Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Albury Park (Guildford, Surrey, England)
United Kingdom -- England -- Surrey -- Guildford
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
Designed by John Evelyn in the mid- to late 17th century, the gardens at Albury Park owed much to the vision of owner Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel. Working in the spirit of the Renaissance, Evelyn attempted to create something comparable to the Italian gardens of the previous century, highlighting terraces, water features, and classical sculpture. Two 400-yard-long terraces remain today. The upper terrace includes a semi-circular arcaded bay, overlooking a pool. This bay forms the entrance to a grotto and leads to a tunnel through the hillside. The lower terrace has a central doorway leading to an underground bathhouse. Many changes to Evelyn's original design were made in the 1920s, including draining of a long,rectangular canal below the terraces and the planting of many trees. Albury Park was visited during the Garden Club of America's June 1929 tour to England. A complete copy of the GCA tour itinerary was printed in the Bulletin of the Garden Club of America (Fourth Series, No. 5), September 1929, pp. 6-25.
Persons associated with the garden include: John Evelyn (landscape architect, ca. 1655-1670); and Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel (former owner, 17th century).

Westminster West -- Hayward Garden

Place:
Hayward Garden (Westminster West, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Windham -- Westminster West
Scope and Contents:
Hayward Garden includes 63 digital images and a folder that includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and additional images including a pamphlet about a musical program created for and perfomed in the garden in 2014 as a the Yellow Barn summer program.
General:
The owners describe their one and one-half acre ornamental garden as a new garden in an old place, with its 200 year-old colonial farmhouse and attached barn, low stone walls, and old farm building foundations that have been repurposed as distinctive garden rooms within surrounding meadows and woods. They purchased the property in 1983 and spent about one year clearing the land of scrap metal and other debris, brambles and weed trees, a rotting barn, dead trees, and an old Nash Metropolitan automobile. The garden style is English, with a rectilinear format from south to north softened by lush growth in season and more evident in the long Vermont winter. The design began by drawing a straight line from the front door of the house to a 75-year-old apple tree. There is a crab apple orchard along that main axis that can be seen from the house. Brick and pea stone gravel walks, 90-foot long mixed borders, and an herb garden laid out in formal parterres are either parallel or perpendicular to the central axis of the garden. The 14 garden rooms are delineated by clipped hedges of varying heights, many of yew but also other plant materials for variation. There are four places to sit within the garden: a gazebo at the far end reached through a tunnel of pleached copper beech, an outdoor dining room on pavers under tall trees, a bench slightly above and overlooking their spring garden, and another bench next to a shed near the herb garden.
Creating a garden in harmony with the rural location was important to the owners, who subsequently purchased 19 adjacent acres and preserved the meadows and woods with the Vermont Land Trust. To instill harmony in the diverse garden rooms the owners adhere to three themes: hedges for structure, black locust posts and terra cotta containers for materials, and burgundy and other reds for the color that recurs throughout the garden rooms. Since the entire garden is unified it is possible to add variations without muddling the design. Honoring the long gone dairy farms they have turned the foundations of a milking parlor into a garden room that has low, drought tolerant plants growing among the stone flooring and three rusted milk cans. The cracked cement foundation of a former silo was turned into a pond with a fountain built into a stone wellhead and a statue of Buddha on the shore.
Gordon Hayward has written many articles for Horticulture, Taunton's Fine Gardening, and regional magazines using his own garden to teach design aesthetics and their practical application. Topics include the effective placement of planted and unplanted containers and other garden ornaments, how to build a small fountain, the importance of proportions to design, how to set vertical posts, and tips on outdoor seating and dining rooms. Good design is illustrated by reshaping lawns to complement planted borders or trees, through consistent choices of decorative materials, through applying the principles of theme and variation when choosing what to put in the garden, and through planning for the winter garden with berries and crab apples for birds and good "bones" that become evident in winter.
Persons associated with the garden include: Gordon Hayward (owner, garden designer, and gardener, 1983- ), Mary Hayward (owner, garden designer, and gardener, 1983- ), Ephraim and Lydia Johnson Ranney, and their descendants in the Buxton and Reed families (former owners, circa 1790-1983); Helen O'Donnell (gardener, 2008-2015).

Bowlin Price Lewis Garden (Memphis, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Shelby County -- Memphis
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
This southern garden of approximately one acre has evolved through three generations of one family. Its current form began to take shape in the late 1980s with the construction of a conservatory off the living room of the home, which resulted in the garden becoming the focal point of the house. The same architect, Lewis A. Graeber, III, then designed a pool, walks, and renovations to the guest cottage. Although a few old trees and hollies were saved, a new garden plan took shape to reflect one of the owner's fascination with the elements of form, texture, line, and space. The result was a design intended to contrast stark, linear branches against evergreen geometric forms for winter interest. Sculptural silhouettes of styrax trees juxtaposed with mounded boxwoods give the garden a sense of boldness and purpose, a contrast even more dramatic in winter. The trees are arranged to form a tunnel that draws the eye to a fountain. Just beyond the fountain is a lush layering of evergreens that entices the viewer to slow down and experience the peacefulness of the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Lewis A. Graeber, III (architect, 1988-1998); Jimmy Graham (designer, 1987 to date); Jerry Attaway (horticulturist, 1999 to date); and Thomas Woodward (sculptor, 2000).

General:
Located on approximately 24 acres, the property was named Tunnel Farm as a nod to a tunnel built for an extension of the North Pennsylvania Rail Road which opened in Gwynedd in 1856. Local red Triassic sandstone was used to build a two bay, two story gable roof house fronting the road. The house retained the footprint with minor alterations until ca.1930 when Mr. and Mrs. Edward Harvey added a keeping room and bedroom. Tunnel Farm was maintained as working farm until the 1950s and is currently a gentleman's farm with barn, other outbuildings and gardens. Many efforts have been made to preserve open space near Tunnel Farm including deeding over half of the property to the Natural Lands Trust as an easement. Tunnel Farm is a rare example of a country farm with extensive open land, a pond, stream, woodlands and gardens in an ever-growing suburban environment. The original farmhouse was built in approximately 1783.
Other features of the garden include beehives, birdbaths, cisterns, ha has, herb garden, native plant gardens, vegetable garden, walled gardens, woodland gardens and an orchard.
Persons and groups associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Edward F. Harvey (former owners, 1926-1945), Mr. and Mrs. Charles J. Clark, Jr. (former owners, 1945-1954), Mr. and Mrs. George B. Burpee (former owners, 1954-1957), Mr. and Mrs. Joseph M. Jackson (former owners, 1957-1961), Alice Doering (landscape designer, 1984-1994) and John D. Milner (architect, 1991).

General:
The Catone Garden had deteriorated when the current owners had it cleared in 1986 and uncovered its intricacies. In 1927 landscape architects William Pitkin, Jr. and Seward H. Mott laid out the design for the three-quarter acre property, and the original hardscape, including brick walls and walks and an excedrae with a pond and fountain, still remain. Pittsburgh architects Charles Ingham and William Boyd installed an arched tunnel between the house and garage that heightens the drama of entering the side garden. Garden borders alongside the sizable rectangular lawn in the main garden directly behind the house are bisected by brick paths, which lead to less formal side gardens, including a cutting garden and a rock garden. Two boxwood topiaries of a tortoise and a hare have been maintained.
The owners have added 50 disease-resistant varieties of roses, broken up the linear perennial borders in the formal garden with asymmetrical swaths of color, added a cutting garden in raised beds along a new rock wall, and are growing vegetables in raised beds. Mature trees such as sweet bay magnolia, Norway maple and hawthorne from the original landscape shade the property. Perennial flowers and shrubs, such as daylilies, roses, rhododendrons and peonies were found growing on the property and were retained.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles Ingham & William Boyd (architects, 1927-1928); William Pitkin, Jr. & Seward H. Mott, Inc. (landscape architects of original garden, circa 1927); Charles F. Arnott (former owner, 1927-1928); John G. Buchanan (former owner, 1936-1986); Lindsay Bond Totten (garden designer).
