Welcome to the Gardens of Craig Luna and Luna’s Lillies, Inc.
While meandering around and through this quiet neighborhood, you approach a white picket fence that fronts a white ranch-style home that is full of color. Keeping in mind the word “color,” my little home is filled, inside and out, with vibrant hues.
Wherever your eyes guide you, my gardens feature flower beds exploding with height-of-the season colors, accented by garden art and decorative elements. All of this brings intrigue and compliments the natural splendor of this groomed landscaping.
Your visual sensation is compounded by the 18,000 gallon ecologically-balanced water feature with the ever-present sounds of running, trickling, and bubbling water. An assortment of vibrantly-colored marine life dart in and around a large variety of aquatic plants. All of the components of the custom-designed filtration system give this water garden superb clarity and a well balanced eco-system. (See attachment for a list of marine life and aquatic plants.)
This garden provides the visitor with endless ideas for adding a water feature to any size space. Be it a gurgling vase or multi-levels of urns spilling into a small container pool, there is a water garden for anyone.
Along either side of the yard, the landscape is covered by a high canopy of native hardwoods and rows of Ligustrum, both providing a paradise of privacy. Scattered throughout these areas are an abundant variety of Georgia-favorite native plantings. All of these plantings not only bring color to the lush foliage canvas, they attract hummingbirds and butterflies. As well as being visual enhancements, these plantings provide a natural habitat to wildlife. Also gracing the landscape are two large Nellie R. Stephens hollies that I have pruned and sculpted into massive topiaries and under planted with native lady ferns. (See attachment for a list of plantings.)
The pathways leading from the ponds offer two stone benches that invite you to sit and take in the natural splendor. You are then drawn to the wide expanse of decking adorned with decorative pots and trickling water features. Once on the deck, you are immediately presented with how all of the elements in Craig’s Gardens --- an oasis of nature by nature, for nature lovers - - - come together.
With the setting of the sun, Craig’s Gardens take on yet another dimension with the addition of precision illumination of professional outdoor garden lighting. The true magic of the gardens then becomes most apparent when the natural light ends, and my talents begin.
By visiting my gardens, you have seen a showcase of the many facets of who I am - - - a master landscaper and water garden designer. These Southern gardens can be a constant joy of any home, condo, or apartment dweller.
You have been welcomed, and I thank you for your visit to my home of color.
