A message from the owners:
“When the House was purchased in March 2005 the grounds had been untouched for over 2 years.
Brambles and ivy were everywhere and what few plants were left were suffering from neglect and overgrown with weeds.
The grove of Black Locust trees had ivy 30′ up them, and nothing had been done to safegard the roots of the magnificent Pnderosa Pine that donminates the main lawn.
Apart from the larger trees, therefore, virtually everything you see today has been planted since March 2005.
Thank you to the many individuals, families, nurserys and plant societies who have donated plants and advice to us over the years. Enjoy!”
