Gorgeous, Thick Plant Life With Colorful Flowers Framing White Garden Gate and Entrance Arch
Thick, vivid plant life decorates the grounds hugging the white garden fence. The gate is covered with an open archway and thick, winding ivy. A large bed of yellow flowers draws the eye while red and pink blooms add a pop of extra color.
Brick Pavilion With Wisteria Framed Peaks, Garden and Weathered Gate
The weathered-finish gate serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose to the space. It creates a dramatic focal point as well as a practical entrance for staging of events. Wisteria frames the peaks of the pavilion, giving it a storybook quality that fits well with the beautiful flower garden and the structure's cottage feel. In an effort to maintain a seamless span, the wooden beams used in the timber frame we hollowed out and reinforced with steel.

The bee is the Savannah College of Art and Design's mascot, "a unique icon of industry" says SCAD president Paula Wallace. The bee is also the star of a new organic garden and apiary legacy project and teaching tool at the college where students can learn about a host of relevant topics including garden design; sustainability; use of plants in beauty and fragrance products; the use of beeswax in jewelry-making and painting; and how to dye fabrics using plants. In just about every way SCAD Back40 is the perfect, holistic teaching tool and laboratory for a school perpetually expanding its approach to incorporating real world practices into its curriculum.

Here, flowering shrubs like roses and other annuals and perennials ensure the garden is in bloom from March until late fall.
Purple hyssop and yellow flowering mustard create a complimentary color palette in this vibrant country garden. The design intent was to create a garden evocative of the regional landscape through the use of perennials with year round color and textural interest.
