It is all about the Gardens

We consider our Gardens an arboretum,  an animal habitat,  a bird santuary.


     When we purchased our land in 1992, it was an empty lawn with a small fruit orchard, invasive plants, and a few non-native foundation plantings.   


     Over these many years, we have planted hundreds of trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and bulbs to improve the environment and benefit the fauna that surround us.  


     Our goal is to provide our Visitors with a unique Garden Tour of our three acres describing and showing its plant and fauna diversity.


     Our guided tours focus on what interests you, whether growing your own organic vegetables, or how you can encourage native birds and bees to reside in your garden.


      Each Garden area is a study of textures, forms, broad vistas, intimate settings, color, and diversity.   Benches, swings, arbors, tables & chairs are nestled into and around the garden for picnics before or after your Garden Tour.


     Like the Pleasure Gardens of old, we will stroll with you,  at your leisure, over the many grassy, mulched, and smooth woodland paths over the gentle terrain.  


     We hope you relax, listen to the birds, enjoy the plants, and take home ideas you can use in your garden.

       Pleasure Gardens were the amusement parks of Georgian England, during the

       18th and 19th centuries, allowing visitors  a chance to escape the hustle and bustle

       of city life while offering them a variety of picturesque gardens, strolling paths,

       musical  concerts, al fresco dining, waterfalls, fountain displays, dancing,  and  

       even firework shows.  



      There existed an attraction for almost everyone of every taste, not least important

      among them being the chance to see and be seen by members of London high society.
