The property is a one-of-a-kind creation, fronted by a grove of more than thirty mature poplars and spanning 1.5 acres on a gentle slope. It has been landscaped with a planting of over forty poplar saplings, helping explain the testaments from some that Poplar Grove is one of the most lovely landscaped properties in Cherokee County. A stream meandering along the boundary could be dammed to create a small pond at the lowest level of the site. Mountain laurels, dogwoods, cultured azaleas, crepe myrtle, several varieties of day lilies, roses, firewitch, and camellias are some of the landscaping additions for flowering plantings. Hollies, giant ferns, wild azaleas, and a magnificent fir tree occur naturally on the property.
