Riverview Ranch (Wilson, Wyoming)
United States of America -- Wyoming -- Teton County -- Wilson
Scope and Contents:
27 digital images (2010-2017) and 1 file folder.
General:
The property is 325 acres consisting of pasture, hayfields, a conservation area, and homestead with the Snake River flowing through it. The home was built in 1986 with the surrounding gardens and greenhouse in the original plan. The location dictated the "wagon wheel" design of the kitchen garden located inside a semi-circle between the driveway and greenhouse. The kitchen garden features a wooden fence, radiating stone paths from a central circular bed, raised vegetable beds, a small production greenhouse, and flower beds. Despite the short season and harsh Wyoming winters at an elevation of 6300 ft., the garden has proven to be a successful. The garden is designed to be viewed from the deck off the kitchen. Stone steps lead down to the greenhouse and garden. The greenhouse is used in the winter to house heirloom geraniums, ivy, a jade plant, a few orchids from Florida, and to start seedlings for the vegetable garden in the spring. The vegetables are planted in raised beds to discourage moles and voles and cloches are added as needed for frost and to deter chipmunks.
The contents of the garden has concentrated on flowers and vegetables that do well in Wyoming. The root crops and lettuces are very successful in this climate. Annuals are grown from seed collected in the fall as well as some new varieties each year. However, the owners also grow peonies and lilacs from relatives in Vermont as well as daffodils, Sweet Williams, and some special geraniums. The Hens and Chicks which grow between the stepping stones came from the owners' woodland property in New York. Also many of the spring bulbs were gifts from friends and relations which have continuously been divided and shared with others.
Persons associated with the garden include: Riverview Ranch and Livestock Co. (former owner, 1917); Don Albrecht (former owner); Robert and Marna MacLean (garden designers, 1986- ); Vince Lee (architect, 1986); Les Weber (log home builder).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a short biography of the former property owner, and other information.
General:
Designed around 1966 by Thomas D. Church and Associates, this garden in a wooded setting provided an atmosphere for reflection on and appreciation of its surroundings. Stone walls, terraces, and walkways defined spaces at the front and back of the house as well as the pool area. This hardscaping was complemented by sculpture, green lawns, and seasonal plantings of bulbs, flowering shrubs, and similarly colorful accents. The overall impression was one of openness and simplicity. The property was designated as an arboretum by the Nashville Tree Foundation in 1988.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Thomas D. Church and Associates (landscape architects, 1966) and David K. and Anne Potter Wilson (former owners).

The Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson Jr. Garden (Nashville, Tennessee)

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The garden and residence of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Robinson represents one of the first "Country Place Era" gardens in Nashville. The Neoclassical home, designed by architects A. Christian Asmus and Richard R. Clark, was built in 1929 by F.J. McCarthy and his wife Mary Byrd McCarthy. When the current owners assumed ownership of the property in 1987, the garden areas near the house were primarily lawns surrounded by towering boxwood hedges, formal and static in design. With the desire to allow more light into the Neoclassical style house as well as to create terraces to accommodate an eight foot change in elevation and a garden room for a swimming pool, the owners turned to their sons-in-law, landscape architect Ben Page (ASLA) and architect Stephen P. Rick (AIA) to renovate the property. The four garden rooms that were designed are arranged laterally alongside and below the house with surrounding high walls and interior low walls. A pre-existing 50-foot antique wrought iron fence and a pergola built on massive piers were incorporated into the design and separate the garden rooms from the natural garden that comprises the rest of the property. The first room is a large terrace that can be tented for special events, with steps down to a more intimate sunken terrace for family use, followed by more steps to a formal parterre rose garden with a pool and fountain in the middle and pear trees espaliered against one wall, and lastly a landscaped pool and new pool house converted from a three car garage with cutting and vegetable gardens nearby. A door in the garden wall closes off the swimming area when it is out of season.
This garden features plant material and hardscape with provenance, starting with the Seven Sisters climbing roses that were transplanted from another family property in the 1930s. Peonies planted by the current owner's mother still thrive below the pool house and border the cutting and vegetable gardens. The antique wrought iron fence was salvaged from another Nashville property and bricks used for the walks once comprised East Nashville sidewalks laid in the late 1800s. A Charlie Hunt sculpture "Dove of Peace" was carved from a foundation stone salvaged from an East Nashville church, Saint Ann's Episcopal (1882-1998). Native limestone and Tennessee Crab Orchard stone are local materials used for the walls and terraces.
In early spring a row of Yoshino cherry trees blooms along one side of a brick walkway just inside the high limestone wall with tulips blooming on the other side. Pansies and tulips surround the fountain in the rose garden for early color. In summer Annabelle hydrangeas border the swimming pool, and perennial flower beds come into bloom.
The gardens on the estate provide ample opportunities for a wide variety of social, civic and charitable events. One such event was the 1993 Swan Ball Patron's Party for the benefit of Cheekwood Botanical Barden and Museum of Art. The current owner has also hosted a series of literary salons to benefit the Nashville Public Library. Numerous local non-profits have benefited from fundraisers and garden tours hosted at the estate.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. F.J. and Mary Byrd McCarthy (former owners, 1929-1931); Mr. Edwin Wilson Craig and Elizabeth Wade Craig (former owners, 1931-1987); Christian A. Asmus and Richard R Clark (architects, 1929-1939); Ben Page, ASLA (landscape architect, 1988-1990); Stephen P. Rick (architect, 1988-1990); William Ralston (sculptor); Charlie Hunt (sculptor); Pink Ray (groundskeeper, 1931-1958); Mark Owen (groundskeeper, 1948-1971); Roy Goddard (groundskeeper, 1972-1981); Malcolm Campbell (grounds manager, 1981-1990); Norman David Pugh (grounds manager, 1990-present); Michele Webber (gardener, 2010-present).

Scope and Contents:
The folders contain a worksheet, site plan, plant list, copies of landscape plans, owner documentation, and an article.
General:
Slightly more than an acre with a creek running through it, the house was designed to take advantage of the privacy of the location. The house and garden ornamentation were designed by Hal Thomson. This property, like many Italian gardens relies on water features, detailed stone work, and a sloping site with terraces. The renovation of the classical Italian style garden includes a new crescent-shaped pool and a rustic low key limestone pathway to link all the architectural elements together. These include an original boathouse, stone bridge, and a terrace with balustrade and fountain. An orangerie was added next to the fountain courtyard in 2013, with curved steps inset in the grass slope that leads to i. Also a high stucco wall was added. The present owners' goal was to do only the work that enhanced the original designs of the house and garden.
This garden was initially documented for the Archives of American Gardens in 2003. Updates of the garden documentation were provided in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
