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- ).

Cincinnati -- Garden of Beth and Jay Karp Garden

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Garden of Beth and Jay Karp (Cincinnati, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Hamilton County -- Cincinnati
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and other information.
General:
Located on three acresthe garden is divided into smaller gardens with different themes. Garden designer Elizabeth Karp began the project by erecting seven brick pillars joined by four foot boxwood hedges on the north and south side of the entryway that enclose a blue and white garden. Continuing around to the rear of the residence, a patio garden room was created by building two mirror English-style patios with sitting walls featuring numerous moveable containers. A stone pathway leads to another room of naturalized plantings grown behind a box hedge. On the other side of the back patio is a parterre with a pathway around a knot garden. Due to seasonal standing water on the south side, drainage ditches were dug that eventually became a winding U-shaped stone path next to multi-level ponds with a wide grass lane and gazebo. Around the property are several other garden rooms planted with fruit trees, vegetables and herbs, ferns, roses, hostas, hellebores and conifers.
Amongst the gardens are several sculptures, statues, benches, pergolas and fountains, a sundial, urns, a weather vane, wood chip and stone trails. The property is surrounded by nylon deer fences, shrubs, trees, Norway Spruce, and Alberta Spruce.
Persons associated with the site include: Elizabeth Karp (garden designer).
