Short Hills -- Repton

Place:
Repton (Short Hills, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Essex -- Short Hills
Scope and Contents:
The file includes worksheets and photocopies of historic photographs.
General:
The first garden borders attempted by the owner of this 1929 half-timbered Tudor style house were filled with fifty roses, species day lilies, hollyhocks and delphiniums inside low stone walls that had been cleared of brambles and debris and repaired. Hot, humid summer weather and voracious deer necessitated a rethinking of this design. Through trial and error the English-born owner found plants that deer do not eat. Perennials include foxglove, peony, iris, nepeta, astilbe, clematis, lavender, salvia, Russian sage, ferns and honeysuckle. Boxwood shrubs have thrived, replacing damaged yews and disguising deer damage to the lower branches of mature western cedar trees. Two roses remain: one in the back garden climbing on the playhouse and a rambler next to the lamppost near the street. The one-acre property includes a large expanse of lawn with perennial and shade gardens all bordered by stone, and a small pond and waterfall with a water garden. A spring riding horse set in the lawn came with the property; the owner also has a collection of vintage metal watering cans on display. Stone animals including rabbits, hedgehogs and a pig decorate the garden and steps. There are numerous birdhouses, a shaded birdbath and winterberry to welcome birds to this garden.
The property was originally part of the four and one-half acre Charlecote estate (AAG Garden #NJ023) that was subsequently subdivided; that estate's gardener lived in the house on this property. A forty-foot long greenhouse and furnace house were sited on the property but later demolished due to their deteriorated condition.
Persons associated with the garden include: Erling D. and Elinore F. Naess (former owners until 1945); John and Hazel Laird (former owners, 1945-1955); Hazel Laird (former owner, 1955-1960); Richard E. and Anne B. Fowler (former owners, 1960-1979).

Feathers (Mill Neck, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- Mill Neck
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of an article, photocopies of historical records, garden plans, and a title summary for the property.
General:
The formal walled garden at Feathers, created in 1996 by the current owner along with landscape designer Lisa Thompson, is a small part of the six and one-half acre property with the original circa 1730 house. The 31 by 23 foot formal garden is divided into four parterres edged in boxwood with walks made from old bricks to match a standing old brick wall. A pink rose standard grows in the center of each parterre, surrounded by low-growing ground covers and annual flowers such as pansies. The brick wall is covered in climbing hydrangea and clematis, and has three arched doorways that lead into the garden. A bronze sculpture of the owner's son as a child created by his grandmother, Mary Emma Flood (1900-1987), overlooks the garden from a niche in the brick wall.
The spring-fed property overlooks Beaver Lake, where there is a small house and rock and fern garden. There is another garden of perennial and ornamental grasses near the lake, and many mature trees. A brick room next to the main house that held a furnace in earlier days has New Dawn roses trellised on the roof.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Wright (former owner and builder of the original house, circa 1730-1741); Isaac Frost and members of the Frost family (former owners, circa 1741-1763); John Underhill and members of the Underhill family (former owners, 1763-1901); Ella Kennard (former owner, 1901); Harvey Murdock and members of the Murdock family (former owners, 1901-1927); Alicia Gamble Ludlow (former owner, 1927-1953); Innis, Helen S., and Blanche S. O'Rourke (former owners, 1953-1973); Harvey L. and Cornelia D. Schwartz (former owners, 1973-1983); David W.C. Clark (former owner, 1983-1987); Norman C. and Kathleen H. Keith (former owners, 1987-1994); Helen Dillon (landscape designer, 1995); Lisa Thompson (landscape designer, 1996); Robert Gahagan (architect of new addition, 1997); Mary Emma Flood (sculptor of bronze statue of child).
This property has been extensively researched for the transfers of title beginning in 1685, when a deed of sale was signed by individuals who were likely Matinecock Indians.
