Place:
Hayward Garden (Westminster West, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Windham -- Westminster West
Scope and Contents:
Hayward Garden includes 63 digital images and a folder that includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and additional images including a pamphlet about a musical program created for and perfomed in the garden in 2014 as a the Yellow Barn summer program.
General:
The owners describe their one and one-half acre ornamental garden as a new garden in an old place, with its 200 year-old colonial farmhouse and attached barn, low stone walls, and old farm building foundations that have been repurposed as distinctive garden rooms within surrounding meadows and woods. They purchased the property in 1983 and spent about one year clearing the land of scrap metal and other debris, brambles and weed trees, a rotting barn, dead trees, and an old Nash Metropolitan automobile. The garden style is English, with a rectilinear format from south to north softened by lush growth in season and more evident in the long Vermont winter. The design began by drawing a straight line from the front door of the house to a 75-year-old apple tree. There is a crab apple orchard along that main axis that can be seen from the house. Brick and pea stone gravel walks, 90-foot long mixed borders, and an herb garden laid out in formal parterres are either parallel or perpendicular to the central axis of the garden. The 14 garden rooms are delineated by clipped hedges of varying heights, many of yew but also other plant materials for variation. There are four places to sit within the garden: a gazebo at the far end reached through a tunnel of pleached copper beech, an outdoor dining room on pavers under tall trees, a bench slightly above and overlooking their spring garden, and another bench next to a shed near the herb garden.
Creating a garden in harmony with the rural location was important to the owners, who subsequently purchased 19 adjacent acres and preserved the meadows and woods with the Vermont Land Trust. To instill harmony in the diverse garden rooms the owners adhere to three themes: hedges for structure, black locust posts and terra cotta containers for materials, and burgundy and other reds for the color that recurs throughout the garden rooms. Since the entire garden is unified it is possible to add variations without muddling the design. Honoring the long gone dairy farms they have turned the foundations of a milking parlor into a garden room that has low, drought tolerant plants growing among the stone flooring and three rusted milk cans. The cracked cement foundation of a former silo was turned into a pond with a fountain built into a stone wellhead and a statue of Buddha on the shore.
Gordon Hayward has written many articles for Horticulture, Taunton's Fine Gardening, and regional magazines using his own garden to teach design aesthetics and their practical application. Topics include the effective placement of planted and unplanted containers and other garden ornaments, how to build a small fountain, the importance of proportions to design, how to set vertical posts, and tips on outdoor seating and dining rooms. Good design is illustrated by reshaping lawns to complement planted borders or trees, through consistent choices of decorative materials, through applying the principles of theme and variation when choosing what to put in the garden, and through planning for the winter garden with berries and crab apples for birds and good "bones" that become evident in winter.
Persons associated with the garden include: Gordon Hayward (owner, garden designer, and gardener, 1983- ), Mary Hayward (owner, garden designer, and gardener, 1983- ), Ephraim and Lydia Johnson Ranney, and their descendants in the Buxton and Reed families (former owners, circa 1790-1983); Helen O'Donnell (gardener, 2008-2015).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, historical images and real estate records.
General:
A few evergreen trees are all that presently remain of the Homewood garden, which dated back to the 1920's. The original 223 acres of the property were purchased by Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. in 1946. A pool was added to the propery in the 1950's, with shrubs and flower beds at its edges. A split rail fence and a garden gate defined the front of the garden which featured and arbor, and roses, boxwood, peonies, and spring bulbs. Beyond the garden, a children's play area was situated next to a small orchard. In it's prime, the property was a working dairy farm and also had conformation show horses; the large stable no longer exists but the dairy barn remains standing. In 2000 the Pettibone family sold the property and the unattended home subsequently burned down in 2010.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Aldrich Dudley (former owners, 1930's-1946?); the Wyatt family (1930s-1946?), Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. (former owners, 1946-ca. 1989?); Mr. John Pettibone Jr. (former owner, 1989-2000); and Mr. Bill Budd (grounds keeper, 1946-).

Place:
Atwater Garden (Little Compton, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Little Compton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and site plans.
General:
The property is composed of three lots measuring approximately 5 acres each, all bounded by stone walls, and is a combination of woodlands, marshland, areas for cultivation and seaside views. The land was part of a dairy farm until 1945, and the house (built in 1963-64 at the end of a long driveway) was the farm's old cart track. In 1964, 1969, and 1970 Lloyd Lawton designed rock gardens on the west and southeastern sides of the house. The gardens contain several rare plants as well as collections of rhododendrons, azaleas, Japanese maples, hellebores, grasses, groundcovers, ferns, epimediums, and rock garden plants. North of the house, an old stone wall is lined with a perennial border that blooms from early spring to late fall. Beyond the wall stands a row of English Holly (Molly Stevens) which borders an extensive vegetable garden, followed by American Hollies. On the west side of the house just past the rock garden, a Katsura tree shades a terrace next to a bed of mixed plantings including trees, shrubs, grasses, groundcovers, perennials, and bulbs. Further west, a path splits two naturalistic beds featuring native white viscosum azaleas under planted with bulbs and groundcovers. On the east side of the house a purple Beech towers over rhododendron beds including rhododendron "Kozan." Also on the east side is an informal row of tightly pruned Leyland Cypress. Two beds to the southeast and southwest of the front of the house feature mixed plantings in graduated heights composed of trees, shrubs, perennials, and groundcovers.
Persons associated with the garden include Lloyd Lawton (landscape designer, 1964, 1969, 1970).

Place:
Brook View Farm (Devon, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Chester County -- Devon
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, narrative description of the garden and its history, and an abbreviated garden plan.
Former Titles:
Kemble/Wood Garden and Brookside Garden.
General:
The ca. 1758 stone house was part of a dairy farm during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Former owners, Francis and Emily Kemble, hired Thomas Sears to terrace the hillside with stone walls and steps. English boxwood marked the corners, and narrow grass paths defined rectangular beds lined with hosta and centered with matching clusters of peonies and phlox. Sears planted masses of "Congo" lilacs and an American elm in order to provide a canopy for the garden. A small orchard of apple and pear trees were planted to screen the house from the road. A meadow area was set aside for a large vegetable garden, cold frames and a hot frame. Sears converted several out-buildings into garden "follies" for tea parties and relaxing. The foundation of one of the buildings became a rose garden with a stepping stone path down the center. When the present owners purchased the property, invasive weeds overtook the garden beds and vegetable garden. Most of the boxwood succumbed to disease and many of the fruit trees were dead. The owners wished to adapt an old high maintenance garden to contemporary interests and a reasonable budget. Azaleas became the foundation of the woody plantings. They revived the vegetable garden and offered plots to friends. The garden is currently used as a laboratory to learn more about growing and combining various plants while overcoming problems, such as deer.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: William Wood (former owner, 1700s); Emily and Francis Kemble (former owners, 1920-1975); Thomas Sears (landscape architect, 1927-1930); and Brognard Okie (architect, 1928-1929).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Emmons Farm's Gardens (Fayette, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Fulton County -- Fayette
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a garden plan, a copy of an article about the garden, and additional information about the garden's history and design.
General:
This three-acre garden, situated on a 253-acre dairy farm in northwestern Ohio, was begun in the late 1980s. What started as a small rose garden to enhance the owner's view from the barn whilst milking the Holstein herd has evolved into a collection of over 900 rose plants on the farm grounds. Special emphasis is placed on species dating from before 1867, hybrid teas, and miniature roses. The rose gardens are complemented by terraced gardens of annuals in patriotic colors and can be seen, along with a fruit tree allée and vegetable garden, from a raised viewing terrace and pergola. Adjacent to this terrace is a water garden, complete with waterfall and dozens of goldfish. Additional garden features include a greenhouse and raised flower beds in geometrically designed gardens containing annuals and perennials. This is truly a fascinating Ohio farm garden and a tribute to its owners/designers' imagination, dedication, and American ingenuity.

United States of America -- New Jersey -- Mercer County -- Lambertville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, plant lists, and photocopies of articles .
General:
An historic New Jersey dairy farm was divided into two ten acre properties about 40 years ago, with one containing the house and this one containing two massive stone barns.The barns were converted into livable structures by subsequent owners, with the completion of the house and installation of the gardens surrounding it commencing in 1998. Now there are five distinct garden areas: the driveway and front circle planted with low maintenance shrubs; the front courtyard which is protected by an extensive cedar trellis style fence and features shade plants in chartreuse, dark green and maroon; the back patio along the barn wall with the dining area, fire pit, a dogwood tree espaliered against the barn wall, and a stone ruin that is a wind block; the swimming pool surrounded by ornamental grasses that grow tall enough to give privacy; and a natural pond with the native plants augmented with grasses and yellow water iris.
Among the challenges faced by landscape designers Chris Pugliese and Jonathan Alderson were an extensive native deer population, compacted clay soil from the days when livestock lived in the barn, the massive scale of the converted barns, and converting an entirely exposed property into gardens and outdoor entertaining rooms. Their solutions included planting trees near the house for shade including fast growing river birches, honey locust and magnolias, designing the fence and ruin to define garden rooms and offer protection from the deer and other elements, planting ornamental grasses and other species that deer do not eat, and sinking the garden areas down steps, again to keep out the deer. The compacted soil was removed and replaced with ten inches of mushroom compost.
The massive two-story stone dairy barn has been balanced with large-scale containers including an oil jar and by allowing ivy planted along the side path to climb and soften the façade. The front courtyard and back patio floor are dry laid blue stone that allows small plants to grow between the stones. The height of the trellis fence is staggered so it does not appear to cut the house off from the rest of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Bob Waligunda (former owner, 1970-1994); Robert Dunham (former owner, 1994-1996); Mr. and Mrs. Keith Coleman (former owners, 1996-1998); Maximillian Hayden (architect, 1996); Chris Pugliese, ASLA (landscape architect, 1998-2000); Jonathan Alderson, ASLA (landscape architect, 1998-2000); Bill Dear (landscape designer, 2009- ).

General:
Located on less than an acre, Frances Dowd Gardens was originally an 80 acre dairy farm that was subdivided by Archibald Love into Loveland Subdivision in 1922. This property's home was built in 1941, and an additional 36 feet x 177 feet of land was purchased to square off the back yard in 1975. At that time, the owners began in earnest to create the garden. Vines, rogue trees and shrubs were removed. Healthy trees were trimmed and new trees were planted. Gardens were designed, dug and planted along with new fencing and trellises added. A vegetable garden was also started in a fenced off area.
In 2000 a request was made from an ad agency representing Coke to film a commercial in their garden. The fee for the use of their property was donated to the Lauritzen Garden at Omaha's Botanical Center.
From 1971-2008 many additions were added to the home and grounds.The grounds improvements include: a screened porch and gazebo, two level brick and stone patio, trellis covered garden seat and playhouse.
An overview of the plantings include: several Hydrangea, Roses, Lilacs, Yew's, Box wood and Holly shrub varieties. Sun and shade perennials such as: Astilbe, Columbine, Aster, Geranium, Hibiscus, Peony, Sedum and many Hosta varieties. Trees include: Maple, redbud, dogwood, Hawthorn, American beech, white ash, White pine, Red oak, Chinese elm and different viburnum.
Persons associated with the property include: William and Charlotte Montgomery (former owners, 1941-1958), Robert and Jane Finnman (former owners, 1958-1964), Mary and William Grady (former owners, 1964-1966), Jeffery Mink (landscape architect), Matthew Dowd (builder and designer).
