Home of Dr. Edward Clark
Landscape Architect: Todd Goulding of Goulding Design Group
Story & Photography by Carolyn Hutcheson
Hidden behind his Macon home, Dr. Edward Clark has a wonderful surprise—a splendid English garden re-created through the inspiration of Dr. Clark and the expertise of his landscape architect, Todd Goulding. Originally constructed in 1926, the limestone home is surrounded by winding brick pathways. The garden consists of several hundred American, dwarf English and Wintergreen boxwoods, along with Knock Out roses, Oakleaf hydrangeas, camellias, iris, verbena, prostrate Japanese plum yew, and many other perennials and annuals throughout. The four quadrants of the garden contain urns and pedestals imported from England. The wrought iron gate is handcrafted.
Three years ago, Dr. Clark and his landscape architect extended the original stone wall that enclosed only a part of the property at the rear of the home. They went to great lengths to match the quality and design of the original limestone wall to make it appear as if it had been there from the start. The resulting beauty is the culmination of years of hard work, dedication, love, and devotion put toward the restoration and gardening.
