Place:
Skeeter Hill (Knoxville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Knox County -- Knoxville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, detailed information about the garden's plants, photocopies of articles about the garden, background details from and about the owners, and additional information.
General:
The woodland setting with tall trees and naturalized plantings of daffodils preceded the gray shingle house built in 1957 on the property known as Skeeter Hill. The 100 by 200 foot garden features native plants, including bloodroot, trout lilies, Jack-in-the pulpit, trillium, wood poppies, and maidenhair, cinnamon and sensitive ferns.The owners designed and built winding brick paths and terraces, paths laid with stepping stones, a stone pond, and a French country style potting shed in their walled cottage garden. The three notched gates also were designed by the owners, as was a three-foot diameter copper birdbath fitted to the stump of a fallen oak tree.
The garden is a habitat for birds, with native shrubs and trees providing food and housing, along with birdhouses and birdbaths. Mature shrubs and trees cast shade, so flowering plants such as Casa Blanca lilies, camellias, and hellebores are in shades of white. Azaleas add color in the spring. Many dogwood trees on the property have died from anthracnose.
French country style mixes with more formal, brick-walled planted beds in this garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Emma Rice (former owner of land, 1926-1945); Mr. and Mrs. Edward S. Albers (former owners, 1946-1956); Ernest Newton (brick and stone work designer, 1957-1970); Margaret Newton (garden designer and horticulturist, 1957-present).

Place:
Bowlin Price Lewis Garden (Memphis, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Shelby County -- Memphis
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
This southern garden of approximately one acre has evolved through three generations of one family. Its current form began to take shape in the late 1980s with the construction of a conservatory off the living room of the home, which resulted in the garden becoming the focal point of the house. The same architect, Lewis A. Graeber, III, then designed a pool, walks, and renovations to the guest cottage. Although a few old trees and hollies were saved, a new garden plan took shape to reflect one of the owner's fascination with the elements of form, texture, line, and space. The result was a design intended to contrast stark, linear branches against evergreen geometric forms for winter interest. Sculptural silhouettes of styrax trees juxtaposed with mounded boxwoods give the garden a sense of boldness and purpose, a contrast even more dramatic in winter. The trees are arranged to form a tunnel that draws the eye to a fountain. Just beyond the fountain is a lush layering of evergreens that entices the viewer to slow down and experience the peacefulness of the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Lewis A. Graeber, III (architect, 1988-1998); Jimmy Graham (designer, 1987 to date); Jerry Attaway (horticulturist, 1999 to date); and Thomas Woodward (sculptor, 2000).

Afterglow Farm (Port Washington, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Ozaukee County -- Port Washington
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, historical pictures and information regarding previous owners, historical timeline of property, planting lists, planting plans, and landscape design.
General:
Afterglow Farm was established in 1929 on 119 acres in southeastern Wisconsin along Lake Michigan, and is still owned by members of the family. The house and outbuildings were designed in a Germanic style and built from timber and native stone. Originally some of the gardens were planted in food crops that were preserved in a root cellar for winter. Today Afterglow Farm runs a CSA (community supported agriculture) program, growing organic fruits and vegetables and eggs for local subscribers. An "engineered wetlands" was built alongside the CSA fields circa 2000 to clean waste water from the house and barn for reuse in the gardens, with a hillside planted with native wildflowers and grasses for filtration and water storage. The water is moved through troughs to various gardens, a recent innovation in land stewardship and sustainability that have always been important values for the owners of Afterglow Farm.
A former horse paddock was transformed into an ornamental circle in the cottage garden style circa 1930, and today has perennials, flowering trees and shrubs, bulbs and native wildflowers that provide blooms for spring, summer and fall. Other ornamental beds were designed in the New American Style, with sweeping planted beds of single species, using cultivars and native plants that are deer resistant. A new, fenced fruit orchard supplies the CSA members with apples and pears.
Ironwork gates and ornamental panels, and two bear sculptures were designed by the original owner. An old German poem is painted above the door of the farmhouse, which loosely translates to "This house is mine yet not mine. Whoever lived here before, it is not his. Whoever comes after me must also leave sometime. So tell me dear friend, whose house is this?"

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens (Miami, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Miami-Dade County -- Miami
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of correspondence, brochures, photocopies of articles and book chapters about the site, and other information.
General:
Situated along Miami Bay, Vizcaya was the 1916-1925 winter home of industrialist James Deering. With overall supervision by Paul Chalfin, development of the site included a mansion designed by architect Francis Burrall Hoffman, Jr., and extensive gardens created by Colombian-born Diego Suarez. The gardens combined Italian Renaissance and French design elements and took seven years to complete. They were conceived as one vast outdoor room whose individual parts were integrated into a complementary whole. Garden features included many fountains, a central pool surrounding an elevated island, the elevated "Mound" with its small house or "Casino," statuary, and several themed gardens. Over the years hurricanes, humidity, and salt air took a toll on both the mansion and gardens, and much of the original property was sold for development. The site is now owned by Miami-Dade County, is open to the public, and continues to undergo extensive restoration. A recent garden addition is the David A. Klein Orchidarium to the north of the main house.
Persons associated with the property include: James Deering (former owner, 1916-1925); Paul Chalfin (designer); Francis Burrall Hoffman, Jr. (architect); and Diego Suarez (landscape designer).
