(SAVANNAH) – Landscape designer John McEllen will speak about “Bringing International Flair to your Garden” Oct. 22 as part of Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty’s The Masterpiece Series. The proceeds will go to Savannah Tree Foundation.
From Italy and Spain to South America, McEllen’s travels and collections have influenced his design. He brings water features into play and approaches the outside as a green room.
McEllen designed and now maintains the landscape of the Ships of the Sea Museum (the William Scarbrough House) and has landscaped many other notable Savannah properties. McEllen has worked as a landscape designer in Savannah for 25 years. He received a B.A. in history from the University of Georgia and did graduate work in historic landscape under Rudy Favaretti at the University of Connecticut.
McEllen will speak about “Bringing International Flair to your Garden” Oct. 22 as part of Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty’s The Masterpiece Series. The lecture-luncheon is open to the public. To make a reservation, $25 payment must be received by the Monday prior to the luncheon. Checks should be made out to CDS Lecture Series and sent to Lori Combs, Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty, 17 W. Charlton St. Savannah, GA 31401.
His own garden, with a “borrowed landscape” looking over the marsh with a view of Rose Dhu Island, is rarely on view, but he will showcase it with photos for the lecture.
