Lord & Schryver, the first landscape architecture firm founded and operated by women in the Pacific Northwest, designed more than 250 gardens in Oregon and Washington, including the grounds for Reed College of Portland, Salem parks, and schools, public buildings and churches. Gaiety Hollow, the Salem house Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver built as a home and studio for themselves, is now owned by the Lord & Schryver Conservancy and (in non-pandemic times) open to the public. The Conservancy has lovingly restored the gardens at Gaiety Hollow according to Lord & Schryver's plans. They also manage, and have restored, the gardens at Deepwood, a Queen Anne house two blocks from Gaiety Hollow.
