Old Farm (Wenham, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Essex -- Wenham
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, historical images, and biographical and other information.
General:
Old Farm has a sunken and enclosed garden designed in 1912-1913 by Ellen Biddle Shipman in the Colonial Revival style to complement the 17th century farm house, described as a cloistered space within the more than one hundred acres of fields and woodlands that comprise this property. The garden was one of Shipman's earliest documented professional commissions, a rectangular plot sub-divided by stone and gravel walks into smaller rectangular beds surrounded by a low dry stone wall. At the far end there is a stone apse or excedrae with room for outdoor seating and a lily pond, now dry. Shipman's original stone terrace directly behind the house, stone walkway down the middle of the garden, and stone steps that lead up to the excedrae have grown over with grass and the American elm trees that shaded the enclosed garden have been replaced by other mature trees. The flower beds have been retained in their original shapes and siting, and have three distinct seasons of blooms: first daffodils, followed by irises, phlox and peonies, then fall asters.
The original 17th century house had rooms on either side of the chimney in front with a lean-to rear section. In the late 19th century the rear section was raised to two stories, and in the early 20th century the house was restored by preservation specialist Joseph Everett Chandler. Ellen Biddle Shipman added trellises for vines and a garden in front of the house planted with boxwood, roses and oleander.
Persons associated with the garden include: John H. B. Kent (former owner, 1836-1910); Benjamin F. and Adelaine L. Peach (former owners, 1899-1910); Alanson L. and Frances Pomeroy Daniels (former owners, 1910-1933); John S. and Mary B. Amory (former owners, 1933-1961); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, 1912-1913); Joseph Everett Chandler (preservation architect, 1915); Lawrence Tennis (gardener, 2004- ); Beverly Benson Seamans (1928-2012) (sculptor).

Grahampton related holdings consist of 2 folders, 6 photoprints and 32 digital images (1920-2017). The folders includes worksheets and copies of articles.
General:
Grahampton was purchased in 1916 and finished in 1917, the brick estate served as the retirement home of Pittsburgh's Henry William (Harry) Croft and his wife, Augusta Graham Croft, for whom Grahampton is named. The Crofts purchased five farms to create the property. The main house was completed in 1917 and sat on 287 acres of land. James L. Greenleaf designed the original garden, adjacent to the main house. The garden was originally the work of James Greenleaf, who worked closely with Mrs. Croft. Pastures, orchards, and marshy grounds were transformed into tended walks, stonework, and flowers. Greenleaf and Mrs. Croft created pools; boxwood-lined paths; flower beds of delphiniums, foxgloves, and irises; and steps leading up to a statue of Diana with her leaping dog. The Crofts later brought in Ellen Biddle Shipman to design another garden for the estate. Augusta Croft was a member of the Greenwich Garden Club. Her gardens were on tour at The Garden Club of America 1927 Annual Meeting in Rye, N.Y., and are described in the GCA Archives. Grahampton has since lost many of its designed spaces following its subdivisions over the years. The original house currently sits on a little more than five acres of land and the gardens surrounding it are primarily foundation plantings of Buxus, trees, flowering shrubs, and groundcovers. The 1920s oval driveway has been replaced with this rectangular portion of the driveway, lined with Amelanchier Canadensis is used as a parking area for guests. Pink rhododendron and Cornus kousa are visible just off the drive. There is a redesigned gate and set of stairs that leads to the lower backyard. The backyard features a large, rectangular pool near the back entrance to the house and a lawn that ends with a hedge of arborvitae to screen from the neighbor's property. Predominant plants on the property are Pachysandra, Rhododendron, Azalea, Peony, Boxwood, Cornus, Hemlock, Cedar, Pine and Japanese maple.
Persons and firms associated with the garden and property include: Henry and Augusta Croft (former owners); Johnson and Abbot (architect, 1916); William H. Nye (contractor, 1916); James L. Greenleaf (Landscape architect, 1916-); Ellen Biddle Shipman (Landscape architects, 1917-)

Kully Garden (San Marino, California)
United States of America -- California -- Los Angeles County -- San Marino
Scope and Contents:
Holdings consist of a garden file with a description of the garden, photocopies of articles, and other information (15 35mm slides).
General:
The garden and house were first designed in 1939 on a flat ¾ acre property in San Marino, a small suburb of Los Angeles 30 miles from the coast. The area has a Mediterranean-like climate that receives approximately 14 inches of rain per year, in the winter only. Original to the front is a large lawn with Viburnum suspensum hedges on each side. Past the driveway, original concrete blocks surround the courtyard, and continue around both sides of the house and the perimeter of the rear garden. The original rear garden was mostly lawn, edged by a narrow path, hedges of Viburnum suspensum and an assortment of trees, including three large Quercus agrifolia, the coast live oak most common to this area. Still in existence from 1939 are the mature Plantanus ramosa (California sycamore) at the courtyard entrance. The second owners, in the 1960s turned part of the back lawn into lathe houses for their camellia collection, replacing some of the Viburnum suspensum with camellia specimens, which still exist.
After the original owners sold the property in 1960, it was owned by a second family for nearly a decade before being sold a third time to the present owners in 1969. Since the present owners bought the property, the gardens have undergone multiple revisions by four landscape architects, including the notable Robert Fletcher, who worked intermittently with the owners between 1985-1995. In every revision to this estate's gardens, every effort was made to preserve and incorporate the very mature trees and shrubs which provide form, color and shade. While the estate has plantings in the front lawn and flanking the east and west sides of their home, the most impressive landscape features are in the rear of the property, particularly the borders surrounding the central lawn and the plantings along the 'Bouquet Canyon' stone path to the pool. In the 1970s landscape architect Chuck Hoffman designed the rear garden, emphasizing the desire for informal and naturalistic garden spaces for outdoor living around the French colonial-style house. He designed the swimming pool, two terraces, and created curving borders around the lawn, and added four Liriodendron tulipifera (tulip trees). In the 1980s landscape designer Robert Fletcher built on Hoffman's footprint, adding more distinctive plant material, installing six bullet-shaped Syzygium paniculatum to anchor the borders, and turned one terrace into a small stone patio after an addition to the house. Nurseryman Frank Burkard added Phormium tenax (New Zealand flax), roses and other shrubs in the 1990s.
Garden features at the entrance of the courtyard include an espalier Magnolia grandiflora, a four-part sculpture, "Kyoto Protocol" by Ray Meeker, which is surrounded by Ophiopogon (mondo grass), with an overhanging Olea europaea (olive) and Plantanus racemosa and a large collection of potted succulent varieties on the terrace selected by landscape architect John Caitlin in 1970 for their heat tolerance.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. M.D. Schatzman (former owners, 1939-1960); Carla Barker Hind and William O. Hind (former owners; 1960-1969); H. Roy Kelley (architect, 1939); John Caitlin (landscape architect, 1970); Charles Hoffman (landscape architect, 1972); Robert M. Fletcher (landscape architect and photographer, 1985-1995); Frank Burkard (nurseryman, 1990); Mark Bartos (landscape architect, 1999); Peter Lodato (sculptor, 1991); Ray Meeker (ceramic artist, 2005).
