“Garden Rooms” Features Troy Rhone Garden Planner — Garden & Gun, Jan 2017
The article showcases ten beautiful outside garden rooms—each created by a renowned garden planner in the South. The featured gardens highlight unique landscapes and the garden planner philosophy behind them.
“The Woodland Garden” in Birmingham Alabama
Troy Rhone’s “Woodland Garden” is his featured work in this article. This stunning garden is located in Birmingham, Alabama. The garden is in the residence of Segal “Ed” Drummond, Jr. and his wife Carolyn.
Troy’s garden plan was inspired by thousands of vibrant daffodils. They illuminated the woods like night-lights and brightened up the shady spots. To bring order to the daffodils in the garden, Troy incorporated sculpted boxwoods—the epitome of formal garden symmetry.
The final result is a parterre garden reminiscent of the French Renaissance. Through the use of geometry and wide-open sunny space, the garden feels both wild, woodsy, and domesticated. Each compartment of the garden frames a unique object.
