Bare essentials: Simplicity rules in Sarah Hammond’s California garden

THE CITIZENS OF the northern California town where Sarah Hammond lives would rather you didn’t know they exist: They have a habit of stealing the sign that tells you where to turn off Route 1 to get there. You can’t really blame them–they want to enjoy their quiet little town, and their sparkling estuary where blue herons and snowy egrets feed, in peace. They’d prefer it if the tourists from San Francisco would just keep on going up the coastal road to Bodega Bay or Mendocino, where they’re used to such nuisances.

You’d expect a town like that to be full of rugged individualists–sixties types who have settled down and gotten a bit cranky. Their gardens, you imagine, are probably big, unruly patches of organically grown vegetables, maybe with some Cannabis sativa here and there. So it comes as something of a surprise to meet Hammond, a designer and garden consultant who is an individualist of a very different sort. She is a short, slight woman, with shoulder-length black hair, sun-browned skin, and startling blue eyes. Her movements are quick, even abrupt, and her sentences tumble out in a torrent, veering off into half a dozen different subjects as each captures her enthusiasm.

Cannas among the conifers: Linda Cochran adds a touch of the tropics to Puget Sound

MY FAVORITE MORNING WALK takes me first through a rolling meadow full of wild pears and hawthorns and then into deep fir woods thick with ferns and mosses. The two areas are separated by a recently developed neighborhood. Most of its yards are ordinary indeed, but one is so remarkable that it is impossible to pass by without taking notice. The eye is captured first by a sprawling space full of great grasses, tawny as the African savanna. Mixed in with them are appropriately outsize flowers–masses of angel’s-trumpets (Datara inoxia), jagged, silvery towers of cardoon, and thready spears of Verbena Bonariensis. After the first gasp, you wonder whether you are still in the maritime Northwest or have stumbled into some exotic Jules Verne alternative to the everyday world.

Behind this massive front bed, a brick wall encloses the garden proper, but plants appear tantalizingly over the wall’s top. Dusky purple balloons of joe-pye weed some 10 feet high bob gently against a softer wall of giant reed grass (Arundo donax). Spikes of cattails stand stiff before fountains of cascading grasses. Look behind the wall and you will find other more improbable shapes and colors. A blue and purple Egyptian column, its lofty top planted with water iris, drips musically into an unseen pool. Shaggy plumes of South African honey bush foliage (Melianthus major) glimmer, silver blue and saw-toothed, beside enormous red and black banana leaves. Spoke-leaved fan palms make great wheels beneath a gilded cloud of Robinia pseudo-acacia `Frisia’. Paddle-shaped cannas striped in gold or splashed with burgundy and puce contrast with foamy clouds of giant seakale (Urambe cordifolia).

An urban surprise

ON A BUSY STREET in Wilmette, Illinois, a woman pauses by a sign for the Tidy Muffler Shop, taken aback by the black-flowered hollyhocks that rise up toward it. Uncertain of her feelings about black flowers indeed, unsure that she has ever seen them before–she takes a few more steps and discovers a bountiful arch of pink-blossomed ‘New Dawn’ roses next door. The arch, underplanted with peachy pink ‘Bonnie’ lilies, and with lupines, delphiniums, and asters, frames the window of the low gray studio that houses Craig Bergmann and James Grigsby’s landscape design business. She may not know that, but she does know that the abundance of the roses and the beauty of the lilies are a refreshing sight in the city, and she smiles as she continues along the alpine currant hedge that separates the garden, the studio, and the wood-shingled house from the street.

If the woman had rounded the corner and gone through the smart wooden entry-way at the rear of the house, she would have found a treasure trove of plants that would do much to teach her of the intricacies of foliage and flower, color and fragrance. Visitors who do enter the quarteracre garden that envelops Bergmann and Grigsby’s home and place of work will find themselves on a neat path lined with boxwood, which first leads to an elegant, turn-of-the-century glasshouse, then veers off around the house and on to the studio. When the two men bought the property nine years ago, the 20-by-30-foot entryway was nothing but a forbidding mass of white gravel. Now a pair of topiaries, carefully shaped by Grigsby into a fan and a handsome spiral, guard the door to the restored glasshouse, along with a host of herbs and flowering plants that blossom in shades of soft pink, blue, and white from early spring well into November.

20 women the 20 most influential women in sports – part 2

Lydia Stephans

36, vice president of programming, ABC Sports

The idea for a women’s sports series had been tossed around for years, but the popular show A Passion To Play didn’t get off the ground until Lydia Stephans became the first female vice president of a network sports division. “I had to reach a certain level in the sports television industry before my passion and belief in women’s sport could be heard with credibility,” says Stephans, a member of the 1984 Olympic speedskating team. Marketability has to be Stephans’ bottom line. “We are really at the mercy of what our advertisers and viewers are interested in watching,” she says. “Ninety-seven percent of the sports on network television are men’s sports.” Still, her efforts to create and prove the market for women’s sports are groundbreaking. “It’s a long process,” she says. “My efforts will help make a dent. The generation that is just now coming into the sports television business will use what I and other women have done as a stepping-stone.”

Who would have thought that, in the end, it would all come down to shopping. Yes, shopping, or more accurately, consuming, has purchased women the power to change the course of the sports world. Trips to the store to pick up another pair of running shoes, a surf of the sports telecasts when in command of the clicker, that stack of fitness magazines on the top-priority corner of your night table all boil down to the tantalizing bottom line of current market research: Women buy sports.

Showing that we have the money finally convinced the gatekeepers of the wide world of sports that there is room enough in that world for women, too. This social and economic trend begun in earnest in the early `70s, with passage of federal legislation mandating that public schools provide equal opportunity for girls. Now, record numbers of females are participating in athletics and women have surpassed men in many areas as consumers of athletic apparel. With U.S. women dominating in last summer’s Olympics came proof that not only did those girls learn to play, the public loves to watch them.
