Summary:
The Ken Druse Garden Photography Collection contains approximately 45,000 film transparency and 35mm slide images, dating from 1978 to 2005, of gardens, garden features, and flora photographed by garden writer and photographer Ken Druse. The photographic images document numerous private and public gardens throughout the United States and a few in Canada. Many have appeared in Druse's own books and articles as well as those by other writers. Approximately half of the collection is arranged according to specific garden, the other half by garden feature. A small portion of the collection consists of slide lectures given by Druse. Some images are identified with general captions and dates. Images documenting specific gardens are sometimes accompanied by handwritten notes, garden descriptions, and articles. Annotations appearing on certain images indicate the publication in which they appeared. The collection includes 'outtakes' or bracketed images that give insight into Druse's photo shooting process.

Lower Faulkner (Brookline, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Brookline
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes information sheet, garden plan and slide list.
General:
"Behind the house is a conventional garden, enriched by three variously shaped pools, each with a fountain. A connecting path leads to a New England version of a Japanese stroll garden. From an overgrown wooded area a magnificent rock of conglomerate stone, commonly known as Roxbury pudding stone was uncovered. A pool was built underneath it and water is circulated to run over the rock. Several Japanese touches were incorporated: black sea washed stones under a dogwood, moss, a whimsical dragon 17 feet long made of climbing hydrangea, Japanese lanterns, a splendid stand of Hinoki cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana'), unusual azaleas, hosta and grasses. The garden received the Albert Cameron Burrage Gold medal in 1984 from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society."

Cunningham Garden (Brookline, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Brookline
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, an abbreviated garden plan, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This garden site of 15,000 square feet, on a property of 31,300 square feet, flourished between 1920 and 1960. A 1945-46 gold medal winner from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the garden and its design reflected its owner/designer's determination to have sun for spring flowers. This resulted in an attractive series of crescent-shaped beds of graduated sizes running down the center of a formal grass terrace. This position, which satisfied the design-conscious eye of the perfectionist, as well as the demand of tulips for sunlight, produced an unexpected splash of color in a lovely, secluded, lived-in garden fitted into a hillside. Evergreen and flowering trees, stone walls, and diagonal trellising served to screen out all signs of neighbors. The garden also contained an herb garden with heart-shaped beds outlined in box and an armillary sphere in the center, a sun-heated pit, a greenhouse, and a cutting garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Dr. J. R. Taylor (former owner, 1909-1917); Dr. John Cunningham (former owner, 1917-1972); Theresa Ingersoll Cunningham (Mrs. John) (former owner and landscape designer, 1917-1972); and Thomas M. James (architect, 1909).

Brattle Street Garden (Cambridge, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Cambridge
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes garden plans and a planting list.
General:
This two-thirds of an acre urban garden encloses an 1876 house with a sunken garden between the house and street, and a back garden comprising lawn, an undulating border, a woodlands garden and a carriage house. The gardens have developed over the last 30 years, during which time the trees and evergreen hedges have matured and soared in height, especially those bordering the driveway that runs the length of the property from the street to the carriage house. Low stones walls enclose the sunken garden in front of the house and the mixed border in back, with a tall wooden fence marking off the sunken garden. The borders are planted densely and for sequential bloom so the garden is filled with color from April to October. Numerous sculptures are placed around the property, including unique sculptural benches. The owner, who is an architect, describes this garden as a place to move and to grow interesting specimen plants rather than as a place for relaxation.
The mature evergreen hedge bordering the driveway has a mix of cedar and cypress that replaced hornbeams destroyed in a fire. The incense cedar is sheared to contrast with the other trees, and in other areas trees have been shaped to their location, such as the weeping copper beech that frames a fountain made from a very large cypress wood barrel and a rusted copper pipe in the back garden. A path of stepping stones leads into the woodland garden where shade-loving perennials are the understory, rhododendrons form the middle story and mature evergreen and deciduous trees complete the design. A camellia shrub grown at the edge of the woodland garden is an unusual survivor in the New England climate.
Brattle Street Garden has been awarded two gold medal prizes for Notable Gardens and Outstanding Plant Material from The Massachusetts Horticultural Society. Also the gardens have been open for garden tours in Cambridge.
Persons associated with the garden include: William Bartlett (former owner, 1876-1906); Horace Bright (former owner, 1906-1984); Joanne Holtje (garden design and maintenance, 2003-present); Senta Barton (garden design and maintenance, 2003-present); Ann Sinclair (garden design and maintenance, 2001-2004); Michael Green (sculptor).

Place:
Tall Pines (Dover, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Norfolk County -- Dover
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan.
General:
This garden site encompasses 26 acres set in a pine forest. Its owners, who began developing the garden in the 1960s, and who have done all of their own design work, have tried to keep the elements of a natural landscape--a sloping field with a few rhododendrons, andromeda, and junipers sloping down to an old stone wall with a pond beyond. There are dogwoods, redbuds, and birch on the perimeter. A small wildflower garden lies next to a garden pool built by the owners. Elsewhere on the property can be found an outdoor theater, while an allee of shadbush (Amelanchier) lines part of the front driveway. The garden received a 1992 Visiting Garden Silver Medal Award from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.
Persons associated with the garden include: I. W. Colburn (architect, 1959).

Place:
Nindethana (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and garden plan.
General:
The present owners purchased seven acres of land bordering native cranberry bogs under cultivation. The property was layered with clay and surrounded on two sides by a hardwood forest (unique on Nantucket). After completing the house construction, the owners surrounded the rear with an 8 foot deep pond landscaped with native bayberry and pine; and stocked the pond with koi. A 100x100 foot sunken garden with croquet court exists off the guest wing. This garden is surrounded by a wood lattice fence ending in an arched arbor walk entered through four moongates. Roses, perennials, annuals, and sculpted arborvitae and boxwood fill the borders and cover the fencing. A privet maze surrounds a Grandiflora magnolia outside the garden and leads to a swimming pool area. Terraces in random cut bluestone surround a dark granite pool. A native fern forest grows beneath tupelos in the nearby wetlands. The garden won the Hunnewell gold medal from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society for outstanding design on an estate over seven acres in 1993.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Robert (former owners, 1983-2000); Hoen Meier (landscape designer, 1983-1988); Edward Knowles (architect, 1983-1990); Leonard Campanale (gardener/designer, 1988-2003); and Larry Schuck (builder of arbor and fence).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a photocopy of the 1931 Pattee-Peters landscape design, and photocopies of descriptions of the garden from garden tour programs.
General:
This site, which totals 16 acres, has been the home of the Perkins family since 1930. The house, however, was built in 1815, and the stone-walled path through the meadow is the last cow lane or cow path in Westwood. Set behind the house are perennial gardens designed by Elizabeth Greenleaf Pattee and Constance E. Peters in 1931 and bordered with boxwood taken from the Adams House in Quincy. An espaliered yew covers a wall on the back of the house, while lilacs separate the perennial garden from the less formal vegetable, herb, and cutting gardens near the kitchen. A compost area is conveniently located nearby. The dominant color of the garden changes throughout the seasons owing to the careful choice of perennials and the addition of annuals. Fences separate and define the maintained areas near the house from the old apple and pear orchard and fields beyond. The garden received a Massachusetts Horticultural Society Gold Medal in 1967.
Persons associated with the garden include: Major and Mrs. Eaton Whiting (former owners, before 1881); J. E. Whiting (former owner); Anna M. Colburn (former owner); Marcus L. Haye (former owner, 1881-1930); James H. Perkins, II (former owner, 1930-1980); Elizabeth Greenleaf Pattee (landscape architect, 1931); and Constance E. Peters (landscape architect, 1931).

This 11-acre site includes four acres of gardens and seven acres of woods. Designed by Thomas Wirth Associates, the garden comprises a circular bluestone terrace connecting the swimming pool (lower level) and the greenhouse, pond and waterfall (upper level) across the width of the house. To the rear is an undulating meadow, which replaced an earlier flat lawn area. Views open up across this meadow to the woods. A "pagan" garden is sited in a depression with water-loving plants on the eastern wooded edge. A gazebo leads to a clearing with woodland plantings on the southern edge. Woodland paths connect these spaces. The plant material is varied, interesting, unusual, and beautifully maintained. A cutting garden fits in between the swimming pool and the front lawn. This garden received the Massachusetts Horticultural Society's Visiting Garden Gold Medal Award for 1992 and an Honorable Mention from the 1994 Landscape Architecture Magazine Residential Design jury.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Thomas Wirth (landscape architect, 1990-1993); John Knight (landscape architect, 1990-1993); Thomas Wirth Associates (landscape architects, 1990-1993); Willowbrook Landscaping (landscape contractors); and O'Hara & Griffin Ltd.
