Craftsman Home being used as an Antiques and Collectibles shop and residence. When I bought this home I wanted to create a English garden appearance for the Antique shop. I wanted lots of flowers and a sortof wild unkempt look with not a lot of care needed other than watering. I haven't got the pics in order but you can look thru and see before pics and then when we widened the walkway and put in the fence. Next we added pots and the wishing well and bench. There are photos of each step of the way to the final, wild beautiful results. Sorry they aren't in order, I will try to figure that one out next!!

"Hi, and welcome. I am not a gardner, and had very little experience with planting, but I always loved flowers and I was totally inspired by my sister's beautiful grounds at her home in Santa Cruz. When we bought the old corner house to move our antiques shop to I knew I needed a special yard to attract visitors. I had to keep costs down and produce a low maintainance yard that stood out. Check it out, I ended up with my own personal mini forest. "
