Place:
Vollum Garden (Portland, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Multnomah County -- Portland
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and two narrative descriptions of the garden and its sculpture, one of them by the owner. The garden is noted for its sensitive design, which integrates rich plantings, water features, and sculpture into the natural setting, while reflecting the owner's love of family (many plants were contributed by family members), dogs, and the outdoor world.
General:
Originally designed by landscape architect Lawrence Underhill in the 1950s, this is a true four-season garden. The perimeter of the garden is outlined by Douglas fir, red cedar, and Pinus contorta, while Magnolia macrophyllum, dwarf 'Ever Red' Japanese lace leaf maples, enkianthus, and Viburnum davidii fill the interior. Running water and a gentle pond attract birds and frogs, while the owner's collection of sculpture enhances the garden's design and plantings. Rhododendron, tulips, iris, lilies of the valley, peonies, roses, and poppies add color and fragrance in season, as do the Japanese maples and other flowering trees and shrubs. Groundcover plants such as Pachysandra terminalis provide a green carpet throughout.
The garden received the Oregon Gardeners' Association of Nurserymen first place award for landscape, and, in 1976-1977, the American Institute of Landscape Architects' first place award.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Lawrence Underhill (landscape architect, 1955 to date); Riemers and Jollivet (contractors); and Priscilla Senior (head gardener).

Place:
The Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson Jr. Garden (Nashville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Davidson -- Nashville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The garden and residence of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson represents one of the first "Country Place Era" gardens in Nashville. The Neoclassical home, designed by architects A. Christian Asmus and Richard R. Clark, was built in 1929 by F.J. McCarthy and his wife Mary Byrd McCarthy. When the current owners assumed ownership of the property in 1987, the garden areas near the house were primarily lawns surrounded by towering boxwood hedges, formal and static in design. With the desire to allow more light into the Neoclassical style house as well as to create terraces to accommodate an eight foot change in elevation and a garden room for a swimming pool, the owners turned to their sons-in-law, landscape architect Ben Page (ASLA) and architect Stephen P. Rick (AIA) to renovate the property. The four garden rooms that were designed are arranged laterally alongside and below the house with surrounding high walls and interior low walls. A pre-existing 50-foot antique wrought iron fence and a pergola built on massive piers were incorporated into the design and separate the garden rooms from the natural garden that comprises the rest of the property. The first room is a large terrace that can be tented for special events, with steps down to a more intimate sunken terrace for family use, followed by more steps to a formal parterre rose garden with a pool and fountain in the middle and pear trees espaliered against one wall, and lastly a landscaped pool and new pool house converted from a three car garage with cutting and vegetable gardens nearby. A door in the garden wall closes off the swimming area when it is out of season.
This garden features plant material and hardscape with provenance, starting with the Seven Sisters climbing roses that were transplanted from another family property in the 1930s. Peonies planted by the current owner's mother still thrive below the pool house and border the cutting and vegetable gardens. The antique wrought iron fence was salvaged from another Nashville property and bricks used for the walks once comprised East Nashville sidewalks laid in the late 1800s. A Charlie Hunt sculpture "Dove of Peace" was carved from a foundation stone salvaged from an East Nashville church, Saint Ann's Episcopal (1882-1998). Native limestone and Tennessee Crab Orchard stone are local materials used for the walls and terraces.
In early spring a row of Yoshino cherry trees blooms along one side of a brick walkway just inside the high limestone wall with tulips blooming on the other side. Pansies and tulips surround the fountain in the rose garden for early color. In summer Annabelle hydrangeas border the swimming pool, and perennial flower beds come into bloom.
The gardens on the estate provide ample opportunities for a wide variety of social, civic and charitable events. One such event was the 1993 Swan Ball Patron's Party for the benefit of Cheekwood Botanical Barden and Museum of Art. The current owner has also hosted a series of literary salons to benefit the Nashville Public Library. Numerous local non-profits have benefited from fundraisers and garden tours hosted at the estate.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. F.J. and Mary Byrd McCarthy (former owners, 1929-1931); Mr. Edwin Wilson Craig and Elizabeth Wade Craig (former owners, 1931-1987); Christian A. Asmus and Richard R Clark (architects, 1929-1939); Ben Page, ASLA (landscape architect, 1988-1990); Stephen P. Rick (architect, 1988-1990); William Ralston (sculptor); Charlie Hunt (sculptor); Pink Ray (groundskeeper, 1931-1958); Mark Owen (groundskeeper, 1948-1971); Roy Goddard (groundskeeper, 1972-1981); Malcolm Campbell (grounds manager, 1981-1990); Norman David Pugh (grounds manager, 1990-present); Michele Webber (gardener, 2010-present).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and historical information.
General:
The subtropical gardens were designed to provide splashes of color with low maintenance and minimal water usage. The Mediterranean revival style house was built circa 1925-27 on 16 acres. It was a private home that sold in 1957 at a below market price provided that the purchasers formed a private club and did not tear down the David Adler mansion or subdivide the grounds. The original main entrance was a long straight driveway under an allée of calamondin orange trees intended to perfume the air in winter when the owners were in residence. Another private entrance at the end of a winding drive, shaded by royal palms and West Indies mahogany trees, was turned into the club's main entrance. Historic Live Oak trees, Hong Kong orchid, jacaranda, royal Poinciana, mango, slash pine and various palms are found around the mansion and throughout the property. Four flower beds around the central fountain in the courtyard contain foxtail palms, bromeliads and various succulents. Wax begonias are featured in containers and combined with juniper in a large bed that surrounds an antique urn. Two enormous staghorn ferns hang on a bottlebrush tree. Black mangrove hedges, pruned with permission, line the banks of the lagoon with an island of unclipped mangroves and flowering trees.
Although there have been additions to the mansion, including dining rooms and a commercial kitchen, and the interior has been completely redesigned, The Field Club was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 5, 1986.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Field (former owners, 1924-1957); David Adler (architect, circa 1925); and Irene Page (landscape designer, 2003- ).

South Mulberry Plantation (Moncks Corner, South Carolina)
United States of America -- South Carolina -- Berkeley County -- Moncks Corner
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and other information.
General:
Located on nine hundred and one acres, South Mulberry Plantation was established in 1809 and created out of the larger Mulberry Plantation when Philip S. Broughton inherited the tract from his father. Broughton's son-in-law and botanist Dr.Sanford W. Barker, constructed the house on South Mulberry Plantation around 1835 and probably laid out the formal garden west of the house which remains to this day. The garden has borders of boxwood and pittosporum growing along the original pierced brick wall that edges the entire garden area. A path leading through the center of the garden is flanked by semicircular areas of flowering plants that mimic those found in the original garden. A reflecting pool is at one end accompanied by a bench and potted palms. A sweet potato vine climbs an arbor outside the garden wall.
The house retains much of its original interior fabric. Side additions were added before the Civil War and a rear wing was added at the turn of the century by a duck hunting club. Other buildings on the property include: a guest house, ice house, chicken coop, barns and an old slave cabin turned art studio. A pecan grove, pastures, woodlands, fields, pond and lagoon are also part of the plantation landscape. Fallen into disrepair by the 1980's, the property was once more reunited with its parent Mulberry and has been carefully restored and furnished by the current owners.
Persons associated with the property include: Philip S. Broughton (former owner, 1809-1835), Dr. Sanford W. Barker (former owner, 1835-1915), Clarence Chapman (former owner, 1915-1987).
