Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
A 60 by 100 foot urban lot with an 1880's Victorian house has been the site of a unique artist's garden for 36 years. The garden areas in front of and behind the house are densely planted and packed with sculptures, salvage and donated articles, a life's work described by the owner as "Planting Sculpture, Sculpting Plants". Important symbols are repeated, including a wooden gate shaped like a hand and a hand-shaped koi pond with plants growing between the fingers, mythological figures that pertain to gardens, Flora and Demeter, and sculpted poles that suggest bamboo, painted in colors and inscribed with lettering to complement nearby plants. There is a poultry pavilion made from salvage for the 20 bantam chickens that freely range in the garden during the day. The dense planting succeeds because the soil was dug deeply and is amended with organic materials, from the chickens and the other compost, kept at the end of a path of discarded gravestones. The garden is tended by hand and vigorous plants are pruned back so others can thrive. The plant selection is broad and diverse, including sub-tropical varieties and since the garden is watered by hand it may evolve to feature more drought tolerant selections.
Some of the inorganic items the owner has worked into her garden design include bowling balls set in pots or piled up as mulch, reflective obelisks set among silvery leaves, old flatware planted in the soil, ceramic bulbs also planted in pots, necklaces of sculpted and carved spheres draped in trees and ceramic eggs draped on the chicken coop, and industrial cast-offs such as a giant spring used as a plant support. Artworks contributed by others include a statuesque figure known as "The Big Beauty" set among bamboo and giant horsetail and cut-out steel figures and heads suspended from trees or poles.
Marcia Donohue (owner, garden designer and sculptor, 1978- ); Sara Tool (sculptor); Cevan Forristt (koi pond designer); Mark Bulwinkle (sculptor).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and local newspaper articles.
General:
Private donations and public funds and manpower enabled the creation of a public memorial garden outside the arts and crafts city hall building in the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Before this project was approved there were inappropriate plantings that had to compete with tree roots and canopy, walkways and front steps that were uneven, deteriorating wooden handrails, run-off from the roof falling directly on the garden; and the retaining wall separating the garden area from the parking lot was crumbling. The sloping site was cleared and re-graded so all the new walkways would be ADA-compliant. The cement steps were repaired, sand-blasted and repainted and the retaining wall was replaced. Drainage problems were corrected and California natives better suited to drought conditions were planted. Large rustic pots are planted with annuals, and changed each season. Hand-crafted iron railings made by Robert Signorella and a recirculating fountain made from a redwood stump add design features. The old wooden hand-rails were repurposed as backs for the cement benches on the patio.
The public garden is in memory of Connie Ridder, a long-time member of the Carmel-by-the-Sea Garden Club. In one of the flower beds there is a granite stone with a bronze plaque dedication to her.
Persons associated with the garden include: All Saints' Episcopal Church (former owners, 1913-1951); City of Carmel-by-the-Sea (owners, 1951- ); Michelle Comeau (landscape designer (2012); Robert Signorella (sculptor of railings).

General:
"Home was planned and built for the George Pope family in 1933. Pope family were the only owners for 50 years. The garden is thought to be among the first (if not the first) commission for Thomas Church in Hillsborough. The earth was moved by pack mules--the total installation cost $5000.00."
"One enters the property by a bridge over a creek which flows year round. The two story stucco house has a three story tower with a foundation planting, trellises and some original fixtures. Urns aand pots enhance the entry terraces."
The central focus of the front garden is a sunken grass allee bordered by narrow pea gravel paths. Boxwood hedges and elevated flower borders are backed by serpentine hedges. A row of flowering fruit trees define each side of the allee. Perennials are planted in the borders beneath the fruit trees.
A focal point is created at the end of the allee by a sculpture, Balanced and Unbalanced D by Fletcher Benton. Perennial borders flanks both left and right sides of the garden.
Magnificent California live oaks are a feature of the rear garden. A large sunken brick patio is directly off of the living room. Four pollared Plane trees planted in the patio provide shade in the summer and architectural interest in the winter. Beyond is lawn bounded on the left by a curving border of rhododendrons and azaleas. On the right is the swimming pool area separated from the lawn by a boxwood hedge.
A second tier of lawn is surrounded by a natural planting. The eye is carried to a small waterfall pond set in river rock and surrounded by large shade loving plants.
Persons associated with the property include: Thomas Church (landscape architect); Jack Stafford (landscape architect); William Wurster (architect); Fletcher Benton (sculptor).

Arcady (Montecito, California)
United States of America -- California -- Santa Barbara County -- Montecito
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, articles, a bilbliography and a planting lists.
General:
Located in the Montecito Valley, near Santa Barbara, the 32 bedroom Italian Renaissance towered house at Arcady, once owned by George Owen Knapp. Knapp purchased the property from Ralph Radcliffe and Jane McCall Whitehead and hired architect E. Russell Ray to expand the 17 bedroom home into one with 32 bedrooms, instructing Ray not to change the Whitehead's original construction. The original residency became the north wing and the new construction including a 65 foot tower was placed at a better angle to provide a sweeping view of the Santa Ynez mountains. Servant quarters, gardeners' cottages, stables and garages were also added.
The property consisted of approximately 200 acres, of which 50 were cultivated as gardens and were surrounded by a wall of buff sandstone. The estate was set amongst an informal planting of oak trees and the roads and meandering paths followed the natural configuration of the land. The upper garden and terrace were designed by Carleton M. Winslow and the Roman styled bathhouse and water gardens were designed and completed in 1914 by Francis T. Underhill. Garden ornamentation such as a marmoreal seat or glazed terra cotta relief set into a stone pillar were situated in the cultivate areas.
The most comprehensive description of the property, especially the bath house and water gardens is written in Volume II of David F. Myrick's, "Montecito and Santa Barbara: the Days of the Great Estates." A bathhouse was set into the hillside and included a heated pool with an electrically controlled sliding roof over the swimming pool and dressing rooms. To the east of the bathhouse was a large outdoor swimming pool, a children's pool and a lily pool. Paths leading away from the swimming pool led to the water garden, a succession of cascading pools connected by stairways leading to a grotto, tea garden and an enormous large oak.
The property also included a small house across the street referred to as 'The Hut' which had views of the Pacific Ocean and at one time included a hollowed out trunk from a 50 foot redwood brought from Sequoia National Park.
According to a guide was prepared for the visiting members of the Garden Club of America in April of 1926, the gardens of the Knapp estate were described as 19 designated areas including: a yellow garden, green garden, blue garden, rose garden, redwood garden, iris garden, the hall of mirrors garden, path from the blue garden east to grotto, the residence lawn, the ivy lawn, south of the residence, three paths to the swimming pools, the water gardens, the gardens below the redwood tree, Arcady entrance driveway and a coniferous group.
In 1933, George Knapp's son, William, planted 6,286 trees as well as a lemon orchard. In 1941, the estate was sold and nothing was done to the gardens. Major sections of the estate were sold in 1945-47. An extensive description is written by Myrick. The upper garden of Arcady in the 1930s and 1940s included a fountain and two obelisks. Beyond this garden was an open music pavilion where Mr. Knapp had an organ. In 1953, architect Mary Craig designed a house for James Hayes (Belle) when she purchased the property. A swimming pool was added to the upper garden in the late 1960s.
Persons associated with the garden include: Ralph Radcliffe and Jane McCall Whitehead (former owner, to 1911), George Owen and Louise Savage Knapp (former owner, 1911-1945), E. Russell Ray (architect of expanded house and 65 foot tower), Francis R. Underhill (designer of the water gardens/lower gardens), Carleton Monroe Winslow (architect of the terrace and upper gardens), Charles Gibbs Adams (landscape architect of the terrace?), Strobel? (sculptor), Mary Craig (architect of the house on the terrace of the pavilion, 1953) and mulitple owners once the property was subdivided and sold.

von Hasseln Garden (Pebble Beach, California)
United States of America -- California -- Monterey County -- Pebble Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, photocopies of articles about the project, and other information.
General:
Located on two acres in Pebble Beach, California the von Hasseln Garden is dedicated to ecological principles in electricity, water and heating and the use of sustainable materials. The absence of a lawn and the black bamboo and tree plantings (which do not require watering after the first year of planting) all contribute to the conservation of water on the property.
Upon entering the cloistered courtyard of this home and garden, there is a harmony enhanced by the warm sunny toned garden walls and broad patio with the house and garden flowing together in a perfect meld to create an effect of spacious, elegant simplicity. The entry garden tastefully combines sculpture, raised beds for rhizomes and vegetables, a greenhouse room, and a quiet pool enclosed by the high wall on three sides. There is a serene sense of oneness seen through the walls of glass to the vast back garden.
In the gardens surrounding the home a visual flow extends through thick Ultraviolet filtered glass to rear and side gardens with small ponds and rills. Beyond the side ponds lay artfully planted beds of black bamboo. Water conservation is present in over three hundred trees such as centuries old Coastal Oaks, redwoods, sycamores and cypress, which depend on rainfall to flourish. These surround the exuberant bed of thousands of S. Africa natives (geophytes that store water) iris and azaleas. For months in the spring it is a moving cloud of soft white blossoms accented by blue Dutch iris and yellow tulips.
Behind all this beauty, the main surprise is to learn of the owner/designer's passion for conservation. The integration of house and garden is a masterful marriage of state of the art conservation features with a keen awareness of classic proportions for beauty and love of horticulture.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lee von Hasseln (architect, 2001); John Brooks (garden designer, 2001); Jim Wood (sculptor, 2002); Amy Blackstone (sculptor, 2007); Walter Guthrie (builder, 2004); and Bernard Trainor (builder, 2006).

United States of America -- California -- Contra Costa -- Richmond
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and the features plan for the garden.
General:
Located on approximately 1/3 of an acre, The Wave Garden overlooks San Pablo Bay, part of the San Francisco Bay, in Richmond, California. The owners began construction of the garden in 2007 on a piece of land that was originally a vacant city lot. The Wave Garden is unique because while it is a private garden, it also has a section open to the public which includes an ADA compliant middle pathway. The garden was designed as a work of art, inspired by the work of sculptor Douglas Purdy which is featured in the garden. The winding pathways, platforms, and stairs were created out of textured concrete by artist Victor Armador. The curves of the garden reference the waves of nearby San Pablo Bay. The fencing and ironwork in the garden was designed by blacksmith, Robert Sharpe.
Many of the plants within The Wave Garden are water-efficient. They were selected to be sustainable in the California climate, which has frequent droughts, and also for their contrasting shapes, colors, and heights. Three types of plants in The Wave Garden are California native plants, but most originate from Australia, South Africa, Mexico, or Chile.
Persons associated with the garden include: Victor Amador (concrete artist, 2005- ); Robert Sharpe (blacksmith, 2007-2008); Kellee Adams (gardener, 2007-2008).

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."

Kully Garden (San Marino, California)
United States of America -- California -- Los Angeles County -- San Marino
Scope and Contents:
The folders include photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The garden and house were first designed in 1939 on a flat ¾ acre property in San Marino, a small suburb of Los Angeles 30 miles from the coast. The area has a Mediterranean-like climate that receives approximately 14 inches of rain per year, in the winter only. Original to the front is a large lawn with Viburnum suspensum hedges on each side. Past the driveway, original concrete blocks surround the courtyard, and continue around both sides of the house and the perimeter of the rear garden. The original rear garden was mostly lawn, edged by a narrow path, hedges of Viburnum suspensum and an assortment of trees, including three large Quercus agrifolia, the coast live oak most common to this area. Still in existence from 1939 are the mature Plantanus ramosa (California sycamore) at the courtyard entrance. The second owners, in the 1960s turned part of the back lawn into lathe houses for their camellia collection, replacing some of the Viburnum suspensum with camellia specimens, which still exist.
After the original owners sold the property in 1960, it was owned by a second family for nearly a decade before being sold a third time to the present owners in 1969. Since the present owners bought the property, the gardens have undergone multiple revisions by four landscape architects, including the notable Robert Fletcher, who worked intermittently with the owners between 1985-1995. In every revision to this estate's gardens, every effort was made to preserve and incorporate the very mature trees and shrubs which provide form, color and shade. While the estate has plantings in the front lawn and flanking the east and west sides of their home, the most impressive landscape features are in the rear of the property, particularly the borders surrounding the central lawn and the plantings along the 'Bouquet Canyon' stone path to the pool. In the 1970s landscape architect Chuck Hoffman designed the rear garden, emphasizing the desire for informal and naturalistic garden spaces for outdoor living around the French colonial-style house. He designed the swimming pool, two terraces, and created curving borders around the lawn, and added four Liriodendron tulipifera (tulip trees). In the 1980s landscape designer Robert Fletcher built on Hoffman's footprint, adding more distinctive plant material, installing six bullet-shaped Syzygium paniculatum to anchor the borders, and turned one terrace into a small stone patio after an addition to the house. Nurseryman Frank Burkard added Phormium tenax (New Zealand flax), roses and other shrubs in the 1990s.
Garden features at the entrance of the courtyard include an espalier Magnolia grandiflora, a four-part sculpture, "Kyoto Protocol" by Ray Meeker, which is surrounded by Ophiopogon (mondo grass), with an overhanging Olea europaea (olive) and Plantanus racemosa and a large collection of potted succulent varieties on the terrace selected by landscape architect John Caitlin in 1970 for their heat tolerance.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. M.D. Schatzman (former owners, 1939-1960); Carla Barker Hind and William O. Hind (former owners; 1960-1969); H. Roy Kelley (architect, 1939); John Caitlin (landscape architect, 1970); Charles Hoffman (landscape architect, 1972); Robert M. Fletcher (landscape architect and photographer, 1985-1995); Frank Burkard (nurseryman, 1990); Mark Bartos (landscape architect, 1999); Peter Lodato (sculptor, 1991); Ray Meeker (ceramic artist, 2005).
