Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and narrative description, a copy of the garden plan, and a plant list. The garden is noted for its Edwardian strolling garden, boxwood plantings, and roses, all complementing the arts and crafts style lakeside cottage.
General:
The gardens of Tatterdemalion, situated on a two-acre site, are designed to complement this 1907 arts and crafts style lakeside cottage. The wrap-around porch is surrounded by a stone terrace edged with tea roses and a lavender hedge. Steps to the west lead across the drive to an Edwardian strolling garden, bordered by an antique 1850 wrought iron fence, acquired in Madison, Indiana. Gently curving paths radiate from a circular path which encloses a weeping crabapple tree surrounded by lamb's ears. A low box hedge curves around in a flowing line to define the lawn. A semi-circle of purple lilacs and white Blanc Double de Coubert roses frame a bronze statue of Mercury.
Hemlocks and viburnums screen the adjoining property and form the backround for antique rose bushes, the mainstay of the garden. Flowering continues throughout the summer with the addition of pastel old-fashioned flowers. A dooryard fern garden on the north side of the house faces a small orchard. To the east is a Victorian reflecting pool centered in a semi-circular enclosure of shrubs. A wisteria and rose-covered arbor frames the view into the garden.
Persons associated with the property include: C. R. Cran (former owner, 1907-1939); Avery Sherry (former owner, 1939-1957); William Beverung (former owner, 1957-1986); Judson Griggs (landscape architect, 1987-1998); Michael Sproule (consultant, 1995-1997); Kyle Johnson (hardscape gardener, 1998); and Trevor Johnson (hardscape gardener, 1998).

General:
"This 1.5 acre plot was carved out of a 21-acre tract owned by the current owner's grandparents. The house was built for the current owner's parents. Old coal mine tipple timbers were used as beams in one room and in covered porches of the house. The original owners had gardens, but when the current owners moved in in 1986 the existing gardens were expanded and renovated. Beds were double dug and trees and shrubs were added. Plant features include peonies, hostas, hemerocallis, and rudbeckia. Boxwood plantings and a woodland garden are also featured."
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. L. Newton Thomas (former owners, 1938-1985); L. T. Bengston (architect, 1937-38); Alvin McCorkle, Sr. (contractor, 1937-38); Paul D.

General:
Although the 1949 white clapboard house was sited far back from the road one of the principle aims of the garden design for this approximately one acre property has been to provide privacy from the road and from neighboring properties. Beginning work in 1988 the owners developed new garden areas by: adding hardscape features including a deck behind the house and newly-designed curved wall patios in front of the house, grading to direct water run-off away from the house and garden beds, re-purposing a small former playhouse as a potting shed at the end of a new bluestone path, and installing an irrigation system. Then more extensive plantings could be installed, focusing on creating four seasons of interest, using more native plants, attracting songbirds, butterflies and wildlife, developing a seamless tapestry of all the garden areas, and providing views of the vernacular garden from the house, patios, covered porch and deck. The view from the street was also considered and a timber terraced perennial bed was installed on the street side of the shrub screen bed.
A small oval perennial bed in front of the house was enlarged to wrap around the side of the house, forming an L-shaped shrub, rose and mixed perennial garden. Pansies provide winter bloom, followed by spring bulbs, peonies, spireas and iris. In summer and fall perennials include day-lilies, bee balm, hibiscus and Shasta daisies. Shrub roses were added to the old roses from previous plantings that were re-positioned. Another smaller L-shaped bed along the side driveway includes a tower of stacked large flower pots that are planted with seasonal annuals. A shade border follows the curve of the other patio and because this side of the house is downhill and wetter plantings include red twig dogwoods and marsh marigolds. Two large oasis flower beds were installed around trees in the front lawn, a crimson king maple and a mature oak, with hellebores for winter, and narcissus, ferns, hostas, and Japanese anemones for successive blooms and foliage.
The roadside garden has a screen of native cedars, forsythias, hydrangeas and lilacs, under-planted with hostas, perennial hibiscus and daffodils. A white garden that can be viewed across the lawn from the house at the end of the day includes a white flowering redbud tree, white bleeding heart, woodland phlox, wood asters, candytuft and tiarella. The potting shed garden was overgrown with shrubs and vines that were cleared away, to be replaced by transplanted rhododendrons and a tree peony, perennials and hydrangeas as well as the bluestone path, a native stone wall, and a bench. At the back of the house the entire back yard was regraded and had drains installed, the latticework under the deck was replaced with planters, and a stone patio was built for sitting in the perennial and shrub garden with roses that is bordered by boxwood. At the back end of the property there is a wooded area with a ravine.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles and Mary Frances Brooks (former owners, 1947-1954); George and Patty Jones Jr. (former owners, 1954-1987); Lynne Schwartz-Barker (landscape designer, 2002-2015); Mark Blumenstein (sculptor); Jeff Fetty (sculptor).

Sabine Hall (Warsaw, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Richmond County -- Warsaw
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies from publications.
General:
Sabine Hall is a plantation residence in the Georgian style built by Robert "King" Carter for his son Colonel Landon Carter, circa 1730, on a property of 4,000 acres, in an axial plan with formal parterre gardens. Sabine Hall was named for Horace's Roman villa and passed down through the Carter family for nine generations. The family kept the original geometric plan intact, although not all the beds were planted over time. Facing the Rappahannock River, and encompassing several hundred feet are six terraced beds with connecting grass ramps, with a centered gravel walk nearly six feet wide leading from the porch steps into the first terrace. Gravel walks continued to at least the second and third terraces. The first terrace, planted in grass, was called a bowling green. There were formal flower beds planted in a symmetrical English style on the second terrace. The third terrace was likely planted in small fruits and medicinal herbs, the fourth and fifth terraces planted in vegetables, and the sixth with fruit trees. There was another vegetable garden (the kitchen garden) planted with necessities that did not conform to the aesthetics of the parterres, planted beyond the boxwood hedges, out of sight from the house. The fifth and sixth terraces were not maintained into the 20th century, but the outlines remain. The borders were hedged in boxwood. The front portico of the house has leads to a planted lawn surrounded and interplanted with both native and imported tree species.
Colonel Landon Carter is presumed to have been responsible for the initial geometrical design of the garden, based on 17th century English and Continental precepts. Indentured English gardeners may have been early workers, as well as slaves passed down through family bequests. The third owner, Robert Wormeley Carter, named slave gardeners in his will of 1794.
Flowers mentioned by Landon Carter include bulbs, roses, and wildflowers. Vegetables included artichokes, French beans, broccoli, cabbages, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers, endives, lettuce, melons, mushrooms, onions, parsley, peas, potatoes, radishes, savoys, spinach, and turnips.
Following ownership by Colonel Landon Carter (1710-1778) and his wife Elizabeth Wormeley of Rosegill, the estate passed to Robert Wormeley Carter and his wife Winifred Beale; then to their son Colonel Landon Carter II and his wife Katharine Tayloe of Mount Airy; next to Robert Wormeley Carter II and his wife Elizabeth Merrie Tayloe of Mount Airy. Ownership then skipped a generation and went to Robert Carter Wellford (a grandson) in 1861, who married Elizabeth Harrison of Berkeley. She died in 1919, leaving Sabine Hall to two sons, Armistead Nelson Wellford and his wife Katherine Davis and William Harrison Wellford and his wife Ida Beverly. The property was passed on to ensuing sons, the Reverend Dabney S. Wellford and Hill B. Wellford.
Persons associated with the garden include the Carter family (1730) and their descendents.
