More about the garden at 1130 Springdale:

Another gem on the tour is known as a collector’s garden, 1130 Springdale Road. The imaginative perennial garden that winds up and around the backyard of Dr. Philip D. Edwards has been the great enterprise of his retirement.

“I think of my garden as a series of rooms, each with its own character,” Dr. Edwards said.

When he and his wife, Judi, moved to the house 25 years ago, the yard consisted of a thicket of shrubs and trees and small rock garden.

In 2001, he began to systematically weed, clear, and expand toward the back fence, where a woodland garden now reigns.

If you go: Druid Hills Tour of Homes; Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, April 22, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets for the tour can be purchased on the Druid Hills Tour of Homes website.
