Place:
World War II Memorial Garden (Erie, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Erie County -- Erie
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a photocopy of an article, and other information.
General:
Created under the direction of the late John C. Ferguson, the World War II Memorial of Erie Pennsylvania was dedicated on November 11, 1999. The memorial is comprised of a garden and granite blocks engraved with the names of 727 soldiers from Erie County who died while in service during World War II, a brief pictorial history of the war, and images of a number of veterans who survived the war. The original landscaping for the site was designed to complement the memorial and to minimize maintenance needs. At its inception plantings included silver maples, a juniper hedge, pampas grasses, black-eyed Susans, and daylilies.
In 2001 John Ferguson asked his son, Tim Ferguson to assume responsibility for the upkeep of the landscape, which had been maintained by contracted professional landscaping crews. Tim took the opportunity to become more personally invested in the caretaking of the memorial and over the next few years he made various improvements to the property to enhance certain aspects of the memorial and to add more variety of color to the landscaping. Bradford pear trees were added to complement the scale of the monument, provide shade in the summer, and add color as they bloom in the spring. Shrub roses, an addition inspired by military cemeteries in France, Belgium and Luxembourg, and gold mop juniper were added for color; the black-eyed Susans were replaced with Ninebark, as well as arborvitae, and boxwood, to provide a sheltering effect and promote a more serene environment. Red and white geraniums are used to add color, as are tulips and daffodils, and dwarf Japanese Maples add additional privacy and screening and provide a thematic link to the Pacific Ocean theater of World War II.
Persons and groups associated with the garden include: John C. Ferguson (chairman, 1998-2006), John Timothy Ferguson (director, 2000-present), Erie School District (property owner), The Seedlings Garden Club (garden volunteers), Dan Dahlkemper (landscape architect, 1998-1999), Mike Geiger/Geiger & Sons (designer, stonemason, 1998-1999), Prudence Burnes (graphic artist, 1999)

This was 5 ½ acre garden was established by the current owners in 1986. The garden features a formal Japanese water garden with descending ponds, bridges, and a tea house, as well as woodland areas with meandering paths, rooms, and specimen trees. The entrance to the property is marked by metal gates with fieldstone pillars flanked by Ilex crenata. The border to the entrance is planted with pachysandra, rhododendron, Canadian hemlock, and flowering dogwood. An island of rhododendron and Korean azalea lies between the driveway and the parking circle.
Major hardscape features on the property are the red Japanese Tea House and arch bridge with red and green railings. A lower pond lies at the bottom of the tea house with a nearby waterfall spilling into it. Surrounding the pond are iris and Japanese crabapple. A fountain terrace at the end of the lawn features a round pool with four cherubs seated around it. Two curbed flagstone terraces separated by a curved stone and flagstone bench are bordered with flowering dogwood, Japanese crabapple, Korean boxwood, and evergreen azalea. The view from the terrace features hinoki cypress and mixed hostas and ferns alongside descending ponds. Through the gazebo flanked by annual-filled urns and Rosa 'New Dawn' climbing roses lies a cutting garden divided into four quadrants. The garden is lined with flagstone paths and a circle in the middle featuring a column surrounded by daylily. The front two quadrants are mixed roses and the back are smooth hydrangea. Each exit has a wrought iron arch, two with Japanese honeysuckle and one with white climbing roses. A white oak grove stands at the east end of the house, featuring a thatched and timbered dog house modeled after the main house. Facing south is a large expanse of lawn bordered by banks of rosebay rhododendron with two Chippendale benches. The secret garden is enclosed by yew and features two stone benches that flank a circular bed of ilex with a statue in the center.
The upper pond is shaded by a large tulip tree and mixed oaks. A low arch bridge next to the Catawba rhododendron crosses the stream between the upper pond and the koi pond. The koi pond is surrounded by large boulders found on the property, as well as statuary and meandering stone paths planted with rhododendron. A large Japanese maple stands by the koi pond. A stone bridge engraved with a quote by Andrew Jackson, crosses back towards the koi pond. Conn Lane, named after one of the designers, starts at the stone utility structure with a gothic-arched door built into the berm. The roof is topped with pachysandra and a metal swan. Boxwood and English ivy create the border. The gravel path leading from north to south has a stone wall on the west side and is flanked by bigleaf hydrangea, mixed ferns, and ilex. Through the yew hedge is a garden room with rosebay rhododendron, astilbe, English ivy, mixed ferns and hosta. Natural-locust post stairs lead up the berm next to a giant shagbark hickory. The second garden room has a semi-circular stone walled area planted with trailing myrtle, astilbe, mixed ferns, hosta, and Korean boxwood.

House in the Garden (Winnetka, Illinois)
United States of America -- Illinois -- Cook -- Winnetka
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
The three acre property was cleared of all but two trees and graded so that the house, nine garden rooms, and even the walk into the woodland garden would be accessible to people with differing physical abilities. The house is styled after a 16th century French manor house without stairs that might impede anyone from entering. Garden rooms are enclosed by tall clipped yew hedges in the neoclassical style. The formal motor court in front of the house has a double row of pleached linden at the perimeter and a central medallion of clipped boxwood, English ivy, lawn and four sphere shaped yews. The terrace behind the house is edged with petunias in summer leading to a lawn and a woodland garden planted with evergreens and wildflowers. Along one side of the central lawn there is an allée of honey locust with large containers filled with tulips in spring and hydrangeas in summer backed by a perennial and shrub garden with a white garden at one end that includes roses, cosmos and tree peonies. Parterres planted with roses and varieties of herbs that would have been found in monastery gardens, topiaries shaped like swans, and a pergola covered by wisteria were inspired by a 16th century French engraving. West of the house in one of the few pitched areas there is a paved patio with boxwood clipped to resemble billowing clouds, known as the amphitheater. A wetlands known as the dells was constructed to retain run-off from heavy rainfall.
Throughout the property the walkways are wide and flat so that a person in a wheel chair could have another person walking beside them. Fragrance also was an important quality when choosing plants. An antique maple shades a provincial fountain, redbuds, violas, and ferns, and the other historic tree on the property is an elm. The property attracts wildlife, including more than 120 bird species that feed on the berries, breeding mallards, and a fox family. Various evergreen and deciduous trees around the perimeter are enclosed by woven willow branch wattle fencing.
Persons associated with the garden include Thomas H. Beeby (architect, 1990); Deborah Nevins (landscape designer, 1992); Bartlett Tree Experts (arborist, 2016- ); Mariani Landscape (landscape architects, 2016- ).
