United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans with plant names, copies of articles about the garden, and additional information provided by the garden owner.
General:
First planted in 1984, this small (1/3 acre), friendly garden is located on a winding little street in the midst of the many manicured and pristine gardens and lawns of University Park, directly across from the Dallas Country Club. It complements the site's Cape Cod-Norman French hybrid gray-shingled cottage with wide covered front porch, grey shingles, and blue shutters. Taking advantage of the east exposure in order to combat the wilting heat of Dallas summers, the design provides color year-round and features casual flower beds with a variety of heights, textures, and colors. The garden is famous for its spectacular display of blue hydrangeas, specimen trees, flowering trees, bulbs, perennials, annuals, and what its owner calls "old-fashioned flowers." Two large flower beds anchor the corners of the front yard. The arbor-covered back porch enables the owners and their guests to enjoy looking out on a small circular lawn and an adorable garden house. It reflects the encouragement that legendary gardener Rosemary Verey gave the owner during her two visits to the garden to plant more flowering vines for "vertical color."
Persons associated with the site include Rodger Burson (architect); Rosa Finsley (landscape architect); John Morelock (plantsman); Carl Neels (landscape architect and plantsman, 1990 to date); and Roberto Gonzalez (gardener, 1996 to date).

Serendipity (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of the shell mosaic interior of the grotto.
General:
The four-acre property described as a cool retreat in Dallas is shaded by a canopy of old native cedar elm trees and has a stone grotto built into an artificial hillside that was designed to add instant age. The new property, owned since 1982, has a stone circle fire pit overlooking Bachman Creek, a terraced rose and herb garden with gravel paths behind an ornamental iron gate, parterre gardens, a chicken coop, a dog kennel with a courtyard, a children's play yard and playhouse, and a rectangular swimming pool surrounded by another pool for koi. Other outbuildings include a cabana next to the pool, a dual purpose guest house and gym, and a greenhouse. The grotto is constructed of boulder outcroppings sheathed in fig vines with an elaborate shell mosaic in the interior and is used for dining. Along the driveway to the house there are dense plantings of mature trees, lawns and naturalized areas. Closer in the manicured lawns are divided by stone walkways and crossed by stepping stones. Color is provided by magnolias, azaleas, a wisteria trained up the house's exterior iron staircase, roses, tall bearded iris, jasmine and verbena. Seasonal plantings in the parterres and in urns on the bluestone terrace include pansies, begonias, caladium, pintas, periwinkle, daffodils and tulips. Low dry stone walls are used to delineate the different areas of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Paul Fields (landscape architect, 2008); Susan Grantham (landscape architect, 2008); Rosa Finsley (landscape architect, 2014); Matt Stevens of Texas Garden Services (landscape design, 2014); Connie Chantillis (shell mosaic artist, 2008); Watkins Ornamental Iron (fencing and gates, 2005).

Place:
Grelen (Orange, Va.)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Orange County -- Orange
Scope and Contents:
This folder includes plans, plant list for herb garden, tree inventory, plant list, garden description and worksheet done by GCA researcher Patricia M. Dunnington.
General:
"The land around the main house includes approximately fifteen acres of naturally and formally planned landscape. Naturalized areas feature a vast variety of ornamental and native Virginia trees and shrubs. Grelen features two planned gardens. The formal garden covers approximately two acres and is a four-level walled sunken garden. It is located to the west of the main house and can be approached through the mall-- a boxwood and hemlock tree lined lawn approximately 75 yards long (the garden is half way down the mall) - or from a blue stone walk leading from the back terrace. The top level is a tripartite formal space with brick walks leading to raised corner overlooks. The focal point is a brick paved overlook located on a central axis that runs through the garden and into the vista beyond. To either side of this overlook are brick stairways that lead to the lower levels."
"The second level of this garden features eight perennial beds, while the third and fourth levels are grassed. Opposite the garden entrance off the mall is a boxwood-lined mew with a millstone as the focal point. Specimen trees, including a Cedars of Lebanon, a Blue Atlas Cedar and a Deodora Cedar further accentuate this transept."
"The kitchen garden, a two-level 52' by 52' space on the east end of the house, is in line with the back terrace and the walk to the formal garden. This garden has a center circular bed surrounded by four corner sections and is divided into two levels by a stone retaining wall."
"Beyond the formally constructed garden, vistas were created by plantings of large hardwood trees. This technique was used on the mall, on the axis beyond the formal garden, and on the main drive up to the house. The front drive is bordered by tulip poplar trees and the edges of the front lawns are defined by the white pine trees. The mall uses boxwood for the vista close to the house, and then hemlock trees lead the eye on out toward the neighboring hillside. As one stands at the overlook in the formal gardens and faces cow pastures, a line of trees far beyond the fenced area carries the theme of cultivated grounds past the manicured lawns."
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Will R. Gregg, Jr. (former owners, 1934-1990); Arthur Asahel Shurcliff (landscape architect, 1936-1940); John James (horticulturist in 1996); and Dan Gregg (nurseryman).
