Ed Goracy: The Goracy's turned their backyard into a perennial garden, an example of what can be done on 1-acre plot. A winding path of crushed red slate bordered by cobblestones passes through many pink astilbes, yellow loosestrife, Stella d’Oro lilies, roses, red-and-white honeysuckle, hakone grass, red weigelas among other perennials. Tropicals, koi pond, fountain statue, benches and bistro set, gazebo, potting shed tucked into the setting. Stubenrauch 4-season gardens under high shade of mature oaks and white pines, with Glastonbury ledge, an understory of small trees, shrubs, and perennials, evergreen and exfoliating deciduous plantings, bulbs, vines, ferns, groundcovers, container plantings, attract wildlife. Murray: 2-acres of perennials and annuals carved out of woodland, punctuated by unusual and native trees. Three long-blooming borders and hydrangea bed, copper weeping maple sculpture, bank of carpetflower roses with daylily garden above, sculptures, shade gardens built into pool deck, formal triangle garden, 50-foot rose bed, Japanese garden, much more Creating Magic: Inspired by father's garden in Netherlands, I use plants from local garden sales, exchanging plants and seeds with friends, splitting perennials. Many perennial borders, 2 unusual sheds, a brook, concentric circle border, many old-time favorites, repurposed natural materials.
