General:
Royal Oaks represents one of the premier gardens of Tyler, Texas, dating to the mid-1930s - the unique era of the oil-drilling boom in eastern Texas. The gardens are located in Tyler's historic azalea district, adding to their heritage and community preservation status. From azaleas to dogwoods to a historic Black Gum, the elements are a community treasure.
Major plantings include Live Oaks, Magnolias, Dogwoods, Japanese Bloodgood Maple and Crepe Myrtles. Flowering plants include Camellias, Azaleas, Hydrangeas, Wisteria and Forsythia. St. Augustine grass, Mondo grass, native Yupons and other greenery complete the tableau.
Special features include the herb garden with Bay Tree topiary and sculptures of a little boy playing the flute, a metal heron and distinctive bird bath. The badminton courts were added in 1939, thus generating a Badminton Club that exists to this day. The original gazebo was hand-carried by eight men, relocating it when the swimming pool addition was under way. The gazebo is now draped and serves as a bathhouse in summer. The original barn, which housed Shetland ponies for many years, still stands. Visiting dignitaries have included J. Edgar Hoover, Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Byars (former owners, mid-1930s-1979); Noel Pullam (landscape architect, 1970s); Lambert's (landscape designer, 1930s); Arabella Gardens (landscape features, 1990s- ); Breedlove Nursery (landscape features, 1950s).

Newport -- The Whim

Place:
The Whim (Newport, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Newport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles, historic photographs, and landscape architect's plans, transcripts of interviews, and other information.
General:
The Whim is a seaside New England garden comprised of flower and shrub borders and a sunken quadrangle planted along the foundation walls of demolished greenhouses, with follies, sculptures, steps to the ocean planted with lavender, and swaths of lawn. The walls and privet hedges trimmed to calibrated heights protect the flowers from the salt spray and winds off the ocean while not blocking the view. The 3.4 acre property has other garden areas surrounding the lawns, including a border of bright blue Nikko hydrangeas that are fed aluminum sulfate, a crabapple border, a shed draped with a climbing rose, a secret garden with kousa dogwood and viburnum, and a shady garden walk alongside the house. Garden areas are named for the animal and other sculptures that are featured, including a heron by Walter Matia in the heron quadrangle, eagles at the head of the eagle borders, and rabbits copied from the ones that were at Chateau-sur-Mer, a Newport mansion.
This property was once part of a larger property that had gardens designed by Beatrix Farrand for her aunt, the author Edith Wharton. The Evangeline climbing rose that covers the tool shed was transplanted from the Wharton garden many years ago, and renamed the Miss Newport rose by the owner. Friends and associates have contributed design ideas and artifacts to this garden: the mushroom shaped garden furniture once belonged to a friend, the gazebo was purchased and installed by one of the gardeners, and the steps were fabricated from discarded Newport curbing.
Persons associated with the garden include Raymond Thayer, (landscape architect, 1968-present); T. J. Brown and Timothy Brown, (gardeners, 1952-present); Anne Baptista (property manager, 1989-present); and Jerica Ford (gardener, 2007-present).

Scope and Contents:

General:
Standen is a urban garden with a Tudor style house that has been modified by the current owners, with gardens developed over more than 40 years. Standen incorporates a series of garden rooms for rest and reflection, a woodland walk, and sculpture. The owners first removed overgrown native rhododendrons and yews, added brick terraces, one sunken and walled to accommodate the slope. The existing brick walk to the front door was pulled up and relaid by the owner to curve around the shrubbery. The garden rooms were designed with focal points, such as a fish pond with a heron fountain, a family heirloom. Flagstone walkways lead to paths into woodlands gardens that were created by bisecting shady borders on two sides of the property. Teak furniture on flagstone platforms blends into a woodlands garden room, wrought iron furniture suits the patios and there is a child-sized set of furniture outside a trellis-trimmed playhouse for grandchildren. A tool shed is tucked into a corner, and large blue ceramic urns and animal and human statues are placed as focal points.

River High (Cincinnati, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Hamilton County -- Cincinnati
Scope and Contents:
The folders include work sheets, copies of landscape plans, newspaper and periodical articles, additional visual images, and planting lists.
General:
"River High" represents one of Cincinnati's most characteristic architectural types: the large house set on a wooded hill-top and oriented toward a view of the Ohio River Valley. Built in 1912, the house combines English Georgian and American Colonial Revival with influences of the Arts and Crafts style. "River High" is perceived at first as a long, substantial, dark red brick mass with the original slate roof, lying athwart a shallow bowl of lawn, with the drive winding down to the entrance and sweeping back to the road. The architects' intent was to block the view until the house had been penetrated; when the riverscape appears at the end of the central hallway. The house consists of three main blocks. The lower porch on the left opens onto the reconstructed formal garden that extends the axis of the house eastward. The lower porch leads out onto the lawn that descends gradually through a formal parterre with a pool and fountain. Symmetrical plantings frame this lower lawn. In 2005 the front arrival courtyard was transformed and is now centered with the formal front entrance in keeping with the symmetrical Georgian style of the house. The new design features a fountain with waterfall and a sculpture of two great blue herons as well as seasonal display beds for annuals, a serpentine retaining wall, landscape lighting, and a unique bench sculpture. Completing the picture are custom-designed wrought iron gates, 19th-century Italian urns, and ornamental and shade trees.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: George H. Warrington (former owner, 1912-1951); Rosemary Sawyer Richardson (former owner, 1951-1989); Albert Davis Taylor (landscape architect, 1917); Eleanor H. Christie (landscape architect, ca. 1917-1951?); Dalton W. Battin (landscape architect, 1980); Stu Hoffman, Natorp Landscape Organization, Inc.

Place:
Mountain View Garden (Alstead, New Hampshire)
United States of America -- New Hampshire -- Stafford County -- Lee
Scope and Contents:
Mountain View related holdings consist of 1 folder (18 35 mm. slides (photographs)). The folder includes worksheets, site plans, photocopies of articles about the project, and other information.
General:
Located on one hundred twenty acres, Mountain View's garden, first established in the 1930s, is developed on three of those acres. After consulting with landscape designers, Christian Fenderson and Gordon Hayward in 1975, the present owners decided to rely on their own talent and labor to resurrect the neglected landscape. They restored the walled perennial garden and made the original pond longer and narrower, adding an island and a bridge. A path curves down the hill from the house to the pond buttressed by stone walls and flanked on one side by roses and cutting gardens. Next to it, an arbor and fountain feature restored by artist and neighbor Bob Taylor, stands in the more formal gardens on the north side of the house. A white garden featuring woodland and shade plants borders the southwestern path to the guest cottage and frames one side of the pond. Several architectural elements have been added to the garden such as a copper heron sculpture by J. Donald Felix, a copper peacock statue, birdbaths, sundial, benches, fences, and a swing. The garden blooms from mid-April to mid-November with many well-chosen combinations of perennials and annuals that blend with the surrounding woods.
Persons associated with this property are: Gardner S. Shephard (former owner, ca. 1858-1892); Timothy Tufts (former owner, 1892-1905); Harry Wiggin Bennett (former owner, 1905-1952); Andasia R. Bennett (former owner, 1952-1964); Bob Taylor (artist and welder) and J. Donald Felix (artist).

The house features a U-shaped flagstone patio with a stone wall, fountain and pool. Features include a cutting garden, herb garden, vegetable garden, a small orchard for apple and pear trees, an asparagus bed, a cold frame and a raised strawberry bed.
