Back by popular request, Atlanta-based Instagrammers @covermeinivy and @stuffymuffy have again joined forces to present another delightful garden tour and guest post for The Glam Pad! You may recall the exquisite tour of a 1920s Buckhead garden they shared this spring, and today we return with the dynamic duo to beautiful Buckhead…
A designer known for her thoughtful approach to interiors practices the same discernment in the landscaping of a quintessential Buckhead home.
The spring season in Atlanta breathes life into its lush terrain, revealing grand garden schemes on most every residential street in Buckhead. The landscape of a 1937 Colonial Revival-style home tucked in Haynes Manor echoes the effort exercised to maintain such flourishing grounds. For 26 years, homeowner and designer Beth Ervin has collaborated closely with Louise Poer of Louise Poer Landscape Design to create a garden that envelopes the residence in charm. “It was important to me to have my yard look green and lush. Flowers come and go, but green looks great in Atlanta all year long,” Beth notes.
The mingling of climbing varieties and pruned hedges creates a harmonious balance of natural and manicured. During the month of May, rose trees boasting bold hues of pink and orange introduce color while hydrangea bushes blooming later in the summer offer texture. The touch of an interior designer is evident in the vignettes and intricate fretwork throughout, lending structure and aesthetic interest. Establishing a warm and inviting feeling are the meandering pathways and opportunities to sit and soak it all in. “We love to entertain on our porch and blue stone terrace throughout the year,” says the consummate hostess. After many seasons of cultivating the land, the result is a garden retreat in keeping with the home’s classical architecture.
