Gorgeous Southern Gardens


Today, I am sharing some incredible gardens that were designed by the Atlanta, Georgia landscape design firm Howard Design Studio. I recently came across their beautiful portfolio when I was researching for my post about gardens featuring espalier and thought you would enjoy seeing some of their breathtaking garden designs.

Many of the gardens Howard Design Studio designs are quite formal and look like ones you would see surrounding historic palaces in Europe.

Here is a sample of their landscape designs from their portfolio:

Interestingly, there are very few flowering annuals in these gardens. The gardens are heavy on manicured boxwoods, shrubs, and greenery, and hydrangeas are the primary flowering plant that is used.

Aren’t these gardens gorgeous? Just seeing these photos of the gardens makes me feel happy and peaceful.
