles at the edge of the woodlands were gradually removed to create a path that splits and goes uphill to the gazebo and downhill to the small pond on the property. In 2000, deer fencing was installed around the entire perimeter.
Persons associated with the garden include: Dan Taylor (landscape designer, 1978-1979); Sam Bridge Nurseries (plant material, 1995- ); Beth Henry (sea lion sculptor, 1979).

General:
This is a three-quarter acre urban garden growing since 1987 around a 1926 Tudor-style house that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an Historic District property. The densely-planted gardens are described as an informal museum of perennials, native plants, shrubs and trees since the owners have created more gardens and kept adding plant materials for almost thirty years. The first foundation garden planted in front of the house included juniper, hollies, and rhododendrons, later filled in with dozens of perennials and more shrubs including azaleas, day lilies, hydrangea, iris, peonies, allium, hosta, mountain laurel, English ivy, geraniums and rhubarb. Now in front of the house there are perennial borders all the way to the street, alongside the driveway and in island beds around trees. In the first years of ownership a bluestone patio was built off the sun room, with a patio garden eventually planted with weigela, tree peony, ferns, ladies mantle, ginger and more. A long perennial border that contained only azaleas and a crabapple was amended with peonies, lilies, bachelor buttons, lady's mantle, anemone, coreopsis and more.
When two diseased hemlocks near the patio had to be removed a sunny garden area opened up that was planted with kousa dogwood, hydrangea, rhododendron and new varieties of hosta. A shaded woodland garden border was created for May apple, wood poppy, astilbe, ginger, lily-of-the-valley, Solomon's seal, blood root and a burr oak. Two raised beds for vegetables were added in the sunny lawn, growing tomatoes, peas, beans, squash, lettuce, carrots and basil.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles Blake (former owner, 1926-1946); Louise Garvin (former owner, 1946-1975); Thomas Valashinas (former owner, 1975-1978); Michael Budlong (former owner, 1978-1986); Russell F.

General:
Known as the South Garden, the formal garden at Breeze Hill Farm covers about two-thirds of an acre of the four and one half acres estate that also includes forty acres of agricultural land. The house was built in the 1800s, and the formal garden next to it was conceived after the owners found the remains of an old pergola that had blown down in a hurricane. The pergola was rebuilt and planted with wisteria, clematis and lilac. The formal garden is rectangular with a large fountain set within a sixty-foot circular perimeter of Belgian block. One axis goes from the house through the fountain directly to the pergola and is bisected by another axis that leads to the bordering hedges of privet and rugosa rose with an herb garden and propagating greenhouse beyond; past the greenhouse is an old low stone wall shaded by mature trees. A wildflower meadow is being developed, supplemented with seedlings grown in the greenhouse.
The four quadrants within the fountain ring each contain a weeping cherry tree and egg-shaped boxwood along the walkways. The foundation planting at the house includes spring bulbs, hosta, peony and phlox. The greenhouse is the winter home for olive trees planted in containers and an heirloom geranium from the region that is propagated through cuttings. Vegetables and herbs are grown from seed and raised organically on the property for the owners and their dogs.
This property was originally documented as part of a 1992 donation to the Archives of American Gardens. At that time it was listed as the Wood Garden. An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012.
Images CT039004 and CT039025 are variations of the same photographic image, created circa 1930; image CT039024 is of the same vantage point in 2011.

Wright Garden, formerly known as.
General:
Located on 1.7 acres, this historic property with its Greek Revival style house was built for John and Harriet Ryder in 1842-1845. The Deering family, local farmers added a barn and several outbuildings. In 1919, Richardson Wright, founder and editor of 'House and Garden' magazine began to chronicle the house and garden. In Wright's time, the property included 7 acres. Wright wrote extensively about the garden which was comprised at that time of an orchard, arbor with concord grapes, specimen magnolias, elms and tree lilacs, rock gardens as well as a large peony and iris garden. Among other plantings included roses, astilbe, clematis, columbine, delphinium, aster, poppies, marigolds, salvia, hyacinth, narcissus and tulips for color.
The gardens were revitalized by the current owner who renovated the hardscape and restored some of the older gardens. A small gardener's cottage with a bank of daylilies is located at the entrance of the property including the original hitching post. Also at the front of the property is a garden designed by the owner in 2005 which is planted with hollies, sedum, lamb's ears, black-eyed susan, lavender, nepeta, siberian iris, perovskia, oregano, chives, artemesia and hydrangea 'Pee Gee.' To the right of the driveway is a a hedge of boxwood.
The rear garden includes a star magnolia, one of the largest specimens in Connecticut, a shade garden planted with sweet woodruff, ajuga, myosotis forget-me-nots, goat's beard, hosta, astilbe, geranium, lady's mantle, primroses, lamium, and narcissus. A long back of Euonymus flank the stone retaining wall. There is a large blue stone patio planted with creeping thyme at the back of the house added in 2003. The patio is bordered on one side by sweeps of miscanthus, butterfly bush, sedum, caryopteris and echinacea. The other side of the patio is a rock wall garden with English ivy and clematis paniculata that cascades over the walls. A stand of bamboo dates to the time of Richardson Wright who brought it back from China and hardened it in his greenhouse for five years before planting. It was not invasive until recently with the warmer climate.
Other garden features include a stone stairway dating from Wright's ownership, a swimming pool, radiating brick walkways, a walled garden, a pool side gazebo, a cedar greenhouse and pergola with climbing clematis paniculata and morning glory.
Persons associated with the garden include John and Harriet Ryder (former owner, 1842-1845); Richardson and Agnes Wright (former owner, 1919-1950); Allison Slaughter (landscape architect, 2013); "The Swede" (gardener, 1919-1950).

Fraser Garden, formerly known as.
General:
The current owners of the 1911 English style stone manor house and country place era gardens designed by Warren Manning have restored both since taking ownership of the 3.6-acre property in 2004. Their goals were to honor the original design, preserve the remaining trees and shrubs, and sympathetically incorporate elements for contemporary concerns such as deer fencing. The house and original 31 acres were on a hillside overlooking the surrounding countryside so the gardens were terraced, eventually melding into woodlands. The existing garden rooms have been unified with the consistent use of boxwood hedges for structure and formality combined with several varieties of hydrangea for softer textures, chosen for successive blooming times. The owners have preserved the climbing hydrangea growing on the stone pergola of the sunken terrace next to the house, as well as very old wisteria on a low stone wall with a covered arch on the far side of a flat acre farther downhill that was used as a polo field by previous owners. The garden rooms are planted with shrubs and perennials that are historically appropriate, and annuals for additional color. More than 30 containers placed around the property are replanted three or four times during the growing season from April to October.
Raised beds near the kitchen, and inside the deer fencing, contain vegetables, herbs and berries. The front garden, which is not fenced, includes peony, lilac, iris, cleome, daffodils, alyssum, salvia, and St. John's wort. Low growing blue juniper grows over the top of a wall made from boulders to soften the size of the rocks. In the garden rooms there are roses, dahlia, astilbe, cleome, allium, geranium, hellebores, hosta, butterfly bush, holly and yew. A row of arborvitae seen from the south terrace disguises the deer fence as well as screens the neighboring house. There is a koi pond in the sunken garden planted with floating hyacinth and lotus. The apples from espaliered trees on a nearby stone wall are shared with squirrels and chipmunks. Stately old trees on the property include copper beech, dogwood, oak, crabapple, birch, and weeping cherry; newer tree plantings include apple, pear, peach, shad, cherry, dogwood, red and sugar maples, and more than 60 evergreens.
Persons associated with the garden include: Arthur C. and Rose McLane Fraser (former owners, circa 1909-1941); Joseph M. and Nora Shapiro (former owners, 1941-1952); Paul D. and Elizabeth Arnold (former owners, 1952-1959); Tuccio Development Inc./Jerry Tuccio (former owner, 1959-1999); John R. Milo and Juliet D. Sitaram-Milo (former owners, 1999-2004); Grosvenor Atterbury (1869-1956) and John A. Tompkins (architects, circa 1909-1912); Warren H. Manning (1860-1938) (landscape architect, 1919-1913); Valerie R. Becker (landscape designer and gardener, 2013- ).
In 1927 the Garden Clubs of America held their annual meeting in Ridgefield and visiting delegates toured this garden. It was described as Old English on successive levels with delightful vistas and as perfectly fitting into its surroundings as shrubbery blended into forests.

The Gardens of John and Ellen Levinson (Southport, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Southport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, planting plans, and a photocopy of an article.
General:
The Gardens of John & Ellen Levinson include old-fashioned plantings that surround a recently installed pool and pool house, which has a stone fac╠žade and wooden pergola that complement the 1830 Federal style house. Those plantings include shrub roses Carefree Beauty and Maitland for continuous bloom, butterfly bush, peonies, geraniums, hydrangeas, honeysuckle and trumpet vines on the pergola, with lower level plantings of lady's mantle, catmint and lamb's ears. The emphasis here is to have color during the summer months, June to September, when the family's entertaining and recreation center on the swimming pool. Alongside in the formal boxwood garden there are container gardens of annuals planted in antique urns, topiaries, azaleas, and two large standard lilacs.
A landscaped walk along a tidal marsh on the nearly two-acre property is planted with shrubs and indigenous seaside plants that provide food and shelter for visiting wildlife. Four casual seating areas for people were designed for viewing the tides as well as the birds. This area has colorful foliage and texture for year-round interest, including 100-year-old Sycamore trees at either end of the marsh walk, a wild cherry tree that grows horizontally over the marsh, hollies, cypress, laurels, inkberries, and red twigged dogwoods, and witch hazel and hellebores for late winter blooms. In spring white bleeding heart, primroses, tiarella and other flowers bloom under flowering lilacs, viburnum and crab apple trees, followed by daphnes, irises and geraniums. Summer flowering shrubs include roses and lace cap, oak leaf, paniculata and endless summer hydrangeas, with daylilies, lady's mantle and brunnera blooming in the understory. Next astilbes, Japanese anemones and hostas bloom. Various ferns provide texture to this garden through three seasons.
Other gardens include a border of flowering shrubs, cypress and groundcover along the lengthy driveway, foundation plantings of trees, shrubs and daylilies around the house, an herb garden near the terrace and trough gardens planted with flowering and foliage annuals. An old fishing shed on the property was moved to one side and is used for potting and storing tools, with cherry laurel and astilbe planted nearby. The extensive plantings of hydrangea include a climbing hydrangea in the trees.
