July featured garden

It’s All Carol’s Fault (or my husband should be canonized).

Photography by Maddie Terry

Editor’s Note: Seven of the top gardens in the Lowcountry were showcased as part of the 2019 All Saints Garden Tour. LOCAL Life is featuring each garden through images captured by photographer Maddie Terry. First up is the garden of Tru Dee and Michael Bamberg.

These specimen gardens demonstrate the wonderful variety of flora and fauna that live and thrive on Hilton Head Island. With more than 150 different plants at last count, it is difficult to find room for new and exciting introductions, but Carol Guedalia, who orders all the plants for The Greenery Garden Center, continues to challenge these Hilton Head Plantation homeowners. For those who missed it, here’s a peek.
