Orchid Garden (Houston, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 12 digital images. Images 001-012 copyrighted by Fran Brennan.
General:
An urban patio garden with approximately 1,400 orchids, ponds, furnishings and decorative items, and 30 more mostly tropical plants is a conservatory. Previously the owner was a tenant in one of five modern one-story apartments that were arranged in a horizontal row, each with its own brick walled patio. He bought the building and eventually converted all the apartments into his home while the five patios were reconfigured into one 97-foot-long by 12-foot-wide garden room. An outer walkway that used to lead to each patio entrance now is a plant nursery backed by a tall wooden fence with acrylic greenhouse roofing covering the whole structure. Fans, vents and heaters are used to control the temperature. The brick walls between the old patios were partially disassembled into steps that hold plants, suggesting ruins. Leftover bricks were re-used as table supports and as paving material. The orchid collection was started in 1967 with one plant that didn't survive. Now potted orchids hang from the metal beams that support the roof, some in baskets fashioned from wire mesh that also forms shelves on the boards used as tabletops. More pots of orchids are attached to the standing brick walls, all in staggered patterns to improve air circulation. Complementary tropical plants are in pots or planted in beds. The garden room furniture and features mostly came from Mexico, Guatemala, and Spain, in rustic or hand-crafted styles.

Persons associated with the garden include: Joseph A. Ralmutto (former owner, 1960-1964); Bill Bartlett (owner, planner, designer, 1964- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
This southern garden of approximately one acre has evolved through three generations of one family. Its current form began to take shape in the late 1980s with the construction of a conservatory off the living room of the home, which resulted in the garden becoming the focal point of the house. The same architect, Lewis A. Graeber, III, then designed a pool, walks, and renovations to the guest cottage. Although a few old trees and hollies were saved, a new garden plan took shape to reflect one of the owner's fascination with the elements of form, texture, line, and space. The result was a design intended to contrast stark, linear branches against evergreen geometric forms for winter interest. Sculptural silhouettes of styrax trees juxtaposed with mounded boxwoods give the garden a sense of boldness and purpose, a contrast even more dramatic in winter. The trees are arranged to form a tunnel that draws the eye to a fountain. Just beyond the fountain is a lush layering of evergreens that entices the viewer to slow down and experience the peacefulness of the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Lewis A. Graeber, III (architect, 1988-1998); Jimmy Graham (designer, 1987 to date); Jerry Attaway (horticulturist, 1999 to date); and Thomas Woodward (sculptor, 2000).
