General note:
Rockmarge was the North Shore ocean-front estate of William Henry Moore (1848-1923) and Ada Small Moore (1858-1955). The flower beds were lavishly planted in geometric shapes edged by pruned hedges, connected by swaths of grass, some of which were walkways of considerable length. The estate also had a lily pond, lotus collection, willow walk, rock gardens, herbaceous borders, stone steps, walls and walkways, and wilder areas.
William H. Moore was known as a robber baron who, with his brother James Hobart Moore (1852 - 1916), bought, merged and sold companies, including the National Biscuit Company and the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway. He took up horses in retirement and became a four-in-hand driver of international renown. Ada Small Moore was a member of the North Shore Garden Club and a patron of the arts.
The carriage house of the estate was renovated into a single family home in the 1960s.
Persons associated with the garden are: William H. Moore and Ada Small Moore (former owners, dates unknown).

The Merrill House (Seattle, Washington)
United States of America -- Washington -- King County -- Seattle
Scope and Contents:
The folders include work sheets, narrative history by Mrs. Corydon (Eulalie) Wagner and copies of articles.
Reproduction Note:
Two slides copied from Washington State Historical Society collections, Tacoma, Washington; four from Mrs. Corydon Wagner collection; two from Treasury of American Gardens; one from The American Woman's Garden; and three from unknown sources. One photoprint is copy of original 1928 photoprint.
General:
According to Mrs. Corydon (Eulalie) Wagner, the one acre, European-style garden, was seen at its best when seen from above. A city garden enclosed by high cement walls, it consisted of formal pathways of white pebbles; eight flower beds outlined with dwarf box; and a round pool surrounded by a square qrass bed and parterres. The beds displayed various color schemes of tulips, followed by a "Mille Fleur" perennial garden in the summer. Tea roses were added during the 1920s. After the death of Mrs. Merrill in the 1930s, the family opened the house for charitable organizations, particularly those in which she took an active part. During World War II, Victory Garden vegetables filled in where lilies and holly-hocks grew. The perennial borders were slightly transformed by using annuals, and after the bay trees died in the wooden boxes, they were replaced with tree-tiered topiaries of Ficus. During the 1960s, the Merrill family visited Versailles and its box borders. In order to eliminate the upkeep of the "Mille Fleur" summer garden, Thomas Church designed a box parterre, a miniature version of those at Villandry--eliminating much of Shipman's perennial borders. Kevin Harvey currently plants strongly-shaped and colored perennials into the gravel beds to add year-round interest.
Persons associated with the garden include: Richard Dwight Merrill (former owner, 1910-1964); Eulalie Wagner (former owner, ?-1991); The Merrill Foundation (owners of 1/2 the original property); Charles A. Platt (architect, landscape designer, 1910); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, 1915); Thomas Dolliver Church (landscape architect, 1960s); and Kevin Harvey (gardener and designer, 2004).

United States of America -- Washington -- Pierce County -- Tacoma
Lakewold (Tacoma, Washington)
Scope and Contents:
13 4 X 6in. photographic prints, 11 postcards, approximately 88 35mm slides (originals and reproductions), and 2 folders. Folder 1 includes extensive information about the garden (newspaper clippings, annual meeting brochures, etc.), correspondence between Mrs. Corydon Wagner, a copy of a 1930 booklet created by the Tacoma Garden Club for the 1930 Garden Club of America annual meeting, and Eleanor Weller and research on findings for the Olmsted Brothers.
Biographical / Historical:
Eulalie Merrill (1904-1991) was born on October 16, 1904 in Seattle to Dwight and Eula Lee Merrill. She was an avid golf player who held The Pacific Northwest Ladies title for three straight years. She and Corydon Wagner acquired the Lakewold property in 1938 and gardening became more important than golf. She received the Garden Club of America Medal of Merit in 1968, the Montague Award in 1978, the Creative Leadership award in 1984, and the Zone Horticultural Achievement Award also in 1984. Mrs. Wagner gave the gardens to The Friends of Lakewold, an organization with the specific purpose of assuming responsibility for its care.
Varying Form:
Inglewood, formerly known as.
General:
Located on ten acres, this garden is a collection of several gardens surrounding a Georgian home on Gravelly Lake in Lakewold, a suburb of Tacmoa. Mr. and Mrs. Cordydon Wagner purchased the estate in 1938. The perimeter fence, gate and brick walkway were part of the early design. However, the original designer is unknown. In the 1950s, landscape architect Thomas Church redesigned the gardens to include a quatrefoil-shaped swimming pool, a shade garden around a 200-year-old Douglas fir (considered a "wolf" tree), a lookout to the rock gardens, waterfalls and pools leading to the lake. Church discouraged the development of a rock garden since it would cause the neglect of the formal areas, but Mrs. Wagner insisted.

The property is dominated by giant Douglas Fir trees and features an extensive collection of rhododendron. It features a brick walkway leading to a vine-covered summer house. The walk is bordered by boxwood parterres, one shaped in a quatrefoil which repeats the design of the swimming pool. The pool is on an axis with a view of Mt. Rainier framed by trees across Gravelly Lake. The garden also features an Elizabethan knot garden planted with herbs, a rock garden, and an exotic tree collection. When the garden was redesigned in the 1950s by Thomas Church, 200 firs were felled to balance the woods with the openess of the site. Dressing rooms and a kitchen were added to the teahouse and gazebo, the port-cochere was removed from the house and a motor court was added to accomodate space for twenty cars, and a glassed-in room with a Plexiglass roof was added to the side of the house that faced the swimming pool.

Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Alexander (former owner, before 1924), Mrs. Evertt Griggs (former owner, 1924), Mr. and Mrs. Corydon Wagner, Jr. (former owner, 1938), The Friends of Lakewold Foundation (owner, circa 1989), Thomas Church (landscape architect, 1953)

There is no direct connection between Mr. and Mrs. Alexander and the Olmsted firm. A tenuous link may exist through E.C. Griggs (job number 3725). Mr. Everett Griggs wrote to the Olmsted firm, specifically to James Dawson, in January of 1911, sending them a topographical survey, which he had prepared for the property. He noted that he had been in touch with Alex MacDougall, superintendent of the Thorne estate who had worked on several Olmsted gardens in the area. The next letter in the file is from May 1923 from Alex MacDougall (working in the Highlands in Seattle) to James Dawson.

Provenance:

Hieronimus Garden (Arch Cape, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Clatsop County -- Arch Cape
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan, detailed plans for the entire garden and the garden railroad, a plant list, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This small garden near the sea has been under development since 1990. The main garden is in the informal Pacific Northwest style, using native plants combined with non-natives. The plants include those known to do well near the sea and experiments with others of unknown salt tolerance. The front of the house has a foundation planting of various Rhododendron yakushimanum hybrids, and there is a large collection of hydrangeas, both species and hybrids, many of which were propagated by the owner. A moon-gated arbor, copied from one in an old Chinese garden, leads to the enclosed portion of the garden and the prime attraction: the garden railroad. It is a miniature landscape featuring rocky cliffs and ravines, roads, bridges, dry-laid and mortared rock retaining walls, alpine plants, and dwarf conifers as a setting for scale model (1:24) buildings and a G scale train, which is battery operated and radio controlled. In addition to a steady stream of individuals, the garden has been visited by the Rock Garden Society, the American Conifer Society, numerous garden clubs, and landscaping and gardening classes. The garden is open to visitors by appointment.
Persons associated with the garden include: Robert Astbury (former owner, mid-1800s); J. M. Shank (former owner, 1932-1945); Kent Price (former owner, 1945-?); and Eleanor Stith (former owner, ca. 1970).

The house is situated on the far most southern boundary, maximizing the land for a garden on its northern portion. Part of the garden is situated among a grove of mature Sitka spruce, with an understory of native plants. This area is known informally as the "Woodland Garden," while a sunnier area across the road is known as the "Formal Garden." The "Formal Garden" has a landscaped lawn with a wide variety of perennials, bulbs, fruit trees, ornamental shrubs, and Japanese maples. Part of this garden area is also used for vegetables and composting.

Scope and Contents:

Varying Form:
Sampson Beasley Garden.
General:
Ample rainfall and favorable growing conditions are evident in the lush 5 to 7-acre garden that features naturalistic plantings of shrubs, perennials and annuals that blend into the woodlands of native Pacific Madrone and cedar trees. There are many garden rooms with distinctive and whimsical features, including a frog grotto, a walkway made of the bottoms of recycled glass bottles, a blue garden of shiny orbs, and a more conventional walkway lined with peonies, beds with late-blooming red perennials, a rose and yew garden, fish pond, and a shade garden planted in hostas, ferns and hydrangeas. Native rocks are placed strategically in garden beds and used in an alpine rock wall. When the garden was created with landscape designer Michael Schultz plants of varying shapes were selected to create complex visual patterns, and located where the growing conditions would be favorable to the species.
Landscape designer Michael Schultz creates gardens that feature varying textures and colors of plant material, and innovative uses of hardscape elements.
Persons associated with the garden include Dave Green (previous owner, 1970-1980); Michael Schultz (landscape designer); Cynthia Woodyard (landscape designer).
