Elmore Garden (Asheville, North Carolina)
A small garden setting with boxwood and paths connect four different areas. A pond with waterfall defines a large terrace area planted with a variety of perennials and shrubs. An herb garden is nested by a greenhouse. A vegetable garden, behind the locust arbor and fence adds to the interest as does a double perennial border behind the boxwood hedge. Many different species of plant material can be found in these gardens, bound together by hedge and walk.
Persons and/or organizations associated with the property include: Caude and Genevieve Smith (former owners, 1949-1986); Charles N. Parker (architect, 1949); and Kirk Alexander (landscape architect, 1990 and 1998).
