Our original property was purchased in July of 2003. We began working on the gardens in the spring of 2004. The business was registered in 2006 and opened to the general public in May of 2006. Since that time we have worked on expanding the gardens every year and have carried out a small building program coinciding with the development of the actual garden beds/rooms.
There were no gardens on the property when we purchased it. I began work transforming the front lawn into a series of garden beds and eliminated most of the grass. The photo at top left shows one of the new beds. The photo at top right is three years later with the small bed in the centre of the lawn, surrounded by other beds, mainly featuring daylilies.
