Railroad Park Will Complement the Tour of Six Private Gardens
BIRMINGHAM, AL – Glorious Gardens returns to Birmingham June 2 – 3, 2012, showcasing six residential gardens and one public garden across the Magic City. The biennial tour allows ticket-holders intimate views of six private gardens from across the horticultural spectrum: from sprawling, ranch-style estates to quaint, self-maintained gardens. On Saturday, June 2, the tours will take place from 10 – 5 p.m., while Sunday will be open to the public from noon – 5 p.m.
Glorious Gardens not only educates visitors about plants, arts, gardening and various aspects of landscape design, it also benefits The Gardens’ mission to promote public knowledge and appreciation of plants, gardens and the environment. Tickets to the event will be available to the public in April for $25, with availability at www.bbgardens.org/
Barbara Saurer and Brad White – The Saurer/White garden sits on a deceptively large lot in the Hollywood area of Homewood. With mature Japanese maples and other uncommon specimens, the front garden greets guests with a fish pond. Rough, native stone repeats in a shaded patio. Take the side path past the outdoor shower, to the back of the property, which contains an herb bed, large composting area, chicken yard and a variety of other garden spaces rich with plantings.
John and Catherine Close – The Close garden is tucked into a hillside behind the house, offering no clues to its existence from the front. Clean and simple lines are the hallmark of this private, compact and serene getaway designed in the manner of a stylized Italian villa. Espaliered pears spire-like arborvitae and container accents frame the intimate swimming pool and sitting area.
Jane R. and Neil Ross – Built in 1947, the Ross cottage and its accompanying garden have continually evolved, but outdoor living space has always been immediately accessible to indoor rooms. Doors often stay comfortably open, inviting guests to move freely from the main rooms to the surprisingly detailed courtyard garden nestled in the pedestrian-friendly community of Edgewood.
Ginger and Charles Clark – The Clark garden is a seamless blend of the styles preferred by the homeowners. He prefers a more manicured look which is expressed in the stately terrace and elegant plantings in front. She prefers a more liberal approach, utilizing unusual plant materials with contrasting colors in the back gardens, where herbs and unusual vegetables cavort with espaliered fruits and shrub borders.
Mark and Caroline Clark – Magnolias, hollies, hydrangeas, fruit trees and other traditional Southern garden plants are the bones of the Clark garden. The front garden features Knock-Out® roses, gardenias and a wildflower garden overlooking a gorgeous view of the valley. In the back, behind a massive hedge of Leyland cypress, an extensive daylily collection borders the rear lawn Raised beds hold tomatoes, herbs, cut flowers and bearded iris.
Ernest and Vivian Cory – Located on Vestavia Drive with a view of the City of Birmingham, the Cory home was built with gardening and outdoor living as a priority. The loggia at the rear of the house spills onto a bluestone terrace and black-bottomed pool where the family often gathers to spend time together. With a small, formal herb garden, an abundant flower border reminiscent of those found in the English countryside, and raised vegetable planters, visitors will find plenty to inspire.
Railroad Park – Located downtown, Railroad Park is Birmingham’s newest park and it’s made quite an impression. With more than 600 trees onsite, including more than 50 Princeton elms alone, its trails and walkways among meadows of annuals, biennials and perennials provide breathtaking views of the Magic City throughout every season.
