Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet; site plan; copies of photographs; and plant list.
General:
Behind a green wall of Nellie R. Stevens holly and Little Gem magnolias, an Italian Renaissance style villa and garden exists on one acre. The owners wanted to build a "forever" home and garden for themselves, children, and grandchildren. The garden incorporates a series of outdoor rooms in the European manner. Rectangular lead planters with formally clipped boxwood frame the wide entry steps to the house. A terrace of four colors of sandstone forms a three-dimensional effect as an approach to a porch. The core feature of this Italian Renaissance style garden, an allée of standard Natchez crepe myrtle and a linear parterre of clipped boxwood with Italian terra-cotta olive jars lies along its main axis. On the west side of the house, one enters a series of three different outdoor rooms connected by open iron gates. The first is centered by an oval parterre and a wall of espaliered pears and magnolias trained into an arch. The second outdoor room is a terrace of French limestone and a rectangular mosaic pool. The third room is an allée of Savannah hollies leading to the garden house. The formal back garden is centered by an allée of crepe myrtle joining the veranda to the magnolia-lined room, filled by the celadon mosaic swimming pool and cherub fountain. Off the central axis to the west, one walks down three grass steps to a sunken garden with bay laurel trees. The east sunken garden mirrors the west in symmetry, but has a thick lawn of fescue grass. The back garden to the east of the pool is a sun-filled parterre of boxwood for summer vegetables, herbs, and flowers. A surrounding circle of ten-foot tall iron pillars hosts repeat blooming white Sombreuil roses trained into swags by chains connecting the pillars. An allée of East Palatka holly exists on the east side of the property with crushed stone walkway.
People associated with this property include: Richard Robertson (architect, 1995-2000); and Paul Fields, ASLA of Lambert Landscape Company (landscape architect, 2000-2007).

General:
This property's full gardens have graced Tyler, Texas since 1950. With the private home and gardens situated on Tyler's renowned Azalea and Spring Flower Trail, the gardens provide a city showcase - especially due to the abundance of brilliant daffodils. The azaleas, other spring blooms and towering trees draw visitors to the landscape throughout springtime. Seasonal plantings are enjoyed during the summer, fall and winter months.
Major tree plantings include Shumard Red Oaks, Water Oaks, Green Maples, Crepe Myrtles (Natchez) and Dogwoods. Wintergreen Boxwoods and American Holly provide hedge borders, while a variety of vines - including Fig Ivy, English Ivy and Trumpet Vine - supply other planting dimensions.
The backyard pool is surrounded by topiaries accented by wrought iron furniture. Sculptures include a stone St. Francis and a royal metal frog with a crown. Other features include fern baskets, arbors and brick walkways.
Persons associated with the garden include Naud Burnett (landscape architect, 1955); Noel Pullam (landscape architect, 1975); Selena Short (landscape designer, 2000s- ); Johnny & John Carter (masonry, 2016).

General:
When purchased in 1993 there was a pecan tree growing in the otherwise unkempt one-tenth acre property that had a neglected 1850 apartment building and a second building, now a guest house. The owner designed four garden rooms: a keyhole-shaped boxwood parterre, rose and vegetable beds, an open lawn with borders, and a fountain surrounded by semi-tropical perennials. Six hedges were planted as backdrop and for privacy, including euonymus, Japanese yew and lavender crape myrtle. A washed gravel patio with all-weather furniture, planted containers and an outdoor sink were installed between the two buildings. The parterre and neighboring rose garden can be seen from one end of the patio, the fountain from the other. The perennial bed surrounding the fountain contains farfugium (leopard plant), fatsia, papyrus, and a camellia with a fig vine covering the wall behind. Roses, azaleas, camellias, and a hibiscus provide nearly year round color. In the mild climate the owner sows lettuce seeds in September and harvests greens until it's too hot; the vegetables are replaced by celosia grown from saved seed. Other vegetables and herbs include carrots, beets, Swiss chard, radishes, a permanent rosemary and basil.

Persons associated with the garden include: the Dixon family (former owners, 1850-1920); Mrs. Alma Kellogg (former owner, 1920-1990); Cane Callon (former owner, 1990-1993); Robert Drane (garden assistant, 2000- )
