Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, detailed information about the garden's plants, photocopies of articles about the garden, background details from and about the owners, and additional information.
General:
Located on three acres in Memphis, Tennessee, the Bickie McDonnell Garden is comprised of a main lawn, herbaceous border, formal rose and pool gardens, vegetable garden, and upper and lower woodland gardens. Before the house was built or any planting could begin the site was cleared of overgrown privet and mulberry vines, only the white oak and hickory trees were left in place. In 1980 Memphis artist and landscape designer Tom Pellett working with the owner initiated a plan for the property that emphasized the dramatic vistas and discreet gardens. More than just one large garden, the owner has created a series of gardens that merge seemlessly one to the next. Native varieties of wildflowers, trees and shrubs are featured, and river rocks, boulders, old cobblestones and bricks gathered in the region were repurposed as structural elements of the garden.
Dramatic vistas define this garden. Pea gravel and brick walkways, stone paths, and a dry creek bed lead from vista to vista. Hardwood trees, indigenous to the area and the most striking characteristic of the landscape, provide structure and frame long views. Several sculptures are featured in garden rooms, as well as Corinthian columns. A dry creek bed spanned by a wooden bridge is filled with fieldstone and boulders from Arkansas. The main garden paths are comprised of pea gravel edged in brick, with a brick walkway to access the formal rose garden and gazebo.
Persons associated with the garden include Tom Pellett (landscape designer, 1980-present); Jasper Jones (gardener, 1980-present); Oscar Menzev (architect, date unknown).

Scope and Contents:

General:
The foursquare house on this ¾-acre property was built circa 1908 by the U.S. Army corps of engineers to be used by one of two lockmasters, preferably with large families, employed to maintain busy locks 24/7 on the Allegheny River. The federal government provided some landscaping in the 1930's and 1940's, and there is photographic evidence of a vegetable garden. There were mature white pine, catalpa, river birch, ash and silver maple and stands of invasive Japanese knotweed when the current owners began developing gardens in 2001. The entrance garden behind a nine-foot tall wooden fence was built first, with an arched wooden bridge over a bubbling waterfall and fish pond with koi, shaded by two river birches, a dwarf Japanese maple, oakleaf hydrangea, azaleas, and an understory of Solomon's seal, Japanese painted fern, hellebores and hosta. The shabby chic garden is more formal with intersecting boxwood hedges edging beds of flowering shrubs, roses, bulbs and perennials. The focal point is a two-level cement fountain set in another koi pond with a nearby statue of St. Francis of Assisi. A collection of stone statues of Buddha and a hot tub, with shade perennials and a view of the Allegheny River comprise the Buddha bed. The dam wall garden features an arbor created from fallen branches, stone steps descending 20 feet with ground cover, ferns and daylilies planted on the hillside, a fire pit on the riverbank but no vegetation on the dredged river sand and gravel.
On the main level there is a swimming pool inside a pool house/greenhouse with a retractable roof. Its shady garden has ferns, liriope, spotted dead nettle, ornamental grasses, heuchera, hosta, Joe Pye weed, a meandering stream and another pond with koi and ducks. The pool house walk has a wisteria-covered pergola and birdhouses. The gathering garden has a meditation hut cantilevered over the riverbank with plantings of hydrangea, mountain laurel, hosta, hellebores, astilbe, bellflowers, Japanese anemone and blueberry bushes shaded by white pine. The sunny farm or potager is comprised of raised beds separated by gravel walkways planted with perennial flowers, herbs, vegetables and rhubarb from grandmother's garden. Additional outbuildings include a chicken house with chickens free to roam, a duck house and a shed with solar panels that provide electricity for these buildings.
Choderwood is located between a defunct short line railroad and the Allegheny River, an urban oasis in a formerly industrial location, and is a certified wildlife habitat. The owners have participated in garden tours and host events as well as lodgers on two riverboats.

Place:
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Allegheny -- Pittsburgh
The Speyer Garden (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
Scope and Contents:
22 digital images (2017-2018) and 1 file folder.
General:
The Speyer Garden is a mature quarter acre strolling garden with five rooms begun in 1971 on worn out former farmland that had a shingled house and a few trees. The soil was amended with compost every year, specimen plants were obtained and the rooms were devised to create habitats suitable for the diverse collection. The Asian inspired front garden features trees that include Japanese snowbell hanging over a small lily pond, hinoki cypress, Leland cypress, crabapple, a weeping Norway spruce, dwarf Scotch poodle pine and a Kousa dogwood as well as a stone pagoda. A wooden gate leads to the next garden for herbs, prairie flowers and flowering shrubs that attract butterflies including beautyberry and viburnum, two 60-year-old rhubarb plants and a climbing thorn less blackberry. The blue garden is entered through a rose covered arbor, named for three blue atlas cedars along with hinoki cypress, several Japanese maples, three tree hydrangeas and a small waterfall over two small ponds. There is a small wooden bridge onto the deck that overlooks the main garden comprised of flower and shrub island beds with may apple, cobra lily, various epimediums, and Japanese woodland peonies. Trees and shrubs in the center garden room include Japanese maple and a dawn redwood that shades the rear garden where there are roses, hydrangeas, dogwood, a statue of Hermes, a frog fountain and another pond.

Plants in the understory include heuchera, varieties of hosta, several types of irises, hellebore, poppy, fern, bleeding heart, hardy begonias and ground orchids, sweet William, astilbe, oxalis, and bunchberry dogwood. Winding pebble or wood chip paths, stepping stones and small bridges, covered pergolas and arbor and wooden gates between garden rooms along with the density of plant material, hidden benches and several ponds make the urban garden seem much larger.

Persons associated with the garden include: Silvia Speyer (owner, 1971- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan with plant names, a plant list, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This garden has been under continual development by the owners since 1979, although some features, such as the rear brick patio, had been added by the property's previous owners. It is formal in the sense that all the plants are manicured and elegant, but the curving lines used throughout prevent the garden from being stiff. Landscaping in the front yard has been enhanced by the addition of a flowering crab and Korean fir, as well as various shrubs and spring bulbs. A brick pathway through perennial beds highlights the south side of the house. In 1985 a gazebo and curving brick pathway through the back lawn were added. The path curves past shrubs, a rose garden, a teak bench, and an English chimney pot, continuing through the gazebo and past hosta beds (there are more than 35 varieties of hosta in the garden). The brick path ends at a wooden bridge built over a dry streambed surrounded by plantings of ferns, hosta, and shade-loving perennials. On the other side of the bridge a flagstone path continues, passing a playhouse as it returns to the patio. Two ponds and a waterfall were built in 1990, and the waterfall can be heard by anyone sitting on the patio. Adjacent to the patio, the ponds are surrounded by plantings of spirea, hosta, yews, euonymus, and ferns. Many large pots of exotic and annual flowers are scattered around the patio, as are numerous wrought iron tables and chairs. A brick wall set with a wrought iron gate separates the yard and patio from the driveway. This garden's mature plantings and shade trees make it a cool oasis.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Daniel Gray (former owner, 1931-1937); Norman Sample (former owner, 1937-1957); Peter Peterson (former owner, 1957-1964); Rex Clemons (former owner, 1964-1978); Ted Pearson, Jr. (former owner, 1978-1979); Jeffery Mink (landscape architect, 1991 and 1999); Brian Kinghorn (landscape architect, 1989); and Addie Kinghorn (horticulturist, gardener, and landscape architect, 1995 to date).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
Broad flower beds of perennials and annuals bring color and romance to the ocean side location of Cliff Garden, a seven-acre property atop an 80-foot drop to the Atlantic Ocean. The flower beds surround an ovoid lawn that features an antique marble table from India. The garden is entered from the circular driveway by crossing a wooden bridge and going through an Asian-inspired pergola. In addition to the main flower garden there is a cutting garden next to a garage, grass walks around the house leading to the cliff that are bordered with beds of shrubs and flowering shrubs, woodlands, and naturalized plantings in the center of the driveway in front of the house.
The garden was established in 2003 with the assistance of landscape architect Patrick Chassé (ASLA). Hardscaping includes stone stairs leading down from the house to the garden, benches, and large native boulders amidst the flower beds. An electrified deer fence protects the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Dennis Bracale of Gardens by Design (landscape designer, 2004-2009); Patrick Chassé, ASLA (landscape designer, 2003); Jeff Gammelin of Freshwater Stone (stone mason, 2002).

General:
The Turner Lynch Garden is located on a 3.08 acre property in the historic district of Peachtree Heights Park. The architecture firm Carrère & Hastings planned the district's street layout, a curvilinear design that incorporates the natural terrain of the region. In keeping with this plan, a long winding driving driveway leads to the Mediterranean style house which is sited at the crest of a gently sloping hill. While preserving the bones of the original landscape, the Turner Lynch Garden features a series of garden rooms that have been developed by the present owner. These include a formal rose garden, a Japanese woodland garden, a conifer garden, and a children's playhouse garden. Original to the property, a perennial garden dates back to the early 1920's when it was termed a "round garden." The four quadrants of the garden, which mirror each other, have been enlarged to accommodate a larger planting area, and annual plants are added to provide color in late summer.
The front of the house features a large fescue lawn framed with border plantings offering the architectural features of the house as the focal point of that view. A terrace at the back of the house features a knot garden that overlooks a reflecting pool below, with a view of the perennial garden beyond. From the terrace and the perennial garden the sloping property continues down to a wooded area featuring rock walls and tile paths that wind through the trees and a recirculating stream and three ponds accented with small wooden bridges and stone benches.
Persons associated with the garden include: Harold O. Rogers (former owner, 1923-1927); J.W. (Wick) Goldsmith (former owner, 1927-1928); Clarence Haverty (former owner, 1928-1986); A. Emmett Barnes IV (former owner, 1986-1989); Pringle and Smith (architects, 1921); and T.C. Wesley (contractor/builder, 1922/1923).
