Feagler Garden (Omaha, Nebraska)
"A private, suburban garden composed of multilevel garden rooms and structural components for outdoor living and entertaining. Both a garden room and a potting/work area provide access on different levels to the terrace with areas of grass and brick and steps up to seating and eating areas, and a brickwork hot tub. A brick path and steps lead through an iron gate into a shade garden designed in quadrants around a fountain, with two north-south brick paths on two levels. Redbud, whitebud, ash, maple, pear and crabapple trees shade the groundcovers of hosta, epimedium, vinca and pachysandra, which
are accented by tulips and mertensia in the spring. The property turns to the west to create an inverted 'L' shape. This sunny back area contains an iron arch, a rose-covered arbor, grass surrounded by English-style perennial borders containing a wide variety of flowers, and ends with a wooden pergola and bench behind a small lily pond."
