Bowman Garden (Bellevue, Washington)
United States of America -- Washington -- King County -- Bellevue
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, a plant list, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
The 4.5-acre Bowman Garden was designed by landscape architect Robert Chittock in 1982. The driveway is lined with a high boxwood hedge on one side and a small orchard on the other leading to a circular planting of towering magnolias, cedars, rhododendrons, peonies, and other plants. The surrounding brick walkway is enhanced by 'Seafoam' tree roses in large planters with petunias and variegated vinca. Passing under a grape arbor, one enters the boxwood garden, each bordered area a masterpiece of design, filled with white roses and seasonal white flowers. Antique pear trees stand as sentinels on all four sides of the boxwood garden, which is centered by a cloverleaf pool. Up ivy-lined brick stairs is the sundial garden with surrounding dogwoods. Beyond is a clay tennis court with a glass-ceilinged arbor and small lion fountain, serving as a rest pavilion. Beautiful plantings of specimen magnolias, cedars, maples, and a gum sapwood surround the home, with a magnificent lawn sweeping down to the water's edge to views of Mt. Rainier and Seattle.
Persons associated with the garden include: Robert W. Chittock, Landscape Architect (1982); and Ellie Hensel (gardener).

General:
The Chapman Garden is located on the approximately one half acre site of the Griswald House, which was designed by architect Stayton Nunn in 1929. The present garden was started in 2002 when the current owners moved in and removed the original plant material.
The front garden is an expanse of St. Augustine grass with linear shrubbery borders aligning the house. The beds consist of Asiatic jasmine ground covers, azaleas, and Japanese boxwood. The back garden, accessible through the house or through one of two white garden gates on the east and west sides of the house, includes a fountain flanked with foxtail ferns, monkey grass, alyssum, kale, and variegated liriope. The fountain serves as the focal point and sets apart the small garden from the larger back garden. This entire area is hedged with cherry laurel to create a wall of privacy. The main garden is separated by ligustrum, Japanese viburnum, and Japanese boxwood. The larger back garden is accessible through an iron gate flanked by brick columns capped with antique white urns of foxtail ferns. The basket weave patio is aligned with a bed of Dwarf gardenia, flax lily, white salvia, and lantana. To the south of this bed is a rectangle of St. Augustine grass that is bordered by a two foot high brick wall with plantings of azaleas, Japanese boxwood, Dwarf gardenia, flax lily, boxwood topiaries, Japanese ewe topiaries, night blooming jasmine, and spiraea. Seasonal white annuals are introduced at the forefront of the brick wall. Petunias, kale, alyssum, and geraniums are often planted. The grassy area was named the badminton court by architect Shannon Sasser in 2001 when he worked on the remodeling of the house with the owners because it is the perfect regulation size for a badminton court. Two circular brick patios flank the grassy area with curved iron benches outlining the space, both which are original to the garden, along with two limestone based tables centered on each. The limestone table bases are actually birdbaths. Underneath the arbor of roses is a shaded patio with planters of topiaries of English ivy flanking French doors into the game room.
The current owners bought the house in 2001 and sought to rehabilitate both the house and the garden. Many people have thought the garden was designed by Pat Fleming, but there is no documentation to prove this. The original plans for the show the brickwork for the garden. The patio between the house and the "badminton court" was added at some point. The entire back of the house is open to the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Cronin (former owners, 1962-2001); Stayton Nunn (architect 1929, 1933-additions); Shannon Sasser (architect-renovations, 2001/2002); Steve Henry (landscape architect, 2001/2002); Cedar Baldridge (landscape designer, 2006).

General:
The mock Tudor house was built by the owners of this small urban property in 1993 and the gardens include favorite plants that are mostly gray, pink, mauve or purple, an award-winning collection of cactus and succulents, and accessories from parents' gardens. The front garden has dwarf artemesia, lantana, dusty miller, crepe myrtle, pond cypress, holly and hawthorn with salvia and petunias adding more color. There is a lush curved border near the street that screens the house, planted with cypress, firebush, spirea, salvia and deep purple wandering Jew. Stepping stones lead to the back garden which features a Roman pool that is shallow at both ends. Flat Austin stone forms a patio at one end of the pool with a raised stone bed with knock-out roses along one side. There are many planted containers of cactus and bougainvillea, shaded beds with annual begonia, Lenten rose, azalea, ferns and hydrangeas, and a sunny wall with climbing silverthorn and cactus along the other side or the pool. Pots of succulents and cactus fill the back porch.

General:
This Modernist garden was created right after World War II, designed by Christopher Tunnard. It still survives today, perhaps the only existing commissioned landscape design by the man who influenced many of the United States most celebrated postwar architects and landscape architects. At only 65' x 42', the garden has an extreme austerity in design with a hint of luxury in its fountains, thick hedges and sculpture. The plants are cut and trimmed into an ordained shape, and the pattern is designed to be seen from the ground, where its curves interlock and turn back on themselves. Only two kinds of trees are used - lime (Tilia) and arbor vitae (Thuja); and three kinds of permanent plants - ivy (Hedera), box (Buxus) and yew (Taxus). The lime trees will eventually be pleached into an architectural block to throw the ground pattern into even greater contrast. The ivy is in slightly raised mounds, edged in places with small summer flowers. The bedding plants are purple and white petunias with carnations and lemon-yellow thunbergias." The sculpture, 'Chimerical Font,' by Jean Arp, is golden bronze centered on a plinth in a black lacquered rectangular pool. The other pools (two circular, one biomorphic) are shallow and painted white. Of note are the unusual shapes of the pruned boxwoods in the shapes of question marks and semi-colons; the colorful flowers; and the 6th linden along the left and end wall, now covered in Boston ivy, and originally painted white to complete a design that very much relied on strong figure-ground relationship.
Christopher Tunnard (1910-1979) was born in Canada, moved to England in 1929 and received a diploma from the Royal Horticultural Society the following year. The period of the eclectic Arts and Crafts movement (which he characterized as "romantic trivialization" of garden design) prompted him to introduce his Modernist views of landscape design. This approach avoided decoration, sentimentality and classical allusion "in favor of functional minimalist designs that provided a friendly and hospitable milieu for rest and recreation." After 10 years practicing garden and landscape work, he immigrated to America at the invitation of Walter Gropius to teach at Harvard's Graduate School of Design (1938-1943). Following the War, Tunnard taught city planning at Yale, advancing to professor and chairman of this department; he did little garden design from that point forward, making this 1949 garden probably one of his last commissions. For the final thirty years of his life, Tunnard put his energies into urban planning and the preservation of historic buildings; his publications in this area include "Man-made America: Chaos or Control?" (1963) which won the 1964 National Book Award in Science, Philosophy and Religion. It is perhaps ironic that Christopher Tunnard ended up of very much the same sentiment as his American patron, Mrs. George W. (Katherine) Warren, founder of the Preservation Society of Newport County (1945). In "Pioneers of American Landscape Design," (2000), Lance Neckar notes that "by the time of his death, he had come full circle to be identified with conservation-and-preservation-oriented attributes toward city revitalization which were antithetical to the Modern movement" that Tunnard had originally espoused.
Tunnard's patrons, George and Katherine Warren, who purchased the property on Mill Street in 1933, chose a part of Newport that was then considered "the other side of the tracks" by their social set, most of whom resided out on Ocean Drive. In New York, where the couple lived "off season," Katherine Warren collected modern art and was on the Advisory Committee of the Museum of Modern Art. Interesting to note that the garden was commissioned in 1949 and distinguished by its functional, minimalist modern design in sharp contrast with its early Federal-style house. The Warrens also added two glass-enclosed rooms on the first and second floors of their home on the garden side, presumably to enjoy this new garden to its full extent. Mrs. Warren died in 1976, bequeathing her home to the Preservation Society of Newport County, which moved its offices to this location in 1977. While the Preservation Society of Newport County owned the property, the garden was heavily shaded by a large beech tree and had become overgrown. It was maintained as they found it without major renovation. The current owner moved into the Mill Street house in 1994 and restored the Tunnard garden in 2001 and has proven to be a conscientious caretaker of this rare, nationally significant garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Tanner Family (former owners, 1776-1807); Samuel F. Gardner (former owner, 1807-1809); Robert Lawton (former owner, 1809-1810); Penelope Lawton (former owner, 1810-1822); Reverend Samuel Austin (former owner, 1822-1826); Francis Henderson (former owner, 1826-1857); Fanny S. Brinley (former owner, 1857-1863); Sallie C. Lawrence (former owner, 1863-1886); Allen G. Paul (former owner, 1886-1916); Florence S. Paul (former owner, 1916-1932); George and Katherine Warren (former owners, 1932-1977); Preservation Society of Newport County (former owner, 1977-1994); Christopher Tunnard (landscape designer, 1949); Eusebio Pleitez (gardener, 2001- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, historical information and photocopies of the landscape architect's drawings for the 1924 garden.
General:
Wilpen Hall was built by architect George S. Orth (d.1911) in the late 1890's as a summer 'cottage' estate for the industrialist William Penn Snyder, with its original formal gardens designed by William Pitkin, Jr. and Seward H. Mott and in place by 1924. The original 162-acre property was a self-sustaining estate that employed twenty persons to maintain the terraced formal gardens and parterres based on Victorian English garden design, the sweeping lawns, a woodlands garden, proprietary gas and water resources, and planted fields.
Now 56 acres of the terraced property still feature distinct garden areas: a formal white garden planted with shrubs including boxwood, white pine and dogwood, iris and allium bulbs, perennial phlox and annuals including zinnia, nicotiana, cleome, dusty miller and petunias. A lengthy rose border along a wall is planted with floribunda climbing roses; a sloping rock garden is planted with arborvitae, dwarf cedar and dwarf Andromeda, and mounding perennials including stonecrop, sedums and lavender. Hydrangea standards and peony beds remain from the original 1920s gardens. Further from the house there are woodland gardens with gingko, maple, sycamore and paw paw forming the upper story that is under planted with bulbs, perennials and ground covers.
Wilpen Hall was listed in the National Register of Historic Places April 20, 2011 and was awarded an historic landmark plaque in 2001 from the List of Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation.
Persons associated with the garden include: William Penn Snyder (former owner, 1898-1931); William Penn Snyder, Jr. (former owner, 1931-1975); William Pitkin, Jr. and Seward H. Mott (landscape architects, 1924); Donald Wilson (gardener, 1956-present); Cathy and Paul Kentzel (managers, 2006-present); Travis Wanner (arborist, 2006-present).
