For this home situated in the heart of the Park Cities, the owners wanted a quiet private area separated from the busy street. A European-style interior courtyard provides an arbor, a fountain and room to entertain. Tall myrtle hedges and lush plantings buffer the street views from the large front windows.
On half of the Frito-Lay corporate campus in Plano, TX, we used perennials collected from the co-founder’s personal garden to memorialize the founder. For the employee lunch area, a Jens Jensen-style council ring was designed in cooperation with architect Dan Shipley. Native Texas limestone walls and steps cascade down the slopes, intermingled with flowering perennials and shade trees.
