Tea Time At A Cottage Garden
"HER LATE HUSBAND HAD 'GARDENED WITH LOVE,' sighed my usually upbeat senior client, but now she was ready to transform his dabbler yard into a cozy Victorian garden. As we surveyed the space behind her retirement residence, she confided that she really wanted a large, lush lawn, colorful roses, picturesque creekbed, and a shady spot to sip tea with friends. 'Oh,' she added, 'and can you do it on a budget?' Of course, I sighed."
"The sweeping curve of the lawn leads your eye through the yard, from the colorful rose garden in the foreground, to the bistro table that beckons you from afar. And the growing redwoods lend a natural sense of privacy to the peaceful environment."
