Evan’s Acre, a one acre garden, is the perfect place for family, friends and pets to relax, play, and garden. Raised beds make it easy to plant and pick a summer of edibles. Recycled art pieces dot the beds and borders of both sun and shady plants.

Garden Philosophy: Our garden is a quirky creation that is done on a budget. Grandkids, kids dogs, urban wildlife, friends and family are all able to enjoy our wonderful acre lot. Pass-along plants and garden art come with stories of people and places where they originated. I often think that I am nurturing my garden, but of course it’s my garden that is really nurturing me.
Favorite Garden Tip : Do a little in the yard every day and keep a garden journal.
