2. John and Catherine Close – 321 Greenwood Street, Homewood, AL
Designed and maintained by: David Brush
The Close Garden is tucked into a hillside behind the house, offering no clues to its existence from the front. Clean and simple lines are the hallmark of this private, compact, serene getaway designed in the manner of a stylized Italian villa. Espaliered pears, spire-like arborvitae and container accents frame the intimate swimming pool and sitting area.
Access to this garden is up a steep grassy slope. Please enter at your own risk.
