Dover -- The Samuel and Beverly Ryburn Wildflower Garden

Collection Creator:
Engle, Corliss Knapp  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
The Samuel and Beverly Ryburn Wildflower Garden (Dover, Massachusetts).
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Dover
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and a copy of an article.
General:
A nearly 40-foot wide, 10 to 18 foot high rock ledge on an abandoned 12-acre farm was developed into a wildflower garden during the 1980s after the owners discovered how to make use of this natural feature, aided by their study of Japanese garden design. An initial attempt to smooth over the rock's contours with hundreds of wheelbarrows of soil dug and brought uphill from their woods was unattractive, and the soil was removed. By basing their design on a Japanese rock garden format they used the natural depressions in the rock for pocket gardens. Four larger depressions were deepened and concreted to make pools that were connected to a submerged recycling water pump. Dwarf varieties of cypress, spruce, weeping larch, Japanese cut leaf maple, and rhododendron were planted in other pockets deep enough for small trees and shrubs. Creeping juniper, partridgeberry, pipsissewa, wintergreen, and native small shrubs grew to form mats and screens. Native wildflowers took root wherever there was soil or cracks in the rock. Twenty species and varieties of ferns adapted to shady spots. The rock garden was a feature of the larger, more conventional gardens and terraces on the property. The Japanese design theme was repeated in an arched wooden bridge, wood-slab benches, a stone lantern, and a bronze Japanese crane. Other hardscape elements were retrieved from the woods and repurposed: flat stones from an old wall were used as stepping stones and lichen-covered boulders were placed to counterbalance the heft of the wildflower rock garden.

Scope and Contents:
Copies of original photographs are included in file.

The folder includes a work sheet, garden plans, photo copies of articles, nursery invoices, correspondence, and booklet on Craig family and Candoro Marble Company.
General:
Charles I. Barber, of Barber and McMurry, designed the house in 1926 for Mr. John J. Craig, III., one of the owners of Candoro Marble Company. Landscape architect Charles F. Lester was hired to mold the surrounding eighty acres to complement the strongly Italianate house. Lester laid out green terraces on a slope between the north front of the house and a man-made lake below and created a large formal garden to the west. Developers purchased the property in 1971, with the intent of demolishing the residence and constructing a subdivision. The house and several acres, however, were preserved with the remaining being developed into the Westlands and Westchase condominiums and Craigland subdivision. The current owners of the existing property have restored and renovated the gardens and remaining two acres of property, which combine formal and naturalistic elements. In 1998, a wall was added to define the north side of the formal garden, which features ponds and stone benches original to the property, concrete sculptures, boxwoods, and espaliered "Smoothee" apple trees. To the east of the house is a large lawn surrounded by woods of mature dogwoods, maples, tulip poplars, magnolias, hackberries, walnuts, oaks, and hemlocks. A cottage garden is kept behind the garage. The owners planted an herb garden in large clay pots just outside the kitchen door.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owners, 1926-1945); Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owner, 1945-1971); Mrs. and Mrs. Calvin Walter (former owners, 1971-1992); Charles F. Lester (landscape architect, 1926); Charles I. Barber (architect, 1926); Albert Milani (marble sculpture, 1926); Mary Spengler (garden designer, 1992-1998); Rosemary Verey (garden consultant, 1995); and Peter Thevenot (plant supplier, 1998).

Lookout Mountain -- Jane's Garden

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Jane's Garden (Lookout Mountain, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Hamilton County -- Lookout Mountain
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, plant lists, photocopies of articles, and other information about Jane Davenport Jansen.
General:
Jane's Garden is named for the late Jane Davenport Jansen (1940-2000), a native of Lookout Mountain, Tennessee and the founder of Quarryhill Botanical Garden in Glen Ellen, California, a site that preserves and conserves rare plants collected in Asia as well as native flora. The 200 by 50 foot corner lot in her hometown that had been an eyesore with an abandoned house is now a public strolling garden with a concrete walking path, water fountain, raised garden beds with rockwork, a wall for sitting, and a shady gazebo. Garden designer Jimmy Stewart was employed to create the garden, working with members of Lookout Mountain Beautification. The plants in Jane's Garden include specimen Japanese maple trees and Chinese fringe trees, flowering and woody shrubs including varieties of hydrangea, cypress, juniper, rhododendron and spiraea, and perennial flowers and ground covers. The garden was planned to be interesting to visit year-round, with plants that are appropriate to the climate, disease and insect resistant, and relatively easy to maintain.
Jane Davenport Jansen was an honorary member of the Garden Club of America and received many honors and awards for her botanical and horticultural work. Jansen was a sponsor of 15 seed collecting expeditions to Asia that brought back many species of temperate zone trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials that can be found in arboreta and botanical gardens in the United States as well as in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and at the Howick Arboretum in England.
Persons associated with the garden include Geraldine and Norman Morrow (former owners, 1945-1999); Rodolph and Elizabeth Davenport (former owners, 1999-2003); Town of Lookout Mountain, Tennessee (owner since July 2003); Jimmy Stewart (garden designer, since 1999); Susan Bradley (Lookout Mountain Beautification, 1999-2009); May Mitchell (Lookout Mountain Beautification, 2010-present)
