Michael Garden (Charleston, West Virginia)

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, planting lists, features map, planting plans, deeds, plats, historical photographs and other additional documentation.
General:
Located on approximately one acre in Charleston, West Virginia, the Michael Garden was originally part of a 21 acre property purchased by Mr. and Mrs. James R. Thomas in 1902. The estate included a large house and surrounding woodlands. Mrs. Thomas established formal garden beds on the grounds and planted daffodils in the woodland areas. The next owners, Mr. and Mrs. Settle, built the current home on the property and installed hardscape. Rachel T. Settle took pride in integrating elements of local history, adding a variety of native flowering trees, shrubs and a large flower bed. The current owners have built on the strong structure of the property, being careful to meld improvements with existing features. Their work includes installing additional hardscape and designing new garden areas emphasizing native plants.
Each gardener linked to the Michael Garden has worked with the particular challenges and benefits that come with the Kanawha Valley's terrain. Their efforts produced cultivated lawns and sculpted gardens integrated with the naturally sloping, rocky landscape. The woodlands contain mature deciduous and conifers; shrubs of rhododendron and holly; and native bulbs, plants and wildflowers. Walls, stairs and walkways on the grounds were made from the brick and stone of public properties demolished in the 1930s and 1940s. Among other features are a stream and man-made pond, seating areas and custom ironwork. The Michael Garden's curving garden bed and other gardens contain a variety of herbaceous ornamentals and woody plants, including flowering tulip magnolia and kousa dogwood.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. James R. Thomas (former owners, 1902-1937); Rachel Tompkins Settle (former owner, 1938-1985); L.T. Bingston (architect, 1938-1939); Rebecca Trafton (garden designer, 1986); Bill Mills (garden designer, 1992).

General:
Although the 1949 white clapboard house was sited far back from the road one of the principle aims of the garden design for this approximately one acre property has been to provide privacy from the road and from neighboring properties. Beginning work in 1988 the owners developed new garden areas by: adding hardscape features including a deck behind the house and newly-designed curved wall patios in front of the house, grading to direct water run-off away from the house and garden beds, re-purposing a small former playhouse as a potting shed at the end of a new bluestone path, and installing an irrigation system. Then more extensive plantings could be installed, focusing on creating four seasons of interest, using more native plants, attracting songbirds, butterflies and wildlife, developing a seamless tapestry of all the garden areas, and providing views of the vernacular garden from the house, patios, covered porch and deck. The view from the street was also considered and a timber terraced perennial bed was installed on the street side of the shrub screen bed.
A small oval perennial bed in front of the house was enlarged to wrap around the side of the house, forming an L-shaped shrub, rose and mixed perennial garden. Pansies provide winter bloom, followed by spring bulbs, peonies, spireas and iris. In summer and fall perennials include day-lilies, bee balm, hibiscus and Shasta daisies. Shrub roses were added to the old roses from previous plantings that were re-positioned. Another smaller L-shaped bed along the side driveway includes a tower of stacked large flower pots that are planted with seasonal annuals. A shade border follows the curve of the other patio and because this side of the house is downhill and wetter plantings include red twig dogwoods and marsh marigolds. Two large oasis flower beds were installed around trees in the front lawn, a crimson king maple and a mature oak, with hellebores for winter, and narcissus, ferns, hostas, and Japanese anemones for successive blooms and foliage.
The roadside garden has a screen of native cedars, forsythias, hydrangeas and lilacs, under-planted with hostas, perennial hibiscus and daffodils. A white garden that can be viewed across the lawn from the house at the end of the day includes a white flowering redbud tree, white bleeding heart, woodland phlox, wood asters, candytuft and tiarella. The potting shed garden was overgrown with shrubs and vines that were cleared away, to be replaced by transplanted rhododendrons and a tree peony, perennials and hydrangeas as well as the bluestone path, a native stone wall, and a bench. At the back of the house the entire back yard was regraded and had drains installed, the latticework under the deck was replaced with planters, and a stone patio was built for sitting in the perennial and shrub garden with roses that is bordered by boxwood. At the back end of the property there is a wooded area with a ravine.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles and Mary Frances Brooks (former owners, 1947-1954); George and Patty Jones Jr. (former owners, 1954-1987); Lynne Schwartz-Barker (landscape designer, 2002-2015); Mark Blumenstein (sculptor); Jeff Fetty (sculptor).

General:
"The gardens at Kanawha Salines are particularly interesting as the product of female owners Nelle Coleman Alderson Dickinson and her daughter, Mary Price Dickinson Ratrie, as well as female designers and gardeners." The gardens include an immense American Elm, planted by Mrs. Ratrie as a child and a parterre with box hedges, rosebeds, and herbaceous perennial borders."
"Salt was produced here from 1817 until 1945, and shipped by the Kanawha River and later rail as far as New Orleans and Pittsburgh. The farm fields pasture a small herd of Belted Galloway cattle and a number of 'family' horses and ponies. Mrs. Ratrie's garden center and nursery, 'Terra Salis', is located on the edge of the farm."
"The property features a glorious vista of wooded hills, another of the Kanawha River, and an all-white pond garden reached by an alleĢe of Prunus campanulata 'Okame'. There is a viburnum collection of 16 species/varieties; a 60-foot hemerocallis and narcissus border; several beds of species roses and syringa varieties; many specimen trees, both deciduous and evergreen; and a terrace, overlooking tennis courts, sheltered by a 40-foot pergola covered with wisteria, floribunda, and clematis. The house and outbuildings, including a 'garden' building, barns, storehouses, and cottages, are part of a historic property in continuous ownership by the Dickinson family since the early 1800's."
Persons associated with the property include: William Dickinson, Sr., (former owner, 1840-1863); William Dickinson, Jr. (former owner, 1863-1865); Mr. and Mrs. John Quincy Dickinson (former owners, 1865-1896); Mr. and Mrs. Charles C.
