Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Garden of Bill Noble (Norwich, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Windsor County -- Norwich
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information, including some plant names.
General:
Located on a 19th-century Vermont farmstead, this garden has been under development since 1991 and is centered around a Greek Revival farmhouse, barn, and barn foundations on 22 acres of terraced lawns, field and woodland. The garden is focused on two acres and possesses a variety of plants not commonly encountered in Vermont gardens, including old-fashioned varieties collected from historic gardens and newer plants from other regions of the country being assessed for garden worthiness in Vermont. The main flower garden consists of four rectangular beds planted as a mixed border with deciduous shrubs, roses, herbaceous perennials, and self-sown annuals. This flower garden opens up westerly onto a lawn bordered by a 70-foot-long stone foundation wall. This border is planted for foliage interest to contrast with the floral display of the main flower garden. A rock garden with troughs is situated on the terrace above the walls in the remains of a former dairy barn, with the deteriorated cement floors providing ideal growing space for a variety of rock and alpine plants. A moss garden lies next to the former dairy in the footprint of a former stable, while the Silver and Gold border, named for the eponymous shrubby dogwood, is a transition from the foundation gardens to a field, with paths mowed into the tall grass. Other areas of interest include a vegetable garden east of the flower garden, borders of shade loving plants, an aster border, banks of native roses; and a slope of fall and winter interest with conifers, evergreen groundcovers and grasses.
March 1, 2008, is the only date indicated for all of the slides, although they appear to have been taken at various times of the year, possibly during 2007.
Persons associated with the site include Betty and Robert McKenzie (former owners, 1924-1990).

Place:
Hayward Garden (Westminster West, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Windham -- Westminster West
Scope and Contents:
Hayward Garden includes 63 digital images and a folder that includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and additional images including a pamphlet about a musical program created for and perfomed in the garden in 2014 as a the Yellow Barn summer program.
General:
The owners describe their one and one-half acre ornamental garden as a new garden in an old place, with its 200 year-old colonial farmhouse and attached barn, low stone walls, and old farm building foundations that have been repurposed as distinctive garden rooms within surrounding meadows and woods. They purchased the property in 1983 and spent about one year clearing the land of scrap metal and other debris, brambles and weed trees, a rotting barn, dead trees, and an old Nash Metropolitan automobile. The garden style is English, with a rectilinear format from south to north softened by lush growth in season and more evident in the long Vermont winter. The design began by drawing a straight line from the front door of the house to a 75-year-old apple tree. There is a crab apple orchard along that main axis that can be seen from the house. Brick and pea stone gravel walks, 90-foot long mixed borders, and an herb garden laid out in formal parterres are either parallel or perpendicular to the central axis of the garden. The 14 garden rooms are delineated by clipped hedges of varying heights, many of yew but also other plant materials for variation. There are four places to sit within the garden: a gazebo at the far end reached through a tunnel of pleached copper beech, an outdoor dining room on pavers under tall trees, a bench slightly above and overlooking their spring garden, and another bench next to a shed near the herb garden.
Creating a garden in harmony with the rural location was important to the owners, who subsequently purchased 19 adjacent acres and preserved the meadows and woods with the Vermont Land Trust. To instill harmony in the diverse garden rooms the owners adhere to three themes: hedges for structure, black locust posts and terra cotta containers for materials, and burgundy and other reds for the color that recurs throughout the garden rooms. Since the entire garden is unified it is possible to add variations without muddling the design. Honoring the long gone dairy farms they have turned the foundations of a milking parlor into a garden room that has low, drought tolerant plants growing among the stone flooring and three rusted milk cans. The cracked cement foundation of a former silo was turned into a pond with a fountain built into a stone wellhead and a statue of Buddha on the shore.
Gordon Hayward has written many articles for Horticulture, Taunton's Fine Gardening, and regional magazines using his own garden to teach design aesthetics and their practical application. Topics include the effective placement of planted and unplanted containers and other garden ornaments, how to build a small fountain, the importance of proportions to design, how to set vertical posts, and tips on outdoor seating and dining rooms. Good design is illustrated by reshaping lawns to complement planted borders or trees, through consistent choices of decorative materials, through applying the principles of theme and variation when choosing what to put in the garden, and through planning for the winter garden with berries and crab apples for birds and good "bones" that become evident in winter.
Persons associated with the garden include: Gordon Hayward (owner, garden designer, and gardener, 1983- ), Mary Hayward (owner, garden designer, and gardener, 1983- ), Ephraim and Lydia Johnson Ranney, and their descendants in the Buxton and Reed families (former owners, circa 1790-1983); Helen O'Donnell (gardener, 2008-2015).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, and copies of articles about the garden and the Brauers.
General:
Established in 1980, this ca. 2.5 acre garden lies on a peninsula jutting into Liberty Bay, an arm of Puget Sound. The site was originally homesteaded in 1889. The garden is informal and incorporates as many different species of trees and shrubs as possible, including many dwarf trees. Several large grassy areas include a meadow that is cut two times a year. Above the beach is a long, winding perennial garden that is gradually evolving into a shade garden. Because many of the trees and shrubs are grown from seeds or cutting from friends of the owner or exchanges, the feeling of the garden is changing all the time; it may even eventually evolve into a mixed forest. Challenges with which the owners have had to contend in developing the garden include brush, junk left from previous uses, soil consisting of heavy blue clay and fine glacial silt, and a constant struggle to maintain the view of the sound and the Olympic Mountains. Raised planting areas, a variety of plants resulting in year-round bloom, and the use of evergreen ground covers and dwarf shrubs in many different hues and textures have led to a result that respects and builds on the natural setting, yet incorporates such highlights as water features and a bonsai collection.
Persons associated with the garden include: Uno Noll Brauer and Sara Elizabeth Peterson Brauer and family (former owners, 1889-1975); John Fluke (former owner, 1975-1979); Daniel Robinson (landscape contractor, 1982-1983); Dick Yamasaki (landscape designer, 1980-1981); and Denise Kelly (gardener, 1983 to date).

Homewood (Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Sheboygan County -- Sheboygan Falls
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and other information.
General:
Commissioned by the parents of the present owner, Homewood is truly a family home. It was built in 1937 from an architectural design modeled after the original Homewood at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, built by Charles Carroll in 1801. The architectural plan was featured in the 1939 New York World's Fair as a model home featuring a modern take on the classic Colonial design customized to meet the needs of the average American family. The home was designated as a historic landmark of Sheboygan County in 1983 and was surveyed for the Historic Preservation Division of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin.
The vegetable gardens of Homewood date back to the World War II victory garden that the present owner helped to maintain as a child. The gardens have since evolved to address issues of pest control, shade, and to increase produce yield by incorporating raised beds, lattice supports, and additional fencing to help alleviate some the challenges of growing a large vegetable garden. The gardens in their current form were established beginning in 1990, when the present owners renovated the family home.
The main vegetable plot features protective plantings of cedar trees and bittersweet vine, a raspberry patch, and a revolving assortment of vegetable beds which include plantings of greens and lettuce mixes, beans, herbs, tomatoes, and peppers, to name a few, as well as perennials such as rhubarb and asparagus. An additional kitchen garden is located close to the house, where herbs, lettuces, and tomatoes are grown. The abundant vegetable plantings yield enough produce for sharing with friends and neighbors, and canning, freezing, pickling and storage of the crops allows the harvest to last throughout the year.
A sixteen foot long arbor serves as the entrance to the main fenced and gated vegetable garden. Clematis, grapevine, and climbing roses grow on the arbor, which features a crushed limestone path and a bench to provide seating. Additional features on the property include two native prairie areas, a native tree and shrub nursery, and a steep embankment on the back of the property includes maple, oak and ash trees and a wetland abutting an adjoining river.
Persons associated with the garden include: Dr. Horace J. Hansen and Mrs. Elizabeth Hansen (former owners, 1937-1992); and Dwight James Baum (architect, 1937).
Related Materials:
Homewood related holdings consist of 1 folder (20 35 mm slides (photographs); 17 digital images; and 20 photographic prints (reference))
Additional material regarding the property is located in the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center, Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin.

General:
Although the 1949 white clapboard house was sited far back from the road one of the principle aims of the garden design for this approximately one acre property has been to provide privacy from the road and from neighboring properties. Beginning work in 1988 the owners developed new garden areas by: adding hardscape features including a deck behind the house and newly-designed curved wall patios in front of the house, grading to direct water run-off away from the house and garden beds, re-purposing a small former playhouse as a potting shed at the end of a new bluestone path, and installing an irrigation system. Then more extensive plantings could be installed, focusing on creating four seasons of interest, using more native plants, attracting songbirds, butterflies and wildlife, developing a seamless tapestry of all the garden areas, and providing views of the vernacular garden from the house, patios, covered porch and deck. The view from the street was also considered and a timber terraced perennial bed was installed on the street side of the shrub screen bed.
A small oval perennial bed in front of the house was enlarged to wrap around the side of the house, forming an L-shaped shrub, rose and mixed perennial garden. Pansies provide winter bloom, followed by spring bulbs, peonies, spireas and iris. In summer and fall perennials include day-lilies, bee balm, hibiscus and Shasta daisies. Shrub roses were added to the old roses from previous plantings that were re-positioned. Another smaller L-shaped bed along the side driveway includes a tower of stacked large flower pots that are planted with seasonal annuals. A shade border follows the curve of the other patio and because this side of the house is downhill and wetter plantings include red twig dogwoods and marsh marigolds. Two large oasis flower beds were installed around trees in the front lawn, a crimson king maple and a mature oak, with hellebores for winter, and narcissus, ferns, hostas, and Japanese anemones for successive blooms and foliage.
The roadside garden has a screen of native cedars, forsythias, hydrangeas and lilacs, under-planted with hostas, perennial hibiscus and daffodils. A white garden that can be viewed across the lawn from the house at the end of the day includes a white flowering redbud tree, white bleeding heart, woodland phlox, wood asters, candytuft and tiarella. The potting shed garden was overgrown with shrubs and vines that were cleared away, to be replaced by transplanted rhododendrons and a tree peony, perennials and hydrangeas as well as the bluestone path, a native stone wall, and a bench. At the back of the house the entire back yard was regraded and had drains installed, the latticework under the deck was replaced with planters, and a stone patio was built for sitting in the perennial and shrub garden with roses that is bordered by boxwood. At the back end of the property there is a wooded area with a ravine.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles and Mary Frances Brooks (former owners, 1947-1954); George and Patty Jones Jr. (former owners, 1954-1987); Lynne Schwartz-Barker (landscape designer, 2002-2015); Mark Blumenstein (sculptor); Jeff Fetty (sculptor).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, and a narrative description of the garden keyed to the individual slides. The garden is noted for its English style, the variety and particularity of its plantings (some of which were imported from England), and the overall attention of its owner to fine detail in both planning and execution.
General:
"This garden is a reflection of the owner's connoisseurship and exquisite taste. It is essentially English in style, in that formal elements mix with informal plantings of a great variety of flowers. The garden is divided into two main sections. The area surrounding the house consists mainly of decorative plantings. The second section is located north of the house, separated from it by hedging, and consists of a kitchen garden and orchard as well as decorative plants."
Special features include a crazy-paved bluestone patio, with a variety of herbs, flowers, and other plants growing between the stones; a wrought iron temple modeled after one at Kew Gardens and placed on a high mound in the southwest corner of the garden; and extensive plantings of fruit trees, daffodils, and hellebores. Many of the latter have been hybridized by the owner.
Persons associated with the property include: T. W. Wilmer (former owner); Robert S. Hebb (designer, mid-1990s); and Robert Kibler (horticulturist).
