Grand is the Garden
A visionary and energetic gardening couple planned and plotted their dream garden for their large backyard space. That was more than 30 years ago, and we have the pleasure of touring these mature garden beds, and seven spectacular water features. The realization of their vision is inspiring.
- Pond dye is food grade. Pond dyes inhibit the growth of filamentous algae, mat-forming algae and single-cell planktonic algae and can help hinder fish predation.

Born and raised on a farm, I’ve always appreciated the smell and feel of fresh earth. When we purchased our home 35 years ago, it had some land, but not a single flower. I began the process of plotting and planning garden beds and borders, and have not stopped. Looking out at this mature landscape, it gives me a sense of accomplishment here in my own botanical garden.
