Manicuring My Summer House Garden

Late summer gardening chores continue in the sunken garden behind my Summer House.

Some of you may recall, I began this formal garden more than 10 years ago. The focal point is the great old ginkgo tree at the back of the space that is original to the property. Over time, I've planted American and English boxwood, smaller ginkgo trees, smoke bushes, Siberian weeping pea shrubs, peonies, hostas, lilies, and so much more. This week, my gardeners and outdoor grounds crew trimmed, pruned, shaped, and weeded the entire area and it looks beautiful.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
