"The 16 slides show the progression of the garden from the entrance gate past the recirculating stream that ends in a beautiful pond at one end of the garden. There is a gravel garden area and several benches to stop by. Tall Douglas Firs encircle the whole site, so there is a dramatic change from the very suburban landscape this office building inhabits. (A steak house, a Union 76 gas station, a mini-mall strip)
"The garden is almost 15 years old, and has been constantly maintained by Kurisu, International. It is always presentable for viewing. Hoichi Kurisu has done many landscapes in Portland, Oregon. It was difficult choosing his best work. We looked at homes and huge condominium developments. We chose this design because it has created a real oasis of beauty in a very chaotic suburban sprawl area. He is a very talented and capable landscape designer."

Wilpen Hall (Sewickley, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Allegheny -- Sewickley
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, historical information and photocopies of the landscape architect's drawings for the 1924 garden.
General:
Wilpen Hall was built by architect George S. Orth (d.1911) in the late 1890's as a summer 'cottage' estate for the industrialist William Penn Snyder, with its original formal gardens designed by William Pitkin, Jr. and Seward H. Mott and in place by 1924. The original 162-acre property was a self-sustaining estate that employed twenty persons to maintain the terraced formal gardens and parterres based on Victorian English garden design, the sweeping lawns, a woodlands garden, proprietary gas and water resources, and planted fields.
Now 56 acres of the terraced property still feature distinct garden areas: a formal white garden planted with shrubs including boxwood, white pine and dogwood, iris and allium bulbs, perennial phlox and annuals including zinnia, nicotiana, cleome, dusty miller and petunias. A lengthy rose border along a wall is planted with floribunda climbing roses; a sloping rock garden is planted with arborvitae, dwarf cedar and dwarf Andromeda, and mounding perennials including stonecrop, sedums and lavender. Hydrangea standards and peony beds remain from the original 1920s gardens. Further from the house there are woodland gardens with gingko, maple, sycamore and paw paw forming the upper story that is under planted with bulbs, perennials and ground covers.
Wilpen Hall was listed in the National Register of Historic Places April 20, 2011 and was awarded an historic landmark plaque in 2001 from the List of Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation.
Persons associated with the garden include: William Penn Snyder (former owner, 1898-1931); William Penn Snyder, Jr. (former owner, 1931-1975); William Pitkin, Jr. and Seward H. Mott (landscape architects, 1924); Donald Wilson (gardener, 1956-present); Cathy and Paul Kentzel (managers, 2006-present); Travis Wanner (arborist, 2006-present).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and historic information.
General:
Named after a slave who planted a flower garden on this rock ledge long before the town formerly known as Prides Crossing became popular for vacation homes for Bostonians, this property with its shingle style house was built in the 1880's with large windows facing the ocean view. However, the first owner did not install a garden. The second owner built a 3,400 square foot formal garden away from the house, walled with native stone and hidden from view on the four acre property. Comprised of a rectangle and a circle, the geometrically organized space was on two levels connected by stairs. In the 20th century the lower circular garden was shaded by a hemlock grove and featured a central pond with Henri Crenier's boy and turtle fountain sculpture. A flower border with anemones, foxgloves, lupines, gas plants, bugbane, iris and heliotrope was planted between the rough stone walls and patterned path of Majorcan pebbles that was installed, circa 1920. The rectangular upper garden had a wall fountain and tea house at one end with boxwood edged beds of roses, phlox, peonies and foxgloves with a heliotrope standard in the center. English ivy and climbing hydrangeas grew over the walls.
By 2012 when the most recent restoration of the garden was begun the rose and perennial beds were long gone, having been shaded out and replaced by lawn by an intervening owner. Shade loving perennials including astilbe, foxglove, lupine, and heliotrope were planted around the perimeter of that lawn. The lawn in the lower circular garden, now in full sun, was edged with pink dianthus and catmint. Korean dogwood and boxwood were planted on the rise between the two gardens, climbing roses were planted to climb the walls, and clematis was planted to climb the new arches over the gates. This restoration kept the hardscape walls, wall fountain, built-in bench and belvedere (tea house) and was completed in 2014.
Persons associated with the garden are General Charles Greeley Loring, Jr. (1828-1902) (former owner 1881-1902); Quincy Adams Shaw (former owner, 1902-1960); Sarah Pemberton Shaw (former owner, 1902-1945); Lydia Eliot Codman Shaw (former owner, 1947-1966); Samuel Eliot Codman (former owner, 1966-2008); William Ralph Emerson (1833-1917) (architect, 1881-1883); Arthur Little (1852-1925) & Herbert W.C. Browne (1860-1949) (architects of additions, 1903-1905); Henri Crenier (1873-1948) (sculptor, 1910); Laura Gibson (landscape architect, 2012- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, an abbreviated garden plan, and a photocopy of the 1913 garden design, including plant lists.
General:
The gardens on this now-vanished 220-acre estate were established in the early 1900s and appear to have survived intact until the 1950s. During that time the property was owned by Thomas N. McCarter. In 1913 a detailed plan for the formal garden was prepared by the landscape architectural firm of Brinley and Holbrook. This was a typical country estate of the period, a working farm situated on the highest point between two rivers, the Navesink and the Shrewsbury. In addition to the formal pergola garden, the garden's other main feature seems to have been a fantastic allée of buttonwood (sycamore) trees by the entrance drive. The house, located on Rumson Road, has survived, but most of the surrounding land has been sold.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Thomas N. McCarter (former owner, 1903-ca. 1950) and Brinley and Holbrook (landscape architects, 1913).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies (with photo illustrations) of book sections and articles about the gardens, and other information.
General:
Woodhaven was the estate of Robert Foster and Laura Baxter Maddox and at the time it was first developed, in the early 1900s, lay about six miles north of downtown Atlanta in what is now the Buckhead section of the city. Beginning with a 75-acre property where woods ended in a deep ravine, the owners (with Laura Maddox doing the design work) adapted the site to more favorable landscape conditions. The ravine was terraced to prevent erosion and became an expansive, terraced sunken garden, the first formal garden of any significance in Atlanta. Native trees were augmented with ornamental trees and shrubs, while the bowl of the ravine became a pool to hold the water that naturally drained there. The circular surrounding area was frequently used as a natural theater. In addition to this sunken garden there was also a "Pergola Garden." Roses, perennials, hedges, lawns, walkways, sculpture, and other features made this a garden of interest in all seasons. After World War II the property was subdivided, with the Maddox family retaining 25 acres. In the 1960s the State of Georgia purchased about 20 acres as the site for a new governor's mansion. The Maddox house was demolished, although the gardens and carriage house were retained (noted landscape architect Edward L. Daugherty designed the site immediately around the new governor's mansion). Significant enhancements to the gardens were made in the 1980s.
Images of the garden as it existed during the ownership of the Maddox family were used to create the slide copies in the Archives of American Gardens' collection, which apparently date to 1987.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert Foster and Laura Baxter Maddox (former owners and landscape designer, 1906-1965).

Scope and Contents:
17 35mm slides (photographs) and 1 file folder. Image date from 1922, 1925, 1926 and 1940.
General:
Georgia's climate and flora were similar enough to Tuscany to inspire this Italian Baroque style house and gardens on a 40-acre property, designed by J. Neel Reid in 1923. There was a boundary screen of cedars and cherry laurel along the road with a winding drive to the entrance court through pine underplanted with native azaleas. Additional plantings of oleaster, yucca and gardenias led to wisteria on a loggia, espaliered magnolias, and pots and tubs of pomegranates, orange trees, oleanders and geraniums. North of the house there were steps to a formal boxwood and clipped ivy parterre with a small pool in the center and a tiny frog pool to one side in a wild garden of azaleas, kalmias and native ferns growing above mixed violets. Beyond the parterre an oval stretch of lawn had another pool with a tall water jet, enclosed by a hedge of sheared arbor vitae bordered by a double allée of magnolias. On the other side of the house the courtyard overlooked the tennis court, orchard, terraced cutting garden, and the road to a farm and vineyard partly screened by pine, mimosa and bamboo. Additional Italian-style features included large terra cotta jars and stone pots of aloes and azaleas, climbing vines on the buff-colored high walls of the terrace, and two Baroque statues at the sides of the shallow steps.

Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Calhoun (former owners, 1923-1948); Mr. and Mrs. Roby Robinson (former owners, 1948-1961); Mr. and Mrs. Allison Thornwell (former owners, 1961- ); J. Neel Reid (architect and landscape designer, c. 1923-1925); Philip Trammell Shutze (terrace gardens designer, c. 1925).

Scope and Contents:
"The Tullie Smith House is located on the same grounds. See also the Tullie Smith House, Atlanta, Georgia."

Materials relating to the public gardens located in Altanta, Georgia. The folder includes slide list, brochures, excerpts from publications featuring the gardens, and a description and worksheet completed by a GCA researcher. The gardens are noted for its walled boxwood garden that terminates in twin pairs of fantastic Ionic columns supporting broken pediments. The gardens are owned by the Altanta Historical Society.
General:
"The boxwood garden is located to the south of the house, acting as a cross axis and transition between the facades at the front and rear of the house. There is a dual stylistic nature of Italian themes and filtered through English experience."
"There is a fountain at the center of the cross axis of paths. Urns flank the garden's side entrances, and were decorated with pieces of lava to give it the look of Italian ruins. There are parterres, defined by clay roof tiles, and planted with perennials. The garden paths were made of a buff colored gravel, and the stucco was tinted to make the house appear aged. The gardens were restored to the 1928 design in 1997."

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The Turner Lynch Garden is located on a 3.08 acre property in the historic district of Peachtree Heights Park. The architecture firm Carrère & Hastings planned the district's street layout, a curvilinear design that incorporates the natural terrain of the region. In keeping with this plan, a long winding driving driveway leads to the Mediterranean style house which is sited at the crest of a gently sloping hill. While preserving the bones of the original landscape, the Turner Lynch Garden features a series of garden rooms that have been developed by the present owner. These include a formal rose garden, a Japanese woodland garden, a conifer garden, and a children's playhouse garden. Original to the property, a perennial garden dates back to the early 1920's when it was termed a "round garden." The four quadrants of the garden, which mirror each other, have been enlarged to accommodate a larger planting area, and annual plants are added to provide color in late summer.
The front of the house features a large fescue lawn framed with border plantings offering the architectural features of the house as the focal point of that view. A terrace at the back of the house features a knot garden that overlooks a reflecting pool below, with a view of the perennial garden beyond. From the terrace and the perennial garden the sloping property continues down to a wooded area featuring rock walls and tile paths that wind through the trees and a recirculating stream and three ponds accented with small wooden bridges and stone benches.
Persons associated with the garden include: Harold O. Rogers (former owner, 1923-1927); J.W. (Wick) Goldsmith (former owner, 1927-1928); Clarence Haverty (former owner, 1928-1986); A. Emmett Barnes IV (former owner, 1986-1989); Pringle and Smith (architects, 1921); and T.C. Wesley (contractor/builder, 1922/1923).

General:
"Part of the large half block was bought at a Sheriff's sale in 1908 by Joseph R. Lamar, the only Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court from Georgia. Porter Fleming bought part of this tract to build his home in 1911 and the community, Summerville, became part of Augusta in 1919. The Berry Flemings, the builder's son, lived here in the 1940's. Dr. Albert Saunders bought it in 1952 and the Medical College of Georgia owned it from 1970 to 1978."
"The brick wall in front has been extended to include three hand forged iron gates, which enhance the beauty and security of the property. A raised terrace has been added in front of the main entrance. It is planted with a mass of small boxwoods with weeping crabapples as accents. The spacious driveway has been paved with concrete tinted the same color of the house, kept authentic by maintaining the original house paint."
"The pool area in the side yard is screened by a row of Mary Nell Hollies along the drive. Privacy from the next door neighbors is achieved by a man-made berm covered with Cryptomeria which will eventually block the view of (and from) the next house."
"The patio/courtyard area behind the house is raised to the level of the rooms opening onto it. It has been restored according to original drawings with the addition of pediments and stone features from the old Georgia Railroad Bank, which was demolished. A stone balustrade was imported from England. The columns support climbing hydrangeas."

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes plans, drawings, and a description and worksheet done by GCA researcher Katherine Mackie.
General:
"The Underwood House and Garden were built in the art deco period. The house is Mediterranean style, featuring stucco columns and chains, reflecting pool and flower beds, as well as expansive grass and wooded areas.
"This Cumming Road property, just across the stree from the old Bon Aire Hotel, consists of 1 1/2 acres of grounds and a Mediterranean house built by W. Orison Underwood in 1929. Mr. Underwood was Secretary of State. He and his wife were regular winter visitors to Augusta. The garden, neglected after the Great Depression, has been restored. The main feature of the garden is a double row of concrete pillars connected by chains, which border a refelcting pool and flower beds (originally these were probably roses, now they are filled with daylilies) with an arched stucco wall at the far end."
"The best view of this house is from the main level of the house, a full story above the garden and designed with the view from above in mind. The area behind the house is heavily wooded. There are interesting 'bones' from the past including a cistern, well, and decaying fences. From the house, one can see an impressive view of downtown Augusta and the immediate view of neighbors is screened with a row of Little Gem Magnolias. "
Persons associated with the property include: W. Orison and Bessie Underwood (former owners from 1929 to 1947); Virginia B. Weiss (former owner from 1947 to 1951); Winifred Zimmerman (former owner from 1951 to 1971); Joseph and Elizabeth Savage (former owners from 1971 to 1979).
