Madison in Morgan County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Formal Southern Landscapes
Landscape architecture often echoed the architectural spirit of the residents. ‘Boxwood’ c. 1850, having two different building fronts, matched garden and porch characteristics: rigidly straight-lined for the Doric order portico and curvilinear for the Italianate porch. Such eclectic design of both home and garden reflected the influence of an English aesthetic, as England was the 19th century economic, political and cultural leader, and its tastes were imitated all over the Victorian world. Thus, the 19th century parterre craze experienced in English gardens found its way into the antebellum landscape of this and other Madison homes.
