Company Farm (Pottstown, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Pottstown
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, copies of photographs, copy of Pennsylvania Historic Resource Survey form, copies of public sale announcements, 1843 property inventory, 1754 deed, and garden plan.
General:
The property, being primarily a farm, had a relatively simple garden behind the house except for more sophisticated landscaping by the former owners of the Tudor-style house. Historically, there has been a strong connection of the property to the old Schuylkill Canal. In the early 19th century, the farm was used to raise mules needed to pull the barges from upstate Pennsylvania to Philadelphia. The present owners wished to emphasize the natural landscape. A pond is fed from run-off from a spring. Rhododendrons are interspersed with grassy areas and stone walls. A trip to a Japanese garden, designed by Kobori Enshu, inspired the owners to recreate it using stones to represent cranes and a small central peninsula representing the island of eternal youth. A later trip to Thailand inspired the garden's Thai Spirit House. The garden has been used for Thai students to perform dances, for weddings, and as a gathering place for Easter sunrise services and garden tours.
Special appreciation for the owners' children's hard work is shown by placing bronze statues in special garden settings. "Celebration," by L'Deane Trueblood (1999), is dancing in a large oval garden. The bronze statue, "Wings," by Gary Price (1996), stands on a high rock depicting a young boy launching his model plane. "Child of Peace," by Edward Fenno Hoffman III. (1960), depicts a boy cuddling a dove. "Garden Chimes," by Val Bertoia (2000), represents the gardener's love for music.
Persons associated with the garden include: Thomas and Richard Penn (patent owners, 1754); James and John Ingles (former owners, 1754-1806); Christian and Daniel Beary (former owners, 1806-1836); Eli Harley (1836-1844); John Reifsnyder (former owner, 1844-1847); Schuylkill Navigation Company (former owner, 1847-1896); Reading Railroad (former owners, 1896-1914); Joseph Elwood Reitenbaugh (former owner, 1914-1928); Anthony N. Bullock (former owner, 1928-1934); G. Clymer Brooke (former owner, 1934-1945); Claude and Minnie Shelton (former owners, 1945-1970); and Robert Clevenger (former owner, 1970).

Brookline -- Southwood

Place:
Southwood (Brookline, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Brookline
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of information about the history of the site, and other information.
General:
Southwood, on Warren Street, was the Brookline estate of Barthold Schlesinger. Its mansion was said to have been inspired by a 17th-century Scottish manor. Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., was commissioned in 1879 to develop the landscape of the extensive estate, and he worked on this project for the next ten years. So successful was the result that Olmsted's reputation in Brookline was established, resulting in his firm's move to the Boston suburb from New York to a location not far from Southwood. Olmsted's vision for the property was typical in its incorporation of the natural landscape with specimen trees and sweeping vistas. After a change in ownership of the estate to F. J. Oakes, Jr., the Olmsted firm was commissioned to amend the original design, which it did between 1918 and 1922. The property, reduced by subdivision, is now the Holy Transfiguration Monastery, but retains much of its original Olmsted character. The photographs in this series were probably taken between 1900 and 1910, a period when Thomas W. Sears took many images of Brookline.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect, 1879-1890); Barthold Schlesinger (former owner, 1879-ca. 1915); Francis J. Oakes, Jr. (former owner, ca. 1915-?); and Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects, 1918-1922).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Tall Pines (Dover, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Dover
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan.
General:
This garden site encompasses 26 acres set in a pine forest. Its owners, who began developing the garden in the 1960s, and who have done all of their own design work, have tried to keep the elements of a natural landscape--a sloping field with a few rhododendrons, andromeda, and junipers sloping down to an old stone wall with a pond beyond. There are dogwoods, redbuds, and birch on the perimeter. A small wildflower garden lies next to a garden pool built by the owners. Elsewhere on the property can be found an outdoor theater, while an allee of shadbush (Amelanchier) lines part of the front driveway. The garden received a 1992 Visiting Garden Silver Medal Award from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.
Persons associated with the garden include: I. W. Colburn (architect, 1959).

Untitled Garden (Hingham, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Plymouth County -- Hingham
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, and a plant list.
General:
This 12-acre garden site is situated in a stretch of woodland adjacent to Cushing Pond, a man-made body of water originally created to provide ice for the local people. The terrain of low hills and valleys is enhanced by forests of oak, pine, ash, mountain laurel, dogwood, maples, azaleas, rhododendron, and other species. The house was designed in 1966-67 by Robert Woods Kennedy, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright's influence is shown through the house's citing to reflect its natural surroundings and its adaptation of Japanese style. Although the owners originally developed a traditional New England type garden under the supervision of landscape architect Dan Kiley, by the 1980s they felt that this style was incompatible with that of the house. Internationally acclaimed Japanese landscape architect Shinchiro Abe was called in to redesign the gardens (Abe's other work includes designs for the United Nations in New York and for gardens in Denmark and Spain). Rocks brought from the surrounding woods became a key element in the new design. All were cut by hand and properly moved and placed facing east, west, north, or south according to Abe's "feelings." These rocks were used to embellish pools and the courtyard and to serve as stepping stones and lanterns. The style of the garden is typical of a "kare sansui" or dry rock garden. Rocks, moss mounds and pea stone are some of the materials used to represent various natural landscapes such as islands, mountains, and oceans. Some other special features of this garden are the traditionally pruned lacy Japanese black pines, the hand-carved water basin, and stone lanterns. There is also a gate and diagonal granite walk representing the bridging of two worlds. Additional walks were then planned by Yuzo Tenako, another Japanese landscape architect who established many views of Cushing Pond and assured a landscape true to the Japanese style.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Robert Woods Kennedy (architect, 1966-1967); Dan Kiley (landscape architect, 1967); Shinchiro Abe of Zen Associates, Inc. (landscape architect, 1986); and Yuzo Tenako of Japanese Garden Design, Inc. (landscape architect, 1986).

General:
"Post Landscape, a division of Post Properties, designs, installs, and maintains with an in-house staff of over 100 people. Each apartment community site is unique and only conceptual designs are formally drawn on paper. All designs are generated in the field using the existing topography as a blank canvas. Each landscape architect paints bedlines on the ground and indicates which plants are used. The plants are determined from an ever-changing Preferred Plant List (PPL) that is updated annually. The Preferred Plant List is determined through a five-year testing process and availability of plants." Post Landscape uses the principles of xeriscaping (matching the right plant to the right place) and integrated pest management.
Post Village is a 300-acre site, containing five separate apartment home communities, totaling more than 1,700 units. In addition to amenities such as tennis courts and swimming pools, Post Village's landscape features a marsh area, more than 300,000 bulbs, a lake, and extensive use of screening plants.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Larry Meister (landscape architect, 1978 to date); Don Rutzen (landscape architect, 1977 to date); Todd T. Tibbitts (horticulturist, 1983 to date); Carol Hooks (horticulturist, 1984 to date); John D. Hooks (officer, Post Landscape, 1979 to date); John A.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
These gardens were designed and installed in 1970-1971 to complement the Japanese style of the house that had just been built by the current owners on an older property. Quail Hill comprises nineteen acres, mostly woodlands and natural landscape, with a view towards Mount Tamalpais. There is a private drive to the house bordered by a stone wall and groves of redwood and live oak trees that date back to the 1930s. The designed gardens interwoven with sections of the house include the motor court, three courtyard gardens, three interlocking water gardens, a swimming pool and pool house, and rectangular and octagonal cutting gardens that are hidden from view but provide flowers for the house for most of the year. The Japanese-stye gardens designed by Japanese landscape architect Nagao Sakurai and Japanese-American landscape architect Casey Kawamoto have been maintained for 45 years.
The oblong motor court is bordered on the far side by the pre-existing rock wall and natural landscape while against the white plaster walls of the house pine, cypress, holly and maple trees are kept in the niwaki style, or controlled pruning. The classic elements of the Japanese garden are used here: stone, gravel and a mostly green plant palate. There is a large stone Kasuga style lantern, one of many placed in the gardens. The entry courtyard garden includes Mondo grass, moss, pine, holly, a flowering cherry and Japanese maple, white azaleas, groupings of large rocks and a stream of gravel that leads to another large Japanese lantern. The rectangular swimming pool off this courtyard, with the view of Mount Tamalpais, is dark blue to reflect the sky. Slate paving stones are used for walkways and as accent around the pool, and stone aggregate concrete is used for decks. The courtyard garden outside the dining room is anchored at one end by a copper beech and at the other by a Japanese maple with baby's tears and another stream of gravel and kasuga lantern.
The water gardens designed by Sakurai begin with a delicate waterfall into a pond from which the water tumbles over small rocks to another pond. Finally there is a small cascade into a pool surrounded by iris, Mondo grass, nandina, pines and maples. Wood trim on the house and pool house are painted dark brown or "Golden Gate" orange that contrasts with the predominantly green palate of the plants.
Persons associated with the garden include Norman and Caroline Livermore (former owners, 1930-1969); Nagao Sakurai (1896-1973) (landscape architect, 1970); Casey A. Kawamoto (1919-2010) (landscape architect, 1970-1971); Harold Sato (landscape contractor, 1970).

Wild Moor (Newport, Rhode Island)
Scope and Contents:
This file contains 20 digital images and 1 folder.
General:
Established in 1887, Wild Moor (also known as Berry Hill) is a woodland and natural landscape planted with native species on 22 acres. It has been in the same family for over 100 years and is protected by a land trust by new owners. Wild Moor sits on the second highest point on Aquidneck Island, overlooking Narragansett Bay, the Newport Country Club, and before the extensive planting of trees, the town of Newport and its harbor.

The garden was cultivated by the first owners, Walter and Mary Howe. Water penned a book of essays titled, 'The Garden.' After Walter's death Mary married Arnold Hague, a geologist and amateur botanist. She attended botany courses at Columbia University and the couple began to plant specimen trees, shrubs, fern landscapes, a rock garden, swaths of crocus, trout lilies and narcissus. The added acreage and constructed a tennis court, greenhouses, stone garden sheds and a rose house.

Mary Howe Hague was the first president of the Newport Garden Club. Club members were invited to the property's spring flowering in 1914 and it was open to visits by members throughout the family's ownership of the estate.

Donald MacKay Fraser, a coachman promoted to gardener, oversaw Berry Hill from 1932 to 1976. A Scottish immigrant, he was not trained in horticulture, but overtime became a knowledgeable gardener who sought advice from other gardeners including other Scots working on Newport's grand estates. MacKay's era saw the gradual clearing of the land and construction of structures including a stonewall-enclosed "Little Garden," "Loch Fraser," a catchment pond, the "Shanty," a wooden shed perched atop fitted with a small fireplace and baby grand piano for Mary Carlisle Howe, an accomplished composer and one of the founders of the National Symphony Orchestra.

The property was sold in 2020 and renamed Wild Moor, the windswept garden, with mossy dells, rock-strewn lawns and panoramic vistas.

Persons associated with the property include: Walter and Mary Ann Bruce Howe (former owner, 1887); Walter Bruce Howe (former owner, 1923); Mary C. Howe (former owner, 1954); Bruce Howe (former owner, 1959); Berry Hill Nominee Trust (former owner, 1992); Samuel Parsons (unknown role, 1887); Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect of subdivision/sited the house); McKim, Mead, and White? (architect); Michael Carney (head gardener, 1889-1908); William Richardson (head gardener, 1909-1919); Charles Clark (head gardener, 1920-1930); Frederick S. Franco (head gardener, 1931-1932); Donald Fraser (coachman and gardener, superintendent/horticulture, 1933-1975); John Salvador (head gardener, 1976-1992); Keith Hayward (head gardener, 1993-present); Howe family (garden designers).

Records related to the overall subdivision in which this property is located may be found at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site, Olmsted Job Number 00681, King-Glover Lands.

Historical Note:
On January 16th, 1937, one hundred and forty-seven members of The Garden Club of America (GCA) arrived at the United States-Mexico border for a nineteen day tour of various sites in Mexico. The trip was largely organized by Mrs. Walter Douglas, but there were many who contributed to the trip's itinerary. Included in the list of hosts were the wife of the Minister of Foreign Relations, members of the Garden Club of Mexico, Professor P. Khankhoje from the Plant Bureau of Mexico, and politicians such as the governor of the Federal District, Cosme Hinjosa.

The extensive trip through Mexico covered a vast amount of territory, landscapes, and destinations. The group visited the towns and cities of Guaymas, Mazatlan, Guadalajara, Uruapan, Patzcuaro, Mexico City, Toluca, Puebla, Xochimilco, and Queretaro. As evidenced by images from the trip, each city offered an assortment of attractions including natural landscapes, vibrant cultural encounters, murals, historical landmarks, and for some, even witnessing a bullfight. The group also visited gardens including The Botanical Garden in Uruapan; Chapultepec Castle; Casa Alvarado; the Churubusco Monastery; the Carmelite Church, and the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco. The trip ended for southwestern GCA members in Laredo, Texas; for others, it ended in St. Louis where that chapter's garden club welcomed its fellow members for an evening of conversation and refreshments.

The folder includes a worksheet, garden plans, a detailed narrative history and description of the garden, brochures, and photocopies of articles and images of and about the garden and its sculpture.
General:
Under development by the same owners since the early 1960s, Sand Hill provides a peaceful retreat from its surrounding urban environment. It combines features of the natural landscape with more formal elements developed near the home. Because of the owners' mutual enthusiasm for the architecture of gardens, they have created a green garden composed primarily of evergreen materials which lend themselves to this kind of design. Boxwood and topiary are used extensively as is sculpture in various shapes, sizes, and styles. Because of its focus on architecture and basic structure, the garden is of interest in all seasons.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: Lorenzo and Christina Sims (former owners, 1849-1857); George Gray and George Bogenwright (former owners, 1857-1867); Matilda Mentzer (former owner, 1867-1908); the Bogenwright estate (former owner, 1867-1908); R.

United States of America -- Maine -- Hancock County -- Mount Desert Island
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, landscape plan, and planting plan.
General:
This garden was designed to draw on the movement of the Sound, the mountains, and the water. The owners and the architect settled on two aims--to let the natural landscape inspire their plans and to create a replica of it. They did this by cutting down trees and creating a pond to reflect the Sound in the distance. They also wanted to create an easy way of descending from the house onto a large lawn below, which would become a pleasant place to entertain. Terraces were created and planted with Rosa rugosa. The front side of the house became the place to use complementary flowers. The path to the house is bordered by a hedge of coreopsis and hydrangea blooms. A small cutting garden is hidden behind a white picket fence on the right side of the drive.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Mr. and Mrs. David Donnan (former owners, 1987-1993) and Morgan Wheelock (landscape architect, 1995-1998).
