United States of America -- Washington -- King County -- Seattle
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a site plan, an abbreviated plant list, and additional descriptive information about the garden.
General:
This expansive, three-acre garden lies on the west shore of Lake Washington. The lawn stretches east from the house to the water. It is bordered by deep flower beds anchored by broadleaf evergreen and deciduous shrubs, flowering trees, and towering conifers. On the north side a separate vine-covered garage with living quarters above is finished with the same pale pink stucco as the main house. A butterfly garden and vegetable and fruit orchard lead to the water. A lushly planted path defines the south side of the property, opening out into a flower and shrub border that ends at the lake. A bamboo grove is placed here for privacy. A basalt fountain just outside the front door on the west side echoes the serenity felt throughout the property. The land slopes upward to the street above and is dominated by a large American hornbeam tree, spring bulbs, and camouflaged tennis courts.
Persons associated with the garden include: M. Griffiths (former owner, 1928-1946); William Jensen (former owner, 1946-1966); Furman and Susan B. Moseley (former owners, 1966-2000); Terry Reckard (landscape designer, late 1960s); Terry Welch (landscape designer, late 1960s); Russell Link (landscape designer, late 1980s); Ken Philip (landscape designer, late 1980s); Tim Prendergast (landscape designer, late 1980s); Arthur Lee Jacobson (arborist, 1989); Mary Robson (consultant, 1991); Mike Kane (gardener, 1990-2000); Cass Turnbull (consultant, 1999); and Paula Ames (gardener, 2000-).

Scope and Contents note:
The Perry H. Wheeler Collection includes the design, client and business records of Perry H. Wheeler, a landscape architect best known for his work on numerous townhouse gardens in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. during the 1960s as well as the redesign of the White House Rose Garen in collaboration with Rachel ('Bunny') Lambert Mellon during the Kennedy adminstration. The collection includes photographic images, plans, drawings, client correspondence, plant lists, invoices, newspaper and magazine clippings, certificates, awards, and invitations. The bulk of the collection and most of the professional papers date from about 1950 to 1965 and relate to various garden design projects by Wheeler, many of them located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Of particular note are documents for Wheeler's public design work including the White House grounds, Washington National Cathedral, U. S. National Arboretum, President John F. Kennedy's gravesite in Arlington National Cemetery, and the British and Cambodian Embassies in Washington, D.C. Noteworthy correspondents include President and Mrs. John F. Kennedy, Ladybird Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Mellon, and Margaret Truman.

There are also over 3,000 35mm slides dating from the 1950s and 1960s that document Wheeler's personal travels to Europe, Africa, South America, the Caribbean, Canada, and the American West.
Biographical/Historical note:
Perry Hunt Wheeler (1913-1989), a Georgia native, began his higher education at Emory University, going on to graduate from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1937. Immediately afterward Wheeler enrolled in Harvard University from which he earned a graduate degree in Landscape Architecture in 1938. After graduation, Wheeler collaborated on garden projects in Atlanta, Georgia with fellow landscape architect Helen Hawkins Clarke. During World War II, Wheeler moved to Washington, D.C. to serve under the Office of Civilian Defense and the Office of Strategic Services Camouflage Division. Following the war, Wheeler worked at Garden House a Georgetown shop where he advised homeowners on tasteful garden design, accessories, and furnishings. By 1948 Wheeler had established a landscape architecture practice in Washington, D.C. His practice grew via word of mouth through Washington's social circles and through a shared office with landscape architect Rose Ishbel Greely, and later with architect Gertrude Sawyer.

In 1947, he formed a 'bachelor household' in Georgetown with James Snitzler. Later, at the invitation of Rachel Lambert "Bunny" Mellon, he and Snitzler created a second home outside of Washington called "Spring Hill" on property owned by Mellon. Shortly after Snitzler's death in 1968, Wheeler moved permanently to Middleburg, Virginia and continued to travel, lecture, and consult with clients. Wheeler semi-retired in 1981 to 'Budfield,' a property in Rectortown, Virginia where he passed away in 1989, leaving his estate to his partner, James M. Stengle.

Wheeler is best known for his work on private gardens in Washington's Georgetown neighborhood. He frequently employed the use of intricate brickwork, low-maintenance planting, and simple water features in creating his charming and functional designs. His most noteworthy commissions outside the private realm include collaboration with Bunny Mellon on the White House Rose Garden, designing a Garden Club of America-commissioned gazebo and its surroundings for the U.S. National Arboretum, and plantings for the National Cathedral and President John F. Kennedy's gravesite in Arlington National Cemetery.
