Gardening is a Family Affair

Gardening is a Family Affair

This artistic, multi-generational family loves to spend time together and knows how to throw on the best parties.  The front retaining wall and and manicured lawn were designed to be the perfect party seating area and stage during the annual neighborhood 4k Miler Run the evening before the famous, annual Cooper-Young Festival. Their garden features an outdoor rabbit hutch, raised beds, and a relaxing fire pit area.
