Place:
Rochambeau House (Providence, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Providence County -- Providence
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of garden designs with planting plans, black and white photographs of the garden, black and white and color photocopies of images of the garden and Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, photocopies of articles about the house and garden, an unpublished 1990 paper by Lisa Hartjen entitled "The Gardens of 84 Prospect Street," notes on the garden by Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, a photocopy of Marjorie Sewell Cautley's 1937 consultant report, and correspondence and other information relating to the garden and Mary Elizabeth Sharpe.
General:
Situated on an irregular two-thirds acre lot, this garden's development began in 1929 under the supervision of its owner, Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, and continued over a period of 55 years. It is now in full maturity. Following Mrs. Sharpe's death in 1985, the property passed to Brown University, where it is now the home of the French Studies and Hispanic Studies departments. It was renamed Rochambeau House for Jean de Vimeu, Comte de Rochambeau, Maréchal de France and commandant of French forces encamped at Providence during the American Revolution. Although some features have changed and trees have been replaced, the design concept still remains one of a French-style garden composed of plants chosen for year-round green interest. Features include a formal, boxwood-edged lawn, paved teraces, stone-paved courts, stone steps and ornaments, paths of diamond pavers, espaliers on house walls, and spring flowering trees surrounding a handsome house. The long, narrow sequence of the west garden descending from formal to naturalized areas and woodland is a highlight.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Mary Elizabeth Sharpe (former owner and landscape designer, 1929-1985); Henry Dexter Sharpe (former owner, 1929-?); Arthur Rice (architect, 1929); Marian Cruger Coffin (landscape architect, 1934); Marjorie Sewell Cautley (landscape architect, 1937); Ralph E.

Archival materials
Place:
MacGregor Gardens (Fairview, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Erie -- Fairview
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheetsand additional images.
General:
Prior to 1978 the 1.7 acre wedge shaped parcel was primarily woodlands on a hillside, part of an earlier farm and orchard, with two ridges and a small creek. One ridge was left as found, with matures trees: oak, maple, tulip poplar, wild cherry and hemlock plus ferns and wild roses. By 1980 the house had been built on a leveled platform with only a few willow trees left on that site. Conifers were planted first, including Austrian pine, hemlock, larch, arborvitae and juniper, with English ivy, pachysandra, day lilies, Shasta daisies, Japanese iris and hydrangea transplanted from a previous home's garden. Deciduous trees were planted next including fruit trees, white birch, Japanese maples and crab apples, and crown vetch was planted as a ground cover to hold the slopes and provide playing fields for children. In 1995 the vetch was replaced with ornamental gardens of perennials, shrubs and bulbs with rocks and winding paths strategically placed on the slopes.
Since the gardens climb the hillside to the woodlands a hand-built arbor was added in 1998 to act as a gateway between the cultivated and naturalized areas. Plants in the cultivated gardens include many hosta varieties, azaleas, rhododendron, rose of Sharon and peonies; vines include trumpet vine, clematis and wisteria; and bulbs include daffodils, tulips, iris, crocuses and snowdrops. There are small gardens at the front and back doors of the house and outside the garage that include roses, climbing roses, calla lilies, junipers, chrysanthemums, holly and pieris Japonica. Other features include gazing globes, a woodlands fort, birdhouses and a cluster of painted rocks for a fairy garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Gary Johnston (garden design).

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).

Hyland-Schutz Garden (West Hartford, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Hartford County -- West Hartford
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, site plans, planting lists, a detailed history of the property, and extensive documentation of garden ornamentation and furniture.
General:
The Hyland-Schutz Garden was originally designed by architect Charles Adams Platt in 1908 to complement the home he designed in 1907 for the Hartford, Connecticut businessman, Robert H. Schutz. Designed with a focus upon geometry and proportion, the Georgian brick house is reminiscent of colonial Tidewater mansions in Virginia. Reflecting Platt's belief that a building should be well connected to its site, the geometry of the home is mirrored in the formal rectilinear beds of the corresponding garden design.
The garden design offers a contrast between the natural area to the south with undulating borders, and the formal hedged garden to the west with a stately columned loggia overlooking it. The original formal garden was a square split into four quadrants, each bordered in Japanese barberry hedges. The formal quadrants were replaced during a 1964 renovation which included the construction of a garage that now serves as the northern border of the west garden. At that time the property was owned by the son of the original owner, architect Robert H. Schutz Jr., who designed the garage and garden renovations. In 2009 a brick-walled garden room was added to the east of the house, built by the current owner to commemorate of his 60th birthday.
Many of the plants listed in the original design still exist, though the current owners have also added numerous plants in every section of the property since its purchase in 2003. The west garden, as designed by Robert Schutz Jr., now features a lawn enclosed by flowerbeds and boxwood hedges. The east walled garden, built of salvaged bricks from various historic sites, includes Alyce boxwood which surrounds a pair of flowering callery pear trees, and four dwarf Albert spruce that anchor the corners.
The Notable Trees Committee of the Connecticut Botanical Society has identified several trees worthy of note at the Hyland-Schutz property, though many of the trees were badly damaged during a severe snowstorm in October 2011. Other special specimens include a stand of heirloom lilacs transplanted in the early 1900's from the home of the original owners' parents. Climbing hydrangeas on the south façade flank the loggia and embellish the north brick wall at the east end of the house. Purple wisteria planted in 1908 festoons the west loggia and white wisteria adorns the garage.
As a setting for social occasions, a Garden Club of Hartford member and president was married in the formal garden in 1968 and the property has been included consistently in the annual House and Garden Tour sponsored by the Hartford Art School Auxiliary. The current owners have used the garden as a setting to entertain numerous museum trustees, artists and collectors; and the house has been owned by two museum directors, including a former director of the Wadsworth Athenaeum and a director of the New Britain Museum of American Art.
This garden was originally documented as part of a 1992 donation to the Archives of American Gardens. At that time it was listed as the Schutz Garden, included in the Garden Club of America's Slide Library of Notable American Parks and Gardens. An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012.
Persons associated with the property include: Robert H. Schutz (former owner, 1907-1948); Robert H. Schutz, Jr. (former owner, 1948-1991, architect, ca. 1949); University of Hartford (former owner, 1992-1994); Wilson W. Jr. & Jacqueline A. Wyatt (former owners, 1994-1995); Michael T. & Mary M. Dorsey (former owners, 1995-1997); Peter C. & Mary Lynn Sutton (former owners, 1997-2003); Charles Adams Platt (architect, 1907-1908); Katharine M. Stevenson (landscape designer, 1949); Jacqueline Canning-Malley (landscape designer, dates unknown);

United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- Locust Valley
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, site plans (one with a plant list), photocopies of an article about the garden, and additional information.
General:
Lying on 3.2 acres adjacent to a marsh and creek, this site is highlighted by a Japanese-influenced 40' x 80' iris garden that also includes features of a cottage garden in keeping with its location by a low, rambling house. Designed in the early 1980s by Nancy B. Taylor of the landscape architecture firm Innocenti & Webel, the garden replaced what was formerly an asphalt driveway. Running the length of the garden are a dry riverbed and path, accented by two small bridges. Although there is no actual water in the garden, the use of different plants helps to simulate that effect. In addition to this garden, the site includes more natural areas with marsh and water views, as well as a swimming pool and herb garden.
Persons and firms associated with the property include Nancy B. Taylor (landscape architect, 1981); Mr. and Mrs. C. Gachot (former owners, 1956-1981); and Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1981).

Place:
Red Mill Farm (Washington, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield County -- Washington
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet with site plan, two summaries of interviews and one narrative reminiscence about the site and its history, a chronology of the history of the sawmill located on the site, photocopied narratives of the sawmill's history, copies of photographs of the site in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, and photocopies of related correspondence.
General:
This 22-acre garden site consists of a series of informal gardens and natural areas in a rural setting. Development of the current garden dates only to 1991, but previous owners of the property contributed significantly to its overall design and plantings and to the preservation of the ca. 1840 farmhouse and the historic red sawmill that gives the property its name. Today, intimate spaces on changing levels around the house and conservatory, paved with local granite, feature tropical and half-hardy container plants and vines along with roses and perennials. Fieldstone steps and walls delineate specific areas. A curving sunny border below the house is backed by a stone wall topped with a picket fence. Drifts of spring bulbs are planted under trees, while sweeping lawns drop to the sawmill area, where native plants, wildflowers, and a wet garden border the millpond and waterways. To the southeast ferns outline a rustic grape arbor. A vista north of the house leads through the circle garden enclosed by mature evergreens to a shady glen.
Persons associated with the garden include: Captain Gideon Hollister, II (former owner, 1750-1803); Gideon Hollister (former owner, 1803-1844); Almon D. Galpin (former owner, 1844-1876); Edward Wallace Fenn (former owner, 1876-1926); Clarence L. Richmond (former owner, 1926-1936); Bonnell W. Clark (former owner, 1936-1952); Sidney and Beatrice Hessel (former owners, 1952-1991); Billie Haas (garden designer, 1953); Steve Solley (historical advisor, 1993); Charles Boucher (contractor, 1993); Jim Kriker (millwright, 1993); Emilio Sinapoli (stonemason, 1993 to date); and Christine (Tina) Burlingham Dodge (landscape designer and horticulturist, 1993 to date).
