The next gardens our tour bus headed for were the Wolford Garden and the Hegi Garden. The Wolford Garden struck me as a touch pretentious at times, but had some really great hardscape details and interesting atypical plantings for the Dallas area. Very reminiscent of a high-end Balinese hotel with tropical plants, an exotic looking pool and plush outdoor living spaces. No doubt about it, I bet this is a great party house!
The Hegi garden was a bit more introspective with woodland walks and a solemn cavernous outdoor room. Possibly a bit more mosquito prone, since the garden was edged with a boggy creek, but with a feeling of just having discovered some long lost remnant of native woodland.
