Camellia Hedges (Atherton, California)
United States of America -- California -- San Mateo County -- Atherton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and copies of articles.
General:
Owned by two successive generations, Camellia Hedges is a garden for all seasons. Designed in the tradition of an English plantsman's garden, it incorporates formal elements into a rich tapestry of plant collections including camellias, cherries, magnolias, spring bulbs, roses, hydrangeas, clematis, rhododendrons, and numerous perennials. The garden includes what is considered to be the largest private garden collection of noteworthy camellias in northern California, if not on the west coast.
Though the garden was already established in 1960 when purchased by the first generation of the family that presently owns it, it underwent an extensive redesign in 1995 to transform it into the English style that presently presides.
The home was originally built in 1938 and the original garden included extensive plantings of camellias as well as hydrangeas, boxwood hedges and oaks, including a 400 year-old coastal live oak under which sat a Japanese mound featuring a waterfall, pool and bridge. With the loss of the live oak in 1995, the back garden was redesigned, preserving the perimeter hedges and a selection of the established trees while incorporating the English garden design, including a kitchen and cutting garden featuring raised beds and thuja hedges, a fountain terrace, a Chinese garden room, and an expansive serpentine brick border. The redesign of the front garden maintained by many of the original plantings and incorporated camellia, azalea, hydrangea and boxwood transferred from the original back garden. The front garden includes a woodland garden room, as well as a formal garden room preserved from the original landscape design, featuring large flower beds framed by boxwood hedges.
Persons associated with the garden include: the Savage family (former owners, 1938-date unknown), the McLean family (former owners); Benjamin Swig (former owner, date unknown-1960); Kathryn L. and Cullen W. Coates (former owners, 1960-1984); Leo Sharp (architect, 1938); Sam Spinelli (gardener, 1960-1965); Thomas Church (landscape architect, ca. 1970-1980); Chris Christopherson (architect, 1984); Jack Stafford (landscape architect, 1984); Myra Brocchini (architect, 1996); Jonathan Plant (landscape architect, horticulturist, 1996); and Ben Gill (gardener, 1965- ).

General:
Years ago there was a cherimoya orchard on the sloping hillside of this three-acre property, covered with woodchips when the current owners installed formal rose, rock and woodland gardens, beginning in 2006. Tall eucalyptus trees for shade and a massive Monterey cypress that was a focal point, as well as an antique stone fountain, were found on the property. Banks of landscape roses including a rose hedge bordering a new swimming pool were integrated with the existing cypress hedge, oaks, olives and arbutus, and sweeping lawns on the upper level of the property. Additional hedges, mature specimen trees, citrus trees and bulbs were planted, and dry stone walls dotted with shaped privet divide a slope into terraces. The old hillside orchard was transformed with a man-made stream that tumbles over rocks with meandering gravel and stone paths that lead downhill to a labyrinth of stone and silver carpet groundcover. There are David Austin shrub roses and large swaths of landscape roses throughout the property with occasional benches for sitting and enjoying the views of gardens, ocean and mountains.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Selby Sullivan (former owners, 2002-2006); Don Nulty (architect, 2002-2005); Dan Bifano (master rosarian, 2005-present); Bruce Garcia (stream installation, 2006); Jim Melnik (landscape designer, 2006-2007); Ernesto Flores (head gardener and garden contractor, 2006-present).

General:
Originally one acre this property was subdivided down to one-half acre by a previous owner, leaving the Georgian style house without a garden. Landscape architect Thomas D. Church designed a new garden behind the house that features a trefoil shaped swimming pool bordered by trees and a privacy hedge, next to a strip of lawn and woodlands garden. Church designed hardscape including masonry walls, gates, walkways and a brick surround for the pool that includes four planters. Trees in the back and side yards include coast Live oak, stone pine, maytens, coast redwood, and flowering cherries. The front and driveway gardens were designed by landscape architect Walter Guthrie, with the strong horizontal lines of boxwood hedges around the lawn and seasonal color from flowering cherries and pistache trees.
Persons associated with the garden include Dr. and Mrs. Walter Chidester (former owners, 1917); Mr. and Mrs. Richard Parina (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Porter Sesnon (former owners, -1974); Thomas Dolliver Church (landscape architect, 1975-1977); Walter Guthrie (1932-2006) (landscape architect, 1977-1978); Claud and Cali McCroskey (horticulturists, 1993-2013); William C.
