We built this area for the seats and table one our resident's kids gave us
Our shop garden
The "Trellis Garden" is populated with objects (including the trellis) from a home in our park that was torn down and the park owner gave us permission to get all these items and we put them together in this installation. The park owner LOVES it!
The east "Dog Park Garden." This is the second garden we put together starting about 2 years ago.
The west "Dog Park Garden." This is the first garden we put together starting about 2 years ago.
The "Lower Dog Park Garden"
I planted these aeoniums (look like large flowers) behind the dog park shed to prevent erosion.

We revived a bunch of old birdhouses that were in various states of disrepair and brought them back to life.
The "Apple Green Garden" Everything we built was from recycled wood and fasteners, and leftover stains and paints.
Most pots are donated by neighbors. We bought a few pots with our own money but they are usually damaged and we negotiate a cheaper price.
The "Pink Bomb"
"Mickey's Garden" We did this garden as a memorial garden for her deceased brother and her father.
The "Jewel Garden"
The "Zig-Zag Garden"
"A Row Corner Garden"
"Gail's Garden" is the trellis on the right. We built this one for our neighbor Gail who has created and maintained gardens across from her home for many years. As always, these gardens are built from discarded wood and trellises, reused screws, leftover stain, all donated by neighbors.
