Smithgall Gardens 

Project work includes Master Planning, Landscape Architecture and fund-raising illustrations for this 250 acre woodland garden and arboretum in Gainesville, Georgia. The design capitalizes on the variety of hills, ravines, watercourses and forest settings to create a tranquil setting with a variety of garden environments including a Children’s Garden, Wetland Marsh, Enchanted Woodland, Waterfall Walk, Native Plants Garden, and Asian Woodland. The project will disturb very little of the environment through its sensitive layout which works with existing topography and around existing rock outcrops and trees. Ravines were designed as a series of cascading water courses with pedestrian access, overlooks and woodland garden planting. Native boulders were used to create drop structures.
