The next garden we visited on the tour had the most wonderful view of the ocean. This garden had beds throughout the lawn. The beds had stepping stone paths in them to make it easier to work in the middle of the large beds.
This 12 acre garden was purchased by the owners in 1987. It used to be a working farm, but had become completely overgrown. They put in a garden pond where there was a natural spring and set to work making gardens. Many of the plants were given to them by friends and neighbors. What a wonderful garden it is indeed, you can definitely tell they have put in years of effort.
The sweeping views of the ocean were a wonderful feature in this garden. They didn’t distract from this with too much ornamentation.
Do you have walkways or stepping stones in your garden beds to make it easier to work?Filed under Miscellaneous | Comments (4)
