On the banks of Central Alabama’s Lake Martin rests Jim Scott’s garden. It’s like none you’ve ever experienced.
If you notice this story doesn’t come with a landscape plan, that’s because Jim says it’s impossible to draw one, even with GPS. His 12-year creation is a labyrinth of intersecting trails, meandering streams, hideaways, and surprises. And while he isn’t a landscape architect, he could teach such a professional a thing or two. Each waterfall, wildflower, and moss-shawled boulder looks like it’s been nestled here since God made Earth.
