Think boxwoods, aged brick pavers and espalier pear trees.
Like a lot of us, I’ve learned a lot about gardening and landscaping this past year thanks to gardening giants like Carmen Johnson and James Farmer sharing tips on Instagram.
One day, I found myself searching for boxwood hedges and garden gate designs, and like a lot of days, found myself lost in the beautiful images of Instagram. When I came across an account called, The Itinerant Gardener, I thought I had found a hidden gem.
I quickly reached out, set up a call and the next thing I knew I was driving down to Columbia, SC for a tour of a backyard made of dreams.
If you haven’t come across Mary T and India Dial yet, let me introduce you! I’ve loved getting to know this dynamic mother, daughter duo who have designed some of the most beautiful gardens I have seen.
Mary T and her daughter, India, primarily work in Charleston, Columbia, Cashiers and Charlotte, and this past year I toured four of their projects in Columbia and Charleston. I was so impressed I asked them to design my own yard (another blog for another time)!
So, grab a cup of coffee and get ready to save and store for inspiration. Whether you have big or small landscape plans ahead of you, there’s inspiration in these images for us all.
