Type:
Archival materials
Place:
The Granby Garden (Richmond, Virginia)
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, planting lists, features plan, bibliography and other additional information.
General:
The Granby Garden, located on approximately one acre in Richmond, Virginia, is an urban garden which spans both public and private areas. Development of the garden began in 1975 with the purchase of the house, which included a garden comprised of fifty dying rose bushes and a grass path. Since that time the garden has matured and increased, with added components reflecting an interest in history, architecture, whimsy and community. The original path was paved with an assortment of brick, granite spalls and bluestone pavers in 1986. In 1993, adjacent property was leased and the garden was expanded. The public alleys on either side have also been incorporated. Among The Granby Garden's features are garden beds up to six feet deep, walkways, arbors, terra-cotta pottery, a Gothic-style toolshed inspired by an eighteenth-century drawing by William Kent.
The garden beds in the alleys were planted with divided plants from the private area of the garden. The owner, the creator of the garden, selects native, hardy, human and dog resistent plants.
The dense beds, filled with a variety of perennials and annuals, echo the cottage-style gardens of England. Plantings include primrose, daylilies, iris, Rudbeckia, oxalis, variegated Solomon's seal, rose and helleborus. Spiky trees, such as Juniper perfecta and cypress, punctuate the lush plantings. Various grasses, hosta and ferns add verticality and texture. Shrubs include varieties of hydrangea, althea, golden barberry, crape myrtle, globe arborvitae, photinia and Ligustrum. Mandevilla vine, caladiums, begonias and impatiens are planted annually for additional color.
Persons associated with the garden include: Virginia Bryce (former owner, 1940s-1974), John Melville Jennings (former owner, 1974-1975).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, copy of a Lamont Button Christmas card, and other photocopies.
General:
Architect Lamont H. Button built this house for his family in the late 1920s, on a 60 by 175 foot lot that had belonged to a farm with a cherry orchard on the edge of town. Re-using discarded Belgian blocks from a street project in Pittsburgh he built a tall house with European arts and crafts features such as the deeply inset arched front door with a ceramic tile attributed to Pewabic Pottery set in a millstone as the stoop. The house is adjacent to Frick Park and landscaping of the sloped site blurs the transition between its grounds and the park. The garden in front of the house is densely planted with Japanese maples, a weeping weigela, magnolia, holly, lace-cap hydrangea and Japanese snowbell. There are stone paths and a stone bridge across a dry river rock stream that leads to a stone bench set among white azaleas. Under plantings in the front yard include pachysandra, Lenten rose, geranium, epimedium, strawberry, spring bulbs, Japanese anemones, and daisies. The doorway is wreathed by ivy and a climbing rose arches over a bay window.
There is a narrow walkway to the rear garden between the house and a grape arbor. The bluestone patio is shady and has a wall fountain with a rill cut into the patio and down the steps to the park. Plants include hosta, fern, cyclamen, lilies, astilbe, and white climbing hydrangeas, with pots on the steps and a window box filled with colorful annuals. Wisteria and fall clematis grow on an iron trellis. Steps lead down to a lower green garden paved with river gravel with a bench between two green Asian rice pots. There is an ancient oak tree thought to be at least 125 years old anchoring this garden with an understory of Solomon's seal, jack in the pulpit, and ferns. Wind chimes in the trees and a hammock for reading are in another secret garden further down the hill.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lamont Hartung and Blanche Button (former owners, 1927); Albert and Wiggins (former owners, dates unknown); Nicholas and Louise Criss (former owners, 1958-1995); Lamont Hartung Button, AIA (architect, 1920s?); Sarah Drake, AIA (architect, 1995); Joel C. LeGall, ASLA (landscape architect); Rob Weaver (metal work)
