Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Pickerel Run (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Milwaukee County -- Milwaukee
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, site plans, and narrative description.
General:
The decorative arts and architecture from 17th century New England served as inspiration for this garden. The site for the garden was prepared in fall of 1981 and built in spring 1982. The layout of the raised geometric beds, gravel paths, and picket fence was modeled after early Colonial designs. The central beds are devoted to herbs. The outer beds hold perennial flowers, similar to those of Colonial New England. By contrast, the garden beds around the house are filled with native plants. A knot garden of green velvet boxwood, inspired by an inlay design on an early 18th century Pennsylvania chest, was added to the kitchen terrace. The beds adjacent to the knot garden, composted only of green and white white, service as a "restful haven under the shade of the the surrounding giant oak trees."
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Aimee Scott Sheets (horticulturist, 2001-?).

General:
In 1970 the owners built their house on two and one-quarter acres in a new subdivision on land that had been agricultural, and their growing family played sports in the yard. In the late 1980s the owners began changing the landscape and house to reflect their interests, especially after studying English gardens at Cambridge University, England, and many visits to the recreated colonial gardens in Williamsburg and Monticello in Virginia. The property was planned and planted as a whole, with formal gardens including a kitchen garden replicating the Taliaferro-Cole garden in Williamsburg with its multi-level picket fence. The garden inside the fence is rectilinear with an armillary sphere in the center watched over by the sculpture "The Dog" by Glenna Goodacre. The straight-edged beds are planted in flowers and vegetables, espaliered apple and pear trees and pollarded linden trees along the fence. This part of the property is conceived on a short axis that ends in an obelisk. The long axis of the plan starts at the street and traverses through an allée of crabapple trees towards a reproduction 18th century statue called "Taste." An outbuilding that is used for storage copies the design of a colonial kitchen. A tennis court is flanked by fruit orchards, and an alpine trough garden leads to the garage.
The paths in the fenced garden are comprised of silica and brick, which along with tall hedges, create a micro-climate in the courtyard that is ten degrees warmer than outside the fence. Thus the planting season starts earlier and last longer, and species such as southern magnolia can be grown. Although most of the construction and garden ornaments reflect the colonial style of this garden there are two Lutyens style benches inside the fenced garden from the Arts & Crafts period, and a brightly painted cottage Windsor chair for resting. Rose pots, painted red, are hoisted on top of poles add height and whimsy to the garden.
To keep the garden looking fresh big plants are replaced, especially with one that have sentimental value to the owners. The garden has been photographed, written about and studied by horticultural groups, and the owners are active in local gardening organizations.
Persons associated with the garden include: Tracy and Maryann Griswold (former owners, 1925-1967); Glenna Goodacre (sculptress, 1999).

Erdenheim Farm (Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery -- Lafayette Hill
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The original tract containing Erdenheim Farm has a long history of ownership dating back to William Penn, the founder of the Pennsylvania colony, but the landscape design and architecture of the house and outbuildings date back to circa 1916-1971 when the property was owned by George D. Widener, Jr. In 2011 and 2012 the current owners restored sunken formal gardens and stone walls designed by Percival Gallagher, lead designer for Olmsted Brothers, with new plantings of iris, herbs and peonies, removing two rows of conifers that obscured the cascade (designed by Jacques Greber) leading from the greenhouse (designed by architect Horace Trumbauer). Gallagher (1874-1934) also designed the roadway system within the farm, the grass tennis court, a woodland walk and original plantings around the main house. Trumbauer (1868-1938) also updated and enlarged the original farmhouse in the Colonial revival style, working from 1916-1932, and designed the main entrance gate, outbuildings including workmen's cottages, three barns and a riding stable and a five arch stone bridge similar to those on English country estates.
Alongside the house there is a new bluestone terrace with cutouts for magnolia trees and a small fountain with planted metal containers. The gardens at the main house were redesigned in 2011 and 2012 and axial views to outlying gardens were reinforced. Ornamental gates designed by Samuel Yellin in the 1920s were attached to new iron fences that surround the house gardens. The current owners restored buildings, landscape and hardscape following the original designs, as stewards of an historical property, and made changes that enhance the sustainability of a working produce and livestock farm. Wildflower meadows were planted with grasses, sedges, rushes, lobelia, rudbeckia, asters and solidago in 2009 to provide habitat for birds and wild life and to reduce erosion into Wissahickon Creek, which traverses the property. An orchard with apple, apricot, peach, pear and plum trees also was planted in 2009. The Trumbauer-designed greenhouse and cold frames now grow micro greens, camellias and orchids. A three-acre organic vegetable garden and berry patch has been added near the Trumbauer sheep barn where produce is offered for sale in season. Livestock raised at Erdenheim Farm include cheviot sheep, Black Angus, belted Galloway and Scottish highland cattle.
Erdenheim means earthly home in German, the property was named by former owner Johannes George Hocker in the 18th century. The original substantial acreage has been reduced in size with much of it is being conserved by the Natural Lands Trust and the Whitemarsh Foundation. Also easements have been granted for public trails that are part of the Montgomery County Green Ribbon trail and the Whitemarsh township trail system.

Scope and Contents:
The folders includes a worksheets, site plans, and a photocopy of part of an article about the house and garden.
General:
This 12-acre property's garden, subdivided from a 54-acre farm, reflects the simplicity and purity of the restored farmhouse that it surrounds. Although the site's history can be traced to the 18th century, the current owners, one of whom is a landscape architect, have been the first to truly develop the gardens around the house. Vegetable, fruit, and flower gardens are accented by a decades-old grape arbor, ponds, and surrounding fields and woodlands. Naturalized daffodils and pansies in spring yield to roses and a variety of annuals and perennials in summer. An adjacent buffer of parkland ensures the intact, long-term survival of the property. The intent is to enjoy a contemporary garden as an appropriate setting for the ca. 1812 stone farmhouse and outbuildings.
Persons associated with the property include: Samuel Wilson (former owner, ca. 1730); Stephen Wilson (former owner, 1787-1819); Samuel Wilson (former owner, 1819-1825); Frank Schmitt (former owner, ca. 1911); Eleanor Witmer (former owner, 1935-1990); Louise Bull (former owner, 1935-1990); American Friends Service Committee (former owners, 1990-1993); and Derik Sutphin (landscape architect, 1993-present).

General:
Brush Hill Gardens have been evolving since 1971, the year when the owners first acquired and began to restore the 18th century farmhouse and barn. The garden began in the space defined by old stone walls between the house and barn and has been expanding ever since. Visitors enter the more formal part of the garden from the east through the garden gate next to an old Lord and Burnham greenhouse moved to the site from Pennsylvania. The first area is a moon garden, featuring a fountain and planted for foliage and texture in yellows and purples. Next, a rose walk of old shrub roses and climbers supported by a cedar-post arbor connects the house to the garden shed. Further along, the original garden space includes herbaceous borders, a peony border planted for spring interest with two "tors" that support clematis and other climbing vines (as well as two sprinkler heads), and a wheelbarrow garden planted for later season interest. To the west, the terraced serpentine garden, supported by stone walls, is planted in hot colors around a garden folly. Up the hill, the woodland arch leads to a developing woodland garden of rhododendrons, shade plants, and 14 cascading pools adorned with two bridges, one bright blue and the other yellow, where also lurks a grotto-like sculpted figure of Persephone by Simon Verity. The north-facing front of the house overlooks a pond created from an abandoned gravel quarry with its white wisteria-draped turquoise bridge. A separate well house in the field provides an additional water feature and a place to sit to survey the scene.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Mary Ann Dayton (former owner, before 1883); Julius E. Clark (former owner, 1883-1892); Edward J. Thayer (former owner, 1892-1918); Elizabeth Barrett (former owner, 1918-1947); Hildegarde Shaw (former owner, 1947-1964); Lloyd Parker (former owner, 1964-1971); Harold Calverly (landscape designer, 1979); Wallace Gray (landscape designer, 1990); Wes Rouse (consultant, ongoing); Scott Loomis (gardener, ongoing); Steve Tabacinski (gardener, ongoing); and Gary Keim (horticulturist, ongoing).
