"The visual impact of this creative garden is inspiring. Fern with heuchera provides interesting color and texture while an eye-catching border runs alongside the house and fence. Stunning sculpture and rockwork ties in well with the rest of the garden. An interesting tiered vegetable area highlights a wide range of vegetables. There are wonderful shade pockets integrated through the garden. Beautiful, relaxing, tranquil – you will want to live here!"
