Today’s photos are from Michael Goltzman, who says, “These are photos of the gardens of Sharon and Rob Bennette in Millis, Massachusetts. I started helping them design and plant the garden in the early 1990s and it has continued to evolve until today. Rob and Sharon are entrepreneurs who have spent years redoing their home and gardens. Rob runs his business out of the small shed in the backyard.
The garden is a mix of conifers, Japanese maples, grasses, and perennials. More than a decade later, they rarely water the garden in the summer because everything is well established. Even though they are located in the Boston suburbs, their garden is located near the Charles River head waters and therefore has a somewhat warmer microclimate. The Bennettes enjoy their “estate” constantly, and Rob’s commute to the office is always a pleasant one. I hope you enjoy their garden.”
