Janet Best gardens in Spencerport, NY.
"Welcome to my woodland garden retreat! This is my favorite garden and the place we go to relax. When we moved to our home 19 years ago, there wasn't a woodland garden. I was very excited to create one and I started right away. After removing many wild honeysuckle bushes and roses it started to take shape. My husband, David, built the gazebo the following year. The garden continues to be a work in progress. We have cut down some trees and planted new ones (mostly Kousa Dogwoods and Japanese Maples). Every year I try to plant something new. This year it was the native hydrangea Haas Halo (hydrangea arborescens)."
