Lakeside Garden Beauty
At Jim Scott’s remarkable lakeside garden in Alabama, beauty and laughter lie around every bend.
Natural CreationOn 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.
