Scope and Contents:

General:
Little Oatlands has a two-acre formal garden originally designed in the mid-1930's by the owners David and Margaret Finley, and the garden rooms, allées, stone walls, gazebo, statues and sculptures have been maintained with few changes for 80 years. The first garden room inside the main gate was installed in 1935 and has four parterres bordered with boxwood around a central fountain, originally a sundial. The original English boxwood borders have been replaced with Korean and American box cultivars in this and the other three rooms. Three more garden rooms were developed in 1937: two bisecting cedar allées that lead to a gazebo set over the stone wall, a flowering cherry allée that leads to a wall fountain, and another room with a large planted urn, a statue of St. Francis Assisi and a swath formerly used as a bowling green bordered by statues of the four seasons. A swimming pool was added in 1952. Boxwood hedges define the rooms within the perimeter of stone walls and ornamental iron gates provide entry to the different rooms. Some of the statues and fountains were copied from classical Italian pieces, and the gazebo was copied from one in England. Original sculptures include "Suzanna at the Bath" by Paul Manship and "The Little Shepherd Boy" by Walter Hancock. In addition to the main house there is a guest cottage on the property. Recent work in the gardens includes replanting long borders of ephemeral spring bulbs under the flowering cherry allée.
In the early 18th century this country house was a tenant farmer's stone cottage on the 63,093 acre estate known as Oatlands Plantation. In 1887 the Carter family was forced to sell the large property but continued to own a few cottages and 180 acres, and called it Little Oatlands. Members of the Eustis family have owned this property since 1927 and have enlarged this house and converted the Carter's vegetable garden into the existing formal garden. In 1965 Oatlands mansion, garden and more than 250 surrounding acres were deeded to the National Trust for Historic Preservation with easements for the family.
Persons associated with the garden include George Carter (former owner, 1798-1847); Mrs. George Carter (former owner, 1847-1897); George Carter II (former owner, 1897-1926); Mr. and Mrs. William Corcoran Eustis (former owner, 1927-1932); David E. Finley, Jr. (1890-1977) and Margaret Morton Eustis Finley (1903-1977) (former owners, 1932-1977); Dick and Joan Williams (former owners, 1977-2014); Paul Manship (sculptor, 1947); Francesco Righetti (sculptor); Walter Hancock (sculptor, c. 1960); Margaret Eustis Finley (sculptor, c. 1930)

General:
Previous owners had gardened this one-fifth acre property with a 1939 Dutch Colonial revival house, and some elements from earlier gardens have been retained by the current owners, including a Japanese maple, cleyera, deutzia, hemlock and Osmanthus, or relocated including a peony, hosta, primroses, snowdrops and Spanish bluebells. Otherwise in 1985 the gardens were overgrown, dying or filled with weeds. After clearing the owners planted a small herb garden and some flowering shrubs but had issues with drainage. They also became interested in boxwood species and cultivars and have gone on to assemble a collection of more than 30 varietals including sports. They hired a stonemason to replace the concrete front walk with soapstone and have continued to employ the artisan Toru Oba to lay a new patio, build a dry stone bed that aids drainage, lay paths, install rockwork including huge blocks that serve as benches or a table, and many other projects. The overgrown foundation beds in front of the house were replaced by four varieties of boxwood: diamond parterres now filled with ferns and taller border plants.

English boxwood declined and were replaced with layers of specimen boxwood and shade perennials. Garden beds were designed to incorporate the boxwood collection along with flowering trees, bulbs and perennials, some propagated by the owners or shared by associates. Zoysia grass was planted for a more durable lawn, gravel or grass paths were replaced with soapstone pavers. The owners have planted pocket gardens in nooks including a bog garden for pitcher plants, sundews and calapogon orchids (grass pinks) in a spot that was hard to mow. A trellis built from tree limbs supports crossvine and yellow jessamine. There still is an herb garden below the back porch with lemon balm, sage, oregano, chives, tarragon, basil, lavender, and mints contained in a strawberry jar. Persons associated with the garden include: Edward F. Gilley (former owner, 1939-1950); Gordon and Mildred Wiley (former owners, 1950-1977); Robert and Tanya Artinian (former owners, 1978-1979); Ellen Thackara (former owner, 1979-1985); Henry F., Jr. and Melinda Byrd Frierson (owners, 1985- ); Sigrid Harriman (garden designer, 1997); Toru Oba (stonemason and sculptor, 1991-2012)

Place:
Teasdale Garden (Portland, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Multnomah -- Portland
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and feature plans.
General:
Located on one-third acre, the Teasdale Garden fills a wedge-shaped corner lot comprised of lush plantings, garden sculpture, entertaining and sports areas, a koi pond and a rockery with a waterfall. The garden was redesigned in 1996 with the assistance of landscape architect Brian Bainnson. Prior to the re-design, the 1924 property included a rock retaining wall, a concrete reflecting pool, a mature tulip tree, overgrown rhododendrons and English laurel. The brick path to the front door was only two feet wide and there was little to indicate where the front door was located. Major improvements were made including creating garden rooms on different levels with painted cedar fences establishing boundaries. New brickwork added a dining deck next to the house, enlarged existing patios and widened the front walk, and with the addition of steps and another patio turned an original concrete reflecting pool into a garden room with a water garden stocked with koi. After overgrown rhododendrons and English laurel were removed a quatrefoil knot garden was installed and planted with roses. Topiary trees, columns, obelisks, gazing globes, and many pieces of sculpture by artists Jill Toberson and Marta Farris add wit and definition to the garden rooms.
A small adjacent property previously owned by the city of Portland was annexed and now is a vegetable garden planted in raised beds. There are plans to add chickens and a chicken coop
Persons associated with the garden include Harry F., William H., and Imogene R. Morrow (former owners, 1934-1981); Sherry and Douglas Fir Woods (former owners, 1983-1991); Mark and Gay Santos (former owners, 1991-1996); Brian Bainnson ASLA (landscape architect); Tarek Ghebllawi (garden pruning); Jill Torberson (garden sculpture); Marta Farris (garden sculpture).

General:
In 1970 the owners built their house on two and one-quarter acres in a new subdivision on land that had been agricultural, and their growing family played sports in the yard. In the late 1980s the owners began changing the landscape and house to reflect their interests, especially after studying English gardens at Cambridge University, England, and many visits to the recreated colonial gardens in Williamsburg and Monticello in Virginia. The property was planned and planted as a whole, with formal gardens including a kitchen garden replicating the Taliaferro-Cole garden in Williamsburg with its multi-level picket fence. The garden inside the fence is rectilinear with an armillary sphere in the center watched over by the sculpture "The Dog" by Glenna Goodacre. The straight-edged beds are planted in flowers and vegetables, espaliered apple and pear trees and pollarded linden trees along the fence. This part of the property is conceived on a short axis that ends in an obelisk. The long axis of the plan starts at the street and traverses through an allée of crabapple trees towards a reproduction 18th century statue called "Taste." An outbuilding that is used for storage copies the design of a colonial kitchen. A tennis court is flanked by fruit orchards, and an alpine trough garden leads to the garage.
The paths in the fenced garden are comprised of silica and brick, which along with tall hedges, create a micro-climate in the courtyard that is ten degrees warmer than outside the fence. Thus the planting season starts earlier and last longer, and species such as southern magnolia can be grown. Although most of the construction and garden ornaments reflect the colonial style of this garden there are two Lutyens style benches inside the fenced garden from the Arts & Crafts period, and a brightly painted cottage Windsor chair for resting. Rose pots, painted red, are hoisted on top of poles add height and whimsy to the garden.
To keep the garden looking fresh big plants are replaced, especially with one that have sentimental value to the owners. The garden has been photographed, written about and studied by horticultural groups, and the owners are active in local gardening organizations.
Persons associated with the garden include: Tracy and Maryann Griswold (former owners, 1925-1967); Glenna Goodacre (sculptress, 1999).
