This garden is one of the best in our area and you will see more stunning gardens coming up. This garden is designed by the homeowners and filled with colorful flowers. And the flowers were attracting all kinds of wildlife on the 4 acre property.
Daylilies in all colors are used throughout, but the coneflower were the champs attracting bees and butterflies.
The property has split rail fencing and a pretty Gambrel roofed barn. The garden is a Certified Wildlife Habitat.
Paths are constructed with natural materials and help in controlling drainage.
It is deceiving in the image, but there are maintenance paths of stepping-stones though the huge beds.
This bird house is occupied and the momma bird was squawking at me from the tree top as I was photographing.
Many grasses are used and will look lovely come fall.
The garden has a new Japanese themed section and the property includes a variety of Japanese Maples.
I met the homeowners of this beautiful property and they are very warm and welcoming people. They do all the maintenance on this large property too. Pretty remarkable with all the plants in their care.
This garden was visited and photographed by Garden Gate magazine in 2011.
Locally, it has been on TV and the local newspapers.
I hope you are getting ideas for your own gardens. I purposefully take wide-angle views so you can see how the spaces work together. You can see how the homeowners incorporate ornament, circulation and structures.
Plants in this garden include, daylily, phlox, coneflower, peony, hosta and grasses. Trees are, pine, hardwoods, maples, spruce and a variety of shrubs.
Below is the Japanese inspired walled garden. It has Asian sculpture and a fountain.
Next, thoughts on the drought conditions across the U.S., and photos of FLYING pollinators. I included camera settings for the critters on the move. After, my garden… and how the drought affected the plants. Then more from the gardens on the Buffalo Garden Walk.
