Teviot Farm (Far Hills, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Somerset County -- Far Hills
Scope and Contents:
The folders include work sheets, a written description, and a garden plan.
General:
The Teviot Farm house, part of which is an old quarry man's stone house, is situated on a west-facing hillside that slopes down to the North Branch of the Raritan River. The river view is the focal point of the house and gardens. The original landscape plan with walls, pergolas, and terraces, as well as much of the foundation planting, still existed unchanged in 1994. On a lower level, an English-type informal curving path with perennial borders leads from the pergola past a tool shed to the top of an old quarry and on into the woods. On the west, the large porch opens on a narrow grass terrace with two old maple trees edged by a low box hedge. A grass path below goes from the rose garden around to the south side of the house overlooking a pasture field which runs along the river.

New Jersey Woodland Property (Princeton, New Jersey)

Varying Form:
Frog Pond
General:
The New Jersey Woodland Property comprises 3.5 acres, a Colonial Revival house designed by architect Rolf W. Bauhan (1892-1966) in 1959, and ten distinct garden areas that the owner has been developing since 1981. Among the first area encountered is wooded lot bordered by preserved open space, a spring-fed pond, a swimming pool, and a graceful curving entry with bluestone steps and mature rhododendron and mountain laurel. Problems to overcome included a huge native deer population, undeveloped areas where invasive plants thrived, heavy clay soil, a cinder block retaining wall near the swimming pool, and the competing roots and canopies of mature trees that had to be accommodated in the landscape designs. The owner undertook a three-year course of study at the Barnes Arboretum, installed a six-foot tall deer fence around the property, and found the right plant for the right place, taking into account light, soil conditions and terrain. The style of the gardens is naturalized, with different species intermingling, rather than formally planted garden beds.
The entry courtyard was improved by replacing black asphalt with stone pavers, installing a brick retaining wall and piers, and planting bulb, perennial and shrub gardens under existing trees. The front path to the main entrance of the house is a bluestone walkway bordered by rhododendron and mountain laurel under planted with hosta, tiarella, euonymous and other ground covers. The pool terrace is in full sun, and features a 50-year-old wisteria that wraps around the house, Chippendale style gates lead to the pool, and vistas of the other gardens, pond and woodlands due to its higher elevation. Dwarf conifers are planted under the overhanging roof.
A perennial garden that replaced grass on the south side of the house was the owner's first project, with stone retaining walls defining the space. The eastern border of the property features unusual rhododendron. `The cryptomeria garden is a small woodland screen that features naturalized plantings. The woodland garden was designed with a meandering stone path and beds of naturalized perennials and shrubs but the soil was poor and needed yearly additions of leaf compost. A tennis court and outdoor room were installed in 1987 near Stony Brook and the designated open space. The banks of the pond created from a spring by the previous owners are accessible for bass fishing, with the outer perimeter planted in trees and shrubs that screen the property from the street.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Stanley (former owners, 1959-1981); Rolf W. Bauhan (architect, 1959); Robert S. Bennett (architect, 1997, 2008); David M. Lenker (landscape architect, 1959); Doerler Landscapes (landscape architect, 1973, 1975); S. Lawrence Bencze (landscape architect, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1995); Barbara J. Olejnik, CLA (landscape architect, 2000-2002); Ann Mallory (sculptor of "Forest Pool"); Roger Ditarando (sculptor of "Bird's Nest"); Charlotte Calwell Stokes (sculptor of "Francis of Assisi")

Boxwoods (Scotch Plains, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Union County -- Scotch Plains
Scope and Contents:
Boxwoods holdings consist of 1 folder including a worksheet and garden description and (9) 35 mm. slides.
General:
This two-acre garden site, established in 1954, surrounds a house dating to 1845 (with subsequent renovations). Landscape architect Roberta Freeman Dixon laid out the three-part plan in 1956, which has been closely followed by the owners since that time. Windbreaks were important to cut weather and frame the house in the field. Evergreen bedding plants surround the house and edge the meandering landscape. The vegetable beds and cutting garden are behind hurdle fencing allowing them to be kept in less than pristine condition without detracting from the rest of the garden, Boxwood was brought in from Virginia and is used solely as foundation planting, accented with Ilex crenata, including 'Bulatta'. Native rhododendron, Leucothoe, hollies, cherry laurel (Prunus laurocerasus), hemlock, and dogwoods are used repeatedly in the landscape, giving a peaceful background of lush greenery with occasional bloom interest. A wonderful old barn and a pump house on the property add charm and are enhanced with a choice Chinese white wisteria on the barn's car entrance and a climbing boxwood espaliered on the pump house. An original sculpture, "Inspiration," by David Edstrom, is used with water in a little side garden entrance off the library. It is surrounded with a holly hedge and Buxus microphylla at the base of the planting, making it handsome in all seasons. This is a charming garden with many unique features that complement the historic farmhouse setting.
Persons associated with the property include: Charles Detwiller (architect, 1954); Roberta Freeman Dixon (landscape architect, 1956); David Edstrom (sculptor, 1927); and Lois Poinier (garden designer, 1968).

After getting to the house one enters the formal herb garden. This area at the back of the house serves as a kitchen garden and offers views for the living room and other parts of the house. Behind the house is a barn next to a slightly overgrown meadow that is home to several different types of fruit trees. There is also a vegetable garden and 90 foot grape arbor which provides a heavy harvest every year.
Stony Brook also has a cutting garden and rose garden which provides roses for the house almost 6 months of the year. All the vegetables and annuals are started in house in the Stony Brook greenhouse, then moved outside to harden off in coldframes. The property also has a rejuvenated lilac allee, several functional wells, a swimming pool, tennis court and adjoining hillside rock garden. Stony Brook is a true masterpiece. Vegetable garden with guest houses and garage in background.

General:
Molly Adams credits Betsy Park as the sculptor of the sundial. Its inscription reads "I Wish Thee As Much Pleasure In The Reading As I Have Had In The Writing," a quote attributed to English poet Francis Quarles.
It is possible that this is the sundial in Anne's Garden located on the grounds of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Gladstone, New Jersey. According to the May 20, 1971 issue of Bernardsville News, the sundial was given by Betsy Park's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Borman, in memory of their son-in-law Robert Wesley Schooley, Jr. who passed away in 1968. The sundial in Anne's Garden was dedicated in 1971.

General:
In the possession of the Hyde family from 1929 to 2006, this south-facing, two-tiered garden incorporated a design by Umberto Innocenti and Ferruccio Vitale from the early 1930s, when Innocenti worked for the firm Vitale & Geiffert. The garden featured boxwood hedges, formal flower beds, and a small pond with a central fountain sculpture of a boy and dolphin, made by an Italian stonemason. Fieldstone walls with gargoyles divided the upper and lower gardens, while low fieldstone walls encircled the lower garden, overlooking fields and woods beyond. Between 1954 and 1992 the farm was the site of an art gallery operated by former owner and sculptor Condict F. Hyde.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Umberto Innocenti (landscape architect, ca. 1930); Ferruccio Vitale (landscape architect, ca. 1930); Vitale & Geiffert (landscape architects, ca. 1930); Mrs. Leslie Hyde (former owner, 1929-?); and Hugh M. and Condict F. Hyde (former owners, before 2006).
