Eastover
North Carolina’s Kate Morrison creates classic accents for your lawn and garden.

The founder: A Louisville, Ky., native, Morrison graduated from Davidson College (NC) and later received an MBA from Simmons School of Management in Boston. During a restoration of a family home, she had an idea for a business dedicated to hand-crafted garden accents made in North Carolina.

The company: Eastover Collection was founded in 2013 in Concord, NC. Morrison lives within minutes of her family’s millwork shop, where she collaborates with woodworkers to create her garden line.

The main goods: Planter boxes, obelisks and rose pyramids, topiary frames, trellises, window boxes, and arbors ($350 to $4,500).

What’s popular: Planter boxes in various sizes ($350 to $1,250).

Other favorites: Garden obelisks in various sizes ($250 to $895).

Materials and colors: Planter boxes are made primarily in cellular PVC, a moisture-resistant and long-lasting building material. Other pieces are built in Cellular PVC, or a durable wood, such as cedar, fir or cypress. Colors include white, black and Charleston Green, or a custom color by request.

Big break: Crafting custom planter boxes (pictured below) and garden obelisks for the Duke Mansion in Charlotte, NC, as part of the property’s garden restoration and 100th year anniversary celebration.

As seen in: Garden & Gun, Charlotte Home & Garden, and Scout Guide Charlotte

What’s next: Creating a garden bench and offering new planter box designs.
