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).

Bayou Bluff (Houston, Texas)

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The 7.75 acres property was part of 100 acres the W.T. Carter family purchased as a weekend retreat from the city of Houston in 1929. Later subdivided into smaller parcels, the current owners have bought neighboring properties as they came on the market in order to triple the size of their property and recreate a native habitat along Buffalo Bayou. Invasive plants and vines have been removed from otherwise undisturbed areas above the bayou, including non-native ornamental escapees from previous gardens. The hydrology of the property was another concern: the formal landscaped areas had to be able to withstand occasional flooding and the high bank above the bayou that was going native needed to be stabilized. Native trees including burr oak, Live oak, and Mexican plum were planted to stabilize the soil for butterfly and wildflower gardens and were augmented with walking trails. A wooden retaining wall was installed. Native wood fern, Turk's cap, American beauty berry, lantana and butterfly bush were planted in the organized beds on the adjacent properties. Gravel that allows run-off has replaced hardscape in the formal courtyards and gravel swales for run-off throughout the property double as walking paths when dry.
The circa 2005 house replacing the original house on the lot is approached over a small bridge spanning a ravine then entered through formal contemporary courtyards with high walls draped with ivy and bougainvillea and bordered by hedges of jasmine and camellias. Behind the house there is a reflecting pool plaza with massive container plantings of geraniums, variegated ivy and foxtail ferns. The lawn in back is bordered by colorful azaleas planted in the 1990's bordered by a low stone wall and featuring a small stone Hindu temple. A swimming pool with a contemporary sculptural fountain was added when the house on one adjacent property was demolished.
Local conservationist Terry Hershey is a neighbor and was instrumental in preserving Buffalo Bayou in the 1960's. She encouraged all the neighbors to leave the land adjacent to the bayou in a natural state that would support wildlife, and organized the Bayou Preservation Association. The formal plaza and landscaped azalea garden of this property transition to native plantings for the benefit of local wildlife, including armadillos, raccoons, barn owls and other birds, butterflies, and possibly coyotes.
Persons associated with the garden include W. T. Carter, Jr., W.T. Carter, III & Victor N. Carter (former owners, 1929-1956); Sanford McCormick (former owner, 1980-1993); Nelson Steenland (former owner, 1956-1986); Jan & David Samuels (former owners, 1986-2006); David T. Searls (former owner, 1957-1972); Catherine Searls Abercrombie (former owner, 1972-1998); McDugald Steele (Landscape Architect, 2010- ); Terry Hershey (conservationist, 1993- ); Eric Ruckstuhl (horticulturist and hydrologist, 2005- ).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Jardin De Mil Flores (San Antonio, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Bexar County -- San Antonio
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet,plant list, and site plan.
General:
Established in 2003, and located on a busy intersection in the heart of Alamo Heights neighborhood, the garden is located on 1/3 acre. Mexican courtyards inspired the owners. Blooming plants serve to soften the adobe home's golden yellow color and sharp angles. To create a feeling of privacy from the intersection, the owners created a patio area directly in front of the home's entrance. Concrete benches designed by the owner frame the patio and serve to complete the feel of an outdoor room. Black Mexican lava rocks, large river rock, and antique bricks comprise the patio. The garden contains mostly drought-resistant, sun-tolerant plants and perennial beds. Several succulents such as Yucca aloifolia (Spanish Bayonet) and Yucca gloriosa (Spanish Dagger) provide a backdrop to beds of red Hamelia patens (Mexican Fire Bush) and yello Tecoma stans (Esperanza).
People associated with this property include: Dana Moessner (patio designer, 1996); and Alejandro Mendoza (gardener, 1996-2006).
