Place:
Greer Garden (Seattle, Washington)
United States of America -- Washington -- King County -- Seattle
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, plant lists, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This garden is composed of two parts: an upper garden and a lower garden. The lower garden is a Japanese garden enclosed by a high brick wall. A small stream framed with plants winds through the lawn in view of the house. It originates from a natural spring on the upper level, forming a waterfall as it fills the pool below. The pool is surrounded by a rockery planted with azaleas, dwarf Japanese maples, and pine trees. A Colorado spruce cascades over the waterfall. In the spring the upper level is a mass of blooming daffodils and narcissus bulbs. These give way later to flowering rhododendrons, azaleas, etc., which are planted in beds surrounding the lawn. On either side of the upper lawn are native trees and shrubs, such as elms and huckleberry. A pink dogwood and Prunus dominate this part of the garden in the fall.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Robert Popin Greer (former owners, 1913-1954); Otto Holmdahl (landscape gardener, 1930); Oliver Ester (landscape gardener, 1950-1960); John Kenyon (landscape gardener, 1950-1960); Ossie Ohata (gardener, 1960-1990); and Don Asalton (gardener, 1993 to date).

Place:
Little House in the Big Woods (Mequon, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Ozaukee County -- Mequon
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, plant list, and photocopies of newspaper articles.
General:
The eleven acre property includes a country Cape Cod style house, nine acres of hardwood trees, perennial and vegetable gardens designed by landscape architect Judith Stark (ASLA), a prairie, fairy garden, frog pond with a water garden and a mowed meadow next to a volley ball field. Stone walls separate the perennial garden from the prairie and set off play areas, and four custom wooden gates define access to the prairie. The vegetable garden alongside the house has rustic fencing, a rose bed and a rustic rose arbor. The perennial garden displays flowers suited to the climate, while on the other side of a stone wall in the 1.5 acres of prairie the flower are less organized. Woodlands include an American beech grove and a spruce grove as well as a treehouse and a 'Winnie the Pooh' tree. The fairy garden is set among spring bulbs on pebble paths and brought inside during the winter. Each year the property becomes a 'county fair' when the grandkids and their friends bring pet animals for 'judging' and parades.
The semi-rural location included woods, farm fields and hunting preserve with a cabin in a 167 acre tract before this house was built by a previous owner. The current owners converted the garage into a library, changed windows and added a free standing garage.
Persons associated with the garden include: Otto Kuehn (former landowner, 1940); Peter O'Malley (former owner, 1979-1986); Richard Keegan (former owner, 1986-1988); Judith Stark, ASLA (landscape architect, 1990s); Prairie Nursery (prairie developer, 1995).

The Chimneys (River Hills, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Milwaukee County -- River Hills
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a planting list and other materials.
General:
The Chimneys is a fifteen-acre property featuring extensive woodlands gardens and a red brick house modeled after the Raleigh Tavern in historic Williamsburg. Landscape architect Franz Lipp's 1950 design that surrounded the house featured yews, crabapples, hawthorns, elms and an orchard, and some of those trees are still growing, supplemented by hundreds of additional trees and shrubs that have been planted by the current owners as well as mature native trees. To the south of the house there is a five-acre lawn with a view of a pinetum and pergola near the bordering Indian Creek. Near the house there is a formal rose garden protected by a mature boxwood hedge, a perennial garden, orchards and a vegetable garden. Bordering the great lawn there is a white garden planted with rhododendron, Casa Blanca lilies and white bulbs, and a garden named for the owners' granddaughter that features dwarf conifers and maples. Three ponds along the edge of the woodlands gardens introduce the layered planting style that is featured, with an understory of bulbs and wildflowers, a middle level of flowering shrubs and trees and an upper story of mature trees.
Texture, bark and leaf color were considered when the tree collections were planted, with variegated and yellow leaf trees used as eye catchers in dark corners and along the ponds. There are fifty varieties of maple, beeches, spruce and pines, magnolias, oaks and viburnum along with bulbs and wildflowers that have been planted or replanted on the property and allowed to naturalize. In addition to preserving Lipp's scheme the current owners were influenced by European landscape and naturalized gardens by designers William Kent and William Robinson and American arboretums. Recent additions include a manmade pond, a Williamsburg-style gatehouse, and a tree house with colonial and gothic features.
Persons associated with the garden include: Emerson Noyes (former owner, circa 1930 -1950); Norman and Millie Chester (former owners, 1950-1984); Andrew H. Hepburn (architect, 1949-1950); and Franz Lipp (1897-1996) (landscape architect, 1950).

Place:
Poke Garden (Marshall, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Fauquier County -- Marshall
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, a garden plan, plant list, articles, and a narrative description of the garden keyed to the individual slides.
General:
The garden is a series of rooms connected through ramps, steps, gates, bridges and paths. The tool shed is placed as the focus at the northern end of the main garden. It closes the blue garden and acts as the passage into the hydrangea gardens as well as the dividing structure between the entrance drive and the vegetable/fruit garden. At the southern end of the blue garden is a belvedere with views over the protected agricultural land that adjoins this garden. Below a stone retaining wall is the bocce lawn with a large bench sitting front of a six foot tall stone wall that acts as a privacy barrier from the country road behind it. At the eastern end of the bocce lawn is a covered gate that takes you up a flight of steps to the diving terrace of the swimming pool. Below the swimming pool wall is the pink garden with herbaceous plantings and "shrubby" structure with four antique apples at the bottom just above the pergola bridge. South from the red garden, you will cross the lower bridge , which takes you through the woodland walk to the shade pond and below that to the sylvan seating of the amphitheatre and up the hill to the millennium garden with a stone obelisk set in a circle of turf, which looks down to a large pond site and above to a wildflower garden. On the north side of the parking court is a stone retaining wall planted with Jasmine nudifolium with mock olive behind it and a hedge of blue spruce. The main drive comes out of this parking court through the rhododendron gardens and back to the front gate.
Person(s) associated with the property include: Dana Scott Westring (landscape designer, 1988-present).
