Ries House

-A A +A
1935, Henry Eggers and Stanley Morse. 737 Franklin St.

Jane Silverstein Ries, grande dame of Colorado's landscape architects, transformed this house by designing a unique and all-encompassing garden. Her campaign to replace lawns and “useless” banks with terraces and walled gardens is reflected in much area residential landscaping as well as her own home.
