United States of America -- South Carolina -- Greenville County -- Greenville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a narrative garden description, site plans, and other information.
General:
Located on the crest of a small mountain, this six-acre garden (part of a 75-acre property) was designed to incorporate and reflect the natural flow of the land. Under development since 1987, it includes stone retaining walls and tiered terraces inspired by a French garden. Major additions to the original design include the 2002 reconfiguration of the view side of the house (the southeastern perimeter) and the addition of a dry creek bed in 2006. Planting materials are largely native grasses, trees, and flowers, while several pieces of sculpture provide focal points and accents. Plantings are staggered so that something is in bloom from April to November. Several outdoor seating areas provide opportunities for reflection and immersion in the garden and the surrounding area.
Persons associated with the property include: Robert E. Marvin (landscape architect, 1987-1990); Thomas Angell (landscape architect, 1997-2007); Robert Miller (horticulturist, 1997-2007); Kirkland McDonald (horticulturist, 2005-2007); and Jimmy Giradeau (gardener, 1992 to date).

General:
Originally an older home and clay tennis court, the half-acre Frierson Garden was established in 2006 when the owners added the adjoining lot to their property and installed a formal Italian-style garden with the assistance of landscape architect Thomas Angell (ASLA). The Italian Renaissance-style of this garden is evident from the street, with clipped holly hedges lining the crushed gravel and brick walkways to a centrally placed planted urn in the area known as the espy, or viewing area looking out to the garden. Next the water feature is comprised of a circular fountain with a runnel edged in flower beds, ending in a diamond shaped reservoir. The symmetry of this garden is evident in two rows of raised planting boxes on either side of the water feature that are used for seasonal flowers and vegetables. Rockwork steps lead to a lawn of zoysia grass with more steps down to a veranda for outdoor entertaining. Italian cypress trees evoke the Mediterranean influence of this garden's design.
Next to the house on the original property there is a formal herb garden entered through white picket fences with a grass walkway between two beds planted with boxwood, pansies, violets and pittosporum as well as herbs. Twelve varieties of roses are planted along another picket fence along the edge of a zoysia grass lawn known as the 'green beach' and used the grandchildren to play football. Sculptures are placed around the entire garden, including one of a child playing tennis by Dennis Smith. Container-planted ferns, roses, a grapefruit tree and a pine tree and espaliered apple and pear trees are other features of this garden.
The Frierson Garden has been open for the Piedmont Gardeners Annual Garden Tour and has been featured in a garden tour benefitting the Athens Children's Choir.
Persons associated with the garden include Thomas Angell, ASLA (landscape architect, 2005-2007); Kim Ransom (gardener, 2007-present); Dennis Smith (sculptor).
