General:
Louise Jordan's Garden was started in 1950, when the house was built and trees, including live oak, crabapple, purple leaf plum and cherry, were planted. The one-acre property includes large swathes of lawn used for family games, a tennis court, and a large terrace behind the house used for entertaining. A mature cedar elm tree planted in 1974 shades that terrace. Around the perimeter of the property are deep garden borders planted with flowers, ferns, fruit trees and shrubs, with a circular rose bed sited in the lawn just beyond the terrace. The beds and borders behind the house and surrounding the terrace are circular or curving in shape while the raised beds in front of the house are rectangular.
Some of the garden's flowers are self-sowing, such as nasturtium and larkspur. A greenhouse is located in the back corner of the property, with quince growing alongside. Azaleas and dogwood were planted in front of the house in 1968 on the occasion of the present owner's wedding. The early garden was designed by Dallas landscape architect Joe Lambert, known for introducing simplified shapes and a particular shade of green paint to the region. The original design included a horse stable and riding arena that were removed in 1958 when Dallas landscape architect Naud Burnett redesigned the garden, relocating a large vegetable garden to make room for the tennis court. Few of the original 30 live oak or fruit trees remain.
Other features include garden statuary of St. Francis of Assisi, a pastoral tableau, stone rabbits, and metal reindeer.
Persons associated with the garden include Joe Lambert (landscape architect); Houston Bliss (landscape architect); Naud Burnett (landscape architect circa 1958).

General:
When purchased in 2004 this nine-acre property had a single-story main house, an indoor pool, changing rooms, six-car garage, apartment unit and two acres of invasive bamboo, kudzu, poison ivy and akebia. The house was transformed with the addition of wings, two more stories, and a classical pediment; all the other buildings were demolished. Two hundred feet of classically styled formal gardens were installed with new outbuildings. A stone wall with two flights of stairs at the entrance to the garden also acts as a retaining wall. A garden of concentric circles replaced the swimming pool, with a round reflecting pool and bubbler fountain enclosed in limestone coping at the center, surrounded by a ring of turf, encircled by a pea gravel walkway and then a ring of boxwood. A straight pea gravel path bordered by lawn and boxwood hedges planted in a key pattern leads to another lawn enclosed by a 10-foot tall circus of hornbeam. At one end of this lawn there is a circle of boxwood around a stand of nicotiana with an urn planted with lavender at the center. The one-room dining pavilion folly at the other end of the lawn has two water tanks with bubblers. Perennials and bulbs were planted along the perimeters and in the spaces formed by boxwood designs at the front of the house.
The woodland gardens were planted with native ferns, bleeding heart, more than 50,000 Spanish bluebells (Hyacinthoides-hispanica 'Excelsior') and 40,000 scilla-siberica, interplanted to extend the blooming season. Additional outbuildings include a hexagonal garden shed that is a privy and a chicken house for 12 hens next to raised vegetable garden beds. The hens tend these beds after the growing season, consuming plant stalks, weed seeds, grubs and insects and leaving behind 1,000 pounds of organic fertilizer for the next year.
Persons associated with the garden include Brooke Spencer (landscape designer, 2004- ); Madison Spencer (architect, 2004- ).

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).

General:
Located in a retirement community, this small garden is comprised of three hundred square feet of gardens designed for a townhouse. The 10 by 10 foot front garden has low maintenance evergreens including a camellia, low hollies, ground cover, ivy, mondo grass, ferns and hardy cyclamens with a piece of local schist as a feature. The garden at the rear is more extensive and includes a terrace garden with container plants that is four feet deep and eight and one-half inches long, wrought iron outdoor furniture and a custom built shed. A climbing Gold Flame honeysuckle with orange flowers covers the roof of the shed in summer and attracts hummingbirds. A flagstone path divides the garden beyond a low sitting wall into two planting beds that are filled with flowering trees and shrubs including hydrangea and clematis, boxwood used as an edging, herbs and perennials. Ornaments include a rabbit weathervane, whimsical birdhouses and a bird feeding platform.
Glass windows and a glass siding door enhance bird watching from inside the townhouse. The crab apple and magnolia trees in the back garden and the shrubs create a private space for the owners.
Persons associated with the garden include Alice Farley (garden designer, 2003); Leslie Purple (garden designer, 2003).
