A compact garden is the ultimate rewarding puzzle. Every inch counts, and strategic division can actually make a small space feel bigger. Such is the case for this classic garden in the heart of Greenville. The property, with its venerable Charlestonian brick house, meant that the garden needed to reflect that same highly tailored elegance. But it also needed to be set up for entertaining, protected from the street yet highly sociable on the inside. The original bones of the garden were designed for one owner in 2014. Then when a young family moved in, we had the immense privilege of revisiting the garden and evaluating it according to the needs and desires of its new owners. Within the footprint of the original, we added the copper and iron dining pavilion, renovated the parking area, and nested a quatrefoil pool around the original fountain.
