Shutt Garden (Dallas, Texas)
This 1.5-acre site reflects the original 1939 work of Dallas architect-builder Charles Dilbeck and landscape architect Joe Lambert. Enclosed by the original stone wall, it is one of Dilbeck's larger intact properties and is of historical importance to Dallas. Features include many large trees, a large swimming pool and cabana, an outdoor patio with a fireplace, a gatehouse, and meandering beds for shrubs, perennials, annuals, and groundcovers. This is an old garden, but one that is constantly being updated with new plant materials. The venerable trees and large variety of shrubs have been planted to create a loose and natural effect with visual interest at all seasons. The current owner is dedicated to the continual enhancement of and preservation and protection of this unusual property.
Persons associated with the garden include Joe Lambert (landscape architect, 1939); Charles Dilbeck (architect, 1939); Mr. and Mrs. Charles Underwood (former owners, 1939-1945); and Mr. and Mrs. Howell Smith (former owners, 1948-1970).
The folder includes worksheets, garden and site plans, a plant list, information about architect Charles Dilbeck, and other information.
