Reflections (Kirkwood, Missouri)
Harris Armstrong built the combination guest house and studio on his home property. Armstrong dammed a brook on the property, creating a pond. An egg-shaped island is located in the center. Armstrong uses lotus and water lilies set in the pond. A metal strip set in concrete set around the perimeter of the pond prevents erosion.
Person(s) associated with the garden include(s): Mr. and Mrs. Harris Armstrong (former owners); and Mr. Harris Armstrong (architect).
The folders include a work sheet, copies of page from Treasury of American Gardens.
