“Through the Garden Gate,” the 19th annual series of opportunities to visit local gardens, presents Southfield garden, hosted by the Piedmont Master Gardeners and the Albemarle Garden Club. When the Kramers moved to Southfield in 1999, they fell in love with the house, the view and the privacy. Over time they have added extensive gardens, including an array of woodland plants set amongst meandering paths and mature trees. The walled parterre garden is home to old-fashioned roses, boxwoods, mosses, perennials and tropicals. Pots are everywhere, a testament to Cathy’s love of succulents and vibrant color. A recently created pollinator border supports Cathy’s beekeeping endeavors. For more details and directions, visit
