Landscaping Updates

What will the landscaping add to your experience at the Donaldson-Bannister property?  Preschoolers enjoying a fun afternoon just rolling down the hill, children playing tag football in the pasture, a couple sitting on a bench quietly reading a book, a young woman strolling through a garden of vintage flowers—all of this will be possible at the Donaldson-Bannister Home.

Are we talking about Callaway Gardens, some large acreage in the mountains, a National Park, perhaps?

No, this is the vision for the lawn at the Donaldson-Bannister Home. The Dunwoody Preservation Trust and Stantec Landscape architectural firm have joined to create a green space in this historical home that will be enjoyed by all ages.

The landscape team of Stantec has designed a farm-like atmosphere near the barn where families can enjoy acres of land–no structured playground, no coaches, no ball fields.  Just land –acres of land–where children can use their imaginations and play.

Behind the house will be garden“rooms’ which provide relaxation and mediation by individuals, or a beautiful setting for garden clubs, and other groups.

The landscape plan has been completed, and we are currently discussing the plan to implement it.  Please check back for more details as we continue our efforts to make the Donaldson-Bannister Home one of your favorite places in Dunwoody.

We are looking forward to presenting this gift to the City of Dunwoody.
