Scope and Contents:

General:
Established in 1935, this garden owned by landscape architect Henry Fletcher Kenney. Features included an espaliered Magnolia grandiflora, cedars near the entrance, and a stream bank across the road. An enclosed herb and rose garden was located on the first terrace. A long path leads past the terraced pool to the woods. Kenney utilized ground covers, mulches, and deeply incorporated humus in order to conserve water. "Water for the pool area was rain-trapped in successive basins along the dry hillside cut and each downspout has its Chinese bathtub to catch every drop." Deep unheated pits were used for tender potted material. Below the parking area lie the vegetable and cutting gardens. (The Garden Club of America Annual Meeting, 1954, pp. 30-32). The garden was reported vanished in 1987.
Persons associated with the property include: Henry Fletcher Kenney (landscape architect, 1954).

Scope and Contents:
This file contains 31 digital images and 1 folder.
General:
The design of this 1.22 acre property echoes the landscape of the low mountain range it is situated on top of. In 1940, the original owner commissioned Lutah Maria Riggs, Santa Barbara's first female licensed architect and one of the first women in California to be named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, to build the house, garage, and landscape on the property. The current owner, an architectural historian, purchased the property in 1994 after the original owner's death and has made minimal changes to the gardens in order to preserve and showcase the work of Lutah Maria Riggs.
This property exemplifies Riggs' design sensibilities and the influence of European landscapes that often include sculpted hills, valleys and artfully framed views. She was known for her ability to integrate the functionality of a house with that of its landscape. In the design of this property, Riggs intentionally fitted the landscape to match the surrounding mountainous aesthetic. Naturalistic stone pathways connect the main entrance to the lower gardens, allowing easy access to the entire site. Native plant material, California oaks, and the natural woodlands provide the structure to this organically shaped garden. The intentionally irregular design of rock formations such as rock gardens, dry walls, and path boulders to emphasize the view of the mountains. The organic nature of the site is also emphasized through the use of unpainted fencing and gates, a small stone patio, a small water feature, and large boulders placed along the pathways to provide potential seating for visitors. A water garden, succulent plants, lavender, salvia, and honeysuckle can be found throughout the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Charles W. Davis (former owners, 1940-1994); Lutah Maria Riggs (landscape architect, 1940).
