Notes:
Ravine Garden is a two-acre private residence in Dallas, Texas, with a deep ravine and creek running through the property, with a hidden rose garden across the ravine that is accessed via stone steps and paths. There are several seating areas within the garden for dining and visiting. A Camellia House (greenhouse) designed by Dallas architect Enslie O. Oglesby sits atop a round concrete cistern that provides water for the plants inside. One area of the garden has children's play equipment which the owners will change eventually.
The carport planted with wisteria and climbing roses is modeled after an arbor the owners admired in Italy. Family heirlooms are featured in the garden, including a monogrammed iron gate and a Chinese sculpture.
The owner's wanted a garden that suits the topography of the property. As such, they have left woodlands intact by the ravine and as a screen for the children's play area. The rose garden was planted for beauty, scent and cutting.
Persons associated with the garden include Naud Burnett & Partners (landscape architect of rose garden, dates unknown); Boyd Heiderich Bargas, Inc. (landscape architect for front, patio and terrace gardens, dates unknown); Enslie O. Oglesby (architect for Camellia greenhouse, dates unknown).
