Article Title True to form, this Charleston garden occupies a small space that displays extraordinary beauty without overwhelming a visitor. Upon entering, I was greeted by New Dawn Roses that were blossoming along the entire length of the fence. On the backside of these roses there are two layers of clipped hedges—the taller is Podocarpus and the lower is boxwood. The evergreen hedges continue throughout the garden giving it structure and bones. Many residents in Charleston use Saint Augustine for grass panels but the couple decided on zoysia because they love the texture and feel. 52 PEACHYTHEMAGAZINE.COM
