Litchfield -- Baby Boomer Retirement Garden

Place:
Baby Boomer Retirement Garden (Litchfield, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield County -- Litchfield
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and detailed garden documentation.
General:
The Baby Boomer Retirement Garden is a dense yet low-maintenance garden designed to meet the needs of lifelong gardeners who have chosen to simplify their lives by downsizing to a smaller property. Described as a "retirement garden," the property serves to minimize tasks such as weeding, mulching, and staking. In setting the framework for the garden, the view of the surrounding landscape was a guiding principle. An old apple tree, named the "Iconic Apple Tree," is the focal point of the large lawn which leads the eye to the mountain vista beyond. The renovation of the house included the addition of glass windows and doors so that every room's west facing wall would have a view of the landscape.
The garden area is compact but features great variety. It includes elements of five different gardens, including a rock garden, an herb garden, a shade garden, perennial borders, and a water garden. In keeping with the low-maintenance theme plantings were chosen for their resilience including peonies, daffodils, daylilies, poppies, and sedums, which are set amongst an evergreen backbone of juniper, false cypress, holly, mugo pine, bog rosemary, periwinkle, and yucca. The only staking occurs when the six peony plants are in bloom, and annuals are limited to a flat of petunias added in the spring.
Described as the garden's main attraction is a 35 foot long water lily pool, the side of the pool also provides garden seating in the form of a stone sitting wall. The pool is a naturally balanced system featuring a koi, snails, frogs, a school of goldfish whose population is kept in check by a resident great blue heron, and an assortment of aquatic plants such as water lilies, hornwort, and water violet.
Bordered by kale and marigolds the herb garden, which provides herbs and greens for salads, is conveniently located just off the kitchen. A shade garden is located in view of the master bath which sits in an oversized glassed window box, providing a verdant greenhouse-like view for bathers. Flanking each end of the lily pool two identical perennial borders provide continuous bursts of color in four waves of blooms: the first wave features daffodils and forsythia, the second wave arrives with the blooming of peonies, poppies, and assorted allium, the third wave occurs at the height of the summer when the water lilies, irises and daylilies bloom, and the color season closes with the fourth wave consisting of a massive overplanting of white 'Casa Blanca' lilies.

General:
A modest fieldstone circa 1800 farm cottage was enlarged into a 22-room Tudor style mansion during the Country Place era in the early 1900's. That house burned to the ground in 1939 and was rebuilt in 1940 in the same style, with a conservatory and garage wing added by the current owners in 1995. Earlier remaining gardens included a secret garden, courtyard garden, pool garden and overgrown vegetable garden. New garden rooms have been added on the 30 acre property; those nearest the house are more formal and laid out on axial lines while the more distant rooms are casual in style, leading to surrounding woodlands. Starting from the low stone wall along the road there is a circa 1850 cottage and other outbuildings with a cottage garden of roses, hollyhocks, clematis and herbs, a nearby apple orchard with new and historic trees, a wire and post fence covered with climbing hydrangea and a red oak allée. The replanted secret garden has an informal perennial garden entry through an old stone foundation leading to boxwood parterres planted with perennials with lead statues representing spring and fall, and fences draped with climbing roses and autumn clematis. A boxwood hedge screens the secret garden from the house. A crescent shaped azalea garden was added in 2001 centered by an armillary sphere. The formal vegetable and herb potager has eight brick edged vegetable beds, four herb parterres, roses and clematis on the fences, a lilac walk and an all-white scented moon garden. The formal English style two level courtyard garden room has been modified with a new bluestone patio, grass walkways, and more exuberant plantings that include four standard dwarf Serbian spruces, weigela surrounding a curved stone bench, oak leaf hydrangeas and viburnums. The lower terrace has the original pond with a whimsical lead snail fountain and limestone coping.
A less formal hydrangea, fern and hosta garden room was planted in 1997, replacing the remains of an old stone wall. A rhododendron and daylily garden was added soon after, continuing toward the woodland and also replacing stone rubble. Kudzu-covered trees were removed and replaced with mature spruce. The conservatory garden next to the new wing has a spiral brick-lined gravel path terminating in an antique Burmese jar, planted with spring bulbs and boxwood. The original pool installed in the 1960's was positioned so it could not be seen from the house; with the installation of deer fencing a three-season garden could be planted, starting with allium, peonies, and irises in spring, echinacea and lilies in summer, and fall sedums and asters. A semi-circular bird garden room bordered with shrubs features a large feeder under planted with black elephant ears. Following the loss of numerous black locust trees to Hurricane Sandy in 2012 new garden rooms named after the wooden red gate installed in 2016 were planted with spirea, dogwood, winterberries, hydrangea, weigela, and Japanese maples. Another part of the property denuded of trees by the storm has been converted to large irregular swathes of native grasses, also attractive to birds. The English greenhouse built in 1997 is used for winter storage of container plants but also has a shaded terrace for casual dining and a boxwood nursery planted in symmetrical rows. In the center of the front lawn there is an antique sculpture of a pineapple, with dogwood, viburnum, daffodils and daylilies planted on the far side of the circular driveway. The foundation plantings at the house include ground covers, American boxwood, climbing and oak leaf hydrangea, hinoki false cypress and bottlebrush buckeyes.
Persons associated with the garden include Joseph Jr. (1871-1955) and Eleanor Theodora Duer Larocque (1870-1953) and heirs (former owners, 1903-1968); Charles and Nancy de Rohan (former owners, 1968-1974); William and Janis Coneys (former owners, 1974-1994); William Stone Post (1866-1940) (architect, circa 1903); Harry Allan Jacobs (1872-1932) (architect, 1913); Mott Brooshovft Schmidt (1899-1977) (architect, 1940); Hiland Hall Turner (architect, 1995); Brian W.

El Chaparral (Phoenix, Arizona)
Scope and Contents:
22 digital images (2014, 2020-2021).
General:
el chaparral is located in the Citrus Homes subdivision and Burgess Lateral District of Phoenix, Arizona. Established in 1992, the 3-acre property features desert gardens, perimeter greenery, sculptures, and a view of nearby Camelback Mountain. The name for el chaparral (all lower case) was influenced by the owner's familial connection to the property and the American Southwest.
The garden is connected to the historical agricultural development of the surrounding central Arizona landscape. The property is sited on a former citrus grove, which was supplied water by the historic irrigation canals constructed in 1897. Entering the property one crosses the Burgess Lateral canal and passes behind a high oleander hedge and through the rusted iron gate. A circular crushed granite drive loops around a low, hedge-defined square of lawn whose symmetrical grass pathways radiate in four directions. Centered is a bronze "Snail Boy" Italian fountain within a circular pond, The visual center here is aligned with the 2700-foot peak of Camelback Mountain, about a mile to the north.
Numerous palm trees, cypress, and tree-size pittosporum, bottle brush, and myrtle remaining from the 1930s soften the organic texture of unsheathed brick walls painted a cool and creamy white. The perimeters of the garden are consistently green, with many varieties of tall trees providing both definition and privacy. Ficus, pomegranates, live oaks, and orchid trees fulfill their functions well.
Completing the garden, a gated white brick retaining wall separates the pool area from a lower-level 136-foot by 36-foot lawn that incorporates the entire back third of the property. The south perimeter is bookended on the east and west ends with small stands of citrus trees that memorialize the area's agricultural past. Tree-shaded, beehive-shaped stacked sandstone sculptures created by John V. Long, landscape architect, line the south boundary of the lawn (the west end grove contains real beehives).
North of the east citrus grove are six raised beds planted seasonally with vegetables and flowers. A potting shed complete with compost bins and a chicken coop border the farming plot. Adjacent to it, framing the northeast corner of the front yard, lies a spacious desert garden designed by Christy Ten Eyck called the "Hummingbird Garden." It contains cactus, succulents, rock, and John V. Long sculptures.
The design of the house was completed by Chicagoan Edward Loomis who had been the architect of Camelback Inn. It was completed by the winter of 1938. The property consists of a main house, guest house, garage, carport, and tractor barn, created in a Spanish-eclectic style similar to that of the Inn. It was later remodeled with the assistance of local architect Peter Lendrum.
Persons associated with the garden's design: John V. Long (landscape architect and sculptor, 1990s), Christy Ten Eyck (desert garden designer).
Provenance:
The Arizona Columbine Garden Club facilitated this garden documentation in 2022.

Hee Family Garden (Honolulu, Hawaii)
Scope and Contents:
13 digital images (2022) and 1 file folder
General:
This property had a house built in 1940 and an overgrown garden of tropical plants, especially invasive strawberry guava trees when the current owners acquired it in 1970. In 1990 landscape architect James C. Hubbard created a half-acre back garden, removing the invasives and planting a fresh tropical garden. His design used swathes of grass to open up views of Ko' olau Mountains and the neighboring protected forest's bamboo and tropical trees including kukui or candlenut, employing the Japanese concept shakkei, or the art of borrowed scenery. In 2015 the owners built a contemporary style house for their multigenerational family that is sprawling and tiered and hugs the mountainside. They needed a new garden for the new house that would reflect their Asian heritage and Hawaiian location, designed by landscape architect Stephen F. Mechler.

The garden's gathering place is a large, covered patio with a lava rock wall. The plant colors are mainly green, white and blue from swathes of agapanthus and hydrangea from the earlier garden, and green and white in the front garden. There is a 70-year-old avocado tree from the original garden, an inherited lychee, Meyer lemon, vegetable and herb gardens in raised boxes to protect them from snails and slugs, and two varieties of taro that are protected from wild boar. Vegetables include green onion and beets; herbs include rosemary and basil. As the area receives 107 inches of rain each year the family does not irrigate nor do they use any synthetic chemicals in their gardens.

Generations of family are respected throughout the garden, exemplified by the lychee and inherited gray bricks that border a small Zen garden. Accessories include antique Chinese ceramic pots once used for wine and thousand- year Chinese eggs, now planted with orchid and lotus. A teardrop shaped patch of mondo grass represents and modernizes the Zen garden, usually comprised of stone. Hawaiian plants include native gingers, stumps from other gardens, and so-called canoe plants – species brought to the islands by early settlers. Seeds and cuttings from family, friends and other native island plants replace the invasives that once dominated the property.

Persons associated with the garden's design: James C. Hubbard (1990), Stephen F. Mechler (2016)
