The Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson Jr. Garden (Nashville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Davidson -- Nashville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The garden and residence of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson represents one of the first "Country Place Era" gardens in Nashville. The Neoclassical home, designed by architects A. Christian Asmus and Richard R. Clark, was built in 1929 by F.J. McCarthy and his wife Mary Byrd McCarthy. When the current owners assumed ownership of the property in 1987, the garden areas near the house were primarily lawns surrounded by towering boxwood hedges, formal and static in design. With the desire to allow more light into the Neoclassical style house as well as to create terraces to accommodate an eight foot change in elevation and a garden room for a swimming pool, the owners turned to their sons-in-law, landscape architect Ben Page (ASLA) and architect Stephen P. Rick (AIA) to renovate the property. The four garden rooms that were designed are arranged laterally alongside and below the house with surrounding high walls and interior low walls. A pre-existing 50-foot antique wrought iron fence and a pergola built on massive piers were incorporated into the design and separate the garden rooms from the natural garden that comprises the rest of the property. The first room is a large terrace that can be tented for special events, with steps down to a more intimate sunken terrace for family use, followed by more steps to a formal parterre rose garden with a pool and fountain in the middle and pear trees espaliered against one wall, and lastly a landscaped pool and new pool house converted from a three car garage with cutting and vegetable gardens nearby. A door in the garden wall closes off the swimming area when it is out of season.
This garden features plant material and hardscape with provenance, starting with the Seven Sisters climbing roses that were transplanted from another family property in the 1930s. Peonies planted by the current owner's mother still thrive below the pool house and border the cutting and vegetable gardens. The antique wrought iron fence was salvaged from another Nashville property and bricks used for the walks once comprised East Nashville sidewalks laid in the late 1800s. A Charlie Hunt sculpture "Dove of Peace" was carved from a foundation stone salvaged from an East Nashville church, Saint Ann's Episcopal (1882-1998). Native limestone and Tennessee Crab Orchard stone are local materials used for the walls and terraces.
In early spring a row of Yoshino cherry trees blooms along one side of a brick walkway just inside the high limestone wall with tulips blooming on the other side. Pansies and tulips surround the fountain in the rose garden for early color. In summer Annabelle hydrangeas border the swimming pool, and perennial flower beds come into bloom.
The gardens on the estate provide ample opportunities for a wide variety of social, civic and charitable events. One such event was the 1993 Swan Ball Patron's Party for the benefit of Cheekwood Botanical Barden and Museum of Art. The current owner has also hosted a series of literary salons to benefit the Nashville Public Library. Numerous local non-profits have benefited from fundraisers and garden tours hosted at the estate.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. F.J. and Mary Byrd McCarthy (former owners, 1929-1931); Mr. Edwin Wilson Craig and Elizabeth Wade Craig (former owners, 1931-1987); Christian A. Asmus and Richard R Clark (architects, 1929-1939); Ben Page, ASLA (landscape architect, 1988-1990); Stephen P. Rick (architect, 1988-1990); William Ralston (sculptor); Charlie Hunt (sculptor); Pink Ray (groundskeeper, 1931-1958); Mark Owen (groundskeeper, 1948-1971); Roy Goddard (groundskeeper, 1972-1981); Malcolm Campbell (grounds manager, 1981-1990); Norman David Pugh (grounds manager, 1990-present); Michele Webber (gardener, 2010-present).

Archival materials
Place:
Elizabeth's Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and an article.
General:
This small city garden is located on a corner lot of approximately one sixth of an acre overlooking the Dallas Country Club Golf Course. The garden was established in either 1991 or 1997 when the property was purchased by the current owners who downsized from a much larger two acre property. "Climbing Royal Sunset" roses are planted in all the beds and planters around the house. Some have climbed two stories tall and bloom until frost.
A walkway lined with topiaries lead to the stairs of the entrance of the house. Plantings include azaleas and roses. A stacked limestone rock wall borders the southern and eastern edge of the property and is planted with perennials and annuals.
The property includes two garden areas for seating and dining at the front and back of the house. The front garden (on the south end of the property) is protected by an 8 foot holly hedge which may be entered from the sidewalk through an arch in the hedge. The front garden features a blue stone slate terrace furnished with garden furniture for dining. The terrace is surrounded by beds planted with roses, hydrangeas, perennials such as irises, delphinium, daisies and tulips and daffodils in the spring. Two Japanese maples in planters provide year-round color.
The back garden (on the northwest corner of the property) is also bordered with roses and includes a terrace and patio, both of brick. A barbeque grill and smoker have been built into the eastern brick wall bordering the patio. A wooden pergola provides structure around the terrace seating area. Seasonally rotated perennials and annuals are planted in containers throughout the back garden.

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
United States of America -- Texas -- Bexar County -- San Antonio
Selig Garden (San Antonio, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
13 digital images (2017-2018) and 1 file folder.
General:
The owner is a plant collector who has found ways to grow varieties not usually suited to the semi-tropical climate of San Antonio. After the 2007 purchase of the historic district Greek Revival stone house on a double city lot with one old sabal palm it took three years to develop non-traditional garden rooms in the four microclimates that comprise the property. An Australian grapefruit hedge, agave, other gray and silver desert plants, rosemary and cacti are planted along the sidewalk and in the front garden. At the end of the covered front porch sitting area there is a limestone obelisk focal point; an armillary sphere in the enclosed front garden is nearly hidden by rosemary that blooms from October until April. The gravel driveway is conceived as an allée bordered on both sides with prickly pear cactus and other xeric plants. Branching off at the end of the gravel there is a teak bench shaded by the neighbors' pecan trees and framed by large containers with clipped white oleanders along with boxwood, seasonal bulbs and tubers, beauty bushes, nandina, Leyland cypress, and a loquat tree. Another container and tropical garden lines the driveway to the parking area.

A kitchen garden behind the house on a paved patio has Meyer lemon, bay laurel, seating and many pots of herbs, perennials and white narcissus. An antique limestone and bronze sundial purchased in England is the focal point for another garden room outside the guest house/office. This is a tropical garden with varieties of banana, palm, fern, a Brazilian pepper tree, ginger and ground covers. The gardens on this property emphasize foliage, shape and scent rather than colorful flowers. Intense summer sun and heat, a yearly freeze and widely swinging temperatures have been mastered by planting clusters of tropicals, bulbs under flowering perennials, and herbs and vegetables in containers.

Persons associated with the garden include: Minnie and Susie Martinez (former owners, no dates given); Peter and Jocelyn Selig (owners, 2007- ).

Place:
Pam's Garden (Englewood, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Bergen County -- Englewood
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, plant lists, and other information.
General:
With time, energy and talent a steep one-third acre suburban lot was transformed into a private, leafy sanctuary terraced on three levels with stone steps, a brick patio, rambling walkways, three reflecting pools with a waterfall between two of them, and a distinctive collection of ericaceous ( acid-loving) shrubs, including some rhododendrons hybridized by the owner. The garden was overgrown and Norway maples, ashes, mulberries and other weed trees had to be cleared out before the transformation could begin. The grading was done by hand, with the owners moving soil in wheelbarrows. A brick patio was built directly behind the house and ground covers, rhododendrons, azaleas and mountain laurels were planted. Native rocks were gathered on excursions to the country, flagstones were reaped when the town replaced its sidewalks, and stone capstones were salvaged from an old school building that was to be demolished. The owners used the rocks to build the walls that define the terraces, built steps from the flagstones, and used the capstones as pedestals. Eventually they built and planted their first reflecting pool on the lowest level. A redwood tree was planted to disguise a telephone pole and English and American ivies were grown over chain link fencing as living borders that kept dogs out of the garden.
A long narrow driveway connects the house to the street and the bed running along one side was planted with spring bulbs, flowers, and shrubs. The rest of the perimeter of the property was planted with evergreen hemlock, rhododendrons, yew and English holly for privacy. There was a small patch of grass planted on each level of the garden that acted as a breathing space between dense foliage plantings. Since the soil was acidic most of the flowering in this garden was early in the season as rhododendrons, foxgloves, and other shrubs, bulbs, and trees bloomed sequentially from April until July. In the heat of summer the garden was a shady, green compilation of shapes and textures.
The owner built a Nearing frame for propagation of hybrid rhododendrons. The frame stays closed so the seedlings are kept warm and moist. Some grew to size and were planted in the garden. Evergreens and other trees were pruned up to let in light for under-plantings. Plants that thrived in Pam's Garden grew in mostly shady and acidic conditions, although heath did not survive the heat of the New Jersey summers.
Persons associated with the garden include Harden (former owner, 1940s-1956); Pamela and James Proctor (former owners, 1956-2010).

Milton -- Neville Garden

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Neville Garden (Milton, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Suffolk County -- Milton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, copies of artwork and site plans.
General:
The Neville Garden is comprised of fourteen different named areas that reflect the owners' interests and relationships, all contained in one-third acre with an Arts and Crafts style house built circa 1910. The private garden rooms behind the house were originally utilitarian areas used for laundry and services, and by 1988 were in derelict condition. To commence the redesign a crumbling sidewalk to the service entrance was removed, fencing was improved, the ground was leveled, a terrace was built, and trees and spring bulbs were planted. Improvements were made each year, including the removal of tree stumps, overgrown trees and shrubs, the repositioning of old rhododendrons away from the house and the moving of a cupid fountain from in front of the house to the rear to become the centerpiece of a perennial garden. Other private garden rooms behind hedges or fences include a brick Tuscan courtyard and hybrid tea rose bed, an allee of apple trees, a philosopher's garden with stone pavers and seating, a paved T'ai Chi court with statuary, and a minimalist garden with a fountain. The garden rooms that are visible to the public include a hot garden planted in red and yellow annuals and perennials, Anselm's shrubbery fort designed for grandchildren's play, a pastel perennial bed and evergreen corner, woodlands and shade gardens on the perimeters, a bonsai rock garden, a cliff garden with a mugo pine and azaleas as well as mosses, an English cottage garden and hydrangea hedge, and a sunset terrace with seating and a nearby bed of chrysanthemums.
The hot garden is on a corner of the property and is used as a public space to display political and advocacy materials. For several years it held a September 11 memorial. A ring of globe cypress was planted to disguise an above ground plastic swimming pool that eventually wore out and was replaced by the circular minimalist garden planted with a sourwood tree, an American dogwood, and a Japanese red maple. Native rocks have been repositioned and stood up as accent pieces, including a bizarre boulder made of granite, quartz, mud, pebbles and other glacial debris. The Neville Garden was award the Isabel Stoughton Foster Cup in 2007 by the Milton Garden Club, which cited the profusion of flowering trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs, the four seasons of interest in the garden, and the privacy and serenity of the garden rooms.
Persons associated with the garden include: John R. Rablin (former owner, 1910-c.1930); Driscoll family (former owners, c.1930-c.1980); Mickey and Eleanor McGonagle (former owners, c.1980-1988); Bob, Josh and Maggie Oldfield, Thayer Nursery (grading and planting stock); A. Thomas & Sons, Bunny Thomas, Jim Aiello (grading, masonry, planting stock); Henry and Sally Thomas (planting stock); Sean Meehan & Company (rockwork, pruning, planting); Zachary Genduso (hardscaping); Sarah Vance (landscape theory); Elaine Hutchins (landscape theory); Robin Putnam (gardener); Marcia Ganter (gardener); Nick Sacramona (lighting); Tom and TJ Chippendale (carpentry).

General:
Situated on .3 acres, the Outdoor Reading Garden at the Wirt Public Library is a project of the Bay City Garden Club, which raised $50,000 for its development costs. Construction of a new public library was the impetus for the project, but before the garden could be planted, contaminated soil and large pieces of concrete (the site had previously been used for retail) were removed and topsoil was added. Aggregate sidewalks and the foundations for sculpture and benches were installed. A steel 3-D "Green Fence" was erected along two sides of the garden to enclose the space. In June of 2006 the Outdoor Reading Garden was planted. Due to the steel, glass, and concrete surrounding the garden space, the plant materials chosen for this contemporary design are heat and drought tolerant. The garden also includes a sculpture of a young girl carrying a basket of flowers, a large interactive kaleidoscope, and 30 decorative tiles which incorporate the letters of the alphabet and geometric patterns that complement the kaleidoscope designs.
Persons and firms associated with the property include David A. Clark (architect, 2004-2006); Jerry Somalski (landscape designer, 2004-2006); and Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr, & Huber, Inc. (architects, 2004-2006).

General:
Located on a 1,600 square foot lot, this garden has been under development only since 2005. Reflecting the Craftsman style architecture of the house, the design includes features ranging from an outdoor fireplace and "dining room" to a safe play area for the family dog. A rear garden includes terraced planting areas surrounding a pergola-covered patio with a wood-burning fireplace. A daybed is built into the terrace wall with one view down the side garden featuring ferns, hydrangeas, a mature tree, and other bushy plants. Terraced against the garage side wall is an herb garden with two espaliered fruit trees. The curving lines of the front garden border continue the lines of two contiguous properties, while there are small bulb and perennial planting areas at the junction of the front walk and the sidewalk. A diversity of plant material makes this a rich garden that belies its relatively small size.l
Firms associated with the garden include the Schmechtig Landscape Company (landscape deaigners and contractors, 2006).

General:
The red brick Colonial revival house was built in 1913 as a memorial tribute to Jessup Wakeman and later converted to a private home. The gardens, other than historic trees and remaining shrubs on the half-acre property were designed and planted beginning in 2004. There is a rose garden against brick walls planted in the narrow strip that abuts the sidewalk. The remainder of the south-facing front garden is accessed by a staircase, divided by the front walk into two approximately 30 by 50-foot rectangles. Straight lines were softened with curving borders inside the fences that top the walls and as foundation plantings along the house. The chosen palette favors orange, purple and chartreuse and cultivars in assertive colors that also attract pollinators were planted, supplemented with annuals. One red Japanese maple and two purple smoke bushes are the anchors for brilliantly colorful displays that include castor bean, love lies bleeding amaranth, tithonia sunflower, butterfly weed, orange zinnias, purple salvias, purple and orange dahlias, and, for overwintering, ornamental kale and purple pansies.

Along the part-shade side of the house there is a mixture of shrubs and perennials leading to a cluster with magnolia, crabapple, Japanese white pine, hollies, hydrangeas and another Japanese maple. The shady rear garden features the approximately 90-year-old American elm, which has been recorded by Connecticut agencies, and a horse chestnut planted in the 1950's. Holly, rhododendron, and magnolia are underplanted with hosta. A hidden path leads to a small patio shaded by redbud, viburnum, kousa dogwood and high bush blueberry, with perennials that include primrose, bleeding heart, hellebore, acanthus, wild orchids, Virginia bluebells, ferns and Solomon's seal. A bed of coleus is planted every year. The selected plants are intended to peak in late summer and fall when the gardens are dense and colorful.

Persons associated with the garden include: Frances Wakeman and Cornelia Wakeman Crapo (former owners, 1913-1948); George Brett (former owner, 1948-1980); Packer and Laura Wilbur (former owners, 1980-2001); Richard B. Gould (former owner, 2001-2016); Ellen Gould (owner, 2016- ); Tom Farrington (designer and gardener, 2004- ).
