Just because summer has passed and the autumn season is upon us doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the beauty of a garden. It just means you have to be a bit more creative about how to do that now, and how to bring that beauty indoors as well.
And that's where The Garden Porch at Dovecote can help. As a cottage specialty retail center located in the heart of Cashiers' woodland oasis, the Garden Porch can help garden lovers in three key ways all year long. First, the co-owners of the property offer landscape advice and architectural landscaping services to their clients all year from their Atlanta and North Carolina offices.
Second, they hold workshops throughout the seasons, providing an opportunity to learn and mingle with like-minded individuals across the country who share the fondness for one of life's most pleasurable pursuits. In fact, they are doing just that this week at the Atlanta History Center, taking participants to the exclusive gardens they designed in the exclusive Buckhead community Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 19-21.
Third, Hugh Graham and his partner and wife Mary Palmer Dargan have graciously opened up their home porch at their Cashiers cottage as a specialty retail store for planter products made with moss and bark. For a list of moss-covered planter products for sell from The Garden Porch visit the Dargan's website or Facebook page or call them at 828-743-0307.
