Ridglea North Virtual Garden Tour 2020

  • Wednesday, May 20, 2020 1:54 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


    Welcome to the 6th and final installment of our RNNA Virtual Garden Tour Series. This week we are featuring two yards with quite different concepts. One is a serene, calming, adult escape and the other is a fun, informal family playground. The two reflect the diversity of our Ridglea North neighborhood. We hope you have enjoyed virtually viewing some of our amazing Ridglea North gardens and we applaud our neighbors who have taken their time to video and photograph their yards. Hopefully, you will join us next spring for the actual RNNA Garden Tour.


    Featured: The Ebeiers on Locke

    We live in our backyard year-round! When we bought our house we figured out, after replacing the grass three years in a row, we needed a new plan. We added the patio and fireplace and installed turf. We are now maintenance free and love it! We use the fireplace nine months out of the year. It’s the best thing we have done! ~Lynne & Bobby


    Featured: The Parkers on Curzon

    This video was produced solely by the three Parker kids!

    Hi! We’re the Bruns Family. We want to show you around our back yard. A couple of unique features to our back yard we think you might enjoy are looking at how the automatic pool cover works and our playhouse tucked into trees and the garden. ~Lori Bruns

    Featured: Susan's Shaded Courtyard

    Our backyard at our home in the 6400 block of Curzon is made more manageable by the addition of a wooden fence that creates a “courtyard” of sorts close to the house, and an open grassy area at the back of the property. The addition of decking, flagstone walkways and small patio, and a covered pavilion provide areas for seating and shelter from harsh Texas weather.

    Container plantings are designed for shade, much of which is provided by a large crepe myrtle and several mature photinias trimmed to grow as trees with high canopies. ~ Susan

    Featured: Joe and Matt's Garden 

    We moved in two years ago and love Ridglea North! :-) When we first saw the house, it took a minute to understand how it sits on the lot. That’s why we included the aerial shot to show how the garden snakes around. The birds in the tree are three juvenile downy woodpeckers, playing one morning last year. We included photos of different years of annuals. We change the front beds the most. Pansies in the Winter, Summer, zinnias, periwinkle, rock rose and undecided for 2020! We meant to mention that Mark Nicol has the best grass. He is campaigning for everyone to do winter rye next Winter. The last shot is pansies thriving in Ridglea north! :-) Any questions about particular plants please let us know! :-) Thanks for watching! :-) ~ Matt, Joe, & Lucky




    Featured: The Patterson Family's Tree of Hope 

    The Patterson Family believes in letting your light shine no matter what. With the Tree of Hope, we want people to know that there is still plenty of light in the world, and that we will get through this together. God bless America! ~ Travis Patterson

    Featured Garden: Janis' Backyard Transformation

    When we moved to this house I had a blank palette, as the back yard was just dirt. I had some ideas about how I wanted the back garden to look but was taking my time. A drainage problem gave me the necessary push, as our solution, from Elizabeth Anna, added a dry creek bed, a walking bridge, stone paths and some berms.

    I wanted a wild garden with native plants that has a Cottage feel and would be both organic & water wise. I also really like direct seed planting.

    After adding a few anchoring plants, with design help from Elizabeth Anna, I just started exploring flowers that would grow here. I also planted some herbs and artichokes and I’m big on bulbs.

    Really I just focus on what I like (flowers & herbs), keep trying new plants, and let the success and failure of my plantings lead me. I like to think of my garden as painting with plants. ~Janis Jolcuvar


    Featured Garden: Verlie's Coastal Oasis

    I love the ocean & beach, but since I don’t live on the beach, I decided to create a coastal oasis in my back yard. I hope you enjoy a tour of my back yard. The hot tub serves as my “ocean” and the decor reminds me of where I can relax. ~Verlie Edwards
