Place:
Horn Garden (Mission Hills, Kansas)
United States of America -- Kansas -- Johnson County -- Mission Hills
Scope and Contents:
KS001010 is a reproduction of a page in a book. One of the images on the page is identical to KS001003.

The folders include worksheets, garden plans, a perspective drawing of the original house and grounds, a narrative of the recent restoration of the gardens, a plant list, a bibliography, and other information.
General:
This garden, named for its original owners, is located on the largest remaining estate from developer Jesse Clyde (J. C.) Nichols' garden suburb of Mission Hills, Kansas. Dating from around 1930 and purchased by its current owners in 1997, the 7-acre property incorporates formal design elements as well as sense of natural wildness in its wooded hillsides and manmade rill. A walled courtyard garden frames a view of the sculpture garden and provides a glimpse through the stone "teahouse" of long, formal perennial gardens framed with arbors and a pergola at the end. A formal grass court, Italian wellhead, swimming pool, and fountains complement the house and gardens. The current garden is the result of extensive restoration of what had become an overgrown and dated landscape. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. John E. Horn (former owners); Hare & Hare (landscape architects); and Edward W. Tanner (architect).
Related Materials:
The Horn Garden related holdings consist of 2 folders (17 35 mm. slides (photographs) and 4 photoprints)

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).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, photocopies of historic photographs, and histories of the property and architecture.
General:
Poplar Hill is a six-acre property with simplified plantings that accommodate a busy professional lifestyle in a deer-prone area, and renovations that have brought back design features from earlier gardens. The property is entered through a long curving drive under mature trees that leads to the colonial revival house with Georgian features built in the 1950s. The upper garden to the west of the house, measuring about 40 by 56 feet and oriented east to west is planted in turf grass bordered by shaped evergreen shrubs with gravel paths. Green lattice panels supported by tall brick piers enclose the upper garden. A broad flagstone swath with two steps leads to the lower garden, a 70 by 136 feet rectangle with rounded ends that is oriented north to south. A five-foot tall brick wall surrounds the lower garden with a summer house built into the wall that has white Tuscan columns reiterating those on the house. Inside the wall there is an informally planted double border of perennials, ornamental grasses and shrubs bisected by a gravel path; the rest of the lower garden is turf grass. Asian stone statues have been placed in the niches at each end of the lower garden and other statues and an antique English wellhead dot the property.
Modern additions to the garden's design include a brick patio, formal side garden and greenhouse southeast of the house. Two argyle parterres of deer resistant boxwood and barberry were planted at the main entrance to the house. A fenced cutting and vegetable garden was placed near where one existed in the past. A horseshoe-shaped yew hedge believed to be from the original landscape design was refurbished with mature shrubs where there were gaps. At one time a reflecting pool bordered in ivy and daphne was a feature in the garden; it was grassed over long ago but the current owners had stones placed outlining the old pool's shape. There are no poplar trees remaining at Poplar Hill and no plans to replant any.
The first house on the 41 acre property known as Poplar Hill was a colonial revival mansion with 35 rooms overlooking the Allegheny Country Club. The first landscape designer of the gardens was Arthur Shurtleff (Shurcliff) but no records or drawings of his design have been located. In the 1930s Poplar Hill had formal gardens with parterre beds of brightly colored bulbs and annuals, an enclosed rose garden, and a border containing one hundred named varieties of iris. The property was subdivided into parcels and most features of the earlier gardens were destroyed.
Persons associated with the garden include Martha Fleming Byers (former owner, 1904-1913); John Denniston Lyon and Maude Byers Lyon (former owners, 1913-1930); Reverend Dr. Maitland Alexander (former owner, 1931-1940); Madelaine Francis Laughlin Alexander (former owner, 1931-1952); William R. Jackson and Lucilla Scribner Jackson (former owners, 1952-1984); Walter E. Gregg, Jr. (former owner, 1984-1991); Mr. Wilson Wyatt (former owner, 1991-1993); Philip Hiss and H. Hobart Weeks (architects of original house, no longer standing, 1904); Arthur Asahel Shurtleff (later Shurcliff), ASLA (likely landscape architect of original garden, 1914); E. Burnet (landscape designer, dates unknown); Frederick DePeyster Townsend and Bryant Fleming (landscape architects, dates unknown); John Nelson Franklin and Herbert C. Douden & Associates (architects of current house, 1953); Jöel C. LeGall, ASLA (landscape consultant, 1994-present); Kutchko Nursery, Inc. (gardeners, 2005-present).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and other information.
General:
The 360-acre plot on a New Hampshire mountain purchased from a forest products company in 1978, with no remaining trees and no more than six inches of topsoil on top of bedrock, is the site of the Berg Gardens. The owners needed a place to put their collection of houses, buildings and architectural features. Elements from diverse building styles including a New England saltbox, a Norman tower, medieval stonework, American wrought iron, a tavern, and a barn were arranged and reconfigured as a mountaintop castle. The gardens were begun in 1986 with the assistance of landscape designer Gordon Hayward and stone mason Dan Snow, and included two trips to England to study the underlying structure of the English naturalistic style. Using stone from the property, nearby locations, and demolition sites and purchased marble, Snow built a hardscape structure of dry-stone walls, terraces, stone stairs and walkways, along with a stone grotto, a ruined silo, and the artificial ruins of a stone barn. A garden folly in the 18th c. chinoiserie style modeled on one at Hidcote in England was created from building plans for a Massachusetts outhouse.
Planting began after dry-stone retaining walls were put in to define garden beds and keep improved soil in place. Plants were chosen that suit the mountaintop environment as well as constructed features, with native seedlings allowed to invade the ruined stone silo. Native plants grow in the barn ruins, including ferns, blackberries, mosses, old roses and small trees. Color is controlled in the perennial garden beds in the terraced areas, ranging from hot to cooler tones. There is a dwarf conifer bed beyond the terraces, and conifers, hemlocks and crab apple trees were planted near the grotto. The "roof" of the grotto is a wild flower meadow with old stone wellheads set above openings in the stonework that let in light. Artifacts have been placed into the garden areas, including four Roman sarcophagi, urns, grinding wheels, a marble sundial, farm implements, and carved capitals topped by stone eagles.
Persons associated with this property are: Jonathan Royce and members of the Royce family (former owners, from 1780); various families (former owners, 19th c.); David & Simonds forest products (former owner, 20th c. until 1978); Gordon Hayward (landscape designer, beginning in 1986); Dan Snow (stone mason, beginning in 1986).
