Jim Gibbs, the founder of Atlanta-based Gibbs Landscaping Company, opened Gibbs Gardens, his 300-acre estate gardens, as a public garden on Thursday, March 1, 2012.
The estate has long been a favorite place of gardeners lucky enough to receive an invitation for a personal tour from Jim Gibbs, the owner, designer and developer. Known for outstanding landscape design, Jim Gibbs – along with his firm, Gibbs Landscaping Company -- has received more than 250 awards for landscaping design excellence, including two he received at White House ceremonies.
Gibbs Gardens is distinguished by 220 acres of gardens set in a mature forest in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. The rolling hills, abundance of springs and streams and mature shade trees create a truly unique backdrop for these unforgettable gardens.
Visitors to Gibbs Gardens will experience what Jim Gibbs describes as “the harmony of nature” as they stroll through his 16 garden venues. The seamless integration of nature and artistic design provides a breathtaking canvas for his four feature gardens:
