Monet Garden

This is absolutely one of my favorite properties. This “Monet” garden was inspired by the owners’ trip to France. Our discussion and my sketch led to this beautiful garden that perfectly showcases the seasons. We relocated an existing fountain that didn’t work properly to the center of this space and converted it to a planted container. The tiered centerpiece is planted with showy succulents, while the plantings around the fountain are a free flowing mix of boxwoods, perennials and annuals. The many textures and colors attract bees, butterflies and yellow finches. My customers, J & J, love reds and yellows, so every garden design needs to incorporate these colors. In addition to the center garden, the area is ringed by 40 containers that lead from the house to the gazebo and pool, and then down to the natural garden on the Chattahoochee River.
