Pedrick's Garden anchors the west end of Falls Park.
The Dale Chihuly sculpture, Rose Cystal Tower, serves as the centerpiece for the Harriet Wyche Memorial Garden, honoring one of the park's founders.
A variety of plantings adorn the walkways, created to follow a sunflower theme.
One of the garden’s more unique features is its use of the sunflower, Pedrick’s favorite plant, as a design motif. The sunflower theme was used throughout to establish the hardscape lines, planter edges, fountain shapes, and color scheme.
McLeod Landscape Architects was the landscape architect of record for Pedrick’s Garden, working off of an original plan by Julie Moir Messervy Design Studio, in conjunction with the Carolina Foothills Garden Club, Craig Gaulden Davis Architects, and the City of Greenville. The garden club originally approached the Vermont-based Julie Moir Messervy Design Studio with the idea for a garden to honor Lowery, a horticulturalist, who once served as garden club president. After a formal agreement with the City was reached, a local team was put together, including a landscape architect, architect, civil engineer, and wetland specialist. The team, which collaborated for nearly a year on design development and construction documents, evolved the garden club’s early development drawings into a more elaborate, connective, civic-oriented park, without sacrificing the garden-like qualities of the original design.
In 2015, the South Carolina Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects presented the President’s Award of Excellence, its highest honor, to the design team for Pedrick’s Garden.
