Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, detailed information about the garden's plants, photocopies of articles about the garden, background details from and about the owners, and additional information.
General:
Located on three acres in Memphis, Tennessee, the Bickie McDonnell Garden is comprised of a main lawn, herbaceous border, formal rose and pool gardens, vegetable garden, and upper and lower woodland gardens. Before the house was built or any planting could begin the site was cleared of overgrown privet and mulberry vines, only the white oak and hickory trees were left in place. In 1980 Memphis artist and landscape designer Tom Pellett working with the owner initiated a plan for the property that emphasized the dramatic vistas and discreet gardens. More than just one large garden, the owner has created a series of gardens that merge seemlessly one to the next. Native varieties of wildflowers, trees and shrubs are featured, and river rocks, boulders, old cobblestones and bricks gathered in the region were repurposed as structural elements of the garden.
Dramatic vistas define this garden. Pea gravel and brick walkways, stone paths, and a dry creek bed lead from vista to vista. Hardwood trees, indigenous to the area and the most striking characteristic of the landscape, provide structure and frame long views. Several sculptures are featured in garden rooms, as well as Corinthian columns. A dry creek bed spanned by a wooden bridge is filled with fieldstone and boulders from Arkansas. The main garden paths are comprised of pea gravel edged in brick, with a brick walkway to access the formal rose garden and gazebo.
Persons associated with the garden include Tom Pellett (landscape designer, 1980-present); Jasper Jones (gardener, 1980-present); Oscar Menzev (architect, date unknown).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, architectural plans, and additional documentation.
General:
Situated on a narrow half acre property established in 2001, the Holland Garden serves as an excellent example of a small urban garden that maximizes limited space. Though the residence is only 25 feet on either side from neighboring homes, a sense of privacy is achieved with the use of hardscaping and architectural plantings. A cobblestone motor court at the front of the house greets visitors with raised flower beds and container plantings. A shade garden runs the length of the house along the east wall of the property, which also features two vertical gardens flanking the wall. Stepping stones lead through the shade garden to the main garden which features a limestone terrace and a raised 20-yard lap pool with spa tub and fountain.
Lambert Landscape Company received the 33rd Annual Environmental Improvement Grand Award from the Associated Landscape Contractors of America for their design of the Holland Garden. Designed to complement the contemporary Texas hill country architectural style of the home, the garden reflects the clean modern lines of the residence by incorporating limestone and salvaged brick hardscaping and architectural plantings of bamboo, equisetum and red yucca juxtaposed with native plantings of cedar elm, sumac, yaupon, leucophyllum, rudbeckia and hesperaloe to soften the lines of hardscaping and provide privacy screening.
Additional garden features include a granite sculpture carved by Texan artist Jesús Moroles, and stone planters designed by Frank Lloyd Wright which are used throughout the property.
Entities associated with the garden include: Frank Welch (architect, 2000-2001); Paul Fields (landscape architect, 2000-2001); Jesus Moroles (sculptor, 2006); and Lambert's Landscape (landscape design, horticulturists, 2001).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, a plant list, and additional information.
General:
A small garden on a quiet street, Oak Terrace is planned to be an extension of its home's interior as a relaxed outdoor space. The entrance to the house features a driveway court shaded by oaks, with laurel and viburnum serving as a screen providing intimacy. Changing annuals along with seasonal arrangements provide color, while aspidistra, xanadu philodendron, ophiopogon, and palms provide varying textures and heights around the parking court. A highlight in the front is a fountain featuring a sculpture of a young girl by artist Tom Corbin. The backyard patio area includes a long series of fountains that form a runnel along the brick wall, lending a New Orleans or Charleston feel to this area. Large mirrors along the brick wall give a sense of infinite space beyond. Planted around this shady garden room are yew trees, elephant ears, foxtail fern, variegated liriope, fan palms, fig ivy, live oaks, and cherry laurels. The garden has been a work in progress since 1980 and many changes have been made over the years. Some earlier landscape designs included unusual and interesting plants that could not take the warm temperatures and dry conditions of San Antonio, so more recently there has been a move to more indigenous and tropical plants that will thrive in the natural climate of the area.
Firms associated with the garden include Casa Verde Landscaping (landscaping contractors, 2002-2005) and Tony Villareal Landscape Design (landscape designers, 2006-2007).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans (with plant names), print copies of two of the slides, and other information.
General:
This one-third acre garden is located in Sessions Village in Columbus, Ohio, a planned community of 29 free standing homes in the architectural style of a walled French village. Its artist-owner's passion for all things relating to the gardens of southern France inspired her to engage a landscape architect whom she primed with words and images of her personal vision and with whom she created a plan that was implemented in 2006. With "no grass" as a design mandate, a comprehensive plan was developed that could be implemented in stages beginning with the rear garden. Few changes had been made to the 1960s garden of the original owners. However, wherever possible existing trees and shrubs were saved and incorporated into the new design. Strong sight lines were created with the use of sweeping paths of brown gravel and bluestone insets. Lavender is used prolifically as an edging plant and boxwood hedges encircle prominent trees and garden features. Perimeter areas along the fence enclosure are pocketed with an abundance of shrubs, shade perennials, and colorful annuals. Masses of seasonal flowers, selected for a succession of bloom, offer the owner-artist an ever-changing palette of colors and a subject for home-based plein air painting.
Persons and firms associated with the site and garden include Mark R. Schieber (landscape architect, 2006); Architectural Gardens, Inc. (landscape architects, 2006); Preston and Julia Davis (former owners, 1962-2005); and Tibbals, Crumley and Musson (architects, 1961).
There is additional documentation of other gardens in Sessions Village. See OH230000-235000.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, garden plan, vegetable garden diary (1943); copies of photographs, and copy of section in Herb Garden Design.
General:
Little Sutton, approximately 80 acres, was built in 1941 as a summer home. A garden plot, large enough to feed the family, was planted north of the house soon after it was built. The south terrace and porch has an outdoor fireplace and is planted with a yellow sedum This is bordered with low field stone walls and edged with roses and blue flowering bulbs. The owners added a square herb garden on the east side of the house near the kitchen door in 1942. In 1956, the main garden (now called the Terraced Garden) drawings were finalized and planted as well as the addition of a swimming pool to the south of the house. The bog garden and "bog pool," added in 1958, is shielded by Mugho pines, hemlock and junipers. Three years later, a more formal herb garden, two lathe houses, a fountain, two terraces edged in red brick rick rack fashion, and an entrance garden were added. The terrace near the house takes full advantage of the view of Mount Everett to the south and west.
Persons associated with the property include:Harding and Seaver (house architects, 1941); Marconica (landscape architects, 1941-?); Edmund G. Wilco (landscape architect, 1952); Sermini and Sons (stone masons); Roy Hare, Jonathan H. Rose (architects, 1963-1997); Santogostino (artist of large garden mosaic)

Ilona's Garden (Williamstown, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Berkshire County -- Williamstown
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
Located on one acre, this property with its enchanting garden of flower borders and majestic trees dates back to the 19th century when the Ide family owned it. Thomas Walsh, the subsequent owner, paid little attention to the upkeep of the grounds, so when the current owners bought it in 1978 they began creating a garden based on classic English gardens. This small, densely planted garden surrounds a charming old carriage barn turned into the central residence. Deep beds along the south, east and north perimeters contain mixed plantings of trees, shrubs, and flowers. Towering trees, borrowed views that look onto acres of neighboring lawns and glimpses of the distant mountains create an expansive sense of the Berkshire landscape.
An urn in the front of the carriage house beckons the visitor to follow the bluestone path and steps that lead from the driveway to a narrow sunken garden. A circular water garden around a central waterfall is visible at the north end of the property. The flanking wide bluestone walkway and seating area are planted with creeping plants. This water area is surrounded by circular borders and a cedar pergola connecting the lily pool to the ornamental kitchen garden. Arches made of local cedar support a mix of vegetables and climbing flowers. Each border has a distinctive identity. An island bed is wrapped around towering old pines, contains a folly, with concrete columns and water dripping into a smaller pool. Foraged pieces of old marble suggest a ruin while the colorful pink and mauve hues and brightly colored flowers growing in clay pots and several broken columns create a sense of whimsy. The focal point of a second island bed is a clematis-covered weathered window frame bearing an inscription from Andrew Marvell's 17th century poem, "The Garden". Looking through this frame captures the landscape beyond and symbolizes the creative act of garden-making, of ordering and framing nature's wildness.
Persons associated with the garden include: Ide Family (former owners, 19th century), Thomas Walsh (former owner, date unknown-1977), Elizabeth Bartels (landscape architect, 1989), Little and Lewis (artists, 2000), Niels Oleson (garden designer, builder, gardener, 2000-present) and Ilona Bell (garden designer and gardener).
