Place:
L. F. Corrigan Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a worksheet and site plan.
General:
This medium-sized urban garden has an unstructured woodland appeal. Mature plantings of azaleas and hydrangeas--punctuated by Japanese maples, dogwood, yoshino cherry and "soulangiana" magnolia--anchor the garden design. Free form beds of annual color compliment drifts of fern and hosta. Features include: a wall fountain draped with wisteria; a free-form swimming pool with rock outcroppings and stone foot bridge; a water fountain with rock rapids adjoining the pool; antique Balanese palace door surround; a bronze sculpture of granddaughter and pet; and a hexagonal glass conservatory with seating and working areas.
The garden was re-documented in 2011. Three significant changes to the garden have been made since 2003 including the growth of yaupon hollies clipped to look like one large chicken and two smaller chicks and the addition of a large collection of succulents in the solarium and a new design for the front courtyard in 2009.
People associated with this property include: William Morris (former owner, 1930-1958), Arthur Berger (landscaping, 1959); Naud Burnett (pool and landscape, 1972); Armstrong-Berger, Inc. (solarium, 1993); James Luedeman (landscaping, 1993-2007);and Barvo Walker (sculptor).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, architectural plans, and additional documentation.
General:
Situated on a narrow half acre property established in 2001, the Holland Garden serves as an excellent example of a small urban garden that maximizes limited space. Though the residence is only 25 feet on either side from neighboring homes, a sense of privacy is achieved with the use of hardscaping and architectural plantings. A cobblestone motor court at the front of the house greets visitors with raised flower beds and container plantings. A shade garden runs the length of the house along the east wall of the property, which also features two vertical gardens flanking the wall. Stepping stones lead through the shade garden to the main garden which features a limestone terrace and a raised 20-yard lap pool with spa tub and fountain.
Lambert Landscape Company received the 33rd Annual Environmental Improvement Grand Award from the Associated Landscape Contractors of America for their design of the Holland Garden. Designed to complement the contemporary Texas hill country architectural style of the home, the garden reflects the clean modern lines of the residence by incorporating limestone and salvaged brick hardscaping and architectural plantings of bamboo, equisetum and red yucca juxtaposed with native plantings of cedar elm, sumac, yaupon, leucophyllum, rudbeckia and hesperaloe to soften the lines of hardscaping and provide privacy screening.
Additional garden features include a granite sculpture carved by Texan artist Jesús Moroles, and stone planters designed by Frank Lloyd Wright which are used throughout the property.
Entities associated with the garden include: Frank Welch (architect, 2000-2001); Paul Fields (landscape architect, 2000-2001); Jesus Moroles (sculptor, 2006); and Lambert's Landscape (landscape design, horticulturists, 2001).

Dallas -- Dr. and Mrs. Leonard M. Riggs, Jr. Residence

United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas -- Dallas
Dr. and Mrs. Leonard M. Riggs, Jr. Residence (Dallas, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
33 digital images (2014-2016), 6 prints and 1 file folder
General:
In 2013 the owners remodeled the landscape of their half acre property with a mid-century modern house by building two terraces that fitted into the terrain behind the house, and a small stone terrace for fishing in the creek. To meet a FEMA requirement for their location in a 100 year flood plain they added a framed glass flood wall that would not obstruct the view. Views of Turtle Creek and the neighboring golf course were important, as well as sunset views that could be enjoyed during outside entertaining or quiet evenings. Another requirement was a heat tolerant garden that conserves water, solved by favoring native plants such as sedge, cypress and the existing mature pecan trees. The sedge, juncus and acorus watered with drip irrigation remain evergreen and are mowed only once each year.Additional plants include mondo grass, hellebores, wax myrtle and Japanese yew supplemented with crushed granite that was also used to pave over a defunct swimming pool. Gingko, Japanese maple, limelight hydrangea, holly, iris, and a water garden in a polished concrete fountain enhance the modern hardscape and refurbished Tennessee Crab Orchard stone that was reused for the patio and entry. The terraces with fire pit and water feature and patio with a concrete-topped dining table complement the original intention of the architect to meld indoor with outdoor spaces.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Gillis Thomas (former owners, 1971-2013); David Hayes (sculptor); William T. Arterburn (Tary) (landscape architect, 2013); Scott Wells Lyons (architect, -2011).
