General:
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).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, a garden plan, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
Established in 1954, this 4.5 acre garden site and home are now owned by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Garden restoration work is being undertaken by the Garden Club of Houston. The house and gardens are situated between two verdant native bayou ravines. The garden's design reflects the classical, Palladian style of the house. Formal, symmetrical gardens tangent to the residence dissolve into more rustic "rooms" with descriptive names such as the Waterfall, Folly, and Peacock gardens. Although there are many formal garden areas, native trees and other plants have also been retained, and the landscaping was intended to supplement the natural setting. The gardens are organized in colorful bands of azaleas, camellias, crynums and other bulbs, gardenias, native pines, magnolias (including two landmark ones), and sycamores. Water features, including a swimming pool as well as other pools, form another significant aspect of the garden's design.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Ralph Ellis Gunn (landscape designer); W. E. Bulkley (landscape designer); John F. Staub (architect); Hugo Neuhaus (architect); the Garden Club of Houston (advisors, 1998 to date); Jon Emerson & Associates (landscape architects, 1998 to date); and Thompson & Hanson (landscape architects and contractors, 1998 to date).

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.
