Dinesti (Reisterstown, Maryland)
United States of America -- Maryland -- Baltimore -- Reisterstown
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The Dinesti garden comprises 14 acres of which four acres are landscaped, ten acres are woodlands, and 1,000 square feet are fenced for growing vegetables, herbs and fruit. The large vegetable garden and pathways were added by the owners after 2003 to the already established landscape. Mature flowering trees and shrubs, some of which produce fruit for the owners and wildlife, shade expansive lawns. Varieties that add fall and winter color have been planted, including smoke bush, weeping spruce and Japanese red pine, and some older diseased trees have been replaced. There is a curving swimming pool with a curvy wooden retaining wall with a nearby stand of ornamental grasses to add movement. Brightly colored pool furniture, Adirondack chairs and whimsical garden art add spots of color in addition to the deeply planted beds of perennials, one sunny and one shady with native plants. Fragrant herbs and ornamentals are grown next to the screened porch and patio to add scent outside the house. Beds of daffodils along the driveway and throughout the garden provide spring color, followed by the flowering trees, spring and summer perennials, fall color from the trees and shrubs, and interesting shapes from evergreens in winter.
Persons associated with the garden include Joanne H. Diamond and Frank Pronesti (owners, 2003-present) and James & Virginia Potter (former owners, 1981-2003).

Stockbridge -- Old Place, The

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Berkshire County -- Stockbridge
Old Place, The (Stockbridge, Massachusetts)
Scope and Contents:
30 digital images (2016-2017) and 1 file folder.
General:
Historically significant, at the original center of the 18th century Mission town that became Stockbridge, the property has been owned by only four families in 325 years. Henry Williams Dwight originally bought the property in 1793. The approx. 4-acre garden, with long, protected views to Monument Mountain, has been shaped by the current owner since 1956. It has magnificent trees and extensive, varied flower and shrub beds in formal and informal settings. The maturity of the garden is exemplified by the large trees mostly evergreens, providing a privacy screen on three sides with an expansive lawn on the fourth side providing long views to Monument Mountain. These now mature specimens were planted in the late 1950s to replace American elm trees. The garden has elements of both classical and contemporary gardening and provides year-round interest.

The home's front entrance, with a circular driveway, dates to 1910 when the house was moved back from the road by the then owner, Emily Tuckerman. Tuckerman changed the exterior from clapboard to stucco, which now provides a background for climbing vines. A hemlock hedge separates the driveway from the rear garden. Beyond the hedge, on the eastern side of the lawn are mature, curving beds, double dug by homeowner in the 1970s, featuring multi-stemmed white birch and flowering shrubs under planted with perennials and ground covers. Tucked between the beds and the boundary trees is a historic cabin, which was documented by an 1876 town map. It has been restored a few times. First, by the owner's brother-in-law to create a studio, then by her husband to use as a writing retreat and last year by the owner, who added a screened porch. Aligned with the screened porch is an allée of boxwood, edging a grass path and leading to a gazebo. It is also seen on the 1927 plan and was most likely introduced by Emily Tuckerman, who was consistent with Italianate landscaping principles promoted by her friend Edith Wharton. Nearby is a children's playhouse and a pet cemetery. The boxwood hedge was planted in 2014 to replace ancient, straggling, tall yews. Before a house expansion in the late 1990s, the yew hedge came right up to the house and made the seating area rather dark. Now a sunny terrace, edged with flower beds and planters, has been created in the space between the old and new wings of the house. The box allée stops at the edge of the terrace, but the visual link to the house is maintained by stepping stones. The swimming pool installed around 1955 is surrounded by lawn. The whole area is enclosed by a fence on the southern side, paralleling the allée, and walls on the other three sides. Along each wall are summer-flowering beds that edge the lawn. Where there was once an expensive-to-run greenhouse, now there is a partially walled and fenced area, with raised beds for cutting flowers and vegetables.

Persons associated with the garden include: Names (role and dates of ownership/involvement). Example: Henry Williams Dwight and his descendants (former owner, 1783-1909 ); Emily Tuckerman and her descendant (former owner, 1909-1925 ); Annie L. Purcell (former owner, 1925-1931); John Barry and Nina Ryan (former owner, 1931-1947); William Hillard and Donald Ryan (former owner, 1947-1956).

United States of America -- Nebraska -- Douglas County -- Omaha
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and other information.
General:
Located on less than an acre, Frances Dowd Gardens was originally an 80 acre dairy farm that was subdivided by Archibald Love into Loveland Subdivision in 1922. This property's home was built in 1941, and an additional 36 feet x 177 feet of land was purchased to square off the back yard in 1975. At that time, the owners began in earnest to create the garden. Vines, rogue trees and shrubs were removed. Healthy trees were trimmed and new trees were planted. Gardens were designed, dug and planted along with new fencing and trellises added. A vegetable garden was also started in a fenced off area.
In 2000 a request was made from an ad agency representing Coke to film a commercial in their garden. The fee for the use of their property was donated to the Lauritzen Garden at Omaha's Botanical Center.
From 1971-2008 many additions were added to the home and grounds.The grounds improvements include: a screened porch and gazebo, two level brick and stone patio, trellis covered garden seat and playhouse.
An overview of the plantings include: several Hydrangea, Roses, Lilacs, Yew's, Box wood and Holly shrub varieties. Sun and shade perennials such as: Astilbe, Columbine, Aster, Geranium, Hibiscus, Peony, Sedum and many Hosta varieties. Trees include: Maple, redbud, dogwood, Hawthorn, American beech, white ash, White pine, Red oak, Chinese elm and different viburnum.
Persons associated with the property include: William and Charlotte Montgomery (former owners, 1941-1958), Robert and Jane Finnman (former owners, 1958-1964), Mary and William Grady (former owners, 1964-1966), Jeffery Mink (landscape architect), Matthew Dowd (builder and designer).

General:
The Black Garden designed by J. Duke Moody had a formal symmetrical structure with two brick terraces with outdoor furniture, fountains and brick-edged garden borders with easily maintained plantings. Sculptures were placed on plinths against brick backdrops and a wrought iron gazebo at the end of the principle terrace was planted with yellow trumpet vine. Although originally a mid-19th c. farmhouse the brick building was updated with French grille doors, a bay window overlooking the garden, and a garden room made from a screened porch.
This garden was originally documented as part of the Hollerith Family slide collection donated in 1993. An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012.
Persons associated with the property include: J. Duke Moody (garden designer, 1967-1980).
