Shade Garden Sitting Wall


This shade garden with an inviting sitting wall is located at the JC Raulston Arboretum.  One of the benefits of providing shade in a landscape is to get relief from our hot southern summers.  Take advantage of the shade by providing a place to perch while enjoying the sounds of the birds in the large tree above.  The seating wall also acts as a divider helping to create "rooms" in the landscape.
