Ormond Beach -- Sea Oats

Landscape architect:

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Sea Oats (Ormond Beach, Fla.)
United States of America -- Florida -- Volusia County -- Ormond Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet and a site plan.
General:
Sea Oats materialized out of a large oceanfront lot with natural and undisturbed flora, though much of the beach had been excavated for purposes of building a large condominium, which never occurred. The current owners bought the property in the early 1990s. They restored the native coastal environment, while adding some amenities such as a pool and cabana. The buildings were built in the the dunescape with the natural protection of a dense cover of native foliage. A hidden drive of crushed oyster shells lined by saw palmetto, bay, and oak trees leads to the house. Winding trails with yucca, sea grapes, carissas and other plants surround the house. Water use is meant to be minimal and restricted to occasional hand watering in cases of extreme drought. The University of Florida in Gainesville recognized the property with an environmental award.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Resolution Trust Corp. (former owners, ? - 1994); Ron Urbaniak (landscape architect, 1997); and Ken McKee (architect, 1997).

Sea Oats related holdings consist of 1 folder (6 35 mm. slides)

Wallbridge Garden (Millburn, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Essex County -- Millburn
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and write-ups of the property's history.
General:
The Wallbridge Garden, approximately one acre, is located at the entrance to Taylor Park in Millburn, New Jersey. The garden is an ongoing community project of the Short Hills Garden Club. The garden features hybrid tea and grandiflora roses planted in concentric rings in wedge-shaped beds hedged with boxwood. At the center is a gazebo, with paths radiating out between and around the beds. Naturalized plantings of spring bulbs, ferns and sweet woodruff, specimen trees, yew hedges and lawns comprise the rest of Wallbridge Garden.
The garden is named for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Wallbridge, whose bequest provided the initial funds for the garden club's renovation. Planning for the garden began circa 1980 during a drought that limited water use, and a trickle hose system was installed in the rose beds that uses non-potable water stored in a tank. The rose beds are mulched with shredded leaves collected in the park.
An earlier garden at that location centered on a bandstand that had become derelict and was removed. Dead trees, deteriorating plants and wire waste baskets were removed, and sturdy wooden benches and trash receptacles were installed. Paths that had been blacktopped were revived with a covering of pea gravel set with hot oil. The original Wallbridge bequest has been supplemented through fund-raising activities of the garden club.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. John Taylor (former owners prior to 1924); Township of Millburn, New Jersey (owner, May 1924 to present); Robert B. Heintz (architect of the gazebo, February 1981); Short Hills Garden Club (garden designers, planters and maintainers, 1981 to present).

Place:
The Oakes-Howard Garden on Fishers Island (Fishers Island, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Suffolk -- Fishers Island
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, historical information and images of Fishers Island, and photocopies of garden and building plans.
General:
The 5.27 acre island property has been owned by one family since the mid-1960s, the clapboard beach house was finished for occupancy in 1972, and since then the house and garden have been modified and expanded. The original flower garden had four sections of perennials and annuals enclosed by a wire fence to keep out rabbits. Red poppies grew wherever the seeds landed. When a bedroom wing was added to the square house the flower beds were relocated to two large raised beds now planted each year with colorful annuals. Foundation plantings include trimmed boxwood, hydrangeas, butterfly bush, beach rose, day lilies, rose of Sharon, and ornamental grasses that are suited to the island's climate. Garden work is kept to a minimum because the house is rented during the summer and the island has water use restrictions. When a house was built nearby that could have spoiled the view a berm was built and planted, and West Harbor of Long Island Sound can still be seen from the decks and from a cupola on the house that has a 360 degree view.
Persons associated with the garden include Elinor Righter Oakes (former owner, 1965-2001); James Volney Righter (architect, 1971-1999); Race Rock Garden Company (garden design, planting and maintenance, 1971- ); Z&S Construction (house and deck maintenance, 1971- ).
