A critic looks at the best gardens near the National Mall in DC - Washington Post
To understand their power, walk the Mall for a half-hour on a hot day, then duck into the
Mary Livingston Ripley Garden
, which fills a narrow strip of land between the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Arts and Industries Building. Opened in 1988, this space was slated to become a parking lot. But instead, it became one of the city’s most lovely hidden gems, a short, serpentine path of greenery that is the aesthetic opposite of the Mall. The Mall is straight and open, while this little parcel is full of curves and nooks. The Mall is monocultural, while the earth here teems with a diversity of plant life. The Mall focuses the eyes on a few big, symbolic architectural monuments, while the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden is all about the small details of organic life.The monumental core of the city could be full of gardens like these, but all too often the default to parking, especially around the Capitol, wins the day. On the slopes of Capitol Hill, and around its base, parking has corrupted civic space that could be green, environmentally constructive and easy to use. Even a small gesture can work wonders.

Sculptures, including Yayoi Kusama’s polka-dot-covered “Pumpkin,” center, are on display at the manicured Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
Across the wide expanse of Independence Avenue SW from the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden is Earth Day Park
, its homelier twin along the axis of the Ninth Street Expressway. It is less green, less tended and more basic in its plantings, and the noise of cars is ever present. But it is land reclaimed from the nihilism of concrete and one is thankful for it, warts and all. The park also leads to
behind the Federal Aviation Administration building, a tree-filled rectangle that wants some love, but is delightful, none the less, for being so hidden and so off the usual tourist’s track.
[Here’s what might have been built in Washington, but wasn’t]
The older buildings along the Mall were often raised above street level, on plinths, a now out-of-fashion design idea that nevertheless encouraged the incorporation of garden spaces that stand apart from the civic topography. Some of these offer ideal escapes. Along the south face of the National Gallery of Art’s West Building are two large fountains, surrounded by garden enclosures, and you might pass by them a thousand times without noticing how inviting they are. If you want to eat a sandwich, or just take a break from a run or a bike ride, climb the steps and find space on one of the benches nestled in the embrace of the old, neoclassical building. The Mall and all its tumult will seem a thousand miles away. Marvin Joseph

Even Ripley wouldn’t believe this stuff.

Regina Ripley and Joy Hanold work together to share the beautiful community garden.
Regina knows color drifts catch the eye.
Kingwood Garden Center, located at 1216 Stonehollow Drive and owned by Bob and Nancy Robertson, has been awarded the Kingwood Garden Club’s Community Enhancement Award. Joy Hanold, manager of the center, accepted the award and gave credit to Regina Ripley for the beautiful curbside garden in front of the store. Ripley, a master gardener, is a former member of Kingwood Garden Club. She is an expert in horticulture and a talented landscape designer. For the last seven years, she has put together a plan for the center’s garden in the fall and spring. She starts by evaluating the existing perennial color of the beds. She then considers what is available in inventory at the garden center.

She then, considers what is available in inventory at the garden center. Ripley’s knowledge of trees, shrubs, and flowers and her instinct for color and texture combinations result in large drifts of color that attract people driving past the store to stop, park their car, and take a stroll in the garden.
The garden is also used as a test garden. Ripley sometimes introduces new plants to the garden to see how well they do with the hot sun and drought conditions in the Houston area. Sea Urchin is a new sedum that is currently being tested in the garden.
Perennials in the garden include Rose of Sharon, Persimmon tree, Blue Asters, Satsuma tree, Vitex tree, dwarf Pomegranate, Rosemary, Texas Star Hibiscus, Mystic Spires... (Your Houston News)Dec 30, 2015
