My yard consists of 4,250 Sq Footage. In the back, you’ll find a corner garden, two pool-side gardens, a bird garden, bee garden, and a side patio garden where roses, liatris, lilies, and bee balm grow. In the driveway, an 82 plant Vegetable “bucket” garden spills over with tomatoes, peppers, green beans, and peas. A peppermint patch, an 80-foot long raised bed, and a witch’s garden that doubles as a shade garden surrounds the driveway. The fence is lined with clematis and morning glories. In the front, guests are welcomed by a double rose garden that stretches out to a bed of lilies that spans the front yard. A patch of peonies and bleeding hearts are tucked into the corner where 80 feet of forsythia begins.
In 2017, I planted corn in the front yard to restore the soil. Corn dumps nitrogen into the soil and is strategically planted by farmers in crop rotation to revive depleted soil.
Welcome to my portfolio. The newest photos are first and depict the work I began in 2012.
2012 to Present
This second gallery mostly depicts the gardens within the first four years. My husband and I bought the house in 2012 and, right away, we went to work.
I’ve laid out cardboard to kill off patches of weeds and grass to make garden design and planting much easier for the following season.
