General:
Built in 1898 on the shores of Lake Geneva as a summer home for a New York City family, Flowerside Inn once employed up to 15 gardeners to maintain its extensive formal landscaping. The current owners purchased the property in 1976, and, after restoring the house, turned to the gardens, which had suffered from years of neglect. All that remained were the stately maples that shaded the home from the summer sun, while a weed-ridden lawn marched to the lakeside door and broken black asphalt greeted the drive door. With the help of a nationally renowned landscaping firm and the personal knowledge of the owner, who is active in the Lake Geneva Garden Club, the entire grounds have been landscaped with native species and more modern hybrids bred to withstand harsh winter winds and searing summer sun. The lake to the south is now fully exposed with a shoreline of flag iris, roses and daylilies combined with hosta and astilbe where the tree shade blocks the sun. A pier house, dragged one winter onto the shore, is now an attractive shoreside gazebo. The kitchen bay window looks out on a rose garden and birdbath.
The drive entrance on the north side of the home has been curved to lead gently to the front door and paved with bricks reflecting the brown tones of the landscaping. The edges have been planted with hawthornes, hosta, daylilies, coneflowers, hydrangeas, roses, liatris, daisies, peonies, azaleas, sedum, and other perennials, supplemented with annuals left over from the planting of window boxes that line the second story windows and the front entrance. An antique English garden wagon sits on the drive loaded with pots of annual flowers. There is variety in both color and green plant material throughout the growing season. A rambling perennial bed provides cut flowers, and the recently added "deer garden" provides a protected environment in which the owner can grow roses and lilies together with bellflowers, coreopsis, zinnias, sunflower, and vegetables without the fear of the deer. She built a "tennis court" which has a 10.5 foot black-clad chain link fence (too high for the deer to jump), and covered the fence with annual and perennial vines. Fencing continues underground for 18 inches, so even the little wild folk are denied the garden greens for their salad. Recent acquisitions include a 1900s gazing ball, marble statues of the four seasons, and a bench beneath an arbor.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Simeon B. Chapin (former owner, ca. 1896); William Trinke (former owner, ca. 1952); Benjamin H. Marshall (architect, 1896 and 1906); James Nagle (architect, 1999); and The Brickman Group (landscape designers, 1993-1997).

General:
Most gardens in Charleston, South Carolina's historic district are small pocket gardens: this property has a half-acre divided into seven distinct garden rooms in addition to the 1806 Federal style house and the 1823 Gothic Revival style brick carriage house. When the current owners found this property in 1993 both buildings were derelict and nothing remained of the historic garden which was an asphalt parking lot. After the buildings were restored the owners removed the asphalt and underlying cobblestones, brought in topsoil and compost, and installed boxwood and other hedges and picket fencing painted dark green to divide the property into garden rooms. Although influenced by French and Baroque styles the formal structure predominantly resembles Italianate style gardens, with a color palette of green and white with accents in pink and purple from azaleas, camellias, crape myrtles and roses. Walkways are comprised of dark gray crushed slag, old bricks found on the property and elsewhere are stood on end and used as edging, and a brick Gothic style folly used as a garden shed was built.
The long driveway is the main axis, comprised of two cobblestone runways set in St. Augustine grass with globe-shaped boxwood hedges on either side. A formal parterre garden is along one side (opposite the main house) with two beds in the shape of Celtic crosses, a repeating shape in other garden rooms. There are Luytens benches at either end, and a hedge of alternating holly and cypress along the property line. The next room is known as the sitting garden where there is another Luytens bench under an arbor of confederate jasmine, a wall sculpture of Bacchus and a table and chairs for dining. In the back corner of the property there is a shade garden with tropical plants in a looser, less rectilinear style than the other rooms with irregular bluestone paving. The car park garden at the end of the driveway has the Gothic folly, brick edging and wrought iron gates with the same quatrefoil design as the carriage house.
The carriage house faces the formal garden which has four quadrants edged in boxwood, each with a standard bay tree, with a circular bed of crossed boxwood hedges in the center. The rose garden, outlined with boxwood, is in the shape of a teardrop or paisley motif and has a 19th century Celtic cross used as a trellis for noisette roses. The herb garden with remnants of the brick wall of the historic kitchen outbuilding is tucked between the carriage house and the main house.
Persons associated with the garden include: John Harleston (former owner, before 1795); John Rutledge (former owner, circa 1795); Isaac Motte Dart (former owner, 1801-1815); Edward Washington North (former owner, 1824-1845); members of the Simons family (former owners, 1845-1859); American Missionary Association (former owner, 1930-1950); Palmer College (former owner, 1954-1973); Historic Charleston Foundation (former owner, until 1993); Richard Marks (conservator of the house, 1993-1996); Eugene Gaillard Johnson (landscape designer, 1993- ).

Varying Form:
Frog Pond
General:
The New Jersey Woodland Property comprises 3.5 acres, a Colonial Revival house designed by architect Rolf W. Bauhan (1892-1966) in 1959, and ten distinct garden areas that the owner has been developing since 1981. Among the first area encountered is wooded lot bordered by preserved open space, a spring-fed pond, a swimming pool, and a graceful curving entry with bluestone steps and mature rhododendron and mountain laurel. Problems to overcome included a huge native deer population, undeveloped areas where invasive plants thrived, heavy clay soil, a cinder block retaining wall near the swimming pool, and the competing roots and canopies of mature trees that had to be accommodated in the landscape designs. The owner undertook a three-year course of study at the Barnes Arboretum, installed a six-foot tall deer fence around the property, and found the right plant for the right place, taking into account light, soil conditions and terrain. The style of the gardens is naturalized, with different species intermingling, rather than formally planted garden beds.
The entry courtyard was improved by replacing black asphalt with stone pavers, installing a brick retaining wall and piers, and planting bulb, perennial and shrub gardens under existing trees. The front path to the main entrance of the house is a bluestone walkway bordered by rhododendron and mountain laurel under planted with hosta, tiarella, euonymous and other ground covers. The pool terrace is in full sun, and features a 50-year-old wisteria that wraps around the house, Chippendale style gates lead to the pool, and vistas of the other gardens, pond and woodlands due to its higher elevation. Dwarf conifers are planted under the overhanging roof.
A perennial garden that replaced grass on the south side of the house was the owner's first project, with stone retaining walls defining the space. The eastern border of the property features unusual rhododendron. `The cryptomeria garden is a small woodland screen that features naturalized plantings. The woodland garden was designed with a meandering stone path and beds of naturalized perennials and shrubs but the soil was poor and needed yearly additions of leaf compost. A tennis court and outdoor room were installed in 1987 near Stony Brook and the designated open space. The banks of the pond created from a spring by the previous owners are accessible for bass fishing, with the outer perimeter planted in trees and shrubs that screen the property from the street.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Stanley (former owners, 1959-1981); Rolf W. Bauhan (architect, 1959); Robert S. Bennett (architect, 1997, 2008); David M. Lenker (landscape architect, 1959); Doerler Landscapes (landscape architect, 1973, 1975); S. Lawrence Bencze (landscape architect, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1995); Barbara J. Olejnik, CLA (landscape architect, 2000-2002); Ann Mallory (sculptor of "Forest Pool"); Roger Ditarando (sculptor of "Bird's Nest"); Charlotte Calwell Stokes (sculptor of "Francis of Assisi")

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, site plans (one with a plant list), photocopies of an article about the garden, and additional information.
General:
Lying on 3.2 acres adjacent to a marsh and creek, this site is highlighted by a Japanese-influenced 40' x 80' iris garden that also includes features of a cottage garden in keeping with its location by a low, rambling house. Designed in the early 1980s by Nancy B. Taylor of the landscape architecture firm Innocenti & Webel, the garden replaced what was formerly an asphalt driveway. Running the length of the garden are a dry riverbed and path, accented by two small bridges. Although there is no actual water in the garden, the use of different plants helps to simulate that effect. In addition to this garden, the site includes more natural areas with marsh and water views, as well as a swimming pool and herb garden.
Persons and firms associated with the property include Nancy B. Taylor (landscape architect, 1981); Mr. and Mrs. C. Gachot (former owners, 1956-1981); and Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1981).

Casa Favorita (Pasadena , California)
Scope and Contents:
18 digital images (2019) and 1 file folder.
General:
The half-acre property had a 1924 salmon colored Italian revival style house with three mature live oaks and tapestry hedges when the current owners moved there in 1996. They enclosed the front courtyard with matching stucco walls and wrought iron gates, changed the hardscape from asphalt to decomposed granite, and re-routed the walkway to the front door to showcase a live oak. Forest green is used as an accent color on shutters and large ceramic jars, and salmon-colored azaleas were planted in the foundation beds. Azalea standards, a matching climbing rose, and a collection of pink zonal geraniums in terra cotta pots create a unified palette in the front garden. Formal parterres were built along one side of the house and planted with pastel-colored hybrid tea and floribunda roses and lavender, with a fountain and small stone bench. On the same axis and through a small gate there is another set of four parterres planted with daffodils, delphinium or zinnia in season with a second fountain in the center.

More potted zonal geraniums are displayed on a low wall at one end of the pink stone terrace, succeeded by a patch of lawn and another live oak and sitting area. A 60-foot long vegetable garden for heirloom tomatoes at the back of the property has been replaced by a bocce ball court. A swimming pool was built with concrete planters at the corners for lemon and orange trees in keeping with the Mediterranean style. A salmon colored loggia with comfortable seating has been added along the side of the pool where there is a small waterfall. A shady side of the garden has a large mirror with ornamental banana plants, clipped boxwood, potted plants and two small statues. The owners named their property Casa Favorita honoring Mexican tradition.

Persons associated with the garden include: Hannah Nevin Shaw and Major Roy A. Shaw (former owners, 1923-1958); James Drake MacNeil (former owner, 1958-1968); Phillip Cushing McGrath (former owner, 1968-1996); James R. Shoch and Elena Miller Shoch (owners, 1996- ); Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury (architects, 1924); James J. Yoch (1938-2018) (landscape designer, 1996-1997); Thomas Batcheller Cox (landscape designer, 2007-2012).
