Lot size is about 1.8 acres, of which approximately 3/4 acre is garden. The lot was formerly a farm field which I built on in 1993 and started landscaping/gardening. I have planted mostly native hardwood trees; oak, ash, hickory, maple, along with hardy decorative trees like purple beech, tricolor beech, river birch and rust/scab resistant crabapples. The gardens are almost wholly perennials now with very few annuals. I started with a primary interest in peonies of which there are 75 different varieties, and now have included 130+ daylily and 110+ hosta varieties all interspersed with various other hardy perennials of all types. Additionally there are several thousand daffodils of over 30 varities. I have progressed to where the garden has something blooming nonstop from spring through fall.
