Countryside Collection

Back to the tour main page.

Upon entering this garden, you will get a taste of what it’s like to leave the city life behind and escape to the country. Raised beds with veggies and herbs and a cozy firepit are just a few of the special features that you will enjoy here. This innovative gardener created a bioswale with native plants to manage drainage issues. A permeable driveway is so unique, you are not likely to see anything like it.
