When I met this wonderful sculptor, already in her 80’s, I could not believe her positive and progressive attitude. She had run out of sun from her ever- expanding tree canopy and wanted to do something with her last bit of full sun. So we made her a sunny garden, which she tells me is her happy place. Take the journey with us!
Tear up the grass!
We made three paisley-shaped beds with stone edges to make them level. Easy to sit and garden on the low side. Nice wide paths allow for easy access with a wheel barrow all around.
We filled the raised beds with lovely humusy soil.
Once spring arrived, so did the plants.
Our artist now steps out the front door to a sunny, productive garden.

Boy, Oliver, in the garden.
The front garden was such a success, we decided to tackle the back!
