Eastman House - Rock Garden / Back Entrance

Eastman  House  -  Rock  Garden /  Back  Entrance

Looking at the back entrance of the museum (this serves as the main entrance) from the Rock Garden at the Eastman House. Alling DeForest designed this informal garden's rocky landscape in 1902 as a large, bowl-shaped depression, which functioned as a hidden, picturesque destination for George Eastman's guests followng a stroll through the property. A network of paths and drives connected it to all the other gardens on the estate, as well as to the greenhouses, poultry yard, stable, and orchard. Comfortable benches wre conviently placed in the 250-foot horseshoe-shaped grape arbor, offering shade form the sun and shelter from the wind and rain for Eastman's guests. Extensive vegetable gardens once flanked the south-north borders of the garden. Historical photos reveal a semi-circular rock garden with scallop-shaped ornamental beds filled with Adam's needle, basket-of-gold, clematis, cotoneaster, grape hyacinth, Japanese barberry, and rock cress nestled into a grassy depression within the wooden arbor's interior curve. Although no planting plan survives, garden historians, Doell & Doell designed restoration plans using these photos as their primary historical reference. A matching grant supporting the grape arbor's restoration was awarded by the NYS Evironmental Quality Bond Act of 1987. Restoration of the garden was completed in the spring of 1992. Directly behind the rock garden, hugging the arbor's northern perimeter, are trees and shrubs that have bloomed in this location for nearly a century, such as lilacs, mock oranges, and ginko trees. Charles Zoller's autochome color plates (circa 1926) were helpful in determining the correct plant materials for restoring the Rock Garden to its original state. Located at the George Eastman House and Gardens, 900 East Ave in Rochester, NY.

20080406 tabulagrassa, springfield version

Time to resurrect the tabula grassa series, with our Springfield home's backyard. This is a big project landscaping project that will take at least two summers.

The garden plot is not in an ideal place yardwise because it breaks up the space; but it's the ideal place for growing, getting the most sunlight. The patio will get pushed down to between the garden and the Redbud tree in the middle.

This will work out better overall as the patio will be partly shaded by the tree. An herb garden strip will go between the garden plot and the house/arbor, for quick access to fresh herbs when cooking.

Once the garden plot placement gets finalized (not until next summer, after we determine where the best spot is this summer), we'll build it up nicely and lay down a flagstone patio. Shrubs/bulbs/taller grasses will run around the perimeter, then other bulbs/flowers throughout the yard. Growing proper grass instead of weeds in whatever areas are left will finish out our plan.
