Garden of Delights

By Bertog Landscape Company

Built in the early 1900s, this home’s landscape design features edibles and a unique, relaxing front-yard garden patio. Pear and apple trees, vegetables and herbs blend with seasonal groupings in perennial beds throughout. A mixed border garden along the property edge of the front sidewalk offers two-way views of flowering perennials, vegetables and herbs. The enclosed bluestone patio with cedar lattice fencing and brick pillars creates privacy and a seamless transition from an interior sunroom with sliding doors to the enclosed garden patio. Sweet autumn clematis and New Dawn climbing roses provide colorful displays that soften the lattice work. Along the home’s foundation, Quick Fire® hydrangea groupings create structure and color, from mid-summer through winter. Path lighting and two Green Mountain Boxwood flank the main entryway along the side of the house. In back, a bluestone pathway leads to a bluestone patio with Autumn Brillance® serviceberries and Green Gem Boxwood hedges.
