My yard is about 1/2 acre at the end of a court. It has an irregular shape, but is basically pie shaped with the V-shape starting at the street. Two of the borders are century old farmer's stone fence/tree lines. The lot slopes from back to front.

"Lark: nWhen I think of Dousman, I think of Ten Chimneys. What a treasure! As a fellow gardener, we all love to share our work with others who the same passion. If you are so inclined, contact me next summer. nJeff"

"Lark: I have put a collar of Cobra edging around the nGooseneck. Shepherd hooks about 12 feet apart are a base for 7 foot plastic netting secured with plasic cable ties. The netting is not visiible from a ten feet away and has worked well for the newly aggressive deer. I added the lily pond garden in October, so I look forward to its first spring. Thank you for your kind words. Jeff"

"Beautiful gardens! I see you have some aggressive plants (Gooseneck Loosestrife and Bee Balm) planted together to duke it out. I just heard on a plant show to do that with agressive plants and yours look perfectly happy. Looks like you might have deer problems...I see you use netting. Your landscape is so lush and has a very nice variety of plants. Great job."
