Through The Garden Gate: Pam Sorenson’s Garden

April 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hosted by the Dogwood Garden Club

An unfolding story is how Pam Sorenson     describes her collaboration with landscape   designer Cole Burrell. The property, nearly an acre and a quarter, is blessed with remarkable bones. Enormous magnolia and holly trees stand in the side lawn, and two huge tulip   poplars anchor the lower section.

A journey through the garden reveals one lovely chapter after another of their 10-year collaboration. Brick walls define a series of   terraces cascading downhill from the house, flanked by long perennial beds. Features include a patio and fountain just behind the house, a boxwood parterre garden and a rock garden with three interconnecting pools.

Tackling the jungle-like rear section of the property behind the existing swimming pool was a real challenge. Now the woodland garden is a colorful pastiche of flowers and foliage to delight the senses at every season.
