Sealy Garden (Dallas, Texas)
In 2005, the current owners acquired a home in a new suburb, the Broadmoor Parks Addition, established in 2002 or 2003. Their 1.2 acre property offered the new owners the chance to develop its garden features. The formal garden is composed of long stretches of lawns, clipped hedges, and stone garden walks. Magnolias add shade to the property, and azaleas are well established. Lawns surround the property, bordering the circle drive at the home's entrance, and growing adjacent to the family's pool at the rear of the estate. Numerous planter boxes at the rear of the property create visual interest through their varying heights, establishing a more complex topography for this naturally flat sight.
Fennel and dill plantings and their blossoms attract butterflies in the spring.
Garden features include a brick fountain, a bronze sculpture fountain ("Fauna Flutur"), a wall fountain, gated arbor, shaded slate terrace, and a waterfall.
Persons associated with the garden include: Richard and Jinger Heath (former owners, 2003-2005); Marshall Moore (landscape designer, 2003?).
The folder includes worksheets photocopies of articles and other information.
