Unique Gardens: The Garden as Playground for Self-Expression

Personal gardens seduce us with the view into the gardener’s heart and mind. The plants, their placement, their symmetry and asymmetry, their order and color reveal the sensibility of the gardener. Landscape architect Sarah Newbery will give an illustrated lecture about such gardens and offer suggestions on how we can make our own gardens more personal and rewarding. She will then lead a tour of several private gardens in Houston’s Heights neighborhood that are distinct reflections of their owners’ gardening passions. Tour-goers will be provided with maps and will drive or carpool to the gardens.  The tour will conclude with a garden reception.

Sarah Newbery is an architect and landscape architect. In 2013, she was named project director for Memorial Park Master Planning. Previously, she worked at Curtis & Windham Architects. She received master’s degrees in both architecture and landscape architecture at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.
