The Glazer Gardens and Bocce Court

 


Based on a concept design by OUA and landscape architect William Mizell, The Glazer Gardens and Bocce Court is an exciting addition to the campus landscape that establishes a student gardening area and a lawn encircled by an array of native and naturalized plants. Returning students will be welcomed in the fall with the red and gold colors of the Persimmon, along with the purple shades of the Muhly and Fountain Grasses. During the winter months, fruits of Satsuma, Honey Locust, and Kumquats will arrive. Upon the return of spring, coppery red blooms of the Louisiana Iris along with the pink blooms of the Knockout Rose and the fragrant blossoms of the Kumquat, Pomegranate, Pawpaw and Satsuma will fill the garden. Shades of red, gold, purple and orange are a maintained theme throughout the garden. Included in the garden will be a Bocce Court as well as seating areas for reading and reflection.

Patrick Michaels, landscape architect, of Manning Architects has worked to create not only a space of interest throughout the year with fruit and blossoms, but also to contribute to campus species diversity. The Design Team has worked with Steve Darwin, Tulane Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Director of Tulane University Herbarium, on the planting selection to ensure a good sample for diversity of native and naturalized plants within our campus. The Honey Locust and Sugarcane were plants selected to provide an educational resource to Tulane students studying local diversity.
