A tour: our yard transformation

When we moved last November 2012, the yard was beautifully situated on the Braden River but very bare as far as plants. There was also a lot of grass, which makes a wonderful home for those pesky little biting no-see-ums (ouch!). Steven did not want to spend time mowing it either. He was already busy enough with his boats and handmade paddles. So, we called in Ann Hall, my friend from Nia class, who sadly passed away in 2019. She was a Florida friendly garden designer. We asked for her assistance with a plan for our yard and to help us to get all the work done! She did a wonderful job and we are so enjoying our new space, settling in, and feeling very much at home. I invite you to take a look at what we have done working together with Ann, Grant Blackwell -landscaper, Len Besterman -pavers and Billy Jenkins -carpentry.

At the end of 2012 we bought a home on the Braden River, Bradenton, Florida. We asked Florida friendly garden designer Ann Hall to help us transform our yard into a Tropical paradise we would really enjoy. Working with landscaper Grant Blackwell, carpenter Billy Jenkins and stone paver expert Len Besterman, Ann came through with just what we wanted!

At the end of the day, to sit in my garden is to finally awaken.
