Small Gardens


We began working with the Nicholsons before this site was cleared. The owner is a painter and decorator who wanted a French country garden. The form of the garden is created with allees of American Hornbeam, Japanese Flowering Apricot, white Natchez Crape Myrtles and Crabapple 'Adirondack', and holly parterres which hold in check a riot of old roses, perennials, annuals, and flowering shrubs.

The Nicholson garden was featured in the July 9, 2001 issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion.
