L. F. Corrigan Garden (Dallas, Texas)
Date:
2003
2003, 2007, 2010-2011
Notes:
This medium-sized urban garden has an unstructured woodland appeal. Mature plantings of azaleas and hydrangeas--punctuated by Japanese maples, dogwood, yoshino cherry and "soulangiana" magnolia--anchor the garden design. Free form beds of annual color compliment drifts of fern and hosta. Features include: a wall fountain draped with wisteria; a free-form swimming pool with rock outcroppings and stone foot bridge; a water fountain with rock rapids adjoining the pool; antique Balanese palace door surround; a bronze sculpture of granddaughter and pet; and a hexagonal glass conservatory with seating and working areas.
The garden was re-documented in 2011. Three significant changes to the garden have been made since 2003 including the growth of yaupon hollies clipped to look like one large chicken and two smaller chicks and the addition of a large collection of succulents in the solarium and a new design for the front courtyard in 2009.
People associated with this property include: William Morris (former owner, 1930-1958), Arthur Berger (landscaping, 1959); Naud Burnett (pool and landscape, 1972); Armstrong-Berger, Inc. (solarium, 1993); James Luedeman (landscaping, 1993-2007);and Barvo Walker (sculptor).
