General:
Meldhaven Home and Gardens is situated on the 129- acre former H.G. Hill estate located six miles west of downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The property was subdivided in 1995 into estate-sized lots and named Hill Place, leaving the existing Hill home, mature shade trees, white rail fencing, and pastoral land bordering the railroad tracks and Richland Creek.

Meldhaven was partially completed in 1998 by the original owner before the current owners purchased the property in 1999. They began remodeling the home and grounds, adding a swimming pool, pool house, brick walls, garden beds, and soil amendments. The gardens feature a number of propagated rare plants, architectural collections, and also contain pollinator, cutting, and vegetable gardens. The entire property incorporates composting and is cultivated using exclusively organic practices.

Along the front driveway entrance to the home, mature trees native to the original Hill property divide a canopy for an understory bed filled with perennials. On the driveway to the Northern side of the property, specimen trees like the holly tea olive, dwarf-grafted umbrella catalpa tree, hinoki cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa), china firs, and junipers are interspersed. The loss of a large maple tree facilitated the creation of border and island stumpery beds gathered from a collection of stumps found after years of being submerged underwater. The stumps were placed in beds with architectural rocks, specimen Japanese maples, hellebores, an apricot tree, dwarf bamboo, and ferns. One of the bed features wave walls, with a plaque and a quote by G.W. Carver.

Along the Eastern woodland border sit three beehives shadowed by brown magnolias. Ferns, mosses, and an assortment of perennials are planted along the border, with stumps and rocks interspersed throughout. A path leads to a large compost pile hidden between the border and brick wall. A fountain repurposed from an antique millstone sits nearby. Another path leads to an 18th century pigeonary filled with ferns.

The backyard, swimming pool, pool house, and pergola are enclosed by a brick wall. A sculpture by Tom Rice is surrounded by a bed of shrubs and perennials. White hydrangea blooms near the perennials and shrubs, interspersed with sculptures and architectural pieces. Border beds surrounding the pool include antique planters filled with succulents, a sculpture by Charlie Hunt, a miniature boxwood collection, and containers of exotic plants. The rear wall of the pool house is trellised with mandevilla vines overlooking a pollinator garden. The pergola near the main house shelters a container garden of succulents and cacti during the warmer summer months. During the winter, the greenhouse is used for housing container plants and growing fennel lettuces, fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Persons associated with the garden include: Stephen Wells (landscape architect, 1999); Lisa Z. Manning (current owner and horticulturist, 2000); Charlie Hunt (sculptor); Keith Merry (ironwork); Tom Rice (sculptor).

Owings Mills -- Mrs. Hathaway's Garden

Provenance:
Garden Club of Twenty  Search this
Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Mrs. Hathaway's Garden (Owings Mills, Maryland)
United States of America -- Maryland -- Baltimore -- Owings Mills
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
With only a rudimentary plan at the start, one owner has been gardening this 13.5 acre property since 1953, appreciating and augmenting the beauty of the natural setting. First, a house was built among aged beech trees already growing on the undeveloped site and then the undergrowth in woodlands was cleared and three foot borders were dug at the edges, intended for cultivated flowers and shrubs. The borders were widened, eventually to twelve feet and dogwood trees were planted under taller native trees (over 100 to 250 years old) including American beech, oaks and tulip poplars, appreciated for their lacy effect in spring and color in fall. Evergreens and other perennials with variegated foliage were planted in darker, shady areas to mimic dappled sunlight, a technique the owner learned in Scotland. A spring on the property was dammed to create a pond and a cut made by a bulldozer was turned into a spring bulb garden planted with daffodils. The gardens have been worked for sixty years and have changed every few years as trees grow or die off, affecting the amount of light reaching the understories. Cultivars that grow successfully here are used repeatedly, such as New Dawn rose varieties, and this gives coherence to the large property.
On the west side of the house there is a formal kitchen garden comprised of four bow-knot shaped boxwood parterres with a holly standard in the center of each. In the kitchen garden beds there are rose bushes, flowers, herbs and lettuces. A stone path leads to rose and cutting garden beds, and beyond them a former children's playhouse supports climbing roses, with peonies planted at the foundation. There is a small greenhouse tucked in next to the main house, planted containers along the driveway, and an espaliered tree on the side of the house. To the east there are additional deep flower borders fronting the woodlands. Two long rows of double sets of free-standing trellises covered with roses and clematis looked like railroad tracks when they were bare but now look more like pergolas as the vines meet over the grass walkway. A blue-painted teak bench was placed at the edge of the woodlands, copying an idea from Hidcote in England. Ornate cast iron gates that are a focal point in the back lawn mark the entrance to the swimming pool otherwise hidden behind tall hemlock hedges.
