General:
Established in 1869, this now mostly vanished garden was the 150-acre estate of Harvard professor and Arnold Arboretum director Charles Sprague Sargent (1841-1927). An amalgamation of several older holdings, Holm Lea was noted for its size, the variety of its trees and shrubs, its broad expanses of lawn and meadow, and its vistas and natural woods. As noted by Andrew Jackson Downing in the second edition of his work on landscape gardening published in 1844, much of the groundwork was laid by Thomas Lee, an owner prior to Sargent, who planted trees and shrubs such as rhododendron and kalmia. By the early 1900s the garden's collection of these plants was considered to be outstanding. A later writer noted that Holm Lea "is the most inspiring estate in the United States and the best specimen of landscape-gardening in America because every department of country life is here represented in due proportion without extravagance or faddism, and all are blended into a beautiful and useful picture which is nothing short of exquisite." Among Holm Lea's other features were a rock garden, a pond, and a small herd of cows that added to the picturesque aspect of the landscape. Charles Sander, Holm Lea's gardener for more than 30 years, was a recognized plantsman and Massachusetts Horticultural Society award winner. Although the estate was subdivided after Sargent's death, elements of the garden, including the now algae-choked pond and overgrown rock garden, still survived in the 1990s.
Persons associated with the garden include: Thomas Lee (former owner, ca. 1825-ca. 1864); Charles Sprague Sargent (former owner, 1869-1927); and Charles Sander (gardener, 1875-ca. 1910).
In addition to the 41 original images, there are 16 additional black and white 35 mm. slides, copies of photographs in The Public Library of Brookline, 361 Washington Street, Brookline, MA 024445.

Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum (New Bedford, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Bristol County -- New Bedford
General:
Named for several previous owners, the Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum incorporates a Greek Revival style house designed in 1834 by architect Richard Upjohn with a garden encompassing a city block. Original owner William Rotch, Jr., a whaling entrepreneur and civic leader, would become the father-in-law of James Arnold, benefactor of the Arnold Arboretum. The current garden largely reflects the Jones family's period of stewardship (1851-1935) and includes a formal boxwood rose parterre, a gazebo-like pergola, a formal cutting garden, and an award winning woodland/wildflower walk. Significant changes were also made by Boston landscape architect Mrs. John Coolidge during the Duff family's residence. Founded in 1983, the museum is a partner in the New Bedford Whaling Museum National Historical Park.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: William Rotch, Jr. (former owner, 1834-1851); Edward Coffin Jones and his daughter Amelia Hickling Jones (former owners, 1851-1935); Mark and Beatrice Duff (former owners, 1935-1981); the Waterfront Historic Area League (WHALE) (former owner, 1981-1985); Richard Upjohn (architect, 1834); William Howard (gardener, 1847-1890); Mrs. John Coolidge (landscape architect, 1937); and Sue Underwood (architect of cutting garden,1994).

Scope and Contents:

General:
Old Farm has a sunken and enclosed garden designed in 1912-1913 by Ellen Biddle Shipman in the Colonial Revival style to complement the 17th century farm house, described as a cloistered space within the more than one hundred acres of fields and woodlands that comprise this property. The garden was one of Shipman's earliest documented professional commissions, a rectangular plot sub-divided by stone and gravel walks into smaller rectangular beds surrounded by a low dry stone wall. At the far end there is a stone apse or excedrae with room for outdoor seating and a lily pond, now dry. Shipman's original stone terrace directly behind the house, stone walkway down the middle of the garden, and stone steps that lead up to the excedrae have grown over with grass and the American elm trees that shaded the enclosed garden have been replaced by other mature trees. The flower beds have been retained in their original shapes and siting, and have three distinct seasons of blooms: first daffodils, followed by irises, phlox and peonies, then fall asters.
The original 17th century house had rooms on either side of the chimney in front with a lean-to rear section. In the late 19th century the rear section was raised to two stories, and in the early 20th century the house was restored by preservation specialist Joseph Everett Chandler. Ellen Biddle Shipman added trellises for vines and a garden in front of the house planted with boxwood, roses and oleander.
Persons associated with the garden include: John H. B. Kent (former owner, 1836-1910); Benjamin F. and Adelaine L. Peach (former owners, 1899-1910); Alanson L. and Frances Pomeroy Daniels (former owners, 1910-1933); John S. and Mary B. Amory (former owners, 1933-1961); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, 1912-1913); Joseph Everett Chandler (preservation architect, 1915); Lawrence Tennis (gardener, 2004- ); Beverly Benson Seamans (1928-2012) (sculptor).

General:
This property has been owned since the mid-17th century, with the first small house built circa 1690 and the present Georgian style house first built in 1792, designed by William Spratt, a British architect who practiced in Connecticut after being imprisoned during the Revolutionary War. The property has been owned by members of only two families during most of its history, including Anna Roosevelt Cowles, the older sister of President Theodore Roosevelt, who had the first ornamental garden installed circa 1900, replacing what had been a barnyard. According to family lore Frederick Law Olmsted's architectural firm designed the garden but no documentation has been found supporting that claim. At present the 1.75 acre property is described as a green garden comprised of spacious lawns with island perennial beds, various boxwood hedges, and mature trees planted in the 1950s that include some notable specimens. There is a non-chlorinated cement swimming pool that supplies water for the sprinklers in the garden. An old smokehouse in one corner of the garden is used as a toolshed.
The woodland gardens around the perimeter of the property date back to the earliest landscape design but the original rose and cutting gardens have been replaced by lawns. Island beds with perennials, bulbs and shrubs have been cut into the lawns breaking up its mostly rectilinear shape. In the 1930s a high stone wall replaced the original picket fence along the dirt road in front of the house, retaining the original 1792 Chinese Chippendale-style gate designed by Spratt said to be based on a water gate in London, England that he knew. In recent years walkways have been added, the pool has been fenced for safety, and a new flower bed was created next to a new low stone wall.
Oldgate features several historic trees documented by the Connecticut Notable Tree project in 2007: a Nordmann fir, a Kousa dogwood, a Royal Empress Paulownia, a fragrant snowbell and a southern Japanese hemlock all have been cited as among the largest of their species in the state. There is a dawn redwood in the garden believed to be descended from seeds found in China in the 1940s that were germinated at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. Storms have made changes to the mature trees that shaded this garden, including the snowstorm of October 2011 that felled a paulownia and scores of branches from other trees, necessitating more watering and more planting of trees, particularly native species.
Persons associated with the garden include Hooker family members (former owners, 1645-1733); John Nash and Samuel Nash (former owners, 1733-1747); Isaac Bidwell (former owner, 1747-1792); Cowles family members (owners 1792- ); William Spratt (architect , circa 1792); William Sheffield Cowles, Jr. and Margaret Krech Cowles (garden designers (1932-1986); Bill Cowles (architect, 1986-1995); Evan Cowles (landscape architect, 1986- ); George Manus (sculptor, 2002); Gordon Hayward (garden designer, 2010).

General:
The owner's first project after obtaining the one-third acre garden in 1951 was to create a private space with tall wooden fences in back and trees: hemlock, spruce, pine, kousa dogwood, holly and amur cork. The front yard lawn has a granite boulder set in one side of a wide brick walk with hawthorn and cork on the other side, spreading yew mixed with pink and white azaleas in the foundation bed of the gray stucco Cape Cod house, and antique lead containers with seasonal planting. Alongside and behind the house there are three areas: the entry borders, the terrace and lawn, and the wildflower garden. A decorative gate painted yellow-green opens to the entry garden with mixed borders: yew and holly foundation plants, witch hazel, crabapple and Cornelian cherry dogwood for late winter and early spring bloom, mixed spring bulbs and a white Japanese tree peony, and hosta and colorful annuals in summer. A low mound of Japanese maple marks off the corner granite terrace added in 1960 that is surrounded by beds of flowering shrubs, spring bulbs, black-eyed Susan and verbena in summer, shaded by kousa dogwood and hemlock. Climbing hydrangea and akebia have grown up the cedar stockade fence. There is a bench copying one seen in Denmark made from a thick teak plank set between two granite cubes and other decorative features.

A stretch of lawn leads to a shady wildflower garden planted with ferns, Solomon's seal, European ginger, many bulbs including scilla, fritillary, trout lily, trillium and narcissus; spring flowering shrubs and white oak-leaf hydrangea, and yew, hemlock, holly and a very tall ash for shade. There are two beehives behind the house that provide honey for the owner. Additions to the house include a deck and bluestone patio where there are two sculptures by Beverly Seamans: Walter the Poodle and Roger the Red, a Rhode Island red rooster. Trees and shrubs are the mainstays of this garden and provide changing colors each season, from flowering white and yellow in spring and summer to red and yellow leaves in autumn. The owner has employed knowledge about gardening gleaned from guided walks through the Arnold Arboretum with Dr. Donald Wyman and her certification from Radcliffe in landscape design in her plant selection, color coordination, placement and maintenance for a garden that is naturalistic yet elegant. She has been a professional landscape consultant for private and larger civic and commercial gardens and has instigated beautification projects in Cambridge.

Persons associated with the garden include: Emily Howard (former owner, 1914-c.1928); Abbie Nichols (former owner, c.1928-1951); Beverly Benson Seamans (1928-2012) (sculptor, no dates available); Julia Child (donor of garden decorations, 2001); Allen Haskell (nurseryman, no dates available).
