It’s simple; it’s natural―that’s the way Margaret Davis describes the garden she and her husband, Gordon, created. Simple doesn’t always mean easy though. To get the look they wanted, the Davises took out the former owner’s railroad-tie flowerbeds and then added 11 tons of stone and more than 1,000 azaleas.
The result looks like the Augusta National Golf Club, with masses of colorful azaleas all mixed together along a perfect lawn. “I’m a fanatic about the grass,” Margaret admits. Gordon adds, “We just go for the color, and we don’t worry if we get too many in one spot.”
