Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a write-up of the property and photocopies of articles.
Varying Form:
Sampson Beasley Garden.
General:
Ample rainfall and favorable growing conditions are evident in the lush 5 to 7-acre garden that features naturalistic plantings of shrubs, perennials and annuals that blend into the woodlands of native Pacific Madrone and cedar trees. There are many garden rooms with distinctive and whimsical features, including a frog grotto, a walkway made of the bottoms of recycled glass bottles, a blue garden of shiny orbs, and a more conventional walkway lined with peonies, beds with late-blooming red perennials, a rose and yew garden, fish pond, and a shade garden planted in hostas, ferns and hydrangeas. Native rocks are placed strategically in garden beds and used in an alpine rock wall. When the garden was created with landscape designer Michael Schultz plants of varying shapes were selected to create complex visual patterns, and located where the growing conditions would be favorable to the species.
Landscape designer Michael Schultz creates gardens that feature varying textures and colors of plant material, and innovative uses of hardscape elements.
Persons associated with the garden include Dave Green (previous owner, 1970-1980); Michael Schultz (landscape designer); Cynthia Woodyard (landscape designer).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Atwater Garden (Little Compton, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Little Compton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and site plans.
General:
The property is composed of three lots measuring approximately 5 acres each, all bounded by stone walls, and is a combination of woodlands, marshland, areas for cultivation and seaside views. The land was part of a dairy farm until 1945, and the house (built in 1963-64 at the end of a long driveway) was the farm's old cart track. In 1964, 1969, and 1970 Lloyd Lawton designed rock gardens on the west and southeastern sides of the house. The gardens contain several rare plants as well as collections of rhododendrons, azaleas, Japanese maples, hellebores, grasses, groundcovers, ferns, epimediums, and rock garden plants. North of the house, an old stone wall is lined with a perennial border that blooms from early spring to late fall. Beyond the wall stands a row of English Holly (Molly Stevens) which borders an extensive vegetable garden, followed by American Hollies. On the west side of the house just past the rock garden, a Katsura tree shades a terrace next to a bed of mixed plantings including trees, shrubs, grasses, groundcovers, perennials, and bulbs. Further west, a path splits two naturalistic beds featuring native white viscosum azaleas under planted with bulbs and groundcovers. On the east side of the house a purple Beech towers over rhododendron beds including rhododendron "Kozan." Also on the east side is an informal row of tightly pruned Leyland Cypress. Two beds to the southeast and southwest of the front of the house feature mixed plantings in graduated heights composed of trees, shrubs, perennials, and groundcovers.
Persons associated with the garden include Lloyd Lawton (landscape designer, 1964, 1969, 1970).

Scope and Contents:
Copies of original photographs are included in file.

The folder includes a work sheet, garden plans, photo copies of articles, nursery invoices, correspondence, and booklet on Craig family and Candoro Marble Company.
General:
Charles I. Barber, of Barber and McMurry, designed the house in 1926 for Mr. John J. Craig, III., one of the owners of Candoro Marble Company. Landscape architect Charles F. Lester was hired to mold the surrounding eighty acres to complement the strongly Italianate house. Lester laid out green terraces on a slope between the north front of the house and a man-made lake below and created a large formal garden to the west. Developers purchased the property in 1971, with the intent of demolishing the residence and constructing a subdivision. The house and several acres, however, were preserved with the remaining being developed into the Westlands and Westchase condominiums and Craigland subdivision. The current owners of the existing property have restored and renovated the gardens and remaining two acres of property, which combine formal and naturalistic elements. In 1998, a wall was added to define the north side of the formal garden, which features ponds and stone benches original to the property, concrete sculptures, boxwoods, and espaliered "Smoothee" apple trees. To the east of the house is a large lawn surrounded by woods of mature dogwoods, maples, tulip poplars, magnolias, hackberries, walnuts, oaks, and hemlocks. A cottage garden is kept behind the garage. The owners planted an herb garden in large clay pots just outside the kitchen door.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owners, 1926-1945); Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owner, 1945-1971); Mrs. and Mrs. Calvin Walter (former owners, 1971-1992); Charles F. Lester (landscape architect, 1926); Charles I. Barber (architect, 1926); Albert Milani (marble sculpture, 1926); Mary Spengler (garden designer, 1992-1998); Rosemary Verey (garden consultant, 1995); and Peter Thevenot (plant supplier, 1998).

United States of America -- North Carolina -- Buncombe County -- Asheville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet and feature plans.
General:
This garden is located in a suburb of Asheville at 2,200 feet altitude. It was designed and built simultaniously with the construction of the 5,000 square foot French Chateau-style house. The garden is located across the width of the rear of the house. A large waterfall and "stream" run the breadth of the house; and are visible from the many terraces of the property. Most of the flowers are white and pale pink. There are urns and toppled jardinieres with flowers flowing from them. A vegetable garden was added in 1999 on the northwest portion of the lawn with decorative fencing. This vegetable garden is protected from the deer population of the area. There are three levels of the back lawn. They include the terrace areas, a waterfall area, and a higher lawn with tall trees to provide privacy in the rear. The front of the house looks down a significant slope to the street with naturalistic plantings among the trees. Immaculately maintained by the owners, the gardens exude a "Continental flavor."
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Architectural Accents (1985-1986); Richard Thornton, RA (1985); Charles E. Godfrey, Jr. (landscape, 1986); April Carder (landscape, 1986); and Kirk Alexander (landscape plan, 1987).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet with additional information about individuals associated with the garden, site plans, a copy of Donald Culross Peattie's booklet about the site, and copies of brochures and newspaper articles.
General:
Pearson's Falls is a 267-acre tract of land that the Tryon Garden Club of Tryon, NC, rescued from development in 1931. The falls were discovered by Charles William Pearson, a young engineer searching for a route for the Southern Railway in 1876. He purchased the land and it remained in the Pearson family until it was bought by the Tryon Garden Club. It is maintained today by a caretaker and volunteers from the club. Within the tract a wild flower garden and preserve are maintained. It is located in an unusual climatic area in the Blue Ridge Mountains called the "Isothermal Belt," where the winters are lighter and the summers longer, providing unusual growth possibilities. Located on Colt Creek just before it joins the Pacolet River, the garden preserve has over 200 species of wild flowers growing in the granite rocks and loamy soil along the creek. The garden walk follows the creek up to the 90-foot falls. There are blooms except in deepest snow. The property, which is open to the public for a small fee, is truly one of the gems of preservation of a natural garden and provides significant opportunities for study and wild flower identification.
Persons and organizations associated with the site include: Charles William Pearson (former owner, 1876-1903); Giles Pearson (former owner, 1903-1931); Donald Culross Peattie (naturalist and author); Oliver M. Freeman (botanist); and the Tryon Garden Club (owners and gardeners, 1931 to date).

Place:
Marsh Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet, site plan, narrative description, and copy of aerial photograph.
General:
The original woody site features areas of vinca and grass sloping down into a slight dale, then rises to the entrance of a porch filled with potted plants. The original rose garden contained tea roses, which later became a white and white garden, and then changed to the present rose garden. The current rose garden contains boxwood hedges in the shape of an "X" and standard roses. The landscape has continued to evolve since the 1980s. Trees were added to the front and brick work was added to define the curved surfaces. The owners created another entrance to the backyard through the greenhouse and court area. In the rear, a fence was removed and a much larger area became available to cultivate. An upper level patio with a water fountain was created--increasing the area of planting substantially. Pots or container gardening was adopted and elaborated over many years with variety and seasonal blooming. The most recent addition in permanent plantings is a camellia garden at the west end of the swimming pool area. Flowering fruit trees, spirea, cherry laurel, Japanese maple, tulip magnolias and magnolias are integrated into the naturalistic setting.
People associated with this property include: Asher B. Kahn (former owner, 1938-1949); John O'Boyle (former owner, 1949-1972); Elizabeth Ferguson (former owner, 1972-1980); Howard Meyer (architect, 1937); Joe Lambert (landscape architect, ca. 1940-1950); Herman Bliss (landscape architect, 1980); and Charlene Marsh (rose garden designer, 1995).

Neels Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and articles.
General:
Established in 1974, this Highland Park garden was modeled after an eighteenth-century English cottage garden. A longtime landscaper and garden designer in Dallas, the Carl Neels transformed the small flat 60 by 129 foot plot beginning with no trace of a garden into a lush landscape offering colorful displays in every season. The addition of two feet to the soil level at one corner, and building steps up to an elliptical lawn gave greater dimension to the landscape, and the appearance of a larger garden was achieved by creating sight lines which run diagonally from corner to corner. Features include a parterre, a pond, a cloister, and a woodland area, as well as various focal points provided by garden sculptures and outdoor furniture. In addition to creating a serene retreat in the naturalistic garden rooms at the back of the residence, the owner maintains the beds at the front of the property and public easements around his home, offering lovely garden views to members of the local community to enjoy as they pass by on their daily activities.
Maximizing the respite from the heat of summer, the garden is design to be enjoyed particularly in winter. It features over twenty varieties of arborvitae, and chamaecyparis, Japanese maple, juniper, cedars and over fifteen other evergreens serve as a year-round backdrop and provide winter interest. Plantings such as violets, lavender, stock, cyclamen, and white heath offer additional color in cooler months. In summer impatiens and begonia thrive in the regions of the garden dominated by wet soil, and in drier parts of the garden marigolds, periwinkles, salvia, ageratum and blue haze provide quick carpets of color. The owner has a particular fondness for perennials and has found lythrums, Coreopsis verticillata, coneflowers, peachleaf bellflower, and Achillea ptarmica to consistently perform well in the Texan summer.
Persons associated with the garden include: Emmy Hill (former owner, 1952-1984); Carl Neels (landscape designer, 1974-present; and owner,1984- present).

Glen Echo -- Shimizu Garden

Archival materials
Place:
Shimizu Garden (Glen Echo, Maryland)
United States of America -- Maryland -- Montgomery County -- Glen Echo
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and other information.
General:
The Shimizu Garden, on a quarter-acre lot, was started in 1986 when 4-inch black plastic drainage pipes were laid in heavy clay soil to solve problems of drainage and flooding. The soil was amended and graded into distinct areas of lawn and low mixed borders in front of the house, a meditation garden with a three-tiered fountain that leads to a side terraced garden, a moss garden in deep shade, and a pool and waterfall bordered by a rock garden and patio behind the house. Mixed plantings of ornamental trees, shrubs, ferns, perennials, and colorful annuals are punctuated with garden sculptures.
The picket fence and low border across the front of the property permit passersby to view the front, meditation and terraced gardens. The rest of the property is bordered by six-foot tall board fences with lattice tops, which also were installed by the adjoining neighbors. The owners planted several trees on a neighbor's property for additional shade and privacy.
Mature Norway spruce trees that were on the property provide shade, but lower branches were removed from one tree so the plants beneath receive filtered sun. The roots in the perennial beds are pruned periodically to reduce competition. An irrigation system is used during dry spells in the early morning to discourage slug infestation.
The 20-by-12 foot pool was excavated first, then the soil was used to build a slope for the six-foot drop of the waterfall. Rocks were placed to vary the sound of the moving water, which originates in a naturalistic creek at the top of the feature. Many plants were incorporated into the setting. A pool pump is concealed to muffle its sounds, as the water feature reduces the sound of planes flying overhead.
The Shimizu garden was certified as a Wildlife Habitat Garden by the National Wildlife Federation in 1993.
