United States of America -- Ohio -- Summit County -- Akron
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and garden plan.
General:
This half-acre garden takes its name from the 1834 cobblestone Greek Revival house on the property. Much of the landscaping was undertaken by former owners Fred and Margaret Albrecht Barton, who rescued and rehabilitated the property in the 1920s, when it was approximately two acres in size. Since that time the property has been reduced in size through subdivision. A low stone wall installed by the Bartons, for example, now encloses four houses. The current owner has developed a cottage garden with informal plantings. There are numerous stone paths and a brick path from the front door to the curb. There are two small patio areas built of millstones excavated on the property, as well as a large stone patio underneath a pergola. Major trees on the property include pin oak, American beech, and Norway spruce, while shrubs include oakleaf hydrangea, Hydrangea 'Annabelle', highbush cranberry, and Kalmia. Additional plants featured are Helleborus orientalis, peonies, Iberis, and other perennials, annuals, and bulbs.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: Fanny Ayres (former owner, ca. 1834); Margaret Albrecht Barton (former owner and gardener, ca. 1924-ca. 1961); Fred Barton (former owner, ca. 1924-1961); Albert Good (architect, 1924-1925); and Good and Wagner (architects, 1924-1925).

United States of America -- Ohio -- Summit -- Akron
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a features plan.
General:
The main feature of this property is a compact Japanese-style garden at the rear of the townhome built by the owners in 1991. Visits to Japan inspired the garden's creation in the approximately 0.06 acre space. Inspiration for the plant material came from the Portland Japanese Garden's trees and shrubs. A collection of 25 bonsai specimens represents 15 species with the oldest being 200 years of age. Other plantings include bamboo, a Japanese cherry tree, a Japanese maple, a Japanese white pine, a red pine, cedars, arborvita, azaleas, tree and herbaceous peonies, ferns, hosta, ornamental grasses, hydrangeas, an espaliered wisteria, and clematis.
Hardscapes, furnishings, and accents of the garden include two teak benches, a birdbath, a Pennsylvania bluestone patio with wrought iron table and chairs for dining, sculptures of cranes and a dragon, planter boxes, a Buddhist prayer bell, four stone Japanese lanterns and two smaller metal lanterns, a Zen garden with a coin basin and 20 ton of boulders. Water features include an upper pond containing a water iris that spills into a lower pond holding water lilies, water hyacinth and koi. Stairs made of marble gravel and granite pavers traverse the garden on its east side and lead through the garden from the dwelling to an exit gate. Other pathways in the garden are composed of stepping stones. There is a wooden fence with a gate and a small greenhouse.
At the front of the dwelling is a brick courtyard garden that the owners describe as English in inspiration. Foundation plantings and containers include seasonal annuals and herbs. Additional plant material includes ivy, azalea, rhododendron, hosta, Korean lilac and clematis. The courtyard was constructed around an old oak trunk that was struck by lightning. There is seating and accents including a sundial from Tuscany and a wall sculpture of the Greek god Bacchus.
Persons associated with the garden include: John Vittum (designer, 1991- ) and Wilson Lewis (garden installer, 1991).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, landscape plan, copy of architect's drawings, history of Roche De Boeuf, and brochure of Georgia and David K. Welles Sculpture Garden at Toledo Museum of Art.
General:
This tree-lined estate property, located on the banks of the Maumee River in Northwest Ohio, overlooks the historic abandoned "Roche de Boeuf Bridge" (a.k.a. "The Old Electric Bridge" and "The Interurban Bridge"). The bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The twelve spans of Roman aqueduct arches set the stage for this "Bridge House" property landscape, sculpture garden, and home design. The architect's plan incorporated the bridge's arched aqueduct design into the upper exterior of the East wing of the home, such that the residence appears to echo the bridge over the reflecting waters below. Carefully pruned little leaf linden trees in allees on either side of this wing also appear to duplicate the geometry of the bridge's arches. Exterior lighting includes illumination of the bridge at night by the homeowners, with spotlights located in trees on the property near the river. The property also features a maple allee at the property entrance; a grove of green and blue spruce trees; raised bed gardens; and library terrace plantings with herbs and hawthorn.
Eight sculptures were donated to the Toledo Museum of Art in 2001. They are located at the "Georgia and David K. Welles Sculpture Garden" on the lawn in front of the museum. Six sculptures were at Bridge House as of 2002.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: Hugh Newell Jacobsen, FAIA (architect and landscape architect, 1980s).

Ruth & Don's Garden at Braemar Farm (Broadview Heights, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Cuyahoga County -- Broadview Heights
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and a write-up of the garden.
General:
Ruth & Don's half-acre garden surrounds the old farmhouse on their 36-acre Braemar Farm property, which was established in 1853. The garden was started in 1963 with the decision to maintain the original farmland and woodlands guided by a plan from the U.S. Soil Conservation Service (now the Natural Resources Conservation Service). Additional acres of conifers and other trees were planted, old diseased weeping willow trees were removed, low sandstone walls and foundation plantings were added, and three additions were made to the house. In 1989 the owners worked with The Connelly Landscaping Company to add structure to the garden by using hardscaping made of brick, sandstone found on the property, and wood to define garden rooms, accommodate sloping terrain, and create spaces for outdoor living. A small stone pond houses frogs and goldfish, an old millstone is at the center of an herb garden, and a large stone well cover found on the property is used as a landing for a set of stairs.
The garden's style is informal English with three deep borders planted with perennials, foliage, and grasses, shrubs and trees. There is a vegetable garden on the edge of the agricultural sector, near one of the two old barns on the property. The ornamental plants provide continuous color throughout the growing season, views from every window of the house, and meet the owners' desire to reduce maintenance. The owner is a trustee of the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Alfred and Ann Wiltshire and members of the Wiltshire family (former owners, 1853 - 1949); Lester and Jesse Hanck (former owners, 1949 - 1963); Ed Connelly, The Connelly Landscaping Company (landscape designer, circa 1990).
