WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The homeowners of 305 South 5th Avenue fell in love with their house and its welcoming front porch when they purchased it in 2004.
As time passed, their passion turned to their garden.
Simplicity was their design esthetic for the front.
The fountain was a gift from Inza Walston’s mother and the four antique urns are from Walston’s grandmother.
Through the double gates to the backyard, the feeling of simplicity continues.
The back is organized into two distinct spaces separated by an arch and a beautiful gate made of African Sapele.
“The gate was inspired by a gate that I saw at the Chanticleer Garden in Philadelphia, and we had the metal grape leaves part and a friend of ours who’s very, very good with design and wood designed the arch and the gate itself,” garden owner, Blair Both said.
This will be the garden’s first time on the Garden Tour.
