Archival materials
Place:
Twyford (Islip, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Suffolk County -- Islip
Scope and Contents:
The folders include work sheets, a 1963 description of the garden by Charles D. Webster, a garden plan, a map of the area, and a copy of an article about the property.
General:
Twyford was the home of Charles D. and Natalie Peters Webster on the south shore of Long Island. Although the entire property encompassed nearly 200 acres, the gardens, house, and outbuildings were confined to 10 acres, which in turn was part of a 30-acre tract of open fields, marshland, and woods. The Websters began gardening in 1936, when they moved to the late 19th-century house. Formal beds and paths and other designs were complemented by a greenhouse, potting house and tool shed, and an octagonal lathhouse. Other features included a swimming pool, extensive borders and planting of broad-leaved evergreens, lawns, a waterfowl pool, and a farmyard. The property was given by the Websters to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1968 (with life tenancy). The house and other buildings were demolished in 2002 despite the efforts of several preservation groups to save them.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Charles D. Webster (former owner, d. 1998); Natalie Peters Webster (former owner); and Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, c. 1960-1973).

Twyford related holdings consist of 2 folders (18 35 mm. slides; 2 120 mm. slides; 29 photoprints; 143 negatives)

Place:
Vila Garden (Far Hills, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Somerset County -- Far Hills
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and other information.
General:
Designed by Nelva M. Weber, this was the garden of George R. and Betty Vila. At the rear of the Colonial-style house Weber created a brick wall to enclose and separate a lawn and garden area from adjacent outbuildings and the open countryside. An elevated, brick-walled terrace with outdoor seating and brick walkways helped to unify the design. Garden borders, boxwood, and flowering trees and shrubs such as forsythia provided visual interest, while ornamental features included a bell, a martin house, and a whimsical fox sculpture atop one of the brick walls. Several wooden gates and doors provided additional decorative as well as utilitarian touches to the overall design.
Additional documentation relating to the garden may be found in the Nelva Weber Papers in the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections of the Cornell University Library.
Persons associated with the garden include: Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, circa 1966) and George R. and Betty Vila (former owners, circa 1966).

Pitney Farm (Mendham, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Morris County -- Mendham
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, garden plans, a narrative history of the property, photoprints, photocopies of articles about the garden, and additional information.
General:
This 12-acre site is what remains of a property that once included as many as 740 acres. Ten generations of the Pitney family have owned or occupied the farm since its acquisition around 1722. An 1854 oil painting of the farm depicts the farmhouse and outbuildings along with a fenced garden. This garden space remains relatively unchanged today and serves as a cutting garden. John O. H. and Roberta Ballantine Pitney, who owned the property from 1911 to 1942, laid much of the groundwork for the current gardens. They restored and enlarged the house and built a gazebo, tennis court, and swimming pool. Many of their early tree and shrub plantings still thrive today. During the 1930s a brick-walled garden was added to the west side of the property. During the 1960s the currrent owners added two gardens directly outside the home. The first was a St. Francis garden, with a small circular fountain pond adorned by a statue of St. Francis and surrounded by plantings such as azaleas and rhododendrons. The second, an enclosed "breakfast room garden" on the east side of the house, features ornamental trees and shrubs, including an espaliered dogwood Cornus kousa and a Rhododendron carolinianum. The current owners have also transformed the walled garden into a rock garden, built raised beds in the vegetable garden, added a wild flower and native plant walk outside the walled garden, and planted more than 5,000 seedlings. With its 250-year-old maple tree allée, three fruit orchards, and numerous specimen tree and shrub plantings, Pitney Farm is an important arboretum property as well as an American-style garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Jonathan Pitney (former owner, 1720s-1771); James and Desiah Thompson Pitney (former owners, 1771-1802); Mahlon and Rebecca Chidester Pitney (former owners, 1802-1834); Mahlon (2nd) and Lucetta Cooper Pitney (former owners, 1834-1863); Henry Cooper and Sarah Halsted Pitney (former owners, 1863-1911); John O. H. and Roberta Ballantine Pitney (former owners, 1911-1942); Robert H. Pitney (former owner, 1942-1944); Howard Fiske (landscape architect, 1966); Marco Polo Stufano (landscape designer, 1985); and John McNally (landscape designer, 1985).

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?"
Persons associated with the property include: Steve and Sandy Sandlin (caretakers and gardeners, 1995-present); Dean Wiegert (gardener, 2007-present); Christine Sobocinski (assistant gardener, 2007-present); Mark Hartzell (property manager, 2006-present); Jorgen Hansen, ALA (Port City Studio, architect and master planner, 1998-present); David Flowers, P.E.

General:
The garden at Villa Filipponi is a tapestry of tropical trees, shrubs, ground cover plants, cacti and succulents with orchids mounted on tree trunks and planted in containers. The main garden has a large center lawn surrounded by borders containing fruit and ornamental trees, many varieties of palm trees, succulents and cacti grown in containers, and tropical perennials as the understory. A shaded brick path leads around the garden and to the house and outbuildings which include an orchid house. The garden is located several blocks from the ocean which protects it from winds and salt spray but hurricanes, especially Wilma in 2005, have been destructive and the garden has had to be reconstructed. The variety of shrubs, tropical perennials, trees, bromeliads and cacti and succulents planted by the owner and her horticulturalist is extensive.
The Mediterranean Revival style house was designed by Palm Beach architect Marion Syms Wyeth in 1925 and designated a Palm Beach landmark in 2001. The original lots were one-quarter acre but a previous owner bought the adjacent property and demolished that house, providing the site for the main garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Count and Countess Carlo Filipponi (former owners, 1925- ); Mrs. Granville Morse (former owner); Mr. and Mrs. Thomas McKnight (former owners, 1988-1997); Marion Sims Wyeth (architect, 1925); Smith Architectural Group, Inc.

The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
Most gardens in Charleston, South Carolina's historic district are small pocket gardens: this property has a half-acre divided into seven distinct garden rooms in addition to the 1806 Federal style house and the 1823 Gothic Revival style brick carriage house. When the current owners found this property in 1993 both buildings were derelict and nothing remained of the historic garden which was an asphalt parking lot. After the buildings were restored the owners removed the asphalt and underlying cobblestones, brought in topsoil and compost, and installed boxwood and other hedges and picket fencing painted dark green to divide the property into garden rooms. Although influenced by French and Baroque styles the formal structure predominantly resembles Italianate style gardens, with a color palette of green and white with accents in pink and purple from azaleas, camellias, crape myrtles and roses. Walkways are comprised of dark gray crushed slag, old bricks found on the property and elsewhere are stood on end and used as edging, and a brick Gothic style folly used as a garden shed was built.
The long driveway is the main axis, comprised of two cobblestone runways set in St. Augustine grass with globe-shaped boxwood hedges on either side. A formal parterre garden is along one side (opposite the main house) with two beds in the shape of Celtic crosses, a repeating shape in other garden rooms. There are Luytens benches at either end, and a hedge of alternating holly and cypress along the property line. The next room is known as the sitting garden where there is another Luytens bench under an arbor of confederate jasmine, a wall sculpture of Bacchus and a table and chairs for dining. In the back corner of the property there is a shade garden with tropical plants in a looser, less rectilinear style than the other rooms with irregular bluestone paving. The car park garden at the end of the driveway has the Gothic folly, brick edging and wrought iron gates with the same quatrefoil design as the carriage house.
The carriage house faces the formal garden which has four quadrants edged in boxwood, each with a standard bay tree, with a circular bed of crossed boxwood hedges in the center. The rose garden, outlined with boxwood, is in the shape of a teardrop or paisley motif and has a 19th century Celtic cross used as a trellis for noisette roses. The herb garden with remnants of the brick wall of the historic kitchen outbuilding is tucked between the carriage house and the main house.
Persons associated with the garden include: John Harleston (former owner, before 1795); John Rutledge (former owner, circa 1795); Isaac Motte Dart (former owner, 1801-1815); Edward Washington North (former owner, 1824-1845); members of the Simons family (former owners, 1845-1859); American Missionary Association (former owner, 1930-1950); Palmer College (former owner, 1954-1973); Historic Charleston Foundation (former owner, until 1993); Richard Marks (conservator of the house, 1993-1996); Eugene Gaillard Johnson (landscape designer, 1993- ).

General:
The multi-acre property along the Little Blanco River was ranched and farmed for five generations by members of the Birdseil family before the current owners acquired it and began renovating a native stone house, a half-timbered and adobe house, and outbuildings for their ranching and a quarter horse operation. The gardens they have installed include native plants and other species adapted to a generally hot and dry climate with unpredictable rainfall. The modernized buildings, outbuildings, stone wall and fencing blend with the landscape and make use of native cedar, rocks and fossils found on the property. Shade is provided by fig trees planted by the owners, live oaks and arbors constructed of rough cedar logs. A native garden to the east of the main house includes Mexican plum, native persimmon, acacia, Mexican salvia, agave cactus and prickly pear. On the south side of the house a bird sanctuary and herb garden contain more drought tolerant salvias, daisies, prairie clovers, silver germander, allium, rosemary, thyme and sage, with an old livestock watering trough now used by birds. A bird bath centers a circular old-fashioned garden with beds of larkspur, poppies, catnip, Shasta daisies, old roses, salvia, gaura and euphorbia. Stockade fences are draped in morning glory and queen's crown vine, another native plant.
Along the entrance road there is a circa 1870 cemetery with the remains of six members of a pioneer family that drowned trying to cross the Little Blanco River.
Persons associated with the garden include: Herbert Bindseil and members of the Bindseil family (former owners, 1860-1991), Joe Brooks (architect, 1991-present), Sarah Westkaemper Lake (landscape designer, 2000-present).

General:
Located on two plus acres in a historic district which is both on the local and the National Register of Historic Places in San Antonio, Texas, Monte Vista Garden is in many respects a tribute to the past.The genteel Southern character home, with its graceful garden design, is in the neighborhood in which the current owners spent their childhoods. It was renewed in 1999 to echo and highlight the region, culture and personal tastes that influence the site.Through the use of terracing, low stone retaining walls, and concentrations of trees and plants in rectilinear beds, the area was divided into five gracious and well-defined rectangular gardens.
The front garden greets people with a variety of naturally occurring oak, laurel and elm trees of native species scattered throughout the large rectangular front lawn that is screened from the street by a wall of local limestone. Beds of redbud, nandina and liriope have been planted near the front entrance while large Italian jardinières planted with annuals stand on either side of the front door. On the home's east side is a screened veranda opening onto a long walkway bordered by groupings of plants massed together to create splashes of color and texture. A runnel that separates two of the gardens, begins at a gently splashing fountain at the back of the house then travels across Texas limestone the width of the garden to a rectangular pond. It expresses the precious, subtle qualities of water in the arid South Texas landscape and provides a welcome and peaceful respite from the sunny, hot climate. On the west side of the house loquat trees line the property and provide a shady intimate area containing a fountain constructed from an antique terracotta jar.
The long garden at the back of the house is a symmetrical grove of honey locusts as well as loquats and elephant ears. A limestone retaining wall creates a division between the gardens. An arbor has been constructed at the end of the Long garden providing a convenient place to park with a crushed Texas granite path leading to the house. A brick path leads from the Long garden to the pool garden completed in 2008. A bathhouse rehabilitated from an older limestone structure, greenhouse and working zone for garden prep and storage were added here along with a limestone-edged salt water swimming pool bordered by antique oil jars containing ferns, irises and agapanthus. Also added to the new pool garden was an adjacent terrace and rustic columned pergola.
The owners note that the garden is a work in progress and plan to further reduce turf in the future to support water conservation.
Persons associated with the garden include: R.L. White (former owner, 1916-1956), John Bitter (former owner, 1956-1999), Reed Hilderbrand Associates (landscape architects, 1999-present), Lake/Flato (main house renovation architect, 1999), Don B. McDonald (outbuildings renovation architect, 2000).

United States of America -- Maryland -- Baltimore County -- Relay
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and other information.
General:
Glennhurst dates back to 1890 when the property was purchased by Alexander Robinson White. It consisted of many outbuildings including barns for the cows, a chicken house, and several small greenhouses. Some of the ornamental shrubbery that still stands today was propagated from cuttings and raised in these houses. Japanese tree peonies now flourish where the greenhouses once stood. Situated by the main entrance, is a water pump set over a stone lined hand dug well. When the pump was in use, the Whites shared this water with passing hikers traveling the steep hill to and from Patapsco State Park. Its availability was made known by a little sign along a pathway from the main road. In 1929 a road was established on the southwest side of the home to accommodate parking for family and friends who attended the funeral service of Mrs. Mary Louisa Carter White which was held at her home.
Glennhurst is situated at the top of a hill which at one time afforded you a clear view of the Patapsco River. What was once a pasture for cows has been developed into a woodland setting enabling deer to prosper. The property is surrounded by an eight foot high deer fence which protects the gardens. A meandering stream, just downhill, forms the northeast boundary of the property.
The property features a Magnolia grandiflora propagated from seed by the granddaughter of Mrs. Mary Louisa Carter White and old fashioned pink climbing roses planted by the water pump by Mrs. Mary Louisa Carter White. The driveway encircles a Japanese cryptomeria that was planted in 1981. The original lilacs and peonies still adorn the main lawn. An allee has been created by the white pine and hemlock trees, which leads to a wall of Dr. Van Fleet climbing pink roses, European larch, Cedrus atlanticus, and Chinaquapin. The old cow barn provides a backdrop for blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries planted by the current owner.
Persons associated with the garden include: Alexander R. White & Mary White (former owners, 1890-1932), John G. White & Hannah I. White (former owners, 1932-1965).
