Place:
Camellia Hedges (Atherton, California)
United States of America -- California -- San Mateo County -- Atherton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and copies of articles.
General:
Owned by two successive generations, Camellia Hedges is a garden for all seasons. Designed in the tradition of an English plantsman's garden, it incorporates formal elements into a rich tapestry of plant collections including camellias, cherries, magnolias, spring bulbs, roses, hydrangeas, clematis, rhododendrons, and numerous perennials. The garden includes what is considered to be the largest private garden collection of noteworthy camellias in northern California, if not on the west coast.
Though the garden was already established in 1960 when purchased by the first generation of the family that presently owns it, it underwent an extensive redesign in 1995 to transform it into the English style that presently presides.
The home was originally built in 1938 and the original garden included extensive plantings of camellias as well as hydrangeas, boxwood hedges and oaks, including a 400 year-old coastal live oak under which sat a Japanese mound featuring a waterfall, pool and bridge. With the loss of the live oak in 1995, the back garden was redesigned, preserving the perimeter hedges and a selection of the established trees while incorporating the English garden design, including a kitchen and cutting garden featuring raised beds and thuja hedges, a fountain terrace, a Chinese garden room, and an expansive serpentine brick border. The redesign of the front garden maintained by many of the original plantings and incorporated camellia, azalea, hydrangea and boxwood transferred from the original back garden. The front garden includes a woodland garden room, as well as a formal garden room preserved from the original landscape design, featuring large flower beds framed by boxwood hedges.
Persons associated with the garden include: the Savage family (former owners, 1938-date unknown), the McLean family (former owners); Benjamin Swig (former owner, date unknown-1960); Kathryn L. and Cullen W. Coates (former owners, 1960-1984); Leo Sharp (architect, 1938); Sam Spinelli (gardener, 1960-1965); Thomas Church (landscape architect, ca. 1970-1980); Chris Christopherson (architect, 1984); Jack Stafford (landscape architect, 1984); Myra Brocchini (architect, 1996); Jonathan Plant (landscape architect, horticulturist, 1996); and Ben Gill (gardener, 1965- ).

Place:
The Wave Garden (Richmond, California).
United States of America -- California -- Contra Costa -- Richmond
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and the features plan for the garden.
General:
Located on approximately 1/3 of an acre, The Wave Garden overlooks San Pablo Bay, part of the San Francisco Bay, in Richmond, California. The owners began construction of the garden in 2007 on a piece of land that was originally a vacant city lot. The Wave Garden is unique because while it is a private garden, it also has a section open to the public which includes an ADA compliant middle pathway. The garden was designed as a work of art, inspired by the work of sculptor Douglas Purdy which is featured in the garden. The winding pathways, platforms, and stairs were created out of textured concrete by artist Victor Armador. The curves of the garden reference the waves of nearby San Pablo Bay. The fencing and ironwork in the garden was designed by blacksmith, Robert Sharpe.
Many of the plants within The Wave Garden are water-efficient. They were selected to be sustainable in the California climate, which has frequent droughts, and also for their contrasting shapes, colors, and heights. Three types of plants in The Wave Garden are California native plants, but most originate from Australia, South Africa, Mexico, or Chile.
Persons associated with the garden include: Victor Amador (concrete artist, 2005- ); Robert Sharpe (blacksmith, 2007-2008); Kellee Adams (gardener, 2007-2008).

Place:
United States of America -- California -- San Mateo County -- Hillsborough
Susan Locklin Grau Garden (Hillsborough, California)
Scope and Contents:
36 digital images (2016) and 1 file folder.
General:
The nearly one-acre property had walls and paths built of cobblestones and bricks salvaged from San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire, a main house and guest cottage built in the 1950's, and mature shrubs and trees. This property originally was part of a larger family estate and is on a hillside overlooking San Mateo creek. After sitting empty for about six years the property was purchased in 2012, and the trees and shrubs were pruned. Those included California live oak, deciduous magnolia, ash, plum, persimmon, camellias, rhododendron and azaleas. Next beds along the concentric gravel paths were planted with different trees, shrubs and perennials. There are banks of roses and climbing roses on a series of arches that form a tunnel. The paths wind down the hillside to a lower garden room known as Wonderland where hydrangeas surround a bench and birdbath. Bergenia is used as an edging along the deck and as understory in other garden rooms. Tree and vining wisteria, Japanese maples, spring bulbs, foxgloves, boxwood, ferns, ligularia, weeping birches, and pittosporum are some of the plant selections that have been woven together to form a shimmering garden.

Persons associated with the garden include: the Howe family (former owners, early 1900's-1951); Virginia Howe (former owner, 1951-2007); William C. McGowan, Jr. (garden designer and horticulturist, 2013- ); Robert Weatherill (arborist, 2013- ); Mike Warren (construction and lighting, 2013- ); Ruben Cardenas and Ruben Cardenas, Jr. (gardeners, 2013- ); Carmen Gonzalez (gardener, 2013- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
A 60 by 100 foot urban lot with an 1880's Victorian house has been the site of a unique artist's garden for 36 years. The garden areas in front of and behind the house are densely planted and packed with sculptures, salvage and donated articles, a life's work described by the owner as "Planting Sculpture, Sculpting Plants". Important symbols are repeated, including a wooden gate shaped like a hand and a hand-shaped koi pond with plants growing between the fingers, mythological figures that pertain to gardens, Flora and Demeter, and sculpted poles that suggest bamboo, painted in colors and inscribed with lettering to complement nearby plants. There is a poultry pavilion made from salvage for the 20 bantam chickens that freely range in the garden during the day. The dense planting succeeds because the soil was dug deeply and is amended with organic materials, from the chickens and the other compost, kept at the end of a path of discarded gravestones. The garden is tended by hand and vigorous plants are pruned back so others can thrive. The plant selection is broad and diverse, including sub-tropical varieties and since the garden is watered by hand it may evolve to feature more drought tolerant selections.
Some of the inorganic items the owner has worked into her garden design include bowling balls set in pots or piled up as mulch, reflective obelisks set among silvery leaves, old flatware planted in the soil, ceramic bulbs also planted in pots, necklaces of sculpted and carved spheres draped in trees and ceramic eggs draped on the chicken coop, and industrial cast-offs such as a giant spring used as a plant support. Artworks contributed by others include a statuesque figure known as "The Big Beauty" set among bamboo and giant horsetail and cut-out steel figures and heads suspended from trees or poles.

General:
The house, built by Alfred Poett, was later owned by the Burlingame Country Club after being extensively remodeled by A. Page Brown. It closely resembled a Tudor-style "cottage." The estate, when owned by George A. Pope, included a 27-acre garden and an Arthur Brown-designed dance pavilion, built for his daughter. The house burned down in 1946 after the Pope's death and is now a subdivision. Between 1993 and 1998, the entrance gates were restored. Spruce and eucalyptus trees planted on either side of the road may have existed from the original estate.
Mrs. Pope also had a summer home in Lake Tahoe, CA. See CA073.

Thompson Garden (Manchester, California)
United States of America -- California -- Mendocino County -- Manchester
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a property outline and aerial photograph overview, a description and worksheet, and copies of magazine and newspaper articles. The garden is noted for its use of heathers, Monterey cypress, driftwood, and "found" materials.
General:
"The garden is distinguished from most gardens primarily by two features: an extensive planting of heathers and the use of driftwood and other 'found' material in the construction of garden furniture and structures."
"There are three separate heather gardens consisting of more than 250 cultivars. Heathers were introduced into the garden in 1986 as an uninformed experiment. They proved to be so well suited to existing growing conditions, so readily propagated and so easy to maintain that we couldn't stop planting them until we ran out of space. It's just as well that we have only two and one-half acres."
"In addition to the gates, trellises, benches, etc., there is a Victorian style tree house and a dragon. The tree house is built in one of the largest Monterey cypresses in the United States. A weeping spruce grew to form three humps which suggested the body of a dragon; all that was needed was a head and tail which were carved from redwood. Recently a baby dragon, hatching from an egg, was added."
"The garden at one time was the barn lot of one of the earliest settlers in this area; the old house (ca. 1854) still stands on an adjoining lot. The horse barn (we lived in it while building our house) and the Monterey cypress trees planted long ago as a windbreak are distinctive features of the garden. The cypress trees protect the garden from the winds off the Pacific coast one-half mile to the northwest."
"The design of the garden and all the structures (except the barn) are the product of our own imagination (whimsey?) and effort. This may be only too obvious to the discerning eye of a professional garden designer. However, the process and the results are more meaningful and gratifying for having done it without professional help."
Persons associated with the property include: Samuel Hunter (ca. 1850), Harold Hunter (to 1966), and George Paddleford (1966-1972).

General:
"A north garden-with brick wall (1889) on north end. Includes a collection of topiary and bonsai. Whimsical in mood with a "tooth fairy house" with an arch in boxwood hedge and small path leading to it. Mosaic design of squirrels over potting bench. On north end of house (southern end of garden - a mural extending the garden includes San Francisco views. She grows lily of the valley, cymbidiums in the ground, clivia, a lemon, orange and noisette roses."
"A handsome brick wall, put up in 1889, held back one small portion of one of San Francisco's many hills to make the garden possible. Facing north, the garden has evolved for us over the last 42 years."
"The seasonal changes are always amazing. The beauty begins in early spring with camellias, then the wisteria begins (over the tooth-fairy house), plus the rhododendron and roses. When they are done the jasmine begins, behind the fountain. The agapanthus makes a prolific border on both sides of the fountain and the roses come back for a second time."
"Only the wall of the house was a problem. We could never grow anything on it as the sun never quite reached it, but now with the final touch of our mural as a definated extention of our garden, we are complete."

General:
Looking toward the eastern slope of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Filoli lies about 25 miles south of San Francisco in the Crystal Springs Watershed. The mansion and gardens were built between 1916 and 1919 for William Bowers Bourn, II, and his wife Agnes Moody Bourn, who founded the Hillsborough Garden Club in 1922. Willis Polk was architect for the mansion, Arthur Brown, Jr., undertook additional architectural designs, and Bruce Porter designed the gardens. Isabella Worn supervised the gardens' planting and oversaw maintenance of the gardens for many years thereafter. Encompassing more than 15 acres, the gardens incorporate a formal design with imaginative plantings and many unique specimens from outside the United States. Following the Bourns' deaths in 1936, the property was acquired by William P. and Lurline Matson Roth. In 1975 Mrs. Roth deeded the estate to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include William Bowers Bourn, II, and Agnes Moody Bourn (former owners, 1916-1936); William P. and Lurline Matson Roth (former owners, 1937-1975); Bruce Porter (landscape architect, 1916-1919); Isabella Worn (horticulturist, 1916-1950); Willis Polk (architect, 1916-1919); and Arthur Brown, Jr. (architect).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes two worksheets, copies of the garden plan, a brief narrative history of the property, and a bibliography relating to the history of the area in which the site is located. The garden is noted for its integration of country and formal design elements into the spectacular natural setting of a redwood forest.
General:
This site on the peninsula south of San Francisco was originally developed in the late 1920s. John McLaren, creator of Golden Gate Park, is said to have advised the owners at that time to preserve the redwoods on the property; fortunately his advice was heeded. In 1937 the property changed hands and acquired its present name. The new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Phleger, maintained it largely as originally planned, but commissioned additional work by Thomas Church. They also purchased additional land, bringing the estate's total size to 1,400 acres. Upon the death of Mrs. Phleger in 1991 the estate was purchased by the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), except for 50 acres and two houses which remain under private ownership.
The garden documented here is essentially a country garden, but with an air of elegance. Spring and summer borders are located on different levels and there are a separate rose garden, an apple orchard, and a pristine redwood grove. The garden and its beautiful setting in the coast range fully complement one another.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Eastman (former owners, 1928-1937); Mr. and Mrs. Herman Phleger (former owners, 1937-1991); Gardner A. Dailey (architect, 1928); Bruce Porter (landscape designer, 1928); John McLaren (landscape architect and park administrator, 1928); Thomas Church (landscape architect); Thomas Daggett (groundskeeper and horticulturist); and Dianne Schilling (photographer).

General:
Bruce Porter in 1905 designed New Place. William Crocker's 700 acre estate in Hillsborough was one of the earliest Italianate Gardens in California. A formal garden surrounded the house, designed by Lewis P. Hobart and there were park lands planted with pine and oak specimen trees. A balustrade gravel terrace overlooked a lawn with pools and jet fountains. A stone foot bridge crossed the natural canyon which runs through the property, which also had a palm garden, tree ferns and Russian Maples. Mrs. Crocker was a horticulturist and the seeds from the stone pines came from Hadrian's Villa.
New Place was purchased by the Burlingame Country Club in 1954 and still has notable garden features. Imported urns and planted pots decorate the house terrace and a sarcophagus, shown in early photographs, still remains on th south terrace. A birdbath in a small temple stands between two giant Sequoia in the north-eastern part of the garden. A cutting garden is maintained for decorating the club. Modern additions include putting green, croquet court, tennis courts, and a golf and tennis pro shop. In this picture, Irish Yews flank the stairs to the flower garden. This fountain was moved to Huntington Park, San Francisco. It is called Fountain of the Tortoises.
