Louise Wrinkle Garden

The documentation of Louise Wrinkle’s southern woodland garden in Mountain Brook, Alabama presents a distinct opportunity to explore the nexus of preservation and conservation. This is also the Garden Conservancy's first opportunity to interview the creator of the garden we are documenting.

Wrinkle was a founding member and board member of the Garden Conservancy and a distinguished member of the Garden Club of America for over 40 years. Her approach to garden design and plant care and penchant for communicating with wide-ranging audiences has contributed to an increase in appreciation of native landscaping practices across the country. Wrinkle’s self-published book Listen to the Land: Creating a Southern Woodland Garden chronicles the evolution of her garden practices and philosophy at her family home and garden.
