Place:
Diamond G. J. Ranch (Blanco, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Blanco
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The multi-acre property along the Little Blanco River was ranched and farmed for five generations by members of the Birdseil family before the current owners acquired it and began renovating a native stone house, a half-timbered and adobe house, and outbuildings for their ranching and a quarter horse operation. The gardens they have installed include native plants and other species adapted to a generally hot and dry climate with unpredictable rainfall. The modernized buildings, outbuildings, stone wall and fencing blend with the landscape and make use of native cedar, rocks and fossils found on the property. Shade is provided by fig trees planted by the owners, live oaks and arbors constructed of rough cedar logs. A native garden to the east of the main house includes Mexican plum, native persimmon, acacia, Mexican salvia, agave cactus and prickly pear. On the south side of the house a bird sanctuary and herb garden contain more drought tolerant salvias, daisies, prairie clovers, silver germander, allium, rosemary, thyme and sage, with an old livestock watering trough now used by birds. A bird bath centers a circular old-fashioned garden with beds of larkspur, poppies, catnip, Shasta daisies, old roses, salvia, gaura and euphorbia. Stockade fences are draped in morning glory and queen's crown vine, another native plant.
Along the entrance road there is a circa 1870 cemetery with the remains of six members of a pioneer family that drowned trying to cross the Little Blanco River.
Persons associated with the garden include: Herbert Bindseil and members of the Bindseil family (former owners, 1860-1991), Joe Brooks (architect, 1991-present), Sarah Westkaemper Lake (landscape designer, 2000-present).

The Hylands (Dallas, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
12 digital images (2014, 2017) and 1 file folder.
General:
The mock Tudor house was built by the owners of this small urban property in 1993 and the gardens include favorite plants that are mostly gray, pink, mauve or purple, an award-winning collection of cactus and succulents, and accessories from parents' gardens. The front garden has dwarf artemesia, lantana, dusty miller, crepe myrtle, pond cypress, holly and hawthorn with salvia and petunias adding more color. There is a lush curved border near the street that screens the house, planted with cypress, firebush, spirea, salvia and deep purple wandering Jew. Stepping stones lead to the back garden which features a Roman pool that is shallow at both ends. Flat Austin stone forms a patio at one end of the pool with a raised stone bed with knock-out roses along one side. There are many planted containers of cactus and bougainvillea, shaded beds with annual begonia, Lenten rose, azalea, ferns and hydrangeas, and a sunny wall with climbing silverthorn and cactus along the other side or the pool. Pots of succulents and cactus fill the back porch.

Place:
United States of America -- Texas -- Bexar County -- San Antonio
Selig Garden (San Antonio, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
13 digital images (2017-2018) and 1 file folder.
General:
The owner is a plant collector who has found ways to grow varieties not usually suited to the semi-tropical climate of San Antonio. After the 2007 purchase of the historic district Greek Revival stone house on a double city lot with one old sabal palm it took three years to develop non-traditional garden rooms in the four microclimates that comprise the property. An Australian grapefruit hedge, agave, other gray and silver desert plants, rosemary and cacti are planted along the sidewalk and in the front garden. At the end of the covered front porch sitting area there is a limestone obelisk focal point; an armillary sphere in the enclosed front garden is nearly hidden by rosemary that blooms from October until April. The gravel driveway is conceived as an allée bordered on both sides with prickly pear cactus and other xeric plants. Branching off at the end of the gravel there is a teak bench shaded by the neighbors' pecan trees and framed by large containers with clipped white oleanders along with boxwood, seasonal bulbs and tubers, beauty bushes, nandina, Leyland cypress, and a loquat tree. Another container and tropical garden lines the driveway to the parking area.

A kitchen garden behind the house on a paved patio has Meyer lemon, bay laurel, seating and many pots of herbs, perennials and white narcissus. An antique limestone and bronze sundial purchased in England is the focal point for another garden room outside the guest house/office. This is a tropical garden with varieties of banana, palm, fern, a Brazilian pepper tree, ginger and ground covers. The gardens on this property emphasize foliage, shape and scent rather than colorful flowers. Intense summer sun and heat, a yearly freeze and widely swinging temperatures have been mastered by planting clusters of tropicals, bulbs under flowering perennials, and herbs and vegetables in containers.

Persons associated with the garden include: Minnie and Susie Martinez (former owners, no dates given); Peter and Jocelyn Selig (owners, 2007- ).
