Bradshaw Garden (Little Rock, Arkansas)
This compact, 20 x 40 foot courtyard garden, originally designed by Robert H. Wickard and established about 1978, contains many features that belie its small footprint. Among these are a lap pool; multiple seating areas; art works; a variety of annuals, perennials, and shrubs; and both container plantings and garden beds. A steep, rocky, wooded hillside rising above the garden's exterior wall extends the garden's dimensions and provides a "wild" aspect that both contrasts with and complements the controlled space of the garden itself. In more recent years the garden has received additional design work by P. Allen Smith.
Persons associated with the property include Robert H. Wickard (architect and landscape designer, 1978); Shirley Bradshaw (former owner, ca. 1978-1986); and P. Allen Smith (landscape designer, after 1986).
