A mixture of roses and perennials, maple and birch trees brighten our front garden. Enter through the side gate to find a large backyard which backs up to a busy street. Our goal has been to create a peaceful space despite “surburbia” being close by. Our love of Maple trees sets the base, along with over 30 roses, annuals, perennials and a crepe myrtle tree. One side of our yard houses our “tropical paradise”, featuring a 4,000 gallon pond complete with waterfall, 7 koi, 3 turtles, and throughout the spring and summer, colorful dragonflies swoop down over the pond. The other side houses a bright yellow garden potting shed and several raised vegetable gardens planted with veggies, strawberries, rhubarb and more. A Martin bird house graces the center of the garden.
During our 35+ years here, our garden has evolved many, but we enjoy the current edition the most. We hope you will stop by and enjoy.
