Cleveland County Arts Council Hosts Garden and Outdoor Life Tour

Art in its organic outdoor form is on display for the Cleveland County Arts Council’s 2022 Garden and Outdoor Living Tour.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The self-guided tour includes seven outdoor living spaces and “outdoor art.”

Locations on the tour include:

Pine Hall, Andrea Potts

224 Fairway Drive, Shelby

Andrea and Patrick Potts bought Pine Hall in June 2016.

Earl and Montrose Mechum built Pine Hall in 1973. Many of the house’s features were salvaged from historic homes throughout North Carolina, including the log cabin now called the Love Shack in honor of second stewards, Frank and Virginia Love.

Pine Hall Gardens is a traditional Southern garden with hundreds of species of plants including boxwood, hydrangeas, rhododendrons, gardenias, laurels, azaleas, roses, foxgloves, hollyhocks, irises, hostas and more. Pine Hall Gardens are dedicated to the memory of Patrick Potts who, with his wife, had a vision to restore this house and gardens.
