EVERY BRANCH & BLADE



BY MARK R. EISCHEID
The site manager Ben Wever talks about maintenance at Dan Kiley?s Miller Garden.
FROM THE JULY 2019 ISSUE OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MAGAZINE.
 
Considered a modernist masterpiece, Dan Kiley?s Miller Garden in Columbus, Indiana, is now more than 60 years old. Previously the private residence of the J. Irwin and Xenia S. Miller family (1957?2008), the property has been owned and managed by Newfields (formerly the Indianapolis Museum of Art) since 2009. Ben Wever, the site manager of the Miller House and Garden, was born and raised in Columbus and has a decades-long history with the site. His grandmother, Barbara Voelz, worked for the Miller family, and he would occasionally visit the property as a child. He later became a part-time gardener for the Millers while in high school, and eventually a seasonal and then a full-time groundskeeper and a personal assistant to J. Irwin Miller. Wever?an Indiana-accredited horticulturist, member of Landmark Columbus?s Advocacy and Education Committee, and a midcentury furniture collector?also has experience maintaining other Kiley designs throughout Columbus. In his current role, Wever oversees the care, curation, and maintenance of both the Miller House and Garden. The following are excerpts from a conversation regarding the practices and challenges of maintaining the Miller Garden. Ben Wever in the Crabapple Grove in winter.
