Place:
Garden of Bill Noble (Norwich, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Windsor County -- Norwich
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information, including some plant names.
General:
Located on a 19th-century Vermont farmstead, this garden has been under development since 1991 and is centered around a Greek Revival farmhouse, barn, and barn foundations on 22 acres of terraced lawns, field and woodland. The garden is focused on two acres and possesses a variety of plants not commonly encountered in Vermont gardens, including old-fashioned varieties collected from historic gardens and newer plants from other regions of the country being assessed for garden worthiness in Vermont. The main flower garden consists of four rectangular beds planted as a mixed border with deciduous shrubs, roses, herbaceous perennials, and self-sown annuals. This flower garden opens up westerly onto a lawn bordered by a 70-foot-long stone foundation wall. This border is planted for foliage interest to contrast with the floral display of the main flower garden. A rock garden with troughs is situated on the terrace above the walls in the remains of a former dairy barn, with the deteriorated cement floors providing ideal growing space for a variety of rock and alpine plants. A moss garden lies next to the former dairy in the footprint of a former stable, while the Silver and Gold border, named for the eponymous shrubby dogwood, is a transition from the foundation gardens to a field, with paths mowed into the tall grass. Other areas of interest include a vegetable garden east of the flower garden, borders of shade loving plants, an aster border, banks of native roses; and a slope of fall and winter interest with conifers, evergreen groundcovers and grasses.
March 1, 2008, is the only date indicated for all of the slides, although they appear to have been taken at various times of the year, possibly during 2007.
Persons associated with the site include Betty and Robert McKenzie (former owners, 1924-1990).

General:
Copperheads sits on a 40 acre property in the town of Washington located in Duchess County, New York. The only evidence of a pre-existing garden was a lone Spirea atop the stone driveway wall and mauve peonies scattered throughout the site. The present owners adapted the old cow paths, building, and barn foundation into their garden.

The present garden began in 2001 when the Greek revival house was moved twelve feet during a major restoration project. The owners adapted sites utilized by the previous farmer owners, prompted by the 150-year old time capsule discovered inside a porch column during the renovation. On the foundation of what was once a storage barn, formal double perennial borders were constructed and enclosed by arborvitae hedges roughly following the outline of the barn. Stone steps lead down into the lower half of the garden, flanked by bronze mastiffs. In the center of the perennial garden is a lily pond. A secondary growth of trees was removed to open the view over the foothills of the Berkshires. To the north of the perennial garden, a pool backed by a Doric column pergola replaces the burnt remnants of an old cow barn. A fountain rests under the pergola smothered in Dutchman's pipe, a reference to the Dutch De Forest family that placed the time capsule in the house column. A cutting garden is located beyond the pool. To the west of the pergola on a steep slope, rubble from another building was uncovered. One side of the stone foundation remains functioning as a wall separating an upper path from a small pinery developed on the slope.

While constructing the house, a deep outhouse pit was uncovered revealing shards of Dutch clay pipes, clay storage jars, animal femurs, flower pots, and hand painted pottery. A boxwood parterre was planted on the outhouse site to be used as a vegetable garden. Before the gate is an iron arch topped with a copperhead snake to support a pair of weeping larch. Beside the carriage house is an apple orchard and fruit cage for growing blueberries. A stone pathway winds through a woods garden, complete with a wooden bench. The allee terminates at an urn and behind it grows a large Hydrangea.

In 2012, a teacup garden, called the "Pan Garden," was installed adjacent to the Daffodil Meadow to the right of the driveway. Boursault rhododendrons form a circle around a single Laburnum tree.

Persons associated with the garden include: William Losee (former owner, pre-1841); Isaac N. and Augusta A. De Forest (former owners, 1841-1856); Lawrence Barrow (former owner, 1856-1859); Robert F. and Caroline Johnson (former owners, 1859-1861); Rufus Fuller (former owner, 1861-1878); John Buckley (former owner, 1878-1917); Daniel Buckley (former owner, 1817-1923); Edgar V. Anderson (former owner, 1923-1945); Margaret Middleton (former owner, 1945-1948); Laurence J. Colwell (former owner, 1948-1959); Alfred F. and Rose Rizzolo (former owners, 1959-1972); Irving Gelman (former owner, 1972-1976); Robert Goodstein and Jeanne Goodwin (former owners, 1976-present); Daryl Corsi (stonemason, 2001-2008); Werner Horst (metal artist, 2008-2012); Amy Pelletier Clark (Horticulturalist, 2010-present).
