McDonald Garden, formerly known as.
General:
Since 1940 the gardens of this 1.75 acre property have been designed and filled with unusual specimen trees and flowering shrubs, then redesigned by a second owner equally committed to plant collecting who wanted to maintain the early gardens as much as possible. The initial design included a broad brick terrace behind the house that overlooked a sweeping lawn bordered by beds containing perennials, shrubs and trees. A rock garden marked the transition from the cultivated gardens to a native woodlands on the steep slope to the Willamette River. Behind the brick wall along the street there was a hedge of arborvitae and rhododendron had been planted along the brick wall at the far end of the terrace. A glass and brick gazebo stood in the front courtyard, topped with a hummingbird weather vane by sculptor Keith Jellum. When the property changed hands in 2002 all these features were changed too: the overgrown arborvitae were replaced with large-leafed boxwood, too tall rhododendron that blocked the view from the house were relocated, the crumbling gazebo was removed, and the hummingbird weathervane was mounted on a stand in an island bed of seasonal plantings where it can spin with the wind. The mature specimen trees including paper bark maple, Ponderosa pine, several varieties of magnolia, Garry oak, dawn redwood and a wheel tree remained but new beds were designed and planted with hellebores, hosta, fuchsias, clematis, rhododendrons, peonies, dwarf conifers and arum varieties. A new shade garden called the grotto replaced failing grass, a new green house and four bin composting center were built. The rock garden was augmented with steps and additional plantings, and wide gravel paths were laid for touring as well as working in the perennials beds that border the lawn.
Originally the 1.3 acres that were cultivated were conceived as parkland and featured rare plant material. A garden room in a warmer microclimate known as the Chilean garden was kept and included a windmill palm, swamp cypress and other semi-tropical plants; a crepe myrtle and pomegranate were espaliered on the garage wall along one side. Three copper bowl fountains of Greco-Roman design placed in the front and side courtyards were connected to a recirculating water pump in the basement of the house. The brick walls surrounding the terrace were perforated, a signature design of the original landscape architects Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver and the gazebo built on a curved brick wall in the front court was a stand-out feature. The parkland was planted so there would be open views from the house and terrace of Mount Saint Helens and the Willamette River.
Persons associated with the property include Sir James and Lady McDonald (former owners, 1940-2002); Susan and John Bates (former owners, 2002-2015); Elizabeth Lord (1887-1976) and Edith Schryver (1901-1984) (landscape architects, 1940); Ernest Tucker (landscape architect, 1977); Marsha Matschek (landscape designer, 1975- );Clark Matschek (landscape architect, 1996); Conrad Hahn (head gardener, 1950); Ernest Meyer (architect, 1942); Charles Voorhis (architect, 1977); John Storrs (architect, 1960); Echo Cole (head gardener, 1996- ); Gilbert Meigs (engineer, 1978); Jay Wesley Miner (garden designer and head gardener, 2006- ); Withey Price (garden design, 2004); Megan Galaher (garden designer, 2014); Martha Schneikert (steel garden structures, 2006); John Buttrell (tree pruning, 2006- ); Blake Thomas (tree pruning, 2006- ).

Place:
Elizabeth's Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and an article.
General:
This small city garden is located on a corner lot of approximately one sixth of an acre overlooking the Dallas Country Club Golf Course. The garden was established in either 1991 or 1997 when the property was purchased by the current owners who downsized from a much larger two acre property. "Climbing Royal Sunset" roses are planted in all the beds and planters around the house. Some have climbed two stories tall and bloom until frost.
A walkway lined with topiaries lead to the stairs of the entrance of the house. Plantings include azaleas and roses. A stacked limestone rock wall borders the southern and eastern edge of the property and is planted with perennials and annuals.
The property includes two garden areas for seating and dining at the front and back of the house. The front garden (on the south end of the property) is protected by an 8 foot holly hedge which may be entered from the sidewalk through an arch in the hedge. The front garden features a blue stone slate terrace furnished with garden furniture for dining. The terrace is surrounded by beds planted with roses, hydrangeas, perennials such as irises, delphinium, daisies and tulips and daffodils in the spring. Two Japanese maples in planters provide year-round color.
The back garden (on the northwest corner of the property) is also bordered with roses and includes a terrace and patio, both of brick. A barbeque grill and smoker have been built into the eastern brick wall bordering the patio. A wooden pergola provides structure around the terrace seating area. Seasonally rotated perennials and annuals are planted in containers throughout the back garden.

Milton -- Neville Garden

Place:
Neville Garden (Milton, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Suffolk County -- Milton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, copies of artwork and site plans.
General:
The Neville Garden is comprised of fourteen different named areas that reflect the owners' interests and relationships, all contained in one-third acre with an Arts and Crafts style house built circa 1910. The private garden rooms behind the house were originally utilitarian areas used for laundry and services, and by 1988 were in derelict condition. To commence the redesign a crumbling sidewalk to the service entrance was removed, fencing was improved, the ground was leveled, a terrace was built, and trees and spring bulbs were planted. Improvements were made each year, including the removal of tree stumps, overgrown trees and shrubs, the repositioning of old rhododendrons away from the house and the moving of a cupid fountain from in front of the house to the rear to become the centerpiece of a perennial garden. Other private garden rooms behind hedges or fences include a brick Tuscan courtyard and hybrid tea rose bed, an allee of apple trees, a philosopher's garden with stone pavers and seating, a paved T'ai Chi court with statuary, and a minimalist garden with a fountain. The garden rooms that are visible to the public include a hot garden planted in red and yellow annuals and perennials, Anselm's shrubbery fort designed for grandchildren's play, a pastel perennial bed and evergreen corner, woodlands and shade gardens on the perimeters, a bonsai rock garden, a cliff garden with a mugo pine and azaleas as well as mosses, an English cottage garden and hydrangea hedge, and a sunset terrace with seating and a nearby bed of chrysanthemums.
The hot garden is on a corner of the property and is used as a public space to display political and advocacy materials. For several years it held a September 11 memorial. A ring of globe cypress was planted to disguise an above ground plastic swimming pool that eventually wore out and was replaced by the circular minimalist garden planted with a sourwood tree, an American dogwood, and a Japanese red maple. Native rocks have been repositioned and stood up as accent pieces, including a bizarre boulder made of granite, quartz, mud, pebbles and other glacial debris. The Neville Garden was award the Isabel Stoughton Foster Cup in 2007 by the Milton Garden Club, which cited the profusion of flowering trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs, the four seasons of interest in the garden, and the privacy and serenity of the garden rooms.
Persons associated with the garden include: John R. Rablin (former owner, 1910-c.1930); Driscoll family (former owners, c.1930-c.1980); Mickey and Eleanor McGonagle (former owners, c.1980-1988); Bob, Josh and Maggie Oldfield, Thayer Nursery (grading and planting stock); A.

The Granby Garden (Richmond, Virginia)
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, planting lists, features plan, bibliography and other additional information.
General:
The Granby Garden, located on approximately one acre in Richmond, Virginia, is an urban garden which spans both public and private areas. Development of the garden began in 1975 with the purchase of the house, which included a garden comprised of fifty dying rose bushes and a grass path. Since that time the garden has matured and increased, with added components reflecting an interest in history, architecture, whimsy and community. The original path was paved with an assortment of brick, granite spalls and bluestone pavers in 1986. In 1993, adjacent property was leased and the garden was expanded. The public alleys on either side have also been incorporated. Among The Granby Garden's features are garden beds up to six feet deep, walkways, arbors, terra-cotta pottery, a Gothic-style toolshed inspired by an eighteenth-century drawing by William Kent.
The garden beds in the alleys were planted with divided plants from the private area of the garden. The owner, the creator of the garden, selects native, hardy, human and dog resistent plants.
The dense beds, filled with a variety of perennials and annuals, echo the cottage-style gardens of England. Plantings include primrose, daylilies, iris, Rudbeckia, oxalis, variegated Solomon's seal, rose and helleborus. Spiky trees, such as Juniper perfecta and cypress, punctuate the lush plantings. Various grasses, hosta and ferns add verticality and texture. Shrubs include varieties of hydrangea, althea, golden barberry, crape myrtle, globe arborvitae, photinia and Ligustrum. Mandevilla vine, caladiums, begonias and impatiens are planted annually for additional color.
Persons associated with the garden include: Virginia Bryce (former owner, 1940s-1974), John Melville Jennings (former owner, 1974-1975).

Place:
Butler Garden (Honolulu, Hawaii)
United States of America -- Hawaii -- Honolulu County -- Honolulu
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and other information.
General:
Located on less than one acre, Butler Garden was begun in 1979 and is unique for its exceptional variety of tropical plants. It was transformed from a dirt dog run into a tropical Eden embellished with exotic palms, tropical trees, vines, heliconia, bromeliad, hedges, plants, ferns and herbs inspired by gardens the owner visited in Indonesia, Costa Rica, Singapore and Rio de Janeiro. Also on the property is a shade house which shelters begonias, calathea, vanilla orchids and seasonal vegetables.
Accentuating the lush tropical flora are unique garden ornaments and containers, such as Chinese ceramic food storage jars in front of a cottage, a brass platter purchased in Amsterdam on the door of the shade house, a giant Tridacna clam shell placed along a pathway. A propeller blade from a Japanese Zero airplane shot down during Pearl Harbor and Hawaiian war canoe stone anchor adds interest to the water feature area and a large glass ball used to float fishing nets in the early 1900s is transformed as an entrance lantern.
The owner's home, built in 1928, is in the process of being registered with the National Register of Historic Places. Plans are to continue to enhance the garden's visual affect and to lower its maintenance by incorporating ground cover, lava rocks and large groupings of bromeliads, ferns, heliconia and potted plants.
Prior to 1927, the land was part of the Bishop Estate.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert and Beryl St. Sure and George and Kathryn St. Sure (former owners, 1927-1951) and Robert Conley (former owners, 1951-1978).

Place:
Nottage Garden (Kaneohe, Hawaii)

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and other information.
General:
Native Hawaiians built fish ponds from lava rocks in the 1400s that developers filled in the 1940s to produce ocean front housing sites. The Nottage Garden is located on 17,500 square feet of this fill, mostly heavy clay harvested from nearby reefs in Kane'ohe Bay. Starting in 1955, the owners have created an informal tropical garden stocked with native Polynesian and Asian trees and perennials that surrounds their self-designed house and continues to the bay. An open Dutch door provides an ocean view from the house, and the front deck and ocean side terrace are furnished for outdoor living. Several varieties of palm trees grow on the perimeter of the property along with lychee, lime, lemon, papaya and banana trees that provide fruit and privacy. Colorful bromeliads, hibiscus, ti and bougainvillea grow alongside abundant ferns, blue sandpaper, stephanotis, and golden dewdrop vines and bonsai.
The garden incorporates artifacts and plants of the Hawaiian culture. Lava rock is used for retaining walls and large basins once used for crushing rocks are now planting containers. Garden ornaments include green glass fishing floats from Japan. The owners planted Hala trees that served many purposes historically, including fiber for weaving and wood for implements.
Persons associated with the garden include Lois Nottage (garden designer, 1955 to present).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, and copies of articles about the garden and the Brauers.
General:
Established in 1980, this ca. 2.5 acre garden lies on a peninsula jutting into Liberty Bay, an arm of Puget Sound. The site was originally homesteaded in 1889. The garden is informal and incorporates as many different species of trees and shrubs as possible, including many dwarf trees. Several large grassy areas include a meadow that is cut two times a year. Above the beach is a long, winding perennial garden that is gradually evolving into a shade garden. Because many of the trees and shrubs are grown from seeds or cutting from friends of the owner or exchanges, the feeling of the garden is changing all the time; it may even eventually evolve into a mixed forest. Challenges with which the owners have had to contend in developing the garden include brush, junk left from previous uses, soil consisting of heavy blue clay and fine glacial silt, and a constant struggle to maintain the view of the sound and the Olympic Mountains. Raised planting areas, a variety of plants resulting in year-round bloom, and the use of evergreen ground covers and dwarf shrubs in many different hues and textures have led to a result that respects and builds on the natural setting, yet incorporates such highlights as water features and a bonsai collection.
Persons associated with the garden include: Uno Noll Brauer and Sara Elizabeth Peterson Brauer and family (former owners, 1889-1975); John Fluke (former owner, 1975-1979); Daniel Robinson (landscape contractor, 1982-1983); Dick Yamasaki (landscape designer, 1980-1981); and Denise Kelly (gardener, 1983 to date).

Place:
Dunmovin (Fairview, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Erie -- Fairview
Scope and Contents:
1 folder, 20 digital images and 23 digital prints. The folder includes worksheets and additional images.
General:
When purchased in 1973 Dunmovin comprised a house on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie surrounded by a blank slate of about two acres of grass enclosed by another seven acres of woodlands. The owners have created eight gardens, one for vegetables and the other seven for perennials, shrubs, evergreens, meandering stone walkways and statuary. Their first 15-foot-long perennial garden border planted in trucked in topsoil has expanded to be 100 feet along the circular driveway with another 80 foot garden border mirroring it across the lawn. A rose garden planted with hybrid teas has evolved to contain knockout roses, a weeping cherry, a flowering almond, rose of Sharon bushes, and a wisteria arbor. Raspberry and blackberry canes climb the fence of the vegetable garden, and there are fruit trees planted further out. A large shade garden has lady's mantle, ferns, a variegated willow tree and hemlocks. Dwarf conifers in a bed at the front of the house have outgrown their space and are being moved one at a time. A slightly raised bed outside the screened porch has hydrangeas, moon flowers, ageratum, and a view of a mature weeping willow, hostas and pachysandra. Beyond this garden there is an all-white memorial garden for a deceased member of the family. The transition from lawn to woodlands is softened by plantings of evergreens.
The lake and sandy beach are important features of the property for recreation and stunning sunsets. An 80 foot groin barrier and a seawall at the bottom of the bluff were built to mollify lake activity and control erosion. A circular stone patio with an inlaid compass rose was built on a spot overlooking the lake and furnished with Adirondack chairs and tables painted light blue. A 10-inch dawn redwood specimen found in a nursery years ago now towers over the house. A creek that feeds into Lake Erie marks the border of the property on one side and is tapped for water for the gardens. Other amenities include a rope swing and a hammock in the shade.
Persons associated with the garden include Tom Raines (former owner, 1919-1946); Paul Stephany (former owner, 1946-1960); D. Carlisle Brock (former owner, 1960-1969); Don Shannon (former owner, 1969-1972); Denny Ward (landscape designer, 1970's); Dan Dahlkemper (landscape architect, 1980's); Joseph Bonanti (gardener, 1970's); John Bananti and Sons (gardener, 1990's- ); Brett Maloney (landscape designer, 2017).

General:
Located on two acres, this property has been owned and gardened by members of the same family since 1940, and consists of a series of all season garden rooms each with it's own unique purpose. At first Scotch broom had to be dug up, the farmland had to be improved, paths were laid, and periwinkle dug from the woods was planted as ground cover. There were few trees - a sweet gum tree was planted for quick shade - and a Victory Garden and fruit orchard were planted during World War II. The house, designed by architect Marshall Swain Wells in 1939, was apttered after a dependeny at the Colonial Williamsburg Palace. In 2005 landscape architect Charles J. Stick designed a formal entry garden paved in brick with four boxwood parterres surrounding white crape myrtles. Belgian landscape architect Francọis Goffinet designed an English style cottage garden that spans the front of the center of the house, filling beds with continuous summer blooms, with arched gateways at either end smothered in roses. Behind the house Stick replaced overgrown boxwood that defined mid-century garden rooms with a flagstone terrace. Goffinet also designed a formal allée of four boxwood-edged beds filled with flowering perennials and shrubs that terminates in a grove of crape myrtle.
The kitchen garden, also formal, has four smaller parterres growing herbs with espaliered apple trees as wall on one side. The chapel walk passes a dog cemetery that has stone benches and markers, leading to a stone chapel modeled on a gazebo at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. A meditation garden at one end of the cottage garden has a low stone wall, white sand floor, and a large espaliered camellia. The white garden was redesigned in 2017, pruning back 75-year-old boxwood and adding white peonies and ephemeral bulbs. A log cabin built circa 1830 was relocated to this property, placed so the porch faces west for viewing sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains. Paths through the wooded areas lead to the pollinator garden for bees and butterflies, the birch walk inspired by groves seen in England, a secret garden, and a cabin walk and cabin garden. The periwinkle outside the cabin had succumbed to fungal disease so a dry stream, stone wall, and plantings including dwarf Japanese maples, dogwood, hellebores, astilbe, ferns and hosta comprise a newer garden room. More natives including wildflowers have been planted along the original winding paths and in woodlands.
Persons associated with the garden include Birney and Irene Sims (former owners, 1938-1973); Marshall Swain Wells (architect, 1939); M. Jack Rinehart, Jr. (architect, 1991, 2005); Francọis Goffinet (landscape architect, 1993); Charles J. Stick (landscape architect, 2006); C. Colston Burrell (horticulturist, 1991-2017); Leslie Harris (horticulturist, 1991-2017); Donna Ernest (gardener, 1991-2017).
