The Garden Conservancy’s Open Days program will be held this year on Saturday, March 29 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Two gardens and houses by Curtis & Windham will be featured on the tour along with others representing the great variety of garden design happening in Houston today. 18 West Lane is a contemporary garden whose design showcases a wonderful modern sculpture collection and a renovated 1950s era Bolton and Barnstone house. The house and gardens at 3965 Del Monte are representative of a more formal French influence with fanciful menagerie of animal sculptures and garden rooms.
The Garden Conservancy’s mission is to preserve America’s exceptional gardens for public enjoyment and education. The money raised by the 2014 Houston Open Day goes to benefit Peckerwood Gardens in Hempstead. Peckerwood is one of a select few gardens to be a preservation project of the Garden Conservancy and is known as “a living laboratory of plants in the heart of Texas”.
