Southern Summer Oasis

Peek into these backyards for outdoor inspiration

A walk through downtown Huntsville reveals some of Alabama's oldest gardens, while a drive through Jones Valley or The Ledges may uncover a hydrangea haven or Provencal-inspired watering hole. Hidden behind iron gates and stone retaining walls, you may hear a babbling fountain or spy a patinated statue, and sometimes you may catch a glimpse of turquoise waters nestled among an ivy-grown treillage and Japanese maples. The way Southerners carefully curate outdoor spaces is part of our history and culture. From heirloom seeds passed down for generations to digging up bulbs and gifting neighbors, our gardens breed love and life.
