Soon the crape myrtles will arc & touch over the gravel lane.
Designing this century old property back-to-its-history the edges of the gravel lane, above, have been designed with extreme concern. Perhaps you think they are undone? Not considered? Messy? Amazing how subdivision landscape design taints perceptions. I can see Flannery O'Conner walking down this lane not a curbed concrete ribbon in one of today's subdivisions.
Yet, at the end of the crape myrtle lane, above, a parking court is tucked in with neatly clipped hedges & gravel edged with cobblestones. Formality. Bang. Huge garden design decisions not meant to be 'noticed', but, deeply intuited. Even by those not interested in gardens.
