All of this handy work has turned the backyard into a beautiful outdoor garden room.
When Randy and Andi bought their home in 2000, the front and back yards were wall to wall grass, with two dozen round evergreen shrubs and Italian Cypress trees. Over the years, the front yard has evolved into a large garden and is continually changing.
In 2019, they remodeled their pond to make more room for their large goldfish and koi. The whiskey barrel falls, which circulate and filter the water have become the focal point of their front yard. In order to utilize the dirt from the new pond, the gardeners used 22 railroad ties to form a raised bed vegetable garden.
The yard also includes a succulent garden and several paths to move you through the new area. The backyard is another eclectic space with pea gravel planters, potted plants, and whiskey barrels for all of the trees. The orange tree, which is the matriarch of the backyard, is the only original tree left in the yard. All of this handy work has turned the backyard into a beautiful outdoor garden room that they share with the hummingbirds, butterflies and lizards, who are always watching the garden evolve.
This is a “Two-for-One” - head to 17100 Buttonwood to see another great garden.
