These garden tours feature highlights from other people’s gardens I have visited on local tours in Ontario, Canada.
This garden looked like something straight out of Country Living (or Country Home) magazine. By sticking to a deliberate theme (black, white, grey, country, folk, rustic), this gardener has created a distinct work of art with her outdoor living spaces.
There’s also a recurring theme of rust—an essential feature in any junk garden as you’ll see here: Rusty Garden Art Gallery.
I have posted a lot of photos so you can see many of the details that make this garden interesting.
Truthfully, it’s a lot more about the furnishings and accessories than plants.
While some of the pieces would probably be a bit pricey, there’s lots of repurposed “junk” items as well that really make it all work.
Here’s the house from the street:
Lavender and hostas (plus lots of fresh mulch a.k.a. the best friend of anyone hosting a garden tour)—
Flagstones and steps to the front porch—
There’s a courtyard on each side of the house. Here’s the entrance to the first one. I couldn’t take many overview shots because there were lots of people standing and talking….This one has a potting table.
Second side courtyard:
Indoor “garden” room at the back of the house:
More from the first side courtyard:
A fountain by the back shaded sitting area:
The flowers keep to the basic colour theme of the garden:
That was a lot more home than garden really! I hope you enjoyed the tour.
