Peggy is a professional horticulturist and garden designer. The plan to create exquisite gardens will reflect her extensive experience, knowledge and talent. The actual gardens are currently under design and construction. The following is a conceptual description of the plan which will be gradually implemented over the first year.
Rear Gardens- The garden designs flanking the patio will include both a more formal perennial garden and the kitchen garden. The perennial garden plan will include a cascading fountain and a seductive array of blooms including irises, peonies, roses, clematis, coreopsis, baptisia, echinacea and spring bulbs. The kitchen vegetable and herb garden will be as beautiful as it will be delicious. All our produce will be grown using sustainable earth friendly practices and you will be welcome to visit your food up close. This future garden where productivity-meets-style is proof that food plants deserve a center stage of their own.
Entering through the garden gate you will leave all your worries behind. You will be soothed by the delightful sounds of the nearby fountain and by the serene color pallet of green and white. Enjoy this enchanted delightful garden from the garden bench or from under the fans of the covered porch.
The ½ acre vegetable garden will be responsible for providing both the owners and guests with a bountiful assortment of fruits and vegetables. Melons, asparagus, squash, potatoes, beets, beans, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and asian pears will call this place home. All of our food will be grown using sustainable earth-friendly practices. This garden will not generally be open to our guests, though if requested we are happy to give you a tour and even provide some hands-on garden training.
