Anita Shearan Garden

Anita Shearan Garden

Pottersville, NJ

We were encouraged to participate in the Open Days program to illustrate the potential of a small garden. Originally it was intended to only fence the back and plant deer proof plants at the front but this was unsuccessful. After much deliberation two years ago we decided to fence the front also and install a cattle grid. This is a half-acre garden in the center of a village on a very narrow lot. We have been planting here for five years. The garden was designed to have structure from evergreen hedges and a hornbeam allée providing year-round interest. There are mass plantings of bulbs that flower in the spring. As the year progresses, the emphasis is on the structure of the garden punctuated by large colorful planters on the terrace. Everything on the property is new with the exception of three old boxwoods that we relocated and a large tree in the front.
