This is a native garden whose owner really likes to garden. She also likes to grow her own food. It has raised beds made of urbanite with porous hardscapes everywhere. This garden is carbon neutral with woodland natives and raised veggie beds in the front, and a native wildflower meadow and more raised beds in the former driveway. It has native edibles and lots of pollinators. It’s been a joy to watch this family grow up since we first built it.
