Woodward Garden, formerly known as.
General:
The landscape design was planned for this property by the original owners and landscape architect James Frederick Dawson, consulting for 15 years before the half-timbered Jacobean Tudor mansion was finished. During that time Krisheim was an arboretum open to the public who could "respect the trees and shrubbery". Their vision was to create a garden suburb in the city comprising a densely wooded entrance with a long driveway leading to parkland in front of the house, sweeping lawns directly behind the house to give an unobstructed view of the Wissahickon Valley, formal gardens on three levels beside the house, more private lawn below as well as cutting and vegetable gardens, and woodland gardens. The massed trees and native Wissahickon schist used throughout for walls, paths and the house itself were to give the impression of a woodsy retreat rather than the great estate they actually built. The original 40 acre property has been reduced to 14 acres and beginning in 1988 features of the original Olmsted Brothers hardscape and plantings have been restored.
At the top level of the formal garden there is a long pool used for swimming laps, fed from the wall fountains above that are run by a contemporary recycling pump. Dogwood trees are espaliered on the Wissahickon schist wall behind the pool which has cantilevered steps so workers could climb in from the service area on the other side of the wall. A wooden arbor and benches in an alcove above that wall recently were rebuilt following the original Olmsted Brothers designs. The second level of the formal garden has a rectangular reflecting pool in the center planted with iris and tulips, with Walter K. Hancock's sculpture "Boy with Squirrel" placed on the rim of the pool. Four parterres surrounding the pool contain dogwood and crabapple trees with bordering boxwoods and clusters of arborvitae at the corners of the pool. The lowest level walled garden was designed for contemplation with a long bench and two large specimen euonymus trees. In the wall behind the bench a saying from the Songs of Solomon is carved: "Awake O North wind and come south. Blow upon my garden that the spices thereof may flow out." Walkways in the formal terraces are brick with a mosaic stone path at the upper level.
Other features include a log house copied from a vacation house in Wyoming under tall pine woodlands and a tea house at the end of a newly planted hydrangea walk at one side of the second formal terrace. Additional benches and Adirondack chairs are placed under the trees in the front park and around a fire pit. Artifacts from the Arts and Crafts era include a Moravian tile floor in the tea house depicting symbols of the zodiac, containers for planting, Samuel Yellin ironwork, and a bronze sculpture of a boy with a ball sited under the arbor, by Johan Selmer-Larsen.
Persons associated with the garden include Dr. George and Gertrude Woodward (former owners, 1895-1961); United Presbyterian Church (former owner, 1961-1983); Peabody & Stearns (architects, 1910-1911); James Frederick Dawson (1874-1941) (independent and with Olmsted Brothers) (landscape architect, 1895-1910); Samuel Yellin (ornamental ironwork designer); Henry Mercer (Moravian ornamental tiles in the tea house and house); Walter K.

General:
Named after a slave who planted a flower garden on this rock ledge long before the town formerly known as Prides Crossing became popular for vacation homes for Bostonians, this property with its shingle style house was built in the 1880's with large windows facing the ocean view. However, the first owner did not install a garden. The second owner built a 3,400 square foot formal garden away from the house, walled with native stone and hidden from view on the four acre property. Comprised of a rectangle and a circle, the geometrically organized space was on two levels connected by stairs. In the 20th century the lower circular garden was shaded by a hemlock grove and featured a central pond with Henri Crenier's boy and turtle fountain sculpture. A flower border with anemones, foxgloves, lupines, gas plants, bugbane, iris and heliotrope was planted between the rough stone walls and patterned path of Majorcan pebbles that was installed, circa 1920. The rectangular upper garden had a wall fountain and tea house at one end with boxwood edged beds of roses, phlox, peonies and foxgloves with a heliotrope standard in the center. English ivy and climbing hydrangeas grew over the walls.
By 2012 when the most recent restoration of the garden was begun the rose and perennial beds were long gone, having been shaded out and replaced by lawn by an intervening owner. Shade loving perennials including astilbe, foxglove, lupine, and heliotrope were planted around the perimeter of that lawn. The lawn in the lower circular garden, now in full sun, was edged with pink dianthus and catmint. Korean dogwood and boxwood were planted on the rise between the two gardens, climbing roses were planted to climb the walls, and clematis was planted to climb the new arches over the gates. This restoration kept the hardscape walls, wall fountain, built-in bench and belvedere (tea house) and was completed in 2014.
Persons associated with the garden are General Charles Greeley Loring, Jr. (1828-1902) (former owner 1881-1902); Quincy Adams Shaw (former owner, 1902-1960); Sarah Pemberton Shaw (former owner, 1902-1945); Lydia Eliot Codman Shaw (former owner, 1947-1966); Samuel Eliot Codman (former owner, 1966-2008); William Ralph Emerson (1833-1917) (architect, 1881-1883); Arthur Little (1852-1925) & Herbert W.C. Browne (1860-1949) (architects of additions, 1903-1905); Henri Crenier (1873-1948) (sculptor, 1910); Laura Gibson (landscape architect, 2012- ).

General:
The 55 acres acquired in 1950 by the Seamans family comprised the upland area with house, woodland, meadow and pond, and the low-lying wetlands and sandy beachfront. For most of their history these two sections had been separate. The first recorded owner of the upland was Cornelius Larcom, of French Huguenot descent, who acquired it for farmland in the early 1700s. It remained a working farm and family homestead for five generations of Larcoms who lived in the homestead until 1890. Although the original homestead was replaced by a larger house in the 19th century, an historic log cabin remains. It was once quarters for slaves belonging to David Larcom who died in 1775. Juno, one of his female slaves, was freed and continued to live on the property. When the Boston & Maine Railroad extension reached Beverly Farms in 1890, the value of the property soared and was split up into two and purchased separately by 1907. Eventually, the two properties were consolidated into today's "Sea Meadow," but there were virtually no changes over the next century.
Overlooking Massachusetts Bay, the 18-acre garden boasts whimsical designs by its former owner, Eugenia "Gene" Merrill Seamans. Plant material in formal beds, near the house, are carefully chosen, as well as wildflowers, native shrubs and grasses which densely cover the transition to meadow and pond. On the grounds are informal adaptions of formal elements, such as an allée of lindens with a hint of geometry; a folly, that floats above an outcropping, accessed along a hidden path of alpines; and an extensive herb garden nestled in a rocky ledge by the kitchen doors. In the wetlands is a rustic footbridge which crosses the tidal creeks, dotted by berry bushes and banks of towering pink and white mallows.
Persons associated with the garden include the Larcom Family, (former owners, 1730-1853?); the Dexter Family (former owners, 1885-1920); Augusta Putnam (former owner, 1920-1945); Oliver Ames (former owner, 1945-1950); Robert & Eugenia Seamans (former owners, 1950-2010); H. J. Collins & Associates (pool & tennis court designer, circa 1980); Beverly Benson Seamans (sculptor, 1970-1990); Austin Lydon (garden assistant, 1951-1965); Dick & Sylvia Forgit (garden assistants, 1966-1986); Bob & Cindi Bell (garden assistants, 1987-2011).

Muffin's Garden (Cambridge, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Middlesex -- Cambridge
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes garden plans.
General:
Located off a cul-de-sac in the heart of Cambridge on approximately a quarter acre of land, Muffin's Garden is intimate and secluded. Muffin's Garden was installed in 1963. The current owner had little experience in gardening when the property was initially purchased and has guided the evolving design over fifty years. The garden had been laid out by the wife of local architect David Barns in the late thirties. The tall pink dogwood, katsura, and huge yew were present when the current owners moved in.
In 1984, the owners worked with landscape architect Alice Page Pickman. Pickman's plans show the redesign of the front entry, a new approach to the front door, a new home for the fountain with a large planting bed, and a new walkway, with plant recommendations. From 1995 to 1999, landscape designer Patricia Pratt supplied bulbs, plant material, and provided consultation. A pool was added with the pedestal fountain resettled within it, and the surrounding beds were reorganized and replanted. Caprizzi and Co. created curving bluestone edging around the pool and capped the "Radcliffe" wall with bluestone. The rock garden was begun and the whole garden redefined in a series of ordered spaces. In 2005, landscape architect Julie Moir Messervy sketched the design for the oval stone patio in the woodland garden.
The property is a long, irregular rectangle on an east/west axis and the house is located at its eastern edge. The garden is linear in shape, defined in English style by a series of "rooms" that flow informally from one to another. Ornamental pots, shallow steps, or the break in a wall mark the transitions between areas. The pool and fountain were designed to be viewed from the breakfast room. The entertaining and sitting areas on the terrace are easily accessed through the drawing room. The lawn area transitions to a bluestone path and onto Messervy's oval bluestone terrace set in the woodland and rock garden.
Trees are a determining feature of the garden, as nearly half the area behind the house is woodland. There are towering maples, hawthorn, hemlock, white pines, two katsura, tree-sized yews, and specimen trees such as stewartia, silverbell, magnolia, and swarf Japanese maples. As a result of the number of trees on the property, shade tolerant shrubs, bulbs, and plants have been carefully selected. Rhododendron, mountain laurel, hollies, viburnums, and Japanese pieris border the property.
Garden features include benches, bulbs, wooden fences, ferns, flower beds, foundation planting, garden borders, garden walks, gates, patios, ponds, retaining walls, rock gardens, shrubs, sheds, sculptures, stepping stones, terraces, urban gardens, stone walkways, walls, woodland gardens, and woodlands.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mrs. Otto G.T. Straub (former owner, 1926-1938); Professor and Mrs. Summer H. Slichter (former owners, 1938-1963); Al Jackson (gardener, 1963-2000); Carol Johnson (landscape architect, 1963); Alice Page Pickman (landscape architect, 1983-1984); Pat Pratt (landscape designer, 1995-1998); Julia Moir Messervy (landscape architect, 2005); Tom Maley (sculptor); David Gulde (gardener, 2001-); Jerry Gilligan (stonemason, 2005).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes garden plans and a planting list.
General:
This two-thirds of an acre urban garden encloses an 1876 house with a sunken garden between the house and street, and a back garden comprising lawn, an undulating border, a woodlands garden and a carriage house. The gardens have developed over the last 30 years, during which time the trees and evergreen hedges have matured and soared in height, especially those bordering the driveway that runs the length of the property from the street to the carriage house. Low stones walls enclose the sunken garden in front of the house and the mixed border in back, with a tall wooden fence marking off the sunken garden. The borders are planted densely and for sequential bloom so the garden is filled with color from April to October. Numerous sculptures are placed around the property, including unique sculptural benches. The owner, who is an architect, describes this garden as a place to move and to grow interesting specimen plants rather than as a place for relaxation.
The mature evergreen hedge bordering the driveway has a mix of cedar and cypress that replaced hornbeams destroyed in a fire. The incense cedar is sheared to contrast with the other trees, and in other areas trees have been shaped to their location, such as the weeping copper beech that frames a fountain made from a very large cypress wood barrel and a rusted copper pipe in the back garden. A path of stepping stones leads into the woodland garden where shade-loving perennials are the understory, rhododendrons form the middle story and mature evergreen and deciduous trees complete the design. A camellia shrub grown at the edge of the woodland garden is an unusual survivor in the New England climate.
Brattle Street Garden has been awarded two gold medal prizes for Notable Gardens and Outstanding Plant Material from The Massachusetts Horticultural Society. Also the gardens have been open for garden tours in Cambridge.
Persons associated with the garden include: William Bartlett (former owner, 1876-1906); Horace Bright (former owner, 1906-1984); Joanne Holtje (garden design and maintenance, 2003-present); Senta Barton (garden design and maintenance, 2003-present); Ann Sinclair (garden design and maintenance, 2001-2004); Michael Green (sculptor).

General:
The house dates to 1690 and was expanded in 1941. Former owners, the Shepley's, moved the barn and attached it to the salt box house. They also planted the yews, lilacs and possibly the older rhododendrons. A perennial garden is "lost." A cement pond , known as the "doze bowl," dates to the Shepley's former ownership. A swimming pool was installed in the late 1970s. Landscape designer, Ingrid Wagner, designed and planted the area between the pool and the house with hollies, azalea, mountain laurels and crab apples. George Sherwood created the "Dancer" sculpture in one of the perennial beds.
People and/or firm(s) associated with this property include: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sheply (former owners and architect of expansion, ca. 1940-1963); Sam and Martha Hoar (former owners, 1963-1987); Ingrid Wagner (landscape designer); and George Sherwood (sculptor).

General:
Located on 4 acres this flower garden was originally a pig farm. Sometime after 1981, a devastating fire destroyed the house and killed surrounding vegetation. All that remained was the barn. The current owners purchased the property in 1984 and a year later eight trailer loads of loam were brought in and hand-sifted for garden beds and borders that wrap around the property and its natural granite elements. The garden includes a full sun perennial garden, a shade garden, an antique rose garden, a meadow garden, and a small orchard of miniature fruit trees. These gardens feature flowering shrubs, perennials, bulbs and self-sowing biennials that are harvested regularly during eight months of the year to provide distinctive materials for the owner's floral design business located in the barn. Second generation woodlands lay beyond the developed spaces.
Roses, hydrangeas, peonies, astilbes, lady's mantle, Solomon's seal, catmint, tulips and hosta leaves may be grown for commercial floral arrangements but the gardens are designed to enhance the setting rather than traditional cutting gardens planted in rows. Inside the farmer's stone wall along the road there is a deep border of perennials and flowering shrubs. A curving pea stone driveway is bordered by birches, pines and dogwoods under planted with shade loving perennials. A formal oval rose garden with antique varieties as well as David Austin and other hybrids is protected by a lilac hedge, with boxwood globes and an antique gate at three entrances. More flower borders line the driveway up to the house culminating in a rose covered trellis. There is an herb garden with lavender that is nearly 30 years old, and thorn less blackberries and a fruit orchard nearby that contains apple, plum, peach and pear trees planted in 1986. Another shade garden with hydrangea edging the path leads to the woodlands and a dining terrace.

A sculpture of a goat and birdbaths by Roger DiTarando are placed in the gardens. Another feature is a sculpture of Beatrice by Brizzolesi.
In 2016 a raised bed garden for vegetables, cutting flowers and herbs was designed and built on a sunny slope behind the barn. It is fenced with birch poles and patterned panels with mesh and wires to support espaliered apples and keep out predators. There is a brick and stone custom made compass rose outside the gate, brick walkways between raised beds, and a tuteur sunk in gravel.
Persons associated with the garden include Nathaniel Hildreth (former owner, before 1854); Albert J. Lucas and Grace A. Lucas (former owners until 1947); Carl and Florence Wentworth Wilson (former owners, 1947-1983); Judson Wilson (former owner, 1982-1983); Architects Development Corporation (former owner, 1983-1984); Brizzolesi (sculptor, circa 1929); Jim Velleco (architect, 1984-1985); Priscilla Randall (trellis designer); Roger DiTarando (sculptor); Pauline Runkle (garden designer, 2017- ); Ed Mota (built birch fence and compass rose, 2017).
The North Shore Garden Club facilitated the 2014 and 2019 submissions of this garden's documentation.

Biographical / Historical:
Suzanne Marjorie Stockard Underwood (1917-2001) was one of the first women to graduate with a master's degree in 1943 from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University in Cambridge. She was a pioneering modernist architect who worked with Marcel Breuer drafting and building models. In addition to practicing architecture, she was a skilled landscape designer.
General:
Gardened by the same family since 1949 this 1.3 acre property with a "modern colonial style" house on stilts designed by the original owner features trees and shrubs. The temperatures at the coastal New England location are moderated by its proximity to water but the garden is subjected to high winds, salt air and, originally, thin rocky soil that was improved with homemade compost. The garden was planned for year round interest with trees and shrubs that would flower or fruit every month and conifers and broad leaved evergreens for winter. Lower limbs on some of the trees were removed to open the view to the bay, and the house was raised on stilts for the same reason. There are winding grassy paths throughout the gardens with narrow stone paths leading to the front door of the house and to the formal sunken garden. Many of the boxwood, hollies, junipers and rhododendron were rooted cuttings planted in the 1950's that have grown to full size while dwarf conifers have outgrown their cultivar status.
The planned succession of bloom times for this garden started in spring with magnolias and andomedas, followed by azaleas, crabapple and dogwood, then Japanese snowbell, hydrangeas and stewartia. Sourwood bloomed in august, franklinia in September, roses would continue blooming into November, and hollies provided color and decorative material in December. Specimen trees that are featured include blue China fir, dawn redwood, paperbark maple, a red jade crabapple, and several cut leaved red Japanese maples. Vegetable and rose gardens, irises and some perennial flowers have been added to the tree and shrub gardens over the years.
Persons associated with the garden include Julian and Suzanne Underwood (former owners, 1949-2001) Joan Underwood (current owner (2001- ); Suzanne Stockard Underwood (architect and garden designer, 1949-2001); Julian Underwood (architect, circa 1948); John Brum (gardener, 1960's-); Nate Atwater (sculptor, prior to 1985); Nancy Train Smith (sculptor, prior to 1999); Ron Rudnicki (sculptor of fish pond, 2003); Walter Gonet (garden shed construction, 1995).

General:
The New England Colonial style cottage built in 1789 by Phineas Pease, one of the original barns, and the channeled Konkapot brook from the old saw mill next door comprise the setting for Mary's Garden. Mary Hoffman Borie was a professional illustrator of plants, gardens and houses and the principle designer of this garden. When she moved to the one-acre property in the 1960s there was a perimeter planting of hemlocks with a woodlands garden. Now there are four distinct areas containing 45 flower beds with color choices that harmonize with nearby trees and shrubs: the woodland garden, the stonewall garden, the kitchen garden and the quarter moon garden. The hemlock screen around the property has smaller trees, native and cultivated shrubs, groundcovers, ferns and flowers in the understory. Other trees include apple, locust, birch and copper beech trees, and there are 107 shrubs throughout the property. Wildflowers were foraged and added to the mix years ago; now perennials are favored over annual flowers. The style of Mary's garden has become less formal, with self-sown and native plants allowed into the carefully designed flower beds.
The woodland garden was designed by the previous owner in a crescent shape that has evolved into a horseshoe shape for more sun exposure. In it there are natives including Jack-in-the-pulpit, wild cranesbill geranium, May apple and ostrich ferns, anchored by azaleas, hollies and mountain laurels and a Japanese maple. In spring the blooming season begins with ephemeral bulbs and flowering shrubs while ferns emerge, followed by peonies and perennials flowers. Annual flowers are dug in to add color and structure to this garden. The stone wall garden, sited between the house and barn features silver and blue tones with contrasting orange and yellow flowers. The quarter moon garden is an island bed featuring light green sedum, the dark purple foliage of ajuga, heuchera and hellebores. The kitchen garden beside the house has tall, scented old-fashioned flowers including phlox, iris, digitalis, nicotiana, narcissus and allium in the spring, and two trellises for clematis followed by morning glories later in the season. Also, there is a rock garden tucked under a mature grape arbor and espaliered trees against the house.
The Massachusetts Forest Health Program has recorded one of the black locust trees in Mary's Garden as the largest in the state.
Persons associated with the garden include: Phineas Pease (former owner, 1789-1836); Captain T.H. Lincoln (former owner, c. 1850); Helen Beaman Lakin (former owner and sculptor, 1957-1967); Mary Lakin Hoffman Borie (former owner and garden designer, 1967-1994); Peter Borie (former owner, 1994-2002); Cynthia Parson (garden designer, 1995 - present).

General:
Old Farm has a sunken and enclosed garden designed in 1912-1913 by Ellen Biddle Shipman in the Colonial Revival style to complement the 17th century farm house, described as a cloistered space within the more than one hundred acres of fields and woodlands that comprise this property. The garden was one of Shipman's earliest documented professional commissions, a rectangular plot sub-divided by stone and gravel walks into smaller rectangular beds surrounded by a low dry stone wall. At the far end there is a stone apse or excedrae with room for outdoor seating and a lily pond, now dry. Shipman's original stone terrace directly behind the house, stone walkway down the middle of the garden, and stone steps that lead up to the excedrae have grown over with grass and the American elm trees that shaded the enclosed garden have been replaced by other mature trees. The flower beds have been retained in their original shapes and siting, and have three distinct seasons of blooms: first daffodils, followed by irises, phlox and peonies, then fall asters.
The original 17th century house had rooms on either side of the chimney in front with a lean-to rear section. In the late 19th century the rear section was raised to two stories, and in the early 20th century the house was restored by preservation specialist Joseph Everett Chandler. Ellen Biddle Shipman added trellises for vines and a garden in front of the house planted with boxwood, roses and oleander.
Persons associated with the garden include: John H. B. Kent (former owner, 1836-1910); Benjamin F. and Adelaine L. Peach (former owners, 1899-1910); Alanson L. and Frances Pomeroy Daniels (former owners, 1910-1933); John S. and Mary B. Amory (former owners, 1933-1961); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, 1912-1913); Joseph Everett Chandler (preservation architect, 1915); Lawrence Tennis (gardener, 2004- ); Beverly Benson Seamans (1928-2012) (sculptor).
