The Garden

Filled with color and beauty, the gardens of The Ivy Place are the perfect escape to relax and entertain. 


The gardens with year-round interest are the result of decades of planning, labor, and patience by Genie Graham, a master gardener and garden designer who has turned the soil in the Charlotte area for more than 40 years. 


The gardens of The Ivy Place have received high praise from master gardeners of the Southeast for its historic and native plants and healthy and plentiful rose bushes. 


The Ivy Place gardens feature:

  • a millstone garden fountain
  • cedar arbors with climbing roses
  • meandering pathways
  • three-tiered succulent garden
  • hideaway fish pond
  • brick family walk
  • towering shade trees

Seasonally, you can witness the beauty of camellias, daffodils, azaleas, hydrangeas, viburnums, and sunflowers.
