Place:
Pineview (Peterborough, New Hampshire)
United States of America -- New Hampshire -- Hillsborough County -- Peterborough
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and a detailed description of the garden with plan. The garden, which is on a challenging site, is noted for the variety, beauty, and lushness of its plantings, as well as its use of design features to complement both the natural environment and the architectural style of the house and adjacent structures.
General:
This garden actually consists of several individual gardens on a site that is quite steep. They represent several styles ranging from formal (near the house) to wild gardens. Several water features and a large perennial garden are included. Many of the garden areas have been designed by Gordon Hayward; the garden has been under development only since 1990. Additional striking features are a 400-foot sycamore allee and a series of semicircle terraces bordered with standard Korean lilacs. The entire effect is in harmony with the early Federal style house and adjacent cottage on the property.
Persons associated with the property include: Robert T. Jackson (former owner, 1911-1948); Esther Jackson (former owner, 1948-1949); Dorothy Jackson Bastille (former owner, 1948-1949); Norman Elmes (former owner, 1949-1954); Katherine Jackson (former owner, 1954-1955); Halfdan Lee (former owner, 1955-?); N. Morton Safford (former owner, ca. 1960s-1970s); Michael and Joanne Donovan (former owners, 1977-1981); Leslie Pitteway (former owner, 1981-?); John and Vanna Nightingale (former owners, ca. 1980s); and Gordon Hayward (landscape architect, 1995 to date).
