"Kinkaku-Ji" Garden (Asheville, North Carolina)
United States of America -- North Carolina -- Buncombe -- Asheville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, garden plans, and photocopies of articles.
General:
Created in 2010, this Asian dry-landscape garden features more than 200 bonsai and overlooks a stone house and woodlands within a one and one-quarter acre hillside property in North Carolina. The owners named their garden after the Temple of the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto, Japan, and installed a pavilion used for entertaining, winter storage of some of the bonsai collections, and for storing gardening supplies. The rectangular garden and adjacent lawn are enclosed by low stone walls where the smaller bonsai containers are displayed, each sitting on a revolving stone to facilitate watering and sun exposure. The surface of the garden is brown crushed gravel, with islands of mondo grass and stonecrop planted with Japanese maples, boxwood, dwarf hostas, rockwork, and two large boulders echoing Tenryuji's boulder arrangement in Kyoto. A statue of the Buddha overlooks a small pond and a Burmese brass gong hangs at the pavilion.
The owners became interested in bonsai and Asian design while living in New York, and have been active in the National Bonsai Friendship Foundation, the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington DC, and the World Bonsai Federation. Two ancient trees in their collection were gifts for service to the federation.
Persons associated with the garden include: Bobby Graniere and Cary Lawson McCall (former owners, 2006-2010); Jim Samsel and Deborah Turner (architects); Mark Hoots (landscaper).

Place:
Holly Pond (Oyster Bay, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- Oyster Bay
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, garden plans, photos of pages from an article about the house and garden, and other information about the garden and its owner.
General:
This garden shows the influence of its owner's trip to Japan in the 1950s in the irregular shape of the pond and use of flat rocks around its rim; the island of planting from which a small waterfall issues; and the recirculating stream which runs from the pond under the holly hedge. The path of irregular flat stones and the round grass shapes in the small pebbled surface were inspired by circles made with moss in Samkoin, Kyoto, Japan. There is also a purification basin. The pool house garden has a dry stream with a stone bridge and at the beginning a small memorial (standing stone) to a child with the image of Jizo, the patron saint of children, women in childbirth, and travelers. Above it are two Korean ancestor figures leading the way to the upper garden, which is filled with different varieties of lilacs.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Ben Thompson (architect and landscape architect, 1954-1955); Shogo J. Myaido (architect, 1970); Louis Parenti (gardener, 1954-1962); Charlie Wenger (gardener, 1963-1978); John Grannis (gardener, 1978 to date); and the Architects Collaborative (architects, 1954-1955).
