Place:
Marting Residence (Shaker Heights, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Cuyahoga County -- Shaker Heights
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan.
General:
This .75-acre garden site was the Van Sweringen Land Company's lot #27 in the planned community of Shaker Heights, Ohio. Built for Mr. Wilbur Brooks in 1927, the house was designed by noted architect Monroe Copper (Dunn & Copper) and the original site plan was produced by Alexander & Strong, a well-known firm of landscape architects and town planners. The lily pool at the north end of the lot (large for Shaker Heights lots) was built in 1927. It holds approximately 2,750 gallons of water. Space was set aside on the eastern side of the property for flower borders, edged by hedges and divided by a walk. No plant material was specified on the blueprint. In 1937, Margaret Eaglesfield Bell produced a detailed blueprint for an evergreen, perennial and rose garden for the second owner, Mrs. Chester Brooks. Little is known about Bell, although she may have lived in Shaker Heights. Bell's blueprint replaced the original Alexander & Strong design. The spaces were divided into a series of three "rooms," separated by privet hedges, and bisected by a turf path set with stepping stones. The evergreen garden contained azalea, deutzia, and spring bulbs. The perennial bed combined such perennials as anemone, aquilegia, Arabis alpina, Dicentra spectabilis, eupatorium, lilies, iris, and peonies, among others. Several annuals such as ageratum and pansies were suggested as well. The color scheme was predominantly purple, pink and white. The formal rose garden contained hybrid teas bordered by teucrium, interplanted with spring bulbs. Each quadrant of the garden contained two Viburnum carlesi and a deutzia. In the center, a bird bath was underplanted with English ivy.
At the time the current owners purchased the house in 1988, the garden had undergone several decades of neglect. The perennial bed had been plowed under, and was adjacent to several large elms which shaded the area extensively. The rose garden shape remained, as did the ivy bed in the center. Only one rose bush remained. The evergreen garden was essentially a mix of ivy, pachysandra and myrtle. In the center of the yard, two large, dead elm trees predominated, and in their place the owner has created a large perennial bed with the help of gardener Joseph Simonelli. The predominant color scheme is once again purple, white and pink, with iris, peonies, lilies, chelone, roses, liatris, chrysanthemum, tradescantia, columbine, phlox, amsonia, Japanese anemone, Acanthus mollis, and Acanthus spinosus among others. The lily pond has been restored to working order, and a biofilter and pump have been installed. The hemlocks surrounding the pool cut down on the necessary light, so the lilies bloom only moderately well. Future plans include restoration of the rose garden, half of which is currently a garden where the owner's children grow vegetables and experiment. Throughout the property the owner is attempting to use the same kinds of flowers that were in the Bell design, even if they are not in the same location.
Persons associated with the garden include: Wilbur Brooks (former owner, 1928-ca. 1937); Mrs. Chester K. Brooks (former owner, ca. 1937-?); Mr. and Mrs. Hancock (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Paul Fritsche (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Roger Noall (former owners, before 1988); Alexander & Strong (landscape architects, 1927); Margaret Eaglesfield Bell (landscape architect, 1937); Dorothy W. Elliott (landscape designer, 1993); Alexander A. Apanius (landscape designer, 1995 to date); and Joseph Simonelli (gardener, 1988 to date).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Schreiber Garden (Shaker Heights, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Cuyahoga County -- Shaker Heights
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, site plan, and newspaper article.
General:
A suburban garden established in 1990, the design reflects a changing lifestyle from the 1929 house. The purpose of the new garden is to create a view from the now popular kitchen--the social gathering place in the home. A stone circle was added to the 1980s brick terrace to provide a link to the new flower borders. The allowed for the incorporation of the old garage (aggrandized with a fountain, raised beds, and treillage). A wooden gazebo became the focal terminus of the garden. Sixteen years on roses smother the gazebo; the hedges have grown tall; and the family enjoys the view year 'round.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Clarence and Ellen Carhin (former owners, 1928-1985); Maggie Williams (garden designer, 1990); Leon Bihun (artisan craftsman, 1991-present); and Helen Schreiber (gardener, 1991-present).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Cropthorn (South Euclid, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Cuyahoga County -- South Euclid
Scope and Contents:
Cropthorn related holdings consist of 2 folders, 2 35 mm. slides (c.1987-1992) and 25 35mm slides (1984).
General:
The main feature of the garden was its arc of perennial and rose gardens, sloping to catch the sun and the visitor's eye. The Tudor house, lawns, and gardens became an organic part of the property, which had been second or third growth forest, part of long-abandoned farmland. Well-grown trees were preserved, along with sections of the woods. The south area was kept unchanged except for a flagstone-paved picnic area with brick seating and a large brick fireplace. The woods to the east were somewhat tamed by lining the stream with sandstone; putting in primroses, ferns and other shade-loving plants; and adding two small stone bridges. The flower beds were terraced with low sandstone walls lining broad grass paths. Dense plantings of iris and roses bloomed through the summer. Cutting gardens, two greenhouses, a cold-frame, tool shed, vegetable garden; and field completed the property.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: Richard Preston and Helen Millikin Nash, II (former owners, ca. 1923-1990).

Old Orchard (Waite Hill, Ohio)

Scope and Contents:

General:
The garden originally consisted of a small formal garden facing the road. The rest of the property contained an old apple orchard. The owners cleared some of the trees and moved the garden farther to the back of the house in 1983 in order to use it as a way of defining a ravine edge, giving a sweeping view across the back acres. Large yew bushes provide an anchor and focal point in the winter. Perennial beds faded into flowering shrubs and trees backed by woods and the ravine. In 1991, a garden room addtion led to the creation of the water garden, now, the major feature of the property. The water garden was re-designed in 1997. Much of the design of the gardens has been done by the owner.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Brian Sherwin (former owner, ? - 1970); and Mr. Charles Knight (landscape architect, 1983).

General:
Winden was originally the country residence of the founder of the Sherwin- Williams Company, Henry Alden Sherwin, and was later the home of his daughters Belle and Prudence Sherwin. The grounds were designed by the Olmsted Brothers firm of Boston around 1915. A series of garden rooms were fitted into different levels on a hillside and combined effects from both English and Italian gardens. Included were flower gardens, walls, terraces, stairways, water features, meadows, and arbors leading to the site of a working farm. The gardens fell into decline by the early 1960s and had vanished by the 1970s. An office complex was built on the site where the original house stood.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Henry Alden Sherwin (former owner, 1898-1916); Belle Sherwin (former owner, before 1955); Prudence Sherwin (former owner); and Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects, ca. 1915).
