Place:
Gardener's Cottage (Manchester, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Bennington County -- Manchester
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and detailed garden plans with plant lists.
General:
This ca. 3.5-acre garden site was originally part of the model working farm on the Wilbur estate. Remains of old foundations, walkways, and stone walls that were once part of the farm and its buildings delineate part of the current garden. The old potting shed and greenhouse (now used as a study) had large glass structures extending out from them. The outlines of these glass structures are still visible on the walls of the remaining buildings and old foundations are still evident on the lawn. The remains of a pool and fountain have become a daylily bed and the old stone wall foundation has become the main garden. The garden takes its name from the fact that the owner's house was once the estate gardener's cottage. Because of the size of the house and its age (ca. 1790), the owner has designed the garden to be small and informal, old-fashioned and casual, like an English cottage garden.
Persons associated with the property include: James B. Wilbur (former owner, 1908-1929); James B. Wilbur, Jr. (former owner, 1929-1933); Mrs. James B. Wilbur, Jr. (former owner, 1933-1973).

Place:
Garden of Bill Noble (Norwich, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Windsor County -- Norwich
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information, including some plant names.
General:
Located on a 19th-century Vermont farmstead, this garden has been under development since 1991 and is centered around a Greek Revival farmhouse, barn, and barn foundations on 22 acres of terraced lawns, field and woodland. The garden is focused on two acres and possesses a variety of plants not commonly encountered in Vermont gardens, including old-fashioned varieties collected from historic gardens and newer plants from other regions of the country being assessed for garden worthiness in Vermont. The main flower garden consists of four rectangular beds planted as a mixed border with deciduous shrubs, roses, herbaceous perennials, and self-sown annuals. This flower garden opens up westerly onto a lawn bordered by a 70-foot-long stone foundation wall. This border is planted for foliage interest to contrast with the floral display of the main flower garden. A rock garden with troughs is situated on the terrace above the walls in the remains of a former dairy barn, with the deteriorated cement floors providing ideal growing space for a variety of rock and alpine plants. A moss garden lies next to the former dairy in the footprint of a former stable, while the Silver and Gold border, named for the eponymous shrubby dogwood, is a transition from the foundation gardens to a field, with paths mowed into the tall grass. Other areas of interest include a vegetable garden east of the flower garden, borders of shade loving plants, an aster border, banks of native roses; and a slope of fall and winter interest with conifers, evergreen groundcovers and grasses.
March 1, 2008, is the only date indicated for all of the slides, although they appear to have been taken at various times of the year, possibly during 2007.
Persons associated with the site include Betty and Robert McKenzie (former owners, 1924-1990).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and narrative description, a copy of the garden plan, and a plant list. The garden is noted for its Edwardian strolling garden, boxwood plantings, and roses, all complementing the arts and crafts style lakeside cottage.
General:
The gardens of Tatterdemalion, situated on a two-acre site, are designed to complement this 1907 arts and crafts style lakeside cottage. The wrap-around porch is surrounded by a stone terrace edged with tea roses and a lavender hedge. Steps to the west lead across the drive to an Edwardian strolling garden, bordered by an antique 1850 wrought iron fence, acquired in Madison, Indiana. Gently curving paths radiate from a circular path which encloses a weeping crabapple tree surrounded by lamb's ears. A low box hedge curves around in a flowing line to define the lawn. A semi-circle of purple lilacs and white Blanc Double de Coubert roses frame a bronze statue of Mercury.
Hemlocks and viburnums screen the adjoining property and form the backround for antique rose bushes, the mainstay of the garden. Flowering continues throughout the summer with the addition of pastel old-fashioned flowers. A dooryard fern garden on the north side of the house faces a small orchard. To the east is a Victorian reflecting pool centered in a semi-circular enclosure of shrubs. A wisteria and rose-covered arbor frames the view into the garden.
Persons associated with the property include: C. R. Cran (former owner, 1907-1939); Avery Sherry (former owner, 1939-1957); William Beverung (former owner, 1957-1986); Judson Griggs (landscape architect, 1987-1998); Michael Sproule (consultant, 1995-1997); Kyle Johnson (hardscape gardener, 1998); and Trevor Johnson (hardscape gardener, 1998).

Diamond G. J. Ranch (Blanco, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Blanco
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The multi-acre property along the Little Blanco River was ranched and farmed for five generations by members of the Birdseil family before the current owners acquired it and began renovating a native stone house, a half-timbered and adobe house, and outbuildings for their ranching and a quarter horse operation. The gardens they have installed include native plants and other species adapted to a generally hot and dry climate with unpredictable rainfall. The modernized buildings, outbuildings, stone wall and fencing blend with the landscape and make use of native cedar, rocks and fossils found on the property. Shade is provided by fig trees planted by the owners, live oaks and arbors constructed of rough cedar logs. A native garden to the east of the main house includes Mexican plum, native persimmon, acacia, Mexican salvia, agave cactus and prickly pear. On the south side of the house a bird sanctuary and herb garden contain more drought tolerant salvias, daisies, prairie clovers, silver germander, allium, rosemary, thyme and sage, with an old livestock watering trough now used by birds. A bird bath centers a circular old-fashioned garden with beds of larkspur, poppies, catnip, Shasta daisies, old roses, salvia, gaura and euphorbia. Stockade fences are draped in morning glory and queen's crown vine, another native plant.
Along the entrance road there is a circa 1870 cemetery with the remains of six members of a pioneer family that drowned trying to cross the Little Blanco River.
Persons associated with the garden include: Herbert Bindseil and members of the Bindseil family (former owners, 1860-1991), Joe Brooks (architect, 1991-present), Sarah Westkaemper Lake (landscape designer, 2000-present).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans with plant names, copies of articles about the garden, and additional information provided by the garden owner.
General:
First planted in 1984, this small (1/3 acre), friendly garden is located on a winding little street in the midst of the many manicured and pristine gardens and lawns of University Park, directly across from the Dallas Country Club. It complements the site's Cape Cod-Norman French hybrid gray-shingled cottage with wide covered front porch, grey shingles, and blue shutters. Taking advantage of the east exposure in order to combat the wilting heat of Dallas summers, the design provides color year-round and features casual flower beds with a variety of heights, textures, and colors. The garden is famous for its spectacular display of blue hydrangeas, specimen trees, flowering trees, bulbs, perennials, annuals, and what its owner calls "old-fashioned flowers." Two large flower beds anchor the corners of the front yard. The arbor-covered back porch enables the owners and their guests to enjoy looking out on a small circular lawn and an adorable garden house. It reflects the encouragement that legendary gardener Rosemary Verey gave the owner during her two visits to the garden to plant more flowering vines for "vertical color."
Persons associated with the site include Rodger Burson (architect); Rosa Finsley (landscape architect); John Morelock (plantsman); Carl Neels (landscape architect and plantsman, 1990 to date); and Roberto Gonzalez (gardener, 1996 to date).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles about the property.
General:
The Federal style house was built ca. 1825 by Colonel Conrad Webb, and overlooks the Pamunkey River. Some colonial era plantings on the property predate the house. There was a terraced garden leading to the river, at one time called the most elaborate in the state. The property was planted with magnolia trees, crape myrtle and boxwood bordered garden beds that contained old-fashioned flowers, and also had undisturbed old-growth forest trees.
The red brick house has identical porticoes in the front and back that are supported by four two-story columns, in the style identified with Adams. Also there are walls on the property built of red brick. The original roof parapet, of early 19th c. design survives and was studied as a model for the restoration of Virginia's capital building in Richmond, in the 1980s when the property was owned by Mr. and Mrs. William J. Wallace. An overseer's house with wooden siding also was found on the property.
Persons associated with the garden include the Webb family, Colonel Conrad Webb (former owner, 1825- ) and Mr. and Mrs. William J. Wallace (former owner, 1950s-1980s).

Orchid Garden (Houston, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 12 digital images. Images 001-012 copyrighted by Fran Brennan.
General:
An urban patio garden with approximately 1,400 orchids, ponds, furnishings and decorative items, and 30 more mostly tropical plants is a conservatory. Previously the owner was a tenant in one of five modern one-story apartments that were arranged in a horizontal row, each with its own brick walled patio. He bought the building and eventually converted all the apartments into his home while the five patios were reconfigured into one 97-foot-long by 12-foot-wide garden room. An outer walkway that used to lead to each patio entrance now is a plant nursery backed by a tall wooden fence with acrylic greenhouse roofing covering the whole structure. Fans, vents and heaters are used to control the temperature. The brick walls between the old patios were partially disassembled into steps that hold plants, suggesting ruins. Leftover bricks were re-used as table supports and as paving material. The orchid collection was started in 1967 with one plant that didn't survive. Now potted orchids hang from the metal beams that support the roof, some in baskets fashioned from wire mesh that also forms shelves on the boards used as tabletops. More pots of orchids are attached to the standing brick walls, all in staggered patterns to improve air circulation. Complementary tropical plants are in pots or planted in beds. The garden room furniture and features mostly came from Mexico, Guatemala, and Spain, in rustic or hand-crafted styles.

Persons associated with the garden include: Joseph A. Ralmutto (former owner, 1960-1964); Bill Bartlett (owner, planner, designer, 1964- ).

The Garden of Peggy & Henry Valentine (Richmond, Virginia)
Scope and Contents:
13 digital images (2019, 2021) and 1 folder.
General:
The Garden of Peggy and Henry Valentine is located in the West End of Richmond, Virginia. Established in 1964, the two-third acre property epitomizes a town garden designed for year-round enjoyment. Having evolved substantially over more than sixty years, the owner has created specific garden "rooms" with plantings that are resistant to deer, voles, and rabbits. Plant selection reflects the seasonal changes with special attention given to texture and color.
Within the formal garden, a primarily pink-and- white palette creates a dramatic procession from "room" to "room", via charming transitions. The rose garden contains numerous varieties of old fashioned and David Austin varieties that are set off by an arched arbor and a tuteur. The arbor leads to a bordered lawn overlooking a brick terrace, and through an oak and Pieris japonica, it transitions to a bluestone terrace. Brick edging strengthens the garden's structure, and effective use of garden ornamentation enhances focal points throughout, drawing the eye to the center of each vista. Throughout the garden, there is an intentional use of layering: large canopy trees, including views of a neighbor's oak, and a grand magnolia in the front yard, are paired with understory trees like the Carolina silverbell, dogwood and cypress. Vines, such as climbing hydrangea, contrast the large azaleas and oak leaf hydrangeas, while small flowering shrubs and perennials complement the lawns and paved terraces. Borders are filled with seasonal annuals.
The property's Colonial Revival house was constructed in 1932.
Persons associated with the garden design include: Irene Grigg (gardener, 1970s-1980s), Karl Campe (horticulturist, 1964-1988), Gail Comer (gardener, 1990- ), Mark Cohee (rosarian, 1990-2020), Joel Koci (arborist, 1970- ).
Provenance:
The James River Garden Club faciliated this garden documentation in 2021.
