The Secret Garden A highlight at the rear of the 16 by 32 foot pool is an Italian sculpture entitled “The Secret Garden.” This late 19th century piece from Tuscany, carved from a single block of Italian limestone, serves as the main focal point for the rear garden and is visible from all the windows in the back of the home. As Howard relays, “I think it is appropriate in this garden, as it really is a secret garden with only one access point without going through the house.” Whether enjoying outdoor dining, sunning by the pool or spending time in the other garden “rooms” at Greystone, these Atlanta homeowners are thrilled with Howard’s richly detailed and classic design elements— a perfect setting for both private family time and entertaining friends. n LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE: John Howard, Howard Design Studio ARCHITECTURE: William Litchfield BUILDER: Carden/Stapleton Homes LANDSCAPE CONTRACTOR: Viridis Garden Design LIGHTING CONTRACTOR: Orion Outdoor Lighting POOL CONTRACTOR: Superior Pools 30 PEACHYTHEMAGAZINE.COM
