We’ve been caring for our garden in the Brandon and Perkins neighborhood for 27 years. This area has a long history of beautiful gardens with exotic trees, dogwoods, maples, rhododendrons and massive camellias that are still standing. Throughout the seasons there are trees loaded with berries and fruits, fragrant flowers or shrubs, all this variety creating interesting shapes, textures and colors.
Upon entering our copper gate, a sweeping flagstone pathway and a massive camellia on the left leads you to a sunny patio. Proteas and a pathway of acacia, “Cousin It,” takes you to the grassy yard and pond. An ancient cherry tree is flanked by maples and assorted shade loving plants. In the center is a clematis arbor which provides another place to sit, relax and enjoy the gardens.
Of particular note are the fencing, copper gate and copper front door all created by the talented master carpenter, artist/homeowner, Roger Bowles.
