Subtle Elegance

South of Broad

This downtown garden has been transformed into a tranquil retreat, tucked beyond a beautiful iron gate. A floating brick walkway is flanked with lush tropical foliage, complete with water lilies, ferns, and white tree-form hydrangeas. Several copper scuppers provide the serene sound of falling water, blocking out any busyness of the adjacent street. The garden generously opens up to a bluestone patio and swimming pool, providing a wonderful space for entertaining and relaxation alike. A mixture of palms, grasses, and banana trees soften the border, and carry on the tropical composition into the sunnier areas of the garden. The homeowner has a particular fondness for container gardening, so the garden is filled with a large variety of pots, each with its own style and planted with interesting succulents and vibrant color. The containers are scattered throughout the garden, finding a home in any nook available. The garden emanates an overall elegance with the simplicity of the plantings as well as the hardscape patterns and material.
