john linley

we would not be here if it weren't for john linley. he lived here for 30 years prior to us and laid the foundation for our garden. really, we are just keeping up what he left behind, as well as adding our own and there. mr. linley was a professor in landscape architecture at UGA. the university created a digital archive of images of his work on historic architecture that can be found here. above are two photographs of our house- 'before' when he purchased it in 1967, and 'after' he renovated it the next year...and here is a description that goes along with the 'before' of our house, from the digital library of georgia. later, we'll share some historic garden photos...
