Description: The Ware-Lyndon House is a pre-civil war structure just north of downtown Athens, which operates as a beautiful house museum.
To complement the museum, the County decided to implement a historically inspired parterre garden and surrounding landscape improvements.
Key Features: The formal parterre garden contains a central armillary sculpture surrounded by four beds of flowering perennials lined with a low-growing native holly hedge.
The perennial plant material was selected from a list of species used at a nearby historic garden from the same period.
The main entrance to the front door includes a small circular plaza and a linear walkway constructed with wood-molded brick in a historic herringbone pattern.
