Place:
Mockingbird Farms (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas County -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, building and landscape plans, blog excerpts, and other information.
General:
Mockingbird Farms operates as a community of friends, the result of a unique combination of a private home and a community garden. The home was built in 1990 and the garden was later established in 2008 after a neighboring plot of land became available. Rather than being subdivided into individual plots, the garden is managed as a single shared plot (humorously referred to as the "communist plot") that also serves as a gathering space for social events as well as a community garden. The members of the garden community share in experimenting with gardening techniques and communicate with each other through a private blog that allows them to coordinate planting and harvesting efforts and to plan social gatherings.
Persons associated with the garden include: Paul Fields, Lambert Landscape Company (landscape architect, 2000, 2008); and Duncan Fultan (landscape architect, 2009).
Related Materials:
Mockingbird Farms related holdings consist of 1 folder (15 35mm slides (photographs); 6 photographic prints)

Place:
Mount Sharon Farm (Orange, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Orange
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, photocopies of articles, blog postings, and garden plans.
General:
The current owners restored the house and then set out to create a series of distinctive, but related, garden rooms using century-old boxwood to frame their creation. The garden enters through the wedding gate to a walled Elizabethan knot garden. Meandering paths lead through a hydrangea and camellia garden and a spring garden full of color and variety. Cross the central walk lined with gigantic boxwood and enter four terraces of formal parterres with arched, rose-covered pergolas and pavilions overlooking yew-enclosed formal rose gardens. The geometric parterre changes with the season and features blue and white anemone de blanda in spring and annuals in summer. An Italianate croquet pitch with fountains and panoramic view is surrounded by pleached European hornbeams. A holly-surrounded badminton lawn, exedrae with sculptured niches, crepe myrtle walk, mixed border, and oval garden culminate in a Moorish gazebo affording views of the rolling countryside. Fountain displays and sculpture abound throughout this garden for all seasons in the classical style.
The flattest parcel in the ten acres of formal gardens was designed as a vegetable and cutting garden, installed In 2006. There are 19 metal-edged square, triangular and rectangular planting beds with bisecting pea gravel paths on North-South and East-West axes. This garden can be entered down steps from the ornamental garden under a lengthy pergola planted with espaliered crabapple trees, or under an arched gateway in the spindle fence punctuated by pairs of shaped boxwood. Climbing vegetables are supported on hand-hewn cedar tuteurs or in wire cages; beds are mulched with straw. The potager combines function with classical symmetry. Plants include tomatoes, cucumber, cantaloupe, strawberries, raspberries, asparagus, dill, lavender, basil, sweet potatoes, zinnias, and daylilies.
Persons associated with the garden include: Taliaferro family (former owners, 1724-1935); Mr. and Mrs. Ellsworth Augustus (former owners, 1935-1955); Mrs. Nancy Sasser Eldredge (former owner, 1955-1980); Mr. and Mrs. John S. Clark (former owners, 1985-1995); Louis Bancel LaFarge (architect, 1935-1938); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, 1936-1938); and Charles J. Stick (landscape architect, 1998- ).
