a private garden tucked away in the woods

Atlanta is a beautiful city featuring a green canopy of established trees in many areas. Some residents have chosen to augment their woods. The owner of this property designed this garden, moving many established maple trees from his previous property some 15 years ago.

This magnificent lantern is quite tall, setting the scene in the entry garden.

A small bridge crosses a stream between the driveway and the main entrance to the home. Perfectly clipped bushes and a collection of maples highlighted the soothing atmosphere of this front yard.

Near the front door, a rustic wooden bench provides a resting spot to enjoy all the details of this area by the front door.
