United States of America -- Washington -- King County -- Seattle
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, plant lists, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This garden is composed of two parts: an upper garden and a lower garden. The lower garden is a Japanese garden enclosed by a high brick wall. A small stream framed with plants winds through the lawn in view of the house. It originates from a natural spring on the upper level, forming a waterfall as it fills the pool below. The pool is surrounded by a rockery planted with azaleas, dwarf Japanese maples, and pine trees. A Colorado spruce cascades over the waterfall. In the spring the upper level is a mass of blooming daffodils and narcissus bulbs. These give way later to flowering rhododendrons, azaleas, etc., which are planted in beds surrounding the lawn. On either side of the upper lawn are native trees and shrubs, such as elms and huckleberry. A pink dogwood and Prunus dominate this part of the garden in the fall.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Robert Popin Greer (former owners, 1913-1954); Otto Holmdahl (landscape gardener, 1930); Oliver Ester (landscape gardener, 1950-1960); John Kenyon (landscape gardener, 1950-1960); Ossie Ohata (gardener, 1960-1990); and Don Asalton (gardener, 1993 to date).

General:
"There is an austere elegance about a green garden; pink or yellow or red are frivolous except as accents, but the garden that appeals to the romantic, universal soul is the blue garden. That is why the Blue Garden of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Curtiss James was the ultimate goal of so many Newport Pilgrims. A very stately garden it is with the iridescent quality which blue flowers that really are mauve and purple and grayish, rather than true, sharp blue, impart. Its irregular symmetry makes it difficult to describe without a ground plan. At the two far distant ends are colonnades with gray rocks and irregular green plantations beyond, and the lower end is a circle of matchless turf whose boundary is rock and shrubs. The upper part is a circle, too, formed by a rustic lattice of slender split branches over which grow Clematis Jackmanii, mauve Sweet-peas and other charming creepers, backed by Cedars and Pines. In the center are two pools fed by water that trickles from beneath the colonnade."
"A thousand foot rose garden was blasted out of granite rock. A long grass allee originated by the reflecting pool, was planted with 5,000 roses of many varieties. The allee ascended several levels of stone walls and steps and climaxed under a high granite cliff, where a splendid stone and ironwork balustrade and imposing pergola were located. Mr. James died in 1942, all the roses were dug and sold and nature moved in to sow her seeds."
"The Beacon Hill house was left unoccupied and in 1967 finally succumbed to vandalism and fire." The gardens have been restored by subsequent owners.
Persons associated with the property include: Arthur Curtiss James (former owner, 1909-1940); Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects); John Greatorex (superintendent of grounds and landscape gardener); Harriet R. Foote (garden designer and rosarian); Peckham Brothers (contractors for rose garden); Hempstead of Boston (landscape contractors/superintendent); Edward Van Altena (lantern slide maker).

General:
The mansion consists of two parts--the first built in 1764 by Dr. Thomas Walker and the second in 1824 by Senator and Mrs. William Cabell Rives. An hour-glass lawn and giant boxwood hedges make up a part of the landscape. Garden "rooms" were also created. In 1930, the landscape was described as "a great square, bounded on the north side by a high brick wall against which stand fig bushes, and enclosed on the other three sides by a Colonial arrowhead picket-fence. The garden lies in four deep terraces." (Potts 1930) The estate was open to the public from 1972 until ca. 1990. About ten years later the house was sold separate from the property. The house was subsequently moved off its foundations to a different location.
Persons associated with the property include: Dr. Thomas Walker (former owner, 1764); Senator and Mrs. William Cabell Rives (former owners, 1864); Col.

General:
This ¾ acre property was built in 1939 and had three separate owners before the current owners purchased the home and established the garden in 2004. When the current owners purchased the property, the design of the garden was formal and traditional. There was no foundation planning so they planted all of the existing hedges, boxwoods, and foundation shrubs. There were originally Asiatic jasmine, trumpet vine, and Virginia creeper scattered across the property, but the they avoided cutting these off of the pine tree in the perennial bed after arborists informed them of their integral role in supporting the tree. They built and installed all the hardscape across sixteen months, having to first clear the property around the house. George Betsill designed the landscaping and hardscaping while Robert Kennedy designed the architectural additions to the home. Ruth Lacie was responsible for the design of the perennial beds.
The main architectural features are the flagstone terrace with outdoor seating, a brick covered fireplace, a toolshed constructed of repurposed brick, and the brick walkway shaded by trees and lined with copper outdoor lighting. Flagstone stepping stone paths connect each structure on the property. During renovation, the current owners used old bricks that matched the original bricks used for the home to construct the toolshed and extension to the house. A gate next to the shed is surrounded by trained tea olive. The main garden (Nanny's Garden) and seating area includes teak outdoor furniture, a concrete birdbath made by the owner's grandfather for his wife, and black wooden double doors that match the entry door. The perennial bed near the greenhouse features hydrangeas, hostas, and lenten roses. A variety of camellias, including a tall Sasanqua with pink buds, remain from the original owner's plantings. There is an extensive use of boxwood for foundation planting and edging. There are several roses trained on trellises and metal obelisks along the house exterior walls. The large oak on the property was removed in 2020.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. And Mrs. Richard Shafto (former owners, 1939 – 1960); Mr. And Mrs. George Dial (former owners, 1960 – 1974); Mr. And Mrs. Dan Hollin (former owners, 1974 – 2004); E. Robertson Kibler (owner, 2004 – present); George Betsill (landscape architect, 2004 – 2017); Ruth Lacey (landscaper and garden designer, 2004 – 2015) Elizabeth Kibler (owner, 2004 – present).

The folder includes a worksheet, narrative history, copies of articles, Garden Club of America correspondence, and copy of "The Highlands Preservation Master Plan" by George E. Patton (December 1977).
General:
The Highlands lies on the old Skippack Pike in the White Marsh Valley. The English-style stone house was built by Anthony Morris in 1796. The Sheaff's developed the garden with two stone walls--one being crenelated. During Caroline S. Sinkler's ownership after 1915, the garden was renovated closely following the original existing features. Along both walls, there used to be lean-to greenhouses. These were removed by Sinkler and used to create a new wall. The plan of the garden had two axes that formed four separate gardens, one of them a parterre with a large sundial. Small pools, Italian sculptures, and garden ornaments were placed in the garden during Sinkler's time. Decay of the garden began after the death of Mrs. Roosevelt, when the property was bequeathed to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Anthony Morris (former owner, 1796); George Sheaff (former owner); John Sheaff (former owner, ?-1915); Caroline Sinkler (former owner, 1915-); Nicholas G. and Emily Roosevelt (former owners, ?-1970); Archie Coutts (gardener); Wilson A. Eyre (landscape architect, 1917); George Saylor (gardener); Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (owners, 1970); and Highlands Historical Society.

Place:
Rocky Crest (Gladwyne, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Gladwyne
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, site plans, and narrative history.
General:
Rocky Crest contains over fifteen acres that overlook Mill Creek. The lower 5.9 acres are known as the Alberta and Joseph Pew Memorial Preserve, protected in perpetuity under a conservation easement held by Natural Lands Trust. The upper 9.5 acres, also under an easement, contain the residence, carriage house, swimming pool, tennis courts, greenhouses, and gardens. The gardens were begun in 1905 by James S. Austin (1857-1919). Deeds at this time named the property "Rocky Crest." Austin used the name and applied it to a new, three-story, Colonial Revival stone estate that was built on the site by 1908. Existing features by Thomas Sears include a stone semicircular pool that leads to a raised rectangular garden; a stone terrace that serves as an overlook to the swimming pool and vista below; niche with fountain; integrated stone walls and steps; and small pools that feed into larger ones. In 1994, Christopher Masson replaced flagstone paving with block paving in the courtyard (later replaced by a gravel finish). Masson also designed a formal garden using a pattern of scalloped squares.
A large, gravel courtyard balances the front of this home. The courtyard leads through a wrought iron gate to a terrace from which to view formal garden beds enclosed by old stone walls. The double border sets off a pool house, which is graced by a trellised entry arch. To the left of the walled garden, the pool is fed by a Moorish-style waterway. The large brick and flagstone terrace behind the house boasts a box-edged parterre and oversees rolling lawn in the English landscape garden style.
Persons associated with the garden include: James S. Austin (former owner, 1905); Joseph N. and Alberta Pew, Jr. (former owners, 1919-1988); Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Burch (former owners, 1989-1994); Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect, 1934); and Christopher Masson (landscape architect, 1994).

General:
Created in 2010, this Asian dry-landscape garden features more than 200 bonsai and overlooks a stone house and woodlands within a one and one-quarter acre hillside property in North Carolina. The owners named their garden after the Temple of the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto, Japan, and installed a pavilion used for entertaining, winter storage of some of the bonsai collections, and for storing gardening supplies. The rectangular garden and adjacent lawn are enclosed by low stone walls where the smaller bonsai containers are displayed, each sitting on a revolving stone to facilitate watering and sun exposure. The surface of the garden is brown crushed gravel, with islands of mondo grass and stonecrop planted with Japanese maples, boxwood, dwarf hostas, rockwork, and two large boulders echoing Tenryuji's boulder arrangement in Kyoto. A statue of the Buddha overlooks a small pond and a Burmese brass gong hangs at the pavilion.
The owners became interested in bonsai and Asian design while living in New York, and have been active in the National Bonsai Friendship Foundation, the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington DC, and the World Bonsai Federation. Two ancient trees in their collection were gifts for service to the federation.
Persons associated with the garden include: Bobby Graniere and Cary Lawson McCall (former owners, 2006-2010); Jim Samsel and Deborah Turner (architects); Mark Hoots (landscaper).

General:
A 61-acre property is comprised of woodlands and numerous garden rooms, some with layouts that date back to the mid-19th century. The rock garden has remains of the original rocks and lilies of the valley. A fenced sunny garden behind one of many outbuildings is planted for color. A large kitchen garden has been subdivided but honors the original layout. Newer rooms are called the May Garden, Tropical Garden, Aster Border, Color Garden, Moonlight Garden, Jo's Memorial Garden, and Blue and Yellow Garden. Other early gardens rooms include a serpentine boxwood hedge planted in the 1920's and a circle garden on the approach to the house. Venerable trees include a massive juniper, oaks and redwoods, and the trees and varieties of shrubs complement the 1898 main house on a hill and the woodland garden. There are more than 20 named garden rooms or walks, ten historic outbuildings, and newer features that include cold frames, greenhouses, a lath house that provides shade, and deer fencing around 30 acres. The owners ran a small mail order nursery selling rare plants for about 10 years. In 1930 the Works Progress Administration (WPA) terraced the woodlands to control erosion. In 2001 Montrose was added to The National Register of Historic Places; that same year the owners deeded development rights for 50 acres to the North Carolina Triangle Land Conservancy and began planning a preservation project garden with the Garden Conservancy.

The Woodland Garden was started in 1985 on about 20 terraced acres planted with thousands of bulbs that included daffodils, trilliums, bloodroot, selaginella and wood hyacinths from the owner's mother's garden. Snowdrops proliferate along a walk and in the woods, followed by hellebores, rhododendron, Christmas orchids and cyclamen in August. Maple, beech, oak, sweet gum, hickory and walnut with understory dogwood and redbud provide shade and are filled with the sounds of birds. The informal woodland is the "soul" of the owner's garden. Other features throughout the gardens include a hand-made rustic trellis, antique urns and iron fencing, and large iron utilitarian farm pots that are planted with favorites from year to year.

Persons associated with the garden include: Kirkland (former owner, 1799- ); William A. and Susan Washington Graham and family members (former owners, 1842-1977); Thomas Paxton (landscape gardener, 1842)

General:
Located on the site of a Revolutionary War landmark twenty miles west of New York City, Beacon Hill's nine acres of landscaped gardens and woodlands surround a 27-room Tudor mansion, built in 1910 by Carroll P. Bassett and Margaret K. Bassett. Mrs. Bassett also founded the Summit Garden Club in April, 1916. Stone masonry walls surround the estate, filled with stately oaks, beech and elms with smaller ash, linden, birch and pines, together with innumerable evergreens and shrubs, effectively screen the residence while the profuse plants of shrubs and flowers provide a colorful background year-round. Rumor has it that Mrs. Bassett had planted at least one each of every tree native to New Jersey.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. Carroll Phillips and Mrs. Margaret Kinney Bassett (former owners, 1910-1955); Ruth Hutchinson (Landscape Architect); and Takeo Shiota (Landscape Architect).
