Blessings (Gearhart, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Clatsop County -- Gearhart
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and a garden plan.
General:
Established in 1984, this 2.89 acre garden borders Neacoxie Creek on the east and sits up on a bluff overlooking the Necanicum Estuary to the south, with a distant view of Tillamook Head and the Pacific Ocean. The house is situated on the far most southern boundary, maximizing the land for a garden on its northern portion. Part of the garden is situated among a grove of mature Sitka spruce, with an understory of native plants. This area is known informally as the "Woodland Garden," while a sunnier area across the road is known as the "Formal Garden." The "Formal Garden" has a landscaped lawn with a wide variety of perennials, bulbs, fruit trees, ornamental shrubs, and Japanese maples. Part of this garden area is also used for vegetables and composting.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Craig Kiest (landscape architect); and Huntington & Kiest (landscape architects).

Place:
Vollum Garden (Portland, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Multnomah County -- Portland
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and two narrative descriptions of the garden and its sculpture, one of them by the owner. The garden is noted for its sensitive design, which integrates rich plantings, water features, and sculpture into the natural setting, while reflecting the owner's love of family (many plants were contributed by family members), dogs, and the outdoor world.
General:
Originally designed by landscape architect Lawrence Underhill in the 1950s, this is a true four-season garden. The perimeter of the garden is outlined by Douglas fir, red cedar, and Pinus contorta, while Magnolia macrophyllum, dwarf 'Ever Red' Japanese lace leaf maples, enkianthus, and Viburnum davidii fill the interior. Running water and a gentle pond attract birds and frogs, while the owner's collection of sculpture enhances the garden's design and plantings. Rhododendron, tulips, iris, lilies of the valley, peonies, roses, and poppies add color and fragrance in season, as do the Japanese maples and other flowering trees and shrubs. Groundcover plants such as Pachysandra terminalis provide a green carpet throughout.
The garden received the Oregon Gardeners' Association of Nurserymen first place award for landscape, and, in 1976-1977, the American Institute of Landscape Architects' first place award.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Lawrence Underhill (landscape architect, 1955 to date); Riemers and Jollivet (contractors); and Priscilla Senior (head gardener).

General:
A 1922 Tudor-style house with three acres, listed on the National Historic Register, required extensive renovation by the current owners to preserve the original craftsmanship. The grounds were in need of reconditioning as well, including an original Japanese garden whose pond had to be re-dug, rocks repositioned, and plantings restored with more than 40 different Japanese maple trees. Landscape architect Craig Kiest's (ASLA) plan includes garden rooms, paths and hardscape, described by the owner as a classic design that features their plant collections. A circular driveway in front of the house surrounds a boxwood knot garden punctuated with container plantings. The uphill walk to the garden runs along a wall with espaliered camellias and is overlooked by a balcony for viewing the knot garden that has a wrought iron railing assembled from old gates found on the property. A serpentine rose border with more than one hundred plants is a colorful connector along the back driveway between the house and garage. An orchard, perennial bed, soccer field and upper lawn are arrayed between the house and the streets that border this corner lot.
Several bluestone terraces with stone steps and balustrades accommodate the terrain behind the house and lead to a formal garden that is on an axis with the dining room. A pergola planted with wisteria japonica crosses the entrance to the formal garden. In this garden surrounded by a hedge of holly there are boxwood parterres centered by a circular patch of lawn with an enormous restored stone planter with white Iceland roses and white alyssum in the summer. Large cast iron planters on bluestone platforms contain Japanese maples. The formal garden terminates in a seating area backed by a semi-circle of four columns and an old planting of English holly. Other features include a grotto with granite semi-circular steps and a grindstone, a wall fountain with a bronze frog, and an Italianate cobblestone patio with beds of hydrangea. Frogs and dragonflies are recurring motifs in the iron hardware on the buildings and in garden ornaments. Flowering vines and container gardens, climbing roses, and a rose and wild geranium parterre add color to the vigorous greenery that grows in this favorable climate.
The Japanese garden features the colorful Japanese maple tree collection and a pond stocked with koi. Additional trees from the earlier garden include copper beech, gingko, and Japanese umbrella pine. There is a raised vegetable garden for berries, grapes, pumpkins and artichokes with a custom made wooden fence, and wooded areas underplanted with hosta and other shade-tolerant perennials. A large lawn bisecting these forests leads to a rectangular reflecting pool with a colonnade that was found buried in an old laurel hedge on the property and restored.
Persons associated with the garden include Percy Smith family (former owners, 1922-1994); Craig Kiest, ASLA (landscape architect, 1997-1999); Dave Sexton (gardener, 1999-present)
