The design for this Myers Park garden was inspired by the restrained elegance of the historic residence, the beauty of the site and the aesthetic of the homeowners. Sweeps of ornamental grasses paired with flowering perennials and accented by native shrubs enclose a carpet of lush grass within the front yard. Redbud trees along the sidewalk frame views into the garden. A herringbone brick patterned driveway artfully meanders to the backyard where an ellipse at the base of a stair connects the residence with the garden. A kinetic sculpture is sited at the top of the hill along the main vista. A woodland walk of native Piedmont vegetation winds though the existing woodland. The project was awarded a 2011 Preservation Award from Historic Charlotte.
