Notes:
Native plants and trees predominate in the gardens that surround the award-winning modern house on a two-thirds acre lot. The house was designed to evoke a settler's house that had been expanded over time with stone walls mortared with slurry, a metal roof and exterior chimney. The gardens feature curving beds, native limestone walls and patio with a lap pool outlined with the same stone. At first the lawns were planted with Prairie Buffalo grass developed at Texas A&M University. When this variety did not succeed it was replaced with El Toro grass. The Osborn Garden was included in one of the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Garden Center's annual tours.
Persons associated with the garden include Stephen K. Domigan (landscape architect, 1992); Robert Steinbomer and Donna Osborn (architects, 1992).
