Place:
Barbara's Garden (Arlington, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Arlington County
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes an information sheet, a features plan, a slide plan, a slide list and a plant list.
General:
Located in the suburbs of the Washington, D.C. metro area in Virginia, the brick rambler on the property dates to the 1950s. The current owner re-designed the garden in 1998 and the backyard garden redesigned in 2005 by the owner. Barbara's garden achieves the contemporary urban ideal of low-maintenance and functional beauty.
The house is situated at the top of a small hill with a sloping lawn which leads down to the sidewalk and street. The not-so-secret terraced front garden is practically maintenance-free and a stone retaining wall gives the front garden structure. A large crepe myrtle and two dogwoods anchor the front garden along with cherry laurel, azaleas and ornamental grasses with perennials for seasonal color. The backyard garden suits the owner who wants a serene beautiful space for entertaining and outdoor dining plus space for her small dog.
Garden features include a large deck for dining, a small lawn area with a garden border planted with trees and perennials, a small shed and an enclosed vegetable and herb garden.
Related Materials:
Barbara's Garden related holdings consist of 1 folder (16 digital images)

McDonald Garden, formerly known as.
General:
Since 1940 the gardens of this 1.75 acre property have been designed and filled with unusual specimen trees and flowering shrubs, then redesigned by a second owner equally committed to plant collecting who wanted to maintain the early gardens as much as possible. The initial design included a broad brick terrace behind the house that overlooked a sweeping lawn bordered by beds containing perennials, shrubs and trees. A rock garden marked the transition from the cultivated gardens to a native woodlands on the steep slope to the Willamette River. Behind the brick wall along the street there was a hedge of arborvitae and rhododendron had been planted along the brick wall at the far end of the terrace. A glass and brick gazebo stood in the front courtyard, topped with a hummingbird weather vane by sculptor Keith Jellum. When the property changed hands in 2002 all these features were changed too: the overgrown arborvitae were replaced with large-leafed boxwood, too tall rhododendron that blocked the view from the house were relocated, the crumbling gazebo was removed, and the hummingbird weathervane was mounted on a stand in an island bed of seasonal plantings where it can spin with the wind. The mature specimen trees including paper bark maple, Ponderosa pine, several varieties of magnolia, Garry oak, dawn redwood and a wheel tree remained but new beds were designed and planted with hellebores, hosta, fuchsias, clematis, rhododendrons, peonies, dwarf conifers and arum varieties. A new shade garden called the grotto replaced failing grass, a new green house and four bin composting center were built. The rock garden was augmented with steps and additional plantings, and wide gravel paths were laid for touring as well as working in the perennials beds that border the lawn.
Originally the 1.3 acres that were cultivated were conceived as parkland and featured rare plant material. A garden room in a warmer microclimate known as the Chilean garden was kept and included a windmill palm, swamp cypress and other semi-tropical plants; a crepe myrtle and pomegranate were espaliered on the garage wall along one side. Three copper bowl fountains of Greco-Roman design placed in the front and side courtyards were connected to a recirculating water pump in the basement of the house. The brick walls surrounding the terrace were perforated, a signature design of the original landscape architects Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver and the gazebo built on a curved brick wall in the front court was a stand-out feature. The parkland was planted so there would be open views from the house and terrace of Mount Saint Helens and the Willamette River.
Persons associated with the property include Sir James and Lady McDonald (former owners, 1940-2002); Susan and John Bates (former owners, 2002-2015); Elizabeth Lord (1887-1976) and Edith Schryver (1901-1984) (landscape architects, 1940); Ernest Tucker (landscape architect, 1977); Marsha Matschek (landscape designer, 1975- );Clark Matschek (landscape architect, 1996); Conrad Hahn (head gardener, 1950); Ernest Meyer (architect, 1942); Charles Voorhis (architect, 1977); John Storrs (architect, 1960); Echo Cole (head gardener, 1996- ); Gilbert Meigs (engineer, 1978); Jay Wesley Miner (garden designer and head gardener, 2006- ); Withey Price (garden design, 2004); Megan Galaher (garden designer, 2014); Martha Schneikert (steel garden structures, 2006); John Buttrell (tree pruning, 2006- ); Blake Thomas (tree pruning, 2006- ).

General:
This 85-acre property and its gardens have been under development since 1979 by both the original owner and her architect grandson, the current owner. The house, completed in 1979, is styled after French country farmhouses. Because of the advanced age of the original owner, one of the primary objectives of the garden was to allow her to view it from the house without actually venturing out into it. This was accomplished by creating long axial views deep into the landscape through a variety of garden spaces. The house is on a hilltop and the gardens terrace down the hill from the house. The entry hall of the house is in line with the most significant landscape feature, the meadow, which stretches from the house to the wood's edge. Additional axial views from the house include one framing Bald Peak, the highest peak that can be seen from the house, while other axial views can only be appreciated while in the garden. These various views are framed and aligned by using evergreens trimmed like columns and low walls to edge and direct the eyes through the garden. Architectural elements at the end of each axis provide focal points. In deference to the style of the house, gardens close to it are formal and "continental" in design. Moving away from the house, the gardens loosen up and relate better to the woods that surround the site. Within the overall evergreen structure are perennial gardens punctuated by ornamental shrubs and trees selected for spring and fall color. Annuals are used sparingly in containers where the soil and water can be better controlled. The current owner continues to use the garden as a laboratory to explore new ideas and to improve on less successful decisions made in the past. Overall, this is aided by the remarkable climate and good soil conditions of Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Persons associated with the garden include: Blanche Dimmit Miller (former owner, 1978-1990).

A 1922 Tudor-style house with three acres, listed on the National Historic Register, required extensive renovation by the current owners to preserve the original craftsmanship. The grounds were in need of reconditioning as well, including an original Japanese garden whose pond had to be re-dug, rocks repositioned, and plantings restored with more than 40 different Japanese maple trees. Landscape architect Craig Kiest's (ASLA) plan includes garden rooms, paths and hardscape, described by the owner as a classic design that features their plant collections. A circular driveway in front of the house surrounds a boxwood knot garden punctuated with container plantings. The uphill walk to the garden runs along a wall with espaliered camellias and is overlooked by a balcony for viewing the knot garden that has a wrought iron railing assembled from old gates found on the property. A serpentine rose border with more than one hundred plants is a colorful connector along the back driveway between the house and garage. An orchard, perennial bed, soccer field and upper lawn are arrayed between the house and the streets that border this corner lot.
Several bluestone terraces with stone steps and balustrades accommodate the terrain behind the house and lead to a formal garden that is on an axis with the dining room. A pergola planted with wisteria japonica crosses the entrance to the formal garden. In this garden surrounded by a hedge of holly there are boxwood parterres centered by a circular patch of lawn with an enormous restored stone planter with white Iceland roses and white alyssum in the summer. Large cast iron planters on bluestone platforms contain Japanese maples. The formal garden terminates in a seating area backed by a semi-circle of four columns and an old planting of English holly. Other features include a grotto with granite semi-circular steps and a grindstone, a wall fountain with a bronze frog, and an Italianate cobblestone patio with beds of hydrangea. Frogs and dragonflies are recurring motifs in the iron hardware on the buildings and in garden ornaments. Flowering vines and container gardens, climbing roses, and a rose and wild geranium parterre add color to the vigorous greenery that grows in this favorable climate.
The Japanese garden features the colorful Japanese maple tree collection and a pond stocked with koi. Additional trees from the earlier garden include copper beech, gingko, and Japanese umbrella pine. There is a raised vegetable garden for berries, grapes, pumpkins and artichokes with a custom made wooden fence, and wooded areas underplanted with hosta and other shade-tolerant perennials. A large lawn bisecting these forests leads to a rectangular reflecting pool with a colonnade that was found buried in an old laurel hedge on the property and restored.
Persons associated with the garden include Percy Smith family (former owners, 1922-1994); Craig Kiest, ASLA (landscape architect, 1997-1999); Dave Sexton (gardener, 1999-present)
