Porches, Patios & Paths Garden Tour – Brooks Home

The gardens of the Brooks home has a terraced backyard concept.

According to my helpful brochure, “The Brooks garden is sectioned off to give the appearance of being different rooms, including a cutting garden, a Gazebo room, a lower garden, a mid-level garden, patio, and large deck.”

Garden Tour

A common thread throughout the entire tour is how serene and peaceful all the gardens are. I would love to spend an afternoon reading in this garden. 

Patio Garden Tour

I also love the uniqueness of each garden space and all the unexpected surprises.

Garden Gate – Patios, Porches & Paths Garden Tour

Every time I see a garden gate, I’m always curious as to what’s on the other side. To me, a garden gate is an invitation to step inside and explore!Garden Gate

This wrought iron bench is a family heirloom, passed down from the great grandmother of the homeowner. I’m crazy about family heirlooms and this one is swoon-worthy. 

Antique Bench

This is one of my favorite pieces in the garden.

Bright and Vivid Colors on The Patio

These colors are so cheerful. And I really want to add a swing to my front porch. Isn’t it inviting?

Reading a good book while sipping a glass of ice-cold lemonade is how I’d love to spend the afternoon in this swing. 

I have so many new ideas for my patio, gardens, and more. 

Thanks for continuing on this tour with me. Next week will conclude the Porches, Patios & Paths Garden Tour! It was truly a fun adventure and I especially loved that I took this tour with my three daughters. Making memories with my girls  is one of the greatest Mother’s Day presents ever.

Beautiful. I have never really thought of statuary in gardens for myself but these are stunning. xo

I thought so, too, Katherine!

I love it!! Beautiful! I’m completely inspired–my husband and I have been working on our outdoor area too.

I’ve got a lot of new ideas from the garden tour, too.

I love garden gates also and agree that they are beckoning us to enter! The Garden tour is chock full of great yard and garden (and porch) ideas!

Next Thursday concludes the tour. I was hoping everyone would not get bored from six weeks of it, but I think it’s really been a hit. I’m so glad!

Kathe June 12, 2014 - 10:41 am

So inspirational! Just lovely!

Bobbie June 12, 2014 - 11:35 am

Another beautiful porch! I really love the bold colors, especially the blue. I think this one is my favorite porch!
