Bayou Zen (Monroe, Louisiana)
The house, designed by F.A. Wardlaw, a former student of Frank Lloyd Wright, blends with its surroundings of the Bayou DeSiard. A series of river birch are planted along the drive. At the back of the house a vanishing edge pool links the house and pool to the bayou. The landscape is planted with various Japanese plants. A floating dock is the final element separating the estate from the bayou.
Person's associated with the garden include: F.A. Wardlaw (architect, 1961); Rachel Lilly (landscape architect, 1990-2003); Gerald Coker (nursery owner, 1990-1995); Robert Riddle (contractor); Harris Tassin (pool & deck, 1991-1992); and Lee Edwards (designer, 1990).
The folder includes a worksheet, plans, and a plant list.
