Experience the journey
Every unique garden is a learning experience for both the owners and visitors alike. Problems solved, personal interests shared, the joy of turning a vision into reality. Owners and visitors from past garden tours reflect on what they observed and learned:
“Gardening is both an adventure and a sentimental journey. I love using ‘pass-along’ plants from my friends to add to my garden—and to my memories.” A Garden Owner
“I’ve created a garden that is static and doesn’t change much. But the design uses color, texture, and shape to produce movement and beauty in every season. Even though simple, the garden creates a feeling of both serenity and mystery as it draws visitors along widening and narrowing pathways from one area to another.” A Garden Owner
“My garden is a solace garden. It is my sanctuary—a place to be alone and a place to share with friends and family. Surrounded by plants, with my hands in the earth, I can celebrate life.” A Garden Owner
“Garden tours are simply one of the best ways to learn and witness best practices in gardening!” A Garden Visitor
Visit this garden
The Ever-Evolving Garden has been tended by the same gardener for nearly 30 years. The garden exhibits a sense of history mixed with openness to change. History derives from the venerable sugar maple tree shading native ferns and hostas. Evolution is evidenced in the new creations of the pollinator garden and the lavender bed. Throughout the property there are many “Perennial Plants of the Year” and benches that invite a moment of rest and reflection
