As you enter the driveway, imagine 27 years ago when the lot was covered in brush honeysuckle and more than 50 trees obscuring the house. A “Thank You” to the vision of Marshall Allen, Sarah Scott, Doug Montague, and Mike Feimster who helped us to create the garden you will visit today.
A windstorm in 2011 heavily damaged trees shading the front garden. However, despite this, we are blessed to have many varied areas of sun and shade throughout the garden and strive to have something in bloom from February until frost.
On the left of the driveway is a long series of gardens, beginning with hostas, then daylilies, and finally perennials in the “grand-daughters garden.” To the right as you walk along the driveway, is another collection of hostas, wildflowers, and shade perennials. Next to the house is a sun garden that has mostly late summer perennials.
Enter the back garden on a stone walkway which separates two berms. The berm on the right features a Koi pond with cool dark shade perennials as well as open sun and full sun perennials and daylilies. The berm against the fence features Nellie Stevens Hollies and large hostas. The back garden is an every-changing display of wildflowers, ferns, hostas, daylilies, toad lilies, hydrangeas and shade perennials. There is also an area to sit and enjoy another water feature, watch Blue Jays flock to a feeder filled with crushed peanuts, and drink in the colors from the large bed of daylilies at the back of the house.
We have created an environment for serenity and relaxation and welcome you to our garden.
