Urban-scale gardens of Charleston SC often manipulate exterior space with design sleight of hand, by placing a home’s primary entertainment space into a narrow side yard. The technique was used on this narrow suburban lot; vehicular circulation and service functions are kept to one side of the lot, allowing the main garden spaces to flourish on the other side. The southern theme is further reflected through the symmetrical layout, closely cropped hedging, and billowy contextual plantings. Custom fencing, eye-catching sculptures, and unique stone paving treatments convey feelings of artistry and enduring quality.
