Barn Garden – an homage to the past

Annette Shrader tours a unique home garden in rural Tennessee. The tobacco barn once stood at the front of the property. That footprint of the barn is now home to a garden filled with shrubs, perennials, trees and annuals. The selections were made that would allow wildlife to hide, birds to nest, and pollinators to find support. Relics of the past are also incorporated, which illustrate the bygone era.
