The Garden Masterpiece Grown From Rescued Plants


– [Narrator] There’s a world
renowned topiary garden in the tiny town of
Bishopville, South Carolina, and that garden was created by this man; a man named Pearl. (lively, bouncy music) – [Pearl] I’m Pearl Fryar,
and this is my garden. – [Narrator] Pearl
started the garden in 1981 with the goal of winning Yard of the Month from the local garden club. – [Narrator] There was
a stereotype at the time that African Americans
didn’t keep up their yards. – [Narrator] Pearl now
has over 300 plants, most of which were
throwaways that came from the recycling bin at a local nursery. – [Narrator] So many people
drove by Pearl’s house to see his garden that he
opened it up to the public. – Hey, that looks like a sheep! – A big sheep. – What else do you want
to look at on the map? (chiming)

  1. African American's are the gardener's of the world. We could learn a lot from them :))) The Garden of Eden came from Ethiopia.

  2. I feel sorry for the people who are expected to succeed. They will never feel the majestic power of meekness. The quiet strength that allows one to feel so oddly connected to the earth, it becomes family and it is the only time the Golden Rule is reciprocated.

  3. Awesome man, thank you for sharing this beautiful vid, I'm inspired by this man's quest for beauty, love, peace & goodwill. Great job!πŸ‘πŸ½β€οΈ

  4. Is the LOVE that makes the trees and shrubs grow … that is why this garden does not need neither irrigation nor fertilizers nor pesticides …LOVE takes care of everything

  5. a star for Pearl because he proves that not all African Americans are alike, much like all other race.
    That race is not proof of what you can and cannot do.
    (and three stars for great big story for always providing quality content that makes the world a lot more brighter)

  6. There is a whole documentary about him called "A man named Pearl" it is awesome. Thank you Pearl for being so wonderful and adding so much to the world.

  7. This is such a high quality non-biased video worth subscribing into, just like Vox in its Prime

    I hope you guys don't end up like the current Vox.

  8. I love this channel it dose the lean towards a political view or party and has great stories keep up the good work

  9. Great project & great person! It was a pleasure flying my drone through his gardens for this inspiring story.

  10. With everything happening in the world atm it's lovely to see such positivity, your chanel is truly unique 😊

  11. If i could talk to him i would say to him that he should sell tickets for 2 or 3 dollars per person if they want to entire his garden.

  12. Mr. Fryer is a Master Gardener Excellence! He was also on the Victory Garden on PBS! Wouldn't it be great if someone made a special on Mr. Fryer and his gardens? Doesn't he also teach local childern how to garden as well? Thanks for sharing this story with the computer generation.πŸ€πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸŒ³πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΅πŸŒΏπŸŒΎπŸ€πŸŒ±πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΅πŸŒΏπŸŒΎπŸŒΉπŸŒΉπŸ€πŸŒ²πŸŒ±πŸŒ·πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΅πŸŒΏπŸŒΎπŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸ‚πŸπŸ€πŸŒ±πŸŒ²πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΅πŸŒΌπŸŒΏπŸŒ΅πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸ€πŸπŸŒ±β˜˜

  13. wow i respect that guy for taking care his garden so well hehe someday i will come to his place jst to see his beautiful garden πŸ˜¬πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»βœ¨

  14. Would it be a good idea when he passes to use his ashes as fertilizer for his plants. Imagine this man living in all of his plants now.

  15. I saw a piece on Pearlie years ago. The beauty he produced and his dedication stuck with me, and inspired me to eventually get my own bit of land and begin transforming the Ortho/Scott's-advertisement yard. The style is far less formal, but also organic and chemical-free, an effort to create an edible forest of mostly native flora and fauna.
