General:
From 1955 until their deaths in 2007 Elisabeth and George H. Dunklin were involved with the nurturing of this garden in the Longmeadow area of Pine Bluff. Siting their Lucien Dent-designed home on a rise beyond a small wooded creek, they also planned a circle drive to cross the creek in two places behind existing trees. Landscape architect J. Duke Moody designed the garden to enhance the home and to reflect the owners' desire for a walled garden with a fountain as well as space for entertaining. The u-shaped home encloses a brick terrace, which is offset by somewhat formally placed shrubs and garden statuary. The terrace offers a view of a rectangle of lawn and a playing fountain beyond. The creek bisects two distinct lawns leading up to the front entrance. Foundation planting features large English boxwood, pruned to keep a graceful "cauliflower" shape, across the front of the house. A tennis court and a large, open lawn stretch to the west of the north-facing house, while to the east a smaller lawn ends in a thick growth of trees along the rocky creek.

Pine Bluff -- Dunklin Garden 1955-1987

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Dunklin Garden 1955-1987 (Pine Bluff, Arkansas)
United States of America -- Arkansas -- Jefferson County -- Pine Bluff
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plan, oral history sheet, narrative description, and plant list.
General:
The house and gardens were inspired by a house called "Green Leaves" in Mississippi that was built around a large oak tree. The plans for this garden involved a glass house wrapped around the largest of three oak trees on the property. The plan featured a large flagstone terrace with an "S" curved seating wall built around the largest oak and an open lawn for the children to play in. The plan also provided for privacy by the planting of a deep "woodsy" border along the property line to the east. Plantings of oaks, live oaks, pines, and dogwoods over camellias and azleas, set in deep beds bordered by mondo grass, were installed. Holly hedges marked the property lines east and north. Access to the side yard from the back garden was through a gate set in a brick wall that connected the house to the property line to the east. Another huge oak gave shade to the west front of the house. A grove of river birches and naturalized daffodils was planted close to the south side of the house. Another holly hedge made an enclosed area around the west library window. Circa 1960, the owners increased the depth of the center tree and shrub border about 20 feet and added more azaleas and dogwood trees. Owners after 1987 have not maintained the garden according to its original plan. Most of the trees are now gone.
Persons associated with the property include: J. Duke Moody (landscape architect, 1955); Louis M. Dunklin (architect, 1955).

General:
A 100-year-old red oak tree is a feature of Bellingrath Longmeadow Garden, a 7/8-acre wedge shaped property that has a New Orleans-style French Colonial house designed in 1957 by architect Myrlin McCullar, with the original garden design by J. Duke Moody of Memphis. A generous lawn at the curved front of the property faces the street, with a plant and hardscape parterre designed and installed in 1983 by Donna Pittman King. Ornate wrought iron gates on either side of the house give access to the garden area, which features a swimming pool, flagstone terrace and cabana used for entertaining and relaxation. There is a wall fountain at the rear of the garden, filling the narrowest part of the property.
Bellingrath Gardens near Mobile, Alabama, inspired the design of the garden, including banks of azaleas planted near the cabana, garage, and dog pen. Along one side of the property there is a woodsy border of maples, dogwood, live oaks, pines and camellias with an understory planting of azaleas, hostas, vinca minor, bulbs and annuals in season. Burfordi and East Palatka hollies, river birches, river oaks and willow oaks border the property or shade the house. Other plants in the garden include Japanese boxwood, Asian jasmine groundcover, a border of Lady Banks roses, dwarf sasanqua camellias and weeping yaupon hollies. In addition to the wall fountain "Boy with a Fish" there are two bronze putti sculptures outside the cabana.
Persons associated with the property include: Myrlin McCullar (architect of house, 1956); J. Duke Moody (landscape designer, 1957); Donna Pittman King (landscape architect, Pittman Landscape Planners, Inc., 1983 - present).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and an excerpt of the Garden Club of America 59th Annual Meeting pamphlet.
General:
The Black Garden designed by J. Duke Moody had a formal symmetrical structure with two brick terraces with outdoor furniture, fountains and brick-edged garden borders with easily maintained plantings. Sculptures were placed on plinths against brick backdrops and a wrought iron gazebo at the end of the principle terrace was planted with yellow trumpet vine. Although originally a mid-19th c. farmhouse the brick building was updated with French grille doors, a bay window overlooking the garden, and a garden room made from a screened porch.
This garden was originally documented as part of the Hollerith Family slide collection donated in 1993. An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012.
Persons associated with the property include: J. Duke Moody (garden designer, 1967-1980).
