Savannah is known for its historic garden squares. If you’ve been here, or seen pictures of the historic district, you know what I’m talking about. So one day Manny and I were looking at the disaster that had become our backyard and decided we should bring a little of that downtown charm to Gordonston, aka our ‘hood.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. It’s some variation of the following:
[A] Building a small version of a historic landmark in one’s backyard sounds like a great idea! Sort of how I’d like to have a scaled-down model of the Taj Mahal in my backyard. There’s no way it will overwhelm the space and look tacky.
[B] That sounds like a terrible idea. It’s going to overwhelm the space and look tacky. Sort of like the scaled-down model of the Taj Mahal my horrible neighbors are building in their backyard.
But truth be told, we have vision, y’all. One day, we hope to have a beautiful little cottage-style garden. Something that combines the following aesthetics into one sublime and only somewhat mosquito-ridden sanctuary for us to call our own.
