Glen Gardner is a native South Carolinian with deep family roots in gardening and many generations of farming the Lowcountry’s land. A love for architecture led Glen to study Architecture at Clemson University, where he later added in the love of gardening with a major change to Landscape Architecture. Glen was awarded a Mickell Grant for Urban Studies in Italy in 1999, and was also a recipient of the Garden Club of South Carolina’s Hessie Morrah scholarship for five years. Glen’s Thesis project, based on the development of Palmetto Bluff, in Bluffton, South Carolina, won the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s 2001 national Grace Design Competition which included a travel grant to further his studies in the field.
Glen opened the doors to his successful landscape architecture studio in 2006 and works with private clients to create gardens throughout the Southeast. Glen serves or has served in board and committee capacities with Preservation Society of Charleston, Historic Charleston Foundation, and Spoleto Festival USA and is a past president of the Charitable Society of Charleston.
Patrick Bradley, from Columbia, South Carolina, graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Historic Preservation and Community Planning along with a Minor in Art History. His studies in Italy, Germany, Charleston and Savannah have influenced his style and his garden collection. Patrick’s additional background in architectural studies paired with his prior tenure working with architectural salvage has allowed him to hone his skills in curating objects for clients and spotting trends in the design field. The thrill of the hunt and a passion for antique and vintage design is what keeps Patrick constantly searching for new and exciting items for Charleston GardenWorks’ inventory.
