To fully experience and appreciate this garden located on a historic (1700s) family farm, one must explore the expansive views and garden located behind the house. What you will see is a generous perennial border surrounding a patio, several hydrangea beds and a dahlia bed, an herb garden, vegetable garden, blueberry patch, and raspberry and asparagus beds. In addition to the long shrub border along the road in front of the house, there are specimen trees located throughout the property; Pinus parviflora ‘Glauca’, Fagus sylvatica ‘Asplenifolia’, and Cercidiphyllum japonicum, to name a few. Located adjacent to the property is Sylvan Nursery, a treasure trove of trees, shrubs, and perennials.
