The garden of Mountain Brook residents Ginger and Charles Clark along with five other residential gardens in Birmingham will be shown in the biennial Glorious Gardens event held by Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The June 2 event will also showcase the public garden of Railroad Park.
The Clark Garden is a seamless blend of the styles preferred by homeowners. He prefers a more manicured look, which is expressed in the stately terrace and elegant plantings out front. She prefers a more liberal approach, utilizing unusual plant materials with contrasting colors in the back gardens.
