“Through the Garden Gate,” the 19th annual series of opportunities to visit local gardens, presents The Garden at Cargil Lane, hosted by the Piedmont Master Gardeners. Built in 1938, the original house had extensive gardens, with greenhouse, that over time were abandoned and became overrun by wild grape and wisteria. Ten years ago, the owners began to clear the overgrowth and design and plant the one-acre property. It borders a pond and stream, so wildlife is plentiful. A deer fence installed in 2019 has made a significant difference in planting options and protects a water garden; outside the fence, the garden features deer-resistant plants.
