Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, landscape designs, nursery invoices with plant names, correspondence, and other information.
General:
Located in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, the McGuire Garden was designed by Perry Wheeler in 1957 and was fully established by the time he photographed it in the spring of 1959. Its large flagstone, cast stone, and Belgian paver terrace was especially striking when viewed from above, highlighting its interlocking circle and semi-circle pattern. A central fountain provided a focal point, while the perimeter of the space featured a variety of trees and shrubs including osmanthus, boxwood, azalea, holly, and magnolia. Small beds were planted with bulbs for the spring and presumably featured changing seasonal splashes of color. Ample seating for outdoor entertaining was also provided. A 1965 letter from Mrs. McGuire to Wheeler regarding a bulb purchase shows that Wheeler maintained an ongoing relationship with this client.
Persons associated with the garden include Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, 1957-1965) and Mr. and Mrs. E. Perkins McGuire (former owners, ca. 1957-1965).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of magazine and newspaper articles featuring the garden, and other information.
General:
The Georgetown garden of Admiral Neill Phillips and his wife Grace Hendrick Phillips (for whom a boxwood cultivar was named) was designed by Perry Wheeler in 1952, with construction and installation moving forward in that year. By April 1953 the garden was featured on the annual Georgetown Garden Tour. Wheeler's design for the small space included a brick wall for privacy, brick paving of most of the garden area, and an unusually shaped pool with twin fountain spouts and a striking sculpture. A variety of shrubs and small trees lined the perimeter, with emphasis on boxwood. Seating was provided throughout the garden. Duplicates of many of the images, the originals of which are in the Perry Wheeler Collection, may be found in the Garden Club of America Collection. The prints originated with Condé Nast Publications and appear to have been associated with a magazine article about the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, 1952-1953) and Admiral Neill Phillips and Grace Hendrick Phillips (former owners, 1951-1966).

Dover -- The Samuel and Beverly Ryburn Wildflower Garden

Collection Creator:
Engle, Corliss Knapp  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
The Samuel and Beverly Ryburn Wildflower Garden (Dover, Massachusetts).
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Dover
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and a copy of an article.
General:
A nearly 40-foot wide, 10 to 18 foot high rock ledge on an abandoned 12-acre farm was developed into a wildflower garden during the 1980s after the owners discovered how to make use of this natural feature, aided by their study of Japanese garden design. An initial attempt to smooth over the rock's contours with hundreds of wheelbarrows of soil dug and brought uphill from their woods was unattractive, and the soil was removed. By basing their design on a Japanese rock garden format they used the natural depressions in the rock for pocket gardens. Four larger depressions were deepened and concreted to make pools that were connected to a submerged recycling water pump. Dwarf varieties of cypress, spruce, weeping larch, Japanese cut leaf maple, and rhododendron were planted in other pockets deep enough for small trees and shrubs. Creeping juniper, partridgeberry, pipsissewa, wintergreen, and native small shrubs grew to form mats and screens. Native wildflowers took root wherever there was soil or cracks in the rock. Twenty species and varieties of ferns adapted to shady spots. The rock garden was a feature of the larger, more conventional gardens and terraces on the property. The Japanese design theme was repeated in an arched wooden bridge, wood-slab benches, a stone lantern, and a bronze Japanese crane. Other hardscape elements were retrieved from the woods and repurposed: flat stones from an old wall were used as stepping stones and lichen-covered boulders were placed to counterbalance the heft of the wildflower rock garden.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, a detailed description of the garden (including plant names), copies of articles about the garden, and other information.
General:
Located in Westchester County, Wildflower Farm's comparatively new (since 1995) garden complements its century-old house surrounded by mature trees. Its design, including hardscaping, was carefully planned to unify the land with the house, for example by using hedges and shrubs to provide a transitional level to the landscape between the house and the trees. Several smaller gardens are situated throughout the nearly 20-acre site, among them a parterre (near the Classical Revival porch on the eastern side of the house), a peony garden, a rhododendron enclave, a Japanese-inspired azalea garden, and the studio garden, located outside the owner's design studio. Less formal features include a vegetable garden, cutting gardens, and an old apple orchard. Dogwoods, magnolias, sycamores, and Camperdown elms are but a few of the trees that are found throughout the property. The entire design and execution capitalizes on beautiful woodland views and the strong presence of the stone house. In addition to contemporary (2007) photographs of the garden, the file includes six copy prints made from images originally taken ca. 1906-1909, showing construction and early landscaping of the house.
Persons and firms associated with the site include Laura Fisher (creator of the garden and former owner, 1995-2007), Hitch Lyman (garden designer, 1995-2007); Babb, Cook & Welch (architects, 1906); Henry Marion Howe (former owner, 1906-1920); and Salvador and Erick Perez (gardeners, 1995 to date).
