Over the last 14 years, Vida and Jeff have gradually transformed their sunny front yard and mixed sun/shade backyard. Last year's massive project was placing large boulders to edge their front yard.  Shade is provided in the back of the garden by a large tree. A fence, staggered privacy screen and some cedars provide privacy along the back of their garden. Vida repeats a variety of mostly hostas, daylilies, astilbes, daisies, irises, hens and chickens and sedum to create her flower beds. The beds have been attractively edged by Vida with flagstone. One bed has rhubarb and raspberries. They share their garden with armies of chipmunks; squirrels and raccoons .The squirrels especially enjoy the apples from their tree. After a day of gardening there are several areas to relax. There is a covered hot tub, dining area on a flagstone patio and gas fire pit area. Sprinkled throughout the garden are funky decorative touches and several wind chimes. Vida has been inspired by her great neighbours, Hanni and Dave,(62 Lyndhurst). Linger to chat with Vida and enjoy some refreshments.

Hanni and David have created a garden over the years that combines her love of gardening and his artistic creations. A lush sunny front yard features many perennials and several of his metal statues. A pergola covered with grapes leads to the backyard.  Hanni combines flowers and vegetable plants in her flower beds. Take note of the many raised vegetable beds. An underground sprinkler system and 4 rain barrels help provide water to the garden. No fence on the one side of their garden allows a view of several adjacent gardens. Their love of entertaining is evident in the all season sunroom, a patio with BBQ area, fire pit and the Tikki hut. The hut was built by David and had to be repaired this year after it was damaged in the windstorm. Come, admire and stay to relax.  They are gracious hosts and will be offering their guests lemonade and freshly made popcorn.

Over the last 18 years Susan and Steve have transformed their backyard into an all season retreat in the city. The front yard is fairly shady due to a large maple tree and has a small grassy area bordered by flower beds. Susan uses river rock to attractively edge many of her flower beds. There are many areas in the backyard for both relaxing and entertaining. There is a comfortable couch and 2 eating areas. The hot tub and 2 chimenea fire pits are enjoyed all year. Despite a black walnut tree next door, the shady backyard includes many hostas, brunnera , Boston and English ivy, boxwood, etc. Susan incorporates mirrors, concrete balls that she has created; a penny ball, bird feeders, stepping stones and mementoes from her mom within the garden. A favorite feature of the garden will be the She-shed. After enjoying the many plants, trees, shrubs and decorative features, stay to relax and enjoy some refreshments with the hosts and fellow gardeners.
