Place:
Agate Nursery (Bainbridge Island, Washington)
United States of America -- Washington -- Kitsap County -- Bainbridge Island
General:
"Seven acres on Bainbridge Island across from Puget Sound started as a woods and play area for five children and grew patch by patch into a absolutely beautiful garden."
"There is a serene pond (from ground water) with appropriate plantings, a planted terrace overlooking Puget Sound, paths winding charmingly between various planting areas, a walled garden, native material en masse, a grass garden with many varieties, a succulent plant area, a swimming pool surrounded by fences and trellises draped with plants."
"It is a horticultural gem - hundreds of varieties of plants from the Northwest and all over the world. Interestingly, the plants have determined the garden design rather than the reverse."
Persons associated with the property include: Nels Nelson (former owner from 1930 to 1953).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet with additional information about individuals associated with the garden, site plans, a copy of Donald Culross Peattie's booklet about the site, and copies of brochures and newspaper articles.
General:
Pearson's Falls is a 267-acre tract of land that the Tryon Garden Club of Tryon, NC, rescued from development in 1931. The falls were discovered by Charles William Pearson, a young engineer searching for a route for the Southern Railway in 1876. He purchased the land and it remained in the Pearson family until it was bought by the Tryon Garden Club. It is maintained today by a caretaker and volunteers from the club. Within the tract a wild flower garden and preserve are maintained. It is located in an unusual climatic area in the Blue Ridge Mountains called the "Isothermal Belt," where the winters are lighter and the summers longer, providing unusual growth possibilities. Located on Colt Creek just before it joins the Pacolet River, the garden preserve has over 200 species of wild flowers growing in the granite rocks and loamy soil along the creek. The garden walk follows the creek up to the 90-foot falls. There are blooms except in deepest snow. The property, which is open to the public for a small fee, is truly one of the gems of preservation of a natural garden and provides significant opportunities for study and wild flower identification.
Persons and organizations associated with the site include: Charles William Pearson (former owner, 1876-1903); Giles Pearson (former owner, 1903-1931); Donald Culross Peattie (naturalist and author); Oliver M. Freeman (botanist); and the Tryon Garden Club (owners and gardeners, 1931 to date).

Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet; site plan; copies of photographs; and plant list.
General:
Behind a green wall of Nellie R. Stevens holly and Little Gem magnolias, an Italian Renaissance style villa and garden exists on one acre. The owners wanted to build a "forever" home and garden for themselves, children, and grandchildren. The garden incorporates a series of outdoor rooms in the European manner. Rectangular lead planters with formally clipped boxwood frame the wide entry steps to the house. A terrace of four colors of sandstone forms a three-dimensional effect as an approach to a porch. The core feature of this Italian Renaissance style garden, an allée of standard Natchez crepe myrtle and a linear parterre of clipped boxwood with Italian terra-cotta olive jars lies along its main axis. On the west side of the house, one enters a series of three different outdoor rooms connected by open iron gates. The first is centered by an oval parterre and a wall of espaliered pears and magnolias trained into an arch. The second outdoor room is a terrace of French limestone and a rectangular mosaic pool. The third room is an allée of Savannah hollies leading to the garden house. The formal back garden is centered by an allée of crepe myrtle joining the veranda to the magnolia-lined room, filled by the celadon mosaic swimming pool and cherub fountain. Off the central axis to the west, one walks down three grass steps to a sunken garden with bay laurel trees. The east sunken garden mirrors the west in symmetry, but has a thick lawn of fescue grass. The back garden to the east of the pool is a sun-filled parterre of boxwood for summer vegetables, herbs, and flowers. A surrounding circle of ten-foot tall iron pillars hosts repeat blooming white Sombreuil roses trained into swags by chains connecting the pillars. An allée of East Palatka holly exists on the east side of the property with crushed stone walkway.
People associated with this property include: Richard Robertson (architect, 1995-2000); and Paul Fields, ASLA of Lambert Landscape Company (landscape architect, 2000-2007).

Cornwall -- Henry's Hill

Provenance:
Garden Club of New Haven  Search this
Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Henry's Hill (Cornwall Hollow, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield County -- Cornwall -- Cornwall Hollow
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of an article, and a write-up of the family's history with the property.
General:
Property records for the large parcel of land in which Henry's Hill is located date back to the late 18th century, and the land was used for farming and foresting into the twentieth century. The current owners inherited the house and about eleven acres and set about redesigning the house and installing gardens. The main garden at Henry's Hill is bordered by old low stone walls planted with 8-foot deep borders of perennials and shrubs, with two foot wide maintenance paths inside the walls, designed by Tiziana Hardy. A formal garden comprised of two varieties of boxwood, winter gem and green velvet, container plantings, blocks of stone, and gravel paths was established north of the house. A water garden comprised of three ponds surrounded by compatible plantings lies to the northeast outside the walls. An island bed of ornamental grasses lies east of the house.
Another 300 acres were set aside in 1984 through a conservation easement that protects 40 acres of farmland, more than 200 acres of forest, and an aquifer underlying the Hollenbeck River and watershed from further development. Nearly a mile of the Appalachian Trail transverses the easement property.
In the 1920s during the ownership of Dr. and Mrs. Lieb flower gardens designed by the Elm City Nursery Company, Woodmont Nursery Inc., Landscape Engineers of New Haven, Connecticut, replaced old pastures. The property was no longer farmed and was used as a summer and week-end estate. The subsequent owner, Laurens Hammond, invented the Hammond organ; his widow Roxana Scoville Hammond was responsible for the conservation and protection plan. Some of the agricultural land attached to Henry's Hill has been repurposed as a beef cattle business by the next generation of the owners' family.
Tim Prentice, who renovated the house circa 2000, is a local architect and kinetic sculptor responsible for maintaining the historic character of many houses in the area of Cornwall Hollow.
Persons associated with the garden include Thaddeus Ford and descendants (formers owners, 1782-1860); Heman Harrison (former owner, 1860-1897); M.E. Harrison (former owner, 1897-1906); E. Baldwin (former owner, 1906-1920); Dr. & Mrs. Charles Lieb (former owners, 1920-1957); Laurens & Roxana Scoville Hammond (former owners, 1957-2000); Tiziana Hardy, (landscape designer, 2001); Tim Prentice (redesign of house, 2000-2001); Mary Daalhuyzen (Head gardener, 2001-2008).

"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).
Sand Hills Garden Club facilitated the submission of this garden's documentation.

General:
This 1/3 acre residential garden was established in 1995. The landscape was designed by a friend of the current owners, Dr. Wayne Babin, an experienced landscape and garden designer. He and his wife, Kathy, also a Gertrude Windsor Garden Club member, are accomplished horticulturists. Its distinct garden areas, antique artifacts and planters, and consistency of shades and shapes of green, all interconnected by paths of crushed granite, pea gravel, stone and brick.
In the front part of the garden, the pea gravel pathway bordered by dwarf yaupon hedges creates a horizontal allee that bisects the entire space and contrasts with the vertical lines of the home with its symmetric entry and Mansard roofline. Beds of Asian jasmine are juxtaposed with beds of leafier English ivy. The groundcover here is Blue Atlas Cedar and a 'Green Hornet' maple sits amidst the hardwoods and dogwood on the perimeter. The entrance features crushed granite and wire topiaries, with the doorway guarded by antique concrete reclining lions. A small gravel garden to the left of the entry and outside the dining room's window is lined with clipped boxwood and features an antique terracotta planter. Along the driveway, privacy from the street is created by a brick and treillage pergola draped in wisteria. An English terracotta planter on stand and faux bois table and bench are also featured here. More crushed granite lies between brick borders ending at the homeowner's raised herb garden. A cloud hedge of yaupon borders the driveway. Square planters with clipped boxwood globes are placed throughout the brick terrace. Along the far side of the drive, two concrete planters with globe shaped boxwood are interspersed with aspidistra, yaupon hedges and camellias.
The original back terrace's half-rounded shape allowed for Dr. Babin's use of triangular beds with aerial hedges of Savannah hollies under planted with dwarf mondo grass. Down two steps and past this hedge is a flagstone terrace and then an octagonal shaped gravel garden adorned with a pair of antique obelisks and centered with an iron dolphin whose shell shaped container is planted with lemon balm sedum. Surrounding these rooms are a row of Cherry laurels planted along the back fence and pruned yearly to keep their height contained, also varieties of azaleas, including some from the original garden planted in the 1970's, dogwood, pittosporum, viburnum, a needlepoint holly and a small stand of little gem magnolias. In a prominent spot nestled among the azaleas blooms is an immense 'Gunsmoke' camellia planted in the late 1960's. In contrast to the verdant abundance at eye level, pale concrete planters of varying shapes and sizes all hold clipped boxwoods rounded to perfection. A series of dwarf yaupons also rounded are planted in the beds next to the terraces.
Persons associated with the garden include: Johnston Family (former owners, 1965-1966); Roper Family (former owners, 1966-1980); Norton Family (former owners, 1980-1983); Dr. Wayne Babin (garden designer, 2000-present); Laurie Breedlove (horticulturist, 2008-present).
