The Nothwestern Garden
Northwestern Garden (11 beds) is bounded by a cedar hedge to the south and north, the farm laneway to the west and Centre Point to the east. It was started in 1979 and has been through many changes the last of which was in 2012; it has eleven beds with a multiplicity of shapes: oval, circle, half-moon, quarter moon and freeform. The carefully cut beds over the years have become grossly distorted. The outstanding feature is the peninsula shaped and freeform bed surrounding the largest pond. The orientation behind the layout was to integrate this garden with the outdoor living spaces in proximity to the house.
