Manchester -- Thompson Garden

Place:
Thompson Garden (Manchester, California)
United States of America -- California -- Mendocino County -- Manchester
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a property outline and aerial photograph overview, a description and worksheet, and copies of magazine and newspaper articles. The garden is noted for its use of heathers, Monterey cypress, driftwood, and "found" materials.
General:
"The garden is distinguished from most gardens primarily by two features: an extensive planting of heathers and the use of driftwood and other 'found' material in the construction of garden furniture and structures."
"There are three separate heather gardens consisting of more than 250 cultivars. Heathers were introduced into the garden in 1986 as an uninformed experiment. They proved to be so well suited to existing growing conditions, so readily propagated and so easy to maintain that we couldn't stop planting them until we ran out of space. It's just as well that we have only two and one-half acres."
"In addition to the gates, trellises, benches, etc., there is a Victorian style tree house and a dragon. The tree house is built in one of the largest Monterey cypresses in the United States. A weeping spruce grew to form three humps which suggested the body of a dragon; all that was needed was a head and tail which were carved from redwood. Recently a baby dragon, hatching from an egg, was added."
"The garden at one time was the barn lot of one of the earliest settlers in this area; the old house (ca. 1854) still stands on an adjoining lot. The horse barn (we lived in it while building our house) and the Monterey cypress trees planted long ago as a windbreak are distinctive features of the garden. The cypress trees protect the garden from the winds off the Pacific coast one-half mile to the northwest."
"The design of the garden and all the structures (except the barn) are the product of our own imagination (whimsey?) and effort. This may be only too obvious to the discerning eye of a professional garden designer. However, the process and the results are more meaningful and gratifying for having done it without professional help."
Persons associated with the property include: Samuel Hunter (ca. 1850), Harold Hunter (to 1966), and George Paddleford (1966-1972).

Lampen Garden (San Francisco, Calif.)
United States of America -- California -- San Francisco County -- San Francisco
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes slide list, garden description, newspaper article, notecard with a line drawing of the house and an information sheet.
General:
"A north garden-with brick wall (1889) on north end. Includes a collection of topiary and bonsai. Whimsical in mood with a "tooth fairy house" with an arch in boxwood hedge and small path leading to it. Mosaic design of squirrels over potting bench. On north end of house (southern end of garden - a mural extending the garden includes San Francisco views. She grows lily of the valley, cymbidiums in the ground, clivia, a lemon, orange and noisette roses."
"A handsome brick wall, put up in 1889, held back one small portion of one of San Francisco's many hills to make the garden possible. Facing north, the garden has evolved for us over the last 42 years."
"The seasonal changes are always amazing. The beauty begins in early spring with camellias, then the wisteria begins (over the tooth-fairy house), plus the rhododendron and roses. When they are done the jasmine begins, behind the fountain. The agapanthus makes a prolific border on both sides of the fountain and the roses come back for a second time."
"Only the wall of the house was a problem. We could never grow anything on it as the sun never quite reached it, but now with the final touch of our mural as a definated extention of our garden, we are complete."

General:
Looking toward the eastern slope of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Filoli lies about 25 miles south of San Francisco in the Crystal Springs Watershed. The mansion and gardens were built between 1916 and 1919 for William Bowers Bourn, II, and his wife Agnes Moody Bourn, who founded the Hillsborough Garden Club in 1922. Willis Polk was architect for the mansion, Arthur Brown, Jr., undertook additional architectural designs, and Bruce Porter designed the gardens. Isabella Worn supervised the gardens' planting and oversaw maintenance of the gardens for many years thereafter. Encompassing more than 15 acres, the gardens incorporate a formal design with imaginative plantings and many unique specimens from outside the United States. Following the Bourns' deaths in 1936, the property was acquired by William P. and Lurline Matson Roth. In 1975 Mrs. Roth deeded the estate to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include William Bowers Bourn, II, and Agnes Moody Bourn (former owners, 1916-1936); William P. and Lurline Matson Roth (former owners, 1937-1975); Bruce Porter (landscape architect, 1916-1919); Isabella Worn (horticulturist, 1916-1950); Willis Polk (architect, 1916-1919); and Arthur Brown, Jr. (architect).

United States of America -- California -- San Mateo County -- Woodside
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes two worksheets, copies of the garden plan, a brief narrative history of the property, and a bibliography relating to the history of the area in which the site is located. The garden is noted for its integration of country and formal design elements into the spectacular natural setting of a redwood forest.
General:
This site on the peninsula south of San Francisco was originally developed in the late 1920s. John McLaren, creator of Golden Gate Park, is said to have advised the owners at that time to preserve the redwoods on the property; fortunately his advice was heeded. In 1937 the property changed hands and acquired its present name. The new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Phleger, maintained it largely as originally planned, but commissioned additional work by Thomas Church. They also purchased additional land, bringing the estate's total size to 1,400 acres. Upon the death of Mrs. Phleger in 1991 the estate was purchased by the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), except for 50 acres and two houses which remain under private ownership.
The garden documented here is essentially a country garden, but with an air of elegance. Spring and summer borders are located on different levels and there are a separate rose garden, an apple orchard, and a pristine redwood grove. The garden and its beautiful setting in the coast range fully complement one another.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Eastman (former owners, 1928-1937); Mr. and Mrs. Herman Phleger (former owners, 1937-1991); Gardner A. Dailey (architect, 1928); Bruce Porter (landscape designer, 1928); John McLaren (landscape architect and park administrator, 1928); Thomas Church (landscape architect); Thomas Daggett (groundskeeper and horticulturist); and Dianne Schilling (photographer).

United States of America -- California -- San Mateo County -- Hillsborough
Date:
[between 1914 and 1949?]
General:
Bruce Porter in 1905 designed New Place. William Crocker's 700 acre estate in Hillsborough was one of the earliest Italianate Gardens in California. A formal garden surrounded the house, designed by Lewis P. Hobart and there were park lands planted with pine and oak specimen trees. A balustrade gravel terrace overlooked a lawn with pools and jet fountains. A stone foot bridge crossed the natural canyon which runs through the property, which also had a palm garden, tree ferns and Russian Maples. Mrs. Crocker was a horticulturist and the seeds from the stone pines came from Hadrian's Villa.
New Place was purchased by the Burlingame Country Club in 1954 and still has notable garden features. Imported urns and planted pots decorate the house terrace and a sarcophagus, shown in early photographs, still remains on th south terrace. A birdbath in a small temple stands between two giant Sequoia in the north-eastern part of the garden. A cutting garden is maintained for decorating the club. Modern additions include putting green, croquet court, tennis courts, and a golf and tennis pro shop. In this picture, Irish Yews flank the stairs to the flower garden. This fountain was moved to Huntington Park, San Francisco. It is called Fountain of the Tortoises.
