Place:
Dinesti (Reisterstown, Maryland)
United States of America -- Maryland -- Baltimore -- Reisterstown
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The Dinesti garden comprises 14 acres of which four acres are landscaped, ten acres are woodlands, and 1,000 square feet are fenced for growing vegetables, herbs and fruit. The large vegetable garden and pathways were added by the owners after 2003 to the already established landscape. Mature flowering trees and shrubs, some of which produce fruit for the owners and wildlife, shade expansive lawns. Varieties that add fall and winter color have been planted, including smoke bush, weeping spruce and Japanese red pine, and some older diseased trees have been replaced. There is a curving swimming pool with a curvy wooden retaining wall with a nearby stand of ornamental grasses to add movement. Brightly colored pool furniture, Adirondack chairs and whimsical garden art add spots of color in addition to the deeply planted beds of perennials, one sunny and one shady with native plants. Fragrant herbs and ornamentals are grown next to the screened porch and patio to add scent outside the house. Beds of daffodils along the driveway and throughout the garden provide spring color, followed by the flowering trees, spring and summer perennials, fall color from the trees and shrubs, and interesting shapes from evergreens in winter.
Persons associated with the garden include Joanne H. Diamond and Frank Pronesti (owners, 2003-present) and James & Virginia Potter (former owners, 1981-2003).

Fairview -- Dunmovin

Provenance:
Carrie T. Watson Garden Club  Search this
Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Dunmovin (Fairview, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Erie -- Fairview
Scope and Contents:
1 folder, 20 digital images and 23 digital prints. The folder includes worksheets and additional images.
General:
When purchased in 1973 Dunmovin comprised a house on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie surrounded by a blank slate of about two acres of grass enclosed by another seven acres of woodlands. The owners have created eight gardens, one for vegetables and the other seven for perennials, shrubs, evergreens, meandering stone walkways and statuary. Their first 15-foot-long perennial garden border planted in trucked in topsoil has expanded to be 100 feet along the circular driveway with another 80 foot garden border mirroring it across the lawn. A rose garden planted with hybrid teas has evolved to contain knockout roses, a weeping cherry, a flowering almond, rose of Sharon bushes, and a wisteria arbor. Raspberry and blackberry canes climb the fence of the vegetable garden, and there are fruit trees planted further out. A large shade garden has lady's mantle, ferns, a variegated willow tree and hemlocks. Dwarf conifers in a bed at the front of the house have outgrown their space and are being moved one at a time. A slightly raised bed outside the screened porch has hydrangeas, moon flowers, ageratum, and a view of a mature weeping willow, hostas and pachysandra. Beyond this garden there is an all-white memorial garden for a deceased member of the family. The transition from lawn to woodlands is softened by plantings of evergreens.
The lake and sandy beach are important features of the property for recreation and stunning sunsets. An 80 foot groin barrier and a seawall at the bottom of the bluff were built to mollify lake activity and control erosion. A circular stone patio with an inlaid compass rose was built on a spot overlooking the lake and furnished with Adirondack chairs and tables painted light blue. A 10-inch dawn redwood specimen found in a nursery years ago now towers over the house. A creek that feeds into Lake Erie marks the border of the property on one side and is tapped for water for the gardens. Other amenities include a rope swing and a hammock in the shade.
Persons associated with the garden include Tom Raines (former owner, 1919-1946); Paul Stephany (former owner, 1946-1960); D.
