The open gate bids you welcome. You know you’re going to go in. Like many gardens in historic Charleston, this one entices at first glance and then surprises with details. You enter and are not disappointed.
Though the entry courtyard is small―roughly 25 feet from gate to house and 50 feet wide―it feels bigger inside. That’s because landscape architects Clyde Timmons and Steve Dudash of DesignWorks divided the area into a series of discrete spaces defined by walls, paving, and planting beds. Each area invites you to linger and extend your visit.
