General:
In the sequence of Louise Newton's slide presentation this image comes after those for Esher Place and before those for Penshurst Place. Several other gardens, however, were visited between the visits to Esher Place and Penshurst Place. These included, in order: Wisley, Albury Park, Burford, Brockhurst, and The Homestall. Moreover, the slide presentation placed the Penshurst images before those for Brockhurst, adding further uncertainty to the location of this image.

Place:
House in the Woods (Lake Geneva, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Walworth -- Lake Geneva
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and articles about the house.
General:
Beauty without boundaries is the guiding principle for the more than 50 acre vacation estate. Since it was identified as one of the most beautiful country houses by Ladies Home Journal in 1912 and had gardens landscaped by John Charles Olmsted in 1905, the owners chose to restore rather than renovate when they purchased the property in 1971. The wooded shore of Lake Geneva with rockwork retaining walls transitions into an ornamentally landscaped estate. Drifts of hydrangea, hosta and buckeye at the gated entrance are succeeded by the original concrete driveway through woodland gardens with sugar maple, red oak, white oak, linden, boxwood, ground covers and perennial flowers that include daylilies, bleeding heart, phlox, and rugose roses. The formal drive circle at the house has a fountain in the center and a perimeter of flowering shrubs and variegated ivy topiaries. A grass terrace facing the lake features a rustic planted stone staircase. White roses and hydrangea are accented by a bell placed on an old tree stump. The children's garden has containers of vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs with rustic wattle arches and furniture.
An enclosed courtyard for the swimming pool between the main house and guest house has clipped yew hedges, ground covers and perennials, trumpet, clematis and wisteria vines, and potted citrus trees. Near stands of mature trees planted more than 100 years ago there is a grotto, a mound of soil and stones topped by a statue with a stone bench nearby. One lawn is kept sculpted into a labyrinth. There is a mineral spring on the property, which is said to be restorative, that flows into a fieldstone basin surrounded by a planted rockwork wall. The other formal gardens include a rose garden planted in parterres and enclosed by espaliered apple trees and an organic potager with vegetable, herb and cutting flower beds laid out geometrically on either side of a wide path of stabilized degenerate granite with more espaliered fruit trees on the surrounding wire fence and covering a pergola.
Renovations were required for a disabled family member, including widened and level walkways with very gradual inclines, smooth stone patios and terraces with narrow joints, benches placed where there are good views of the lake, access to the house and swimming pool, and an elevator to the second floor inside the house. Trees in the woodland gardens were replaced as needed and tagged for future reference.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Adolphus Clay Bartlett (former owners, 1905-1930); Colonel and Mrs. William Marvin Spencer (former owners, 1930-1971); John Charles Olmsted (landscape architect, 1905); Howard Van Doren Shaw (architect, 1905); Bartlett Tree Experts (arborists, 2011); Mariani Landscape (landscape architect, 1980- ).
The property was featured in "Ladies Home Journal" in 1909 when it was selected as one of the the twelve most beautiful homes in America.

Kaneohe -- Nottage Garden

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Nottage Garden (Kaneohe, Hawaii)
United States of America -- Hawaii -- Honolulu County -- Kaneohe
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and other information.
General:
Native Hawaiians built fish ponds from lava rocks in the 1400s that developers filled in the 1940s to produce ocean front housing sites. The Nottage Garden is located on 17,500 square feet of this fill, mostly heavy clay harvested from nearby reefs in Kane'ohe Bay. Starting in 1955, the owners have created an informal tropical garden stocked with native Polynesian and Asian trees and perennials that surrounds their self-designed house and continues to the bay. An open Dutch door provides an ocean view from the house, and the front deck and ocean side terrace are furnished for outdoor living. Several varieties of palm trees grow on the perimeter of the property along with lychee, lime, lemon, papaya and banana trees that provide fruit and privacy. Colorful bromeliads, hibiscus, ti and bougainvillea grow alongside abundant ferns, blue sandpaper, stephanotis, and golden dewdrop vines and bonsai.
The garden incorporates artifacts and plants of the Hawaiian culture. Lava rock is used for retaining walls and large basins once used for crushing rocks are now planting containers. Garden ornaments include green glass fishing floats from Japan. The owners planted Hala trees that served many purposes historically, including fiber for weaving and wood for implements.
Persons associated with the garden include Lois Nottage (garden designer, 1955 to present).
