It’s behind a garden gate that a gardener’s true nature is uncovered. “Perennial Heaven” features an adventurous gardener who never met a plant she didn’t like. You’ll see proof when you admire the colorful planted window boxes and all the intriguing perennials encircling this beautiful garden — look out for hummingbirds. A peek at the one-acre woodsy “Lakeside Gem” reveals a craftswoman and true gardener as the many paths reveal treasures at every turn. Take your time; don’t miss a thing.
Contemplating vacations and retirement must have been this gardener’s inspiration for the calm and relaxing view from “Par for the Course” on the 13th tee box with its Torii-gated bell, water feature and perennials. A gardener with a decorator’s flair is discovered in a “Terraced Retreat” with an outdoor room created out of a sloping hillside yard. It’s sophisticated and private nestled under the trees.
“Certifiably Sustainable” shows this gardener’s respect for the environment — her yard is kind to our earth and beautiful with its waterfall, pond and plantings. And in “The Garden Love Built” this gardener honors his parents by transforming a blackberry-covered acre into an inspiring garden designed as a tribute to their WWII POW romance. Step with us behind the garden gate!
