Hedgleigh Spring (Swarthmore, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Delaware County -- Swarthmore
General:
"The 40 acre property was purchased in February 29, 1883 by Erza Townsend Cresson. He named the property Hedgleigh after the after the two long osage orange hedgerows." -memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting horticulturist / Garden Design.
"Today, the two acre garden is the unique product of family stewardship for over 100 years. The garden's design and older specimens for mostly date from between 1920 and 1950, while the plant collection has been greatly expanded within this framework since 1970. The house sits in a sweeping lawn surrounded by ancient oaks and black gum under planted with mature azaleas and dogwoods planted in 1948, along with the spring house, dating from the early 1800's. The central flower garden of roses and perennials contains over 100 feet of flower borders backed by a unique crescent shaped white picket fence,built in 1954." - Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
A combination of stone retaining walls, grade changes and shrub plantings divide the property into intimate spaces and microclimates which include woodland gardens, a small pond, a creek with a waterfall, a vegetable garden and a lowland perennial meadow. The diverse plant collection provides bloom throughout the year. May is especially interesting for its variety of plants, particularly in the woodlands area." -Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
"The flower garden of perennials and roses is most spectacular in early June. Other areas reach their peak at different times, with a remarkable resurgence of bloom in September. A brick patio behind the house is furnished with exotic potted plants." -Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
"Charles Cresson is a garden designer, award winning author, nationally known lecturer and avid gardener. Before returning to rejuvenate the garden at Hedgleigh Spring, he attend the University of Vermont, University of Bath in England and worked for the Royal Horticultural Society. After working for W. Atlee Burpee Co., he authored 3 books: Charles Cresson on the American Flower Garden, Ornamental Trees, and Rock Gardening. As the garden consultant, he has helped many avid gardeners develop their own gardens. -Memo from Charles O. Cresson, Consulting Horticulturist / Garden Design.
Persons associated with the property include: George W. Casey (architect in 1910); Furness, Evans & Company (Architectural firm that George W. Casey worked for in 1910); Charles O. Cresson (horticulturist and author); Erza Townsend Cresson (former owner from 1883 to ?); William James Cresson, Sr. (former owner form 1909 to 1959).

Place:
Reed and Stacey Dillon Residence (Lawrence, Kansas)
United States of America -- Kansas -- Douglas -- Lawrence
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
The gardens were designed for the five acre site chosen by the landscape architect (also the owner) before the contemporary Tuscan style house was built in 1998, and nearly all of the mature native black locust, Osage orange and elm trees were left in place. Chosen for its rolling hills with lower elevations protected from the wind, the gardens include a formal courtyard, a nine-square fruit orchard screened by blue spruce, a formal parterre garden with a rustic pergola made of Osage orange limbs, a more extensive border garden surrounding a large fountain, a rustic treehouse also built from Osage orange limbs, a stream bed with a water garden, and a swimming pool garden. Across the stream there is a meadow planted with swaths of native wildflowers, grass and trees. The native limestone walkways and steps have creeping and culinary thyme planted in the cracks to soften the look of the new stones and to add fragrance. There is a low dry stone wall in the meadow that was built to stage a son's wedding on the property.
Many garden features are antique or unique, collected by the owners for themselves or for clients. The large fountain is set in an antique iron clamshell, the cast iron containers in the courtyard planted with colorful annuals and the ornate wrought iron gates are antiques, and there is a faux bois patio table and chairs from the 1930s. The waterfall that feeds the swimming pool, installed in 2007, cascades over the large cast iron lid from an industrial autoclave once used for curing concrete. The stream bed on the property was dry but was engineered to carry water from a pond adjacent to the property. The sounds of the water features unify each part of the garden, according to the owners.
The gardens are planted to provide blooms for nine months of the year, starting with swaths of daffodils and Spanish bluebells in the meadow and blue and white hyacinths in the fruit orchard's raised beds. Dogwoods, azaleas, rhododendrons, peonies, magnolias and fruit trees bloom in spring, with clematis, roses, oriental and day lilies, and hyacinths following in summer, and the changing leaves on the trees in autumn. Water gardens in the stream bed include yellow flag iris and mysotis and in the large fountain lotuses, water lilies and water hyacinths.
Persons associated with the garden include Reed Dillon (landscape architect, 1998- ); Kurt C. Aichler (architect, 1995-1998).
