My garden surrounds an 1830s Vermont farmhouse and barn, with stonewalls, fields, and views of neighboring farms and distant mountains. It reflects my horticultural path from market gardener to garden designer.
It features perennial and shrub borders, vegetable garden and orchard, a rock garden and dry garden, fields and meadows. The focal point is a mixed border of shrubs and hardy perennials, while remnants of barn foundations offer a setting for alpines, ferns, ornamental grasses and shrubs. Foliage and texture predominate. This is an ongoing experiment with plants and ideas gathered from other gardens and gardeners.
