Ca Sole (Cincinnati, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Hamilton County -- Cincinnati
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and write-ups of the property's history.
General:
Ca Sole, with its Italian farmhouse style and red tile roof, hints that the garden was meant to be Italianate as well. The house is on a hillside overlooking the Ohio River. In 1930 the terraced garden of the 3.5 acre property was surrounded by a rustic brick wall with arched cut-outs that provided views of the Ohio River and created a large garden room. Most of the wall has been removed, with parts still standing as decorative features. The current garden has pruned hedges with landscape roses, container planting in classical urns, and vines covering some walls.
The glass lantern slides were painted by Gladys Pratt, who has other work at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
Persons, and firms associated with the garden and property include: William Horace Schmidlapp (former owner beginning in 1930); Lela Hinkley (former owner); Charles Scripps (former owner until 1993); Nicholas Ragland (former owner 1993-2006); Grosvenor Atterbury (architect); Umberto Innocenti (landscape architect); Vitale & Geiffert (landscape architects); and Gladys L. Pratt (colorist for lantern slides).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, update sheet, and copy of Garden Club of America Annual Meeting, 1954, article.
General:
Established in 1935, this garden owned by landscape architect Henry Fletcher Kenney. Features included an espaliered Magnolia grandiflora, cedars near the entrance, and a stream bank across the road. An enclosed herb and rose garden was located on the first terrace. A long path leads past the terraced pool to the woods. Kenney utilized ground covers, mulches, and deeply incorporated humus in order to conserve water. "Water for the pool area was rain-trapped in successive basins along the dry hillside cut and each downspout has its Chinese bathtub to catch every drop." Deep unheated pits were used for tender potted material. Below the parking area lie the vegetable and cutting gardens. (The Garden Club of America Annual Meeting, 1954, pp. 30-32). The garden was reported vanished in 1987.
Persons associated with the property include: Henry Fletcher Kenney (landscape architect, 1954).
