Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and additional photographs.
General:
The property comprises just under one and one-half acres, much of it sloping to woodlands and a brook, nearly all shaded by mature trees, with outcroppings of native boulders. The gardens were transformed after World War II from a vegetable garden into a mini nursery with a collection of dwarf conifers. When purchased this property had hedges of hemlock and pine on one side, false cypress and rhododendron on the other, and some foundation planting. The front rock garden was created first with narrow walkways of indigenous stone among the newly planted flowering shrubs. The back foundation garden and driveway embankment were planted next, then the flat areas in back were filled with deep borders of flowering shrubs, dwarf conifers and perennials, working around the massive granite boulders left behind by ancient glaciers. Azaleas, native rhododendrons, and mountain laurel suited the high shade from the woodlands and acidic soil condition; mosses thrive as groundcover in this location and encourage volunteer offshoots from the shrubs. The colorful spring blooms of azaleas, rhododendron and dogwood trees are followed by summer blooming hydrangea and perennials planted in beds and containers, while in fall the changing colors of leaves and ornamental grasses are featured.
Over the years the owner has introduced some newer cultivars and has added a deer fence, two small fish ponds, a bird feeder and bird houses to encourage other native wildlife. The moss lawns and terrace are kept neat by using a weed whacker and the azaleas are pruned so they do not overgrow the dwarf conifers. Since the property drops off sharply on the east side a row of containers planted with spirea on a purpose built platform line the walkway to the back garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: include Katherine Lauder Hyde (former owner, 1956); the Paul Bacco Realty (former owner, 1958); Noel B. Toombs (former owner, 1961-1966); Site Systems (terrace and fish pond, 2006).

General:
The French Norman style house was built in 1928 with features from the Arts & Crafts movement, such as pot-shaped terracotta trim under the roof line, signs of the zodiac, fleur de lis and glazed tiles. There are descending terraces on the less than one acre property with high brick walls, some of which have built-in platforms that would support containers for vertical gardens. Mature pines tower over the house and mark one perimeter while a mixture of pine, hemlock, oak, birch and Dutch elm form a woodland border on another side of the property. The original garden plan is mostly intact, featuring mature rhododendrons, native mountain laurels, azaleas, and perennial borders. A dense yew hedge acts as a privacy barrier in front of the house although it is set along the side of a circle of lawn in the center of the driveway, and not next to the house. Perennials, ferns and ground cover plants are layered beneath established shrubs and trees along the driveway entrance to the property and around the foundation of the house. New trees have been planted when needed as replacements that renew rather than change the established garden.
A major storm in 2010 damaged trees and opened up areas for more sun tolerant plants. A perennial mixed bed in the middle terrace includes hydrangeas, peonies, spirea, Russian sage, coreopsis, rudbeckia, and sedums. A sunken garden in the lowest terrace includes American ginger, lambs ear, ligularia, pulmonaria, tiarella, Jefferson twin leaf and a climbing hydrangea on a high brick wall. A modern extension at the rear of the house was constructed within the structure of brick topped stone walls, and opens to the top terrace that has outdoor furniture. A small barn-shaped shed was added at the lowest elevation of the property and is used to store garden tools and furniture out of season. The neighborhood was designated as a National Historic District in 1968.
Persons associated with the garden include Soby family (former owners, 1928-1934); Cooley family (former owners, 1934-1984); Firger family (former owners, 1984-2001); Johnson family (former owners, 2001-2009); Desmond, Eddy & Warner (landscape architects, 1928); Lester Beach Scheide (1897-1953) (architect, 1928); Edgar M. Brown (landscape gardener and forester, 1928).

The property has changed hands and size many times since a wooden farmhouse was built in 1845; since 1980 the current owners have developed a cottage garden on their one acre while preserving remnants of the 19th century New England farm. Historic features include an arbor with Concord grapes, European white elm planted in 1916, Northern spy apples in the fruit orchard, a patch of rhubarb, a lilac hedge planted over an old granite foundation, partial spirea hedge, fieldstone wall, a soapstone sink, a small barn used now for tool storage with a study in the old loft, and antique farm machinery displayed in a field. Contemporary additions include a colorful border with landscape roses, lilies and shrubs backed by a row of boulders that opens the garden to view from the street. In front of the house there are beds of perennials on either side of the walkway to the front door rather than lawn. Spring bulbs, ferns, herbs, milkweed and a lilac in each of four corners surround the house. New fruit trees have been planted within the historic orchard, and there is an annual neighborhood cider pressing party using an antique cider press. A screened gazebo is sited within a garden with post and rail fences bordered by the grape arbor and peony hedges and exited through a pergola covered by honeysuckle. The kitchen garden, blueberry patch and two beds of perennial flowers comprise the gazebo garden. Native wildflowers in the meadow beyond and native vines, shrubs and trees planted in the farther reaches of the property help maintain its historic character.
During the Country Estate era in the early years of the twentieth century a former owner amassed surrounding properties to the size of the original farms, about 100 acres. A manor house was built, with landscaping by Ernest W. Bowditch that included the European white elm and a defunct butternut allée on this acre. The gardens are used by the current owner, who writes a gardening column for the Boston Globe, to teach both gardening and conservation of Massachusetts heritage.

General:
The brick Georgian colonial style house built in the 1940's with 8.3 acres was inherited but other than trees everything has been changed. One of the first projects was installing a brick wall and gazebo near the tennis court, followed by stone walls, steps, paths, picket fences, terraces, trellises, a passageway connecting the house to another building, a swimming pool, sculptures, garden statuary, garden lighting, hedges, trees, shrubs and perennials, with annuals added each year to containers and borders. The owner designed gardens that encircle the house, a gazebo garden, front entrance garden, a 160-foot wall garden, swimming pool garden and open terrace garden. Island beds and borders have been added, eliminated or replanted as the owner "paints pictures using living plants".

The property is entered on a gravel drive between stone pillars that are connected to stone walls and across a stone bridge over a stream that has fields on each side. On one side the field is filled with native plants including Joe Pye weed, butterfly weed, swamp weed, asters, ferns and sedge. The other field has grasses, irises, filipendula and a large diabolo ninebark shrub. Further along the drive there is a circle bed with a mature linden tree, shrubs, a rabbit statue, a large rock, and a Mexican baptismal font used as a planted container. The perimeter of the house is planted with boxwood hedges and ball shaped bushes, crabapple and pachysandra. Sheared boxwood hedges zigzag to the front door and cast stone containers in the formal entrance garden are planted with white flowering annuals and companion foliage. Underfoot there are granite squares edged with brick. Near a venerable sugar maple at one corner of the house the 160-foot stone retaining wall garden room built in the 1990's is planted with shrubs, perennial flowers and boxwood with planted stone baskets perched on either side of stone steps that are planted with campanula and thyme. There are many whimsical features in the gardens or on exterior surfaces of the buildings such as statues of rabbits and dogs, giant ceramic frogs, birdcages, birdhouses, reflecting mirrors and on the retaining wall "The Old Man of Mikeno", a 1923 bronze bust of the Gorilla sculpted by Carl Akeley in 1864 for the Museum of Natural History in New York.

The swimming pool is surrounded by a white picket fence planted with New Dawn roses, tansy, spirea and hydrangea; large containers in each corner of the pool hold agapanthus, sage and rosemary. A pear allée leads to the barn that is embellished with a cupola and large window sourced from antiques dealers. The brick gazebo along the drive hosts climbing hydrangea, with the garden planted with smoke bushes, variegated dogwood, hosta, white astilbe, iris, sedum, white rhododendron, white birches, lilies and dwarf spruce.

Persons associated with the garden include: George Stevens and Beatriz B. Moore (former owners, 1940-1973); George Bermejillo Moore (former owner, 1973-2015); Katharine L. Moore (owner, 1973- ); Enrique Monjo (1895-1976) (sculptor); Carl Akeley (1864-1926) (sculptor).

The Colonial revival house with some eccentric details, built 1910-1912, has its original cedar siding and an historic designation of the highest architectural significance in this historic village. The gardens have been redesigned several times with much of the indigenous clay removed and replaced for better drainage. This property containing a house and garage is not quite 14,000 square feet with brick walkways, driveway, and edging for the parterre that is along one side of the house. There is a deep perennial, bulb and shrub border in the front yard with a clematis covered arch leading to the miniature English boxwood parterre planted with herbs. A holly hedge, pear, fig, dogwood, and serviceberry along with perennials fill this side of the property backed by a lattice fence. A serpentine dry stone wall built circa 2000 snakes across the entire backyard separating the back lawn from the raised bed planted with perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees. Borders on the other side of the house are curved to create an hourglass-shaped swath of grass; they have pink spirea on one side facing astilbe on the other side.

The plant selection is suited to the climate, although the new soil requires more watering. Other trees and shrubs include magnolia, dwarf magnolia, crabapple, crape myrtle, hydrangea, hydrangea standards, rhododendron, buddleia, smoke bush, and bamboo. The long list of perennials in the garden borders includes foxglove, artemisia, aster, lavender, hosta varietals, heuchera, lilies, santolina, liriope, hellebores, allium, and iris. Herbs in the parterre include lovage, thyme, garlic chives, lemon balm, sage, fennel, mint, parsley and basil varietals.

Persons associated with the garden include: Rear Admiral and Mrs. Adolph A. Hoehling, Jr. (former owners, 1909-1910); Charles F.R. Ogilby and Elizabeth Hoehling Ogilby (former owners, 1910- ); Dermot Nee and Antoinette Nee (former owners, 1949- ); Raymond Walsh and Rosalie Camalier Walsh Trudeau (former owners, 1954- ); Arthur B. Heaton (1875-1951) (architect 1910-1912); David M. Schwarz (architect, 1987-1990); Frank Angel (landscape designer, 1988-1991); Scott M. Akers (horticulturist, 1990-1994); Michael V.

General:
The 1848 clapboard house on a half-acre lot has a quarter-acre of garden rooms that were renovated between 2005 and 2008 to complement the house and provide privacy from the busy village. Nearly 30 large boxwood were installed around two sides of the house while existing Alberta spruce, privet hedge and shrub roses inside the picket fence from earlier gardens were retained. The main garden overlooked by the porch was totally renovated by building new walkways, shrinking the lawn and adding a bench, and adding a yew hedge and new deep perennial borders. Trellises were built for the house and garage that support climbing hydrangea and roses. A diamond ivy topiary softens the fence bordering the terrace where volunteer fern and moss grow in the cracks between flagstones. A boxwood square with an armillary sphere in the center is the main feature in the kitchen herb garden, with plans for an espaliered tree. At one end of the lawn panel there is a painted Lutyens-style bench surrounded by spirea under kousa dogwood. In another corner there is a mature apple tree with shade-loving perennials growing beneath, including bluebells, Solomon's seal, anemone, ferns, hosta and lady's mantle. This garden has been visited during local garden tours.

Persons associated with the garden include: Joyce and Francis Pandolfi (owners, 2002- ); Christopher Thorp (landscape architect, 2004-2008)

General:
The 2.3 acre property that was handed down through the Shoemaker family had a tenpin alley built in 1880 with an octagonal room at one end with a cupola and gingerbread trim. In 1997 the owner designed and planted a cottage garden outside the picturesque building; the garden was removed when the property changed hands in 2012. The garden had two kidney shaped beds, with the larger bed measuring 82 feet long and up to 32 feet wide with a seven foot wide bisecting grass path. The garden beds were planned with the shorter varieties in front backed by taller plants. Perennials included echinacea, delphinium, day lilies, iris, phlox, rudbeckia, asters, yarrow, geraniums, lamb's ear and hosta. Annuals included verbena, marigolds, zinnias, begonias and pelargoniums used to fill in color; bulbs included daffodils, crocus, tulips and Asian lilies. Tree peonies, landscape and climbing roses, butterfly bush, hydrangea, boxwood, barberry and spirea added structure and more color or blossoms to the garden. Towering American beech and white pines formed the backdrop. A sundial was placed in the center of the larger bed, stepping stone paths were hidden within the flower beds, and containers and sculpture were placed at the ends.

Persons associated with the garden include: Shoemaker family (former owners, 1860- ); Sally Shoemaker Robinson (garden designer, 1997-2011).
