Maclay Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, and landscape architecture plans.
General:
Located on a property that dates back to 1932, the Maclay Garden was established beginning in 1974 when the current owners purchased the property and began the work of transforming a garden that had been left to grow wild. Encouraged to design a garden that would be easy to maintain and offer year-round beauty, azaleas were chosen to feature prominently throughout the property, providing bright washes of color in spring and lush greenery throughout the year. Deep beds of evergreens and azaleas protect the property from its busy surroundings, both from the front of the house as well as framing the perimeter of the back garden. A walk along the side of the residence leads through a gated wall and shaded garden path to the main garden. The main garden features a large lawn framed by azaleas, a swimming pool, and two terraces offering garden seating and an outdoor dining area.
Entities associated with the garden include: King Burney Hughes (former owner, 1932-1934); the Praetorian family (former owners, 1935-1936); Mollie F. Hall (former owner, 1936); Mrs. Frances Hall McCracken (former owner, 1936-1974); William Pardoe & Associates (landscape design, date unknown); Mike Kirkpatrick (role and date unkown); and Lambert Landscape Company (landscape design, 1985).

Maclay Garden related holdings consist of 1 folder (12 35 mm slides (photographs))

Place:
United States of America -- Vermont -- Bennington County -- Manchester
Turkey Hill Farm (Manchester, Vermont)
Scope and Contents:
55 digital images (2019) and 1 file folder with a photocopy of cover art of this farm for a 1925 Country Life magazine.
General:
In the 1930's the owners of a farmhouse originally built in 1849 installed gardens around the house including a sunken rose garden, perennial borders, a cutting garden, and a formal terrace with a spring-fed fountain. These gardens were maintained by three generations of the Childs family and by the current owner when the 15-acre property was purchased in 1998. In 2005 a five-acre pasture was developed as a sculpture garden with contemporary works of art and complementary plantings. A dry stream bed (arroyo) that cuts through the property was turned into another garden, planted with iris, Japanese primrose, cranesbill and hosta. Between 2012 and 2015 a woodlands garden with a rustic pergola and hexagonal gazebo and a Japanese garden with a pagoda, French Art Deco gate and arched bridge were designed and installed. Some of the original perennial borders were updated with flowers in bolder colors but antique apple trees, another pergola with benches underneath for appreciating the views, a cider press, and outbuildings including a stone spring house have been preserved. A corn crib was converted into a guest cottage; a larger guest house near the main house has linear hedges and flower beds as well as a reflecting pool on the axis that leads to a sculpture.

The stone walls and hedges are meticulous, lawns are mowed in the crisscrossing pattern, and narrow brick paths have been set into wider mowed grass walkways. Clipped hedges with stone walls or artefacts highlight long views of these grounds toward distant mountains. There are two fenced vegetable gardens and a greenhouse. A large pond has a pond house nearby as well as a small sand beach. The garden has been included in tours sponsored by the Nature Conservancy and used by non-profit organizations for fund raising events. The owner is interested in preserving the property as a public space.

Persons associated with the garden include: F. Nelson and Florence Doubleday (former owners, -1931); Lowrie and Hortense Childs (former owners, 1931-1944); Charles S. and Helen Childs (former owners, 1944-1976); Charles (Pete) and Jane Childs (former owners, 1976-1998); Sylvia and Stanley Stroup (owners, 1998-2017); Stanley Stroup (owners, 2017-); Hortense Childs (house gardens designer, 1930's); North Hill Garden Design (sculpture garden and woodland garden designers, 2008 and 2007-2012); Ray Smith (Japanese garden designer, 2013); Sugar Rock Landscape (hardscape construction, 2008-2014); Janette Morrison and Ernie Dibble (gardeners, 1998- ); David Tamych (sculptor); Rita Dee (sculptor); Richard Erdman (sculptor); Phil Thorne (sculptor); Roger Di Taranto (sculptor); Thomas Ostenberg (sculptor); Mark Chatterley (sculptor); Hans Van de Bovencamp (sculptor); Peter Woytuk (sculptor); George Sherwood (sculptor); Curt Brill (sculptor); Royden Mills (sculptor).

General:
The original land, purchased circa 1970, was less than two acres with a modest house was meant to be a vacation home. The flat rectangular lot had been used as a dump and took two years to clear; the task of creating order evolved into creating a formal parterre garden with brick walkways, extensive treillage and hedges, a potager, and rose gardens. Primarily French in design the formal garden was laid out on a central axis with asymmetrical radiating paths with a Greek herm placed at one end of the axis. Three more acres were acquired; yew hedges were planted since there were no walls, in addition to the clipped boxwood hedges of the parterres. The property features a woodland modeled on English parks, swimming pool, dovecote and other sculptures placed throughout the garden rooms
Persons associated with the garden include Gerson Leiber (owner and garden designer, 1970s - ); Judith Leiber (owner, 1970s - ).
