A Mountain Garden (Roaring Gap, North Carolina)
A Mountain Garden is filled with a profusion of color from annual and perennial flowers in beds interlaced with stone paths. The one-tenth acre garden is planted on a sloping site between the main house and guest house on the property. The garden is centered by a small fountain and fish pond surrounded by rocks. Tea is served at a rustic twig table with a galvanized steel top and twig stools. The porches are decorated with hanging containers stuffed with blooms, a rose trellis stretches over one of two garden gates, and the entire garden provides cutting material for flower arrangements.
Persons associated with the garden include Kevin Mathis (Head Gardener, 2000 to present).
