Day 2 of photos from Mike and Sheila Schneider’s garden in Stony Point, New York. In case you missed it yesterday, they say, “Our garden has been 13 years in its creation on 2 acres of land and it is our dream come true. Some gardens start with a specific plan, some gardens landscapers create. Our garden is a product of combined dreams. Every flower and tree was planted and watered with love. That love brought not only beauty but the peace it created became an invitation to butterflies, hummingbirds, groundhogs, birds, and yes, even deer. No matter where we walk in the gardens we are serene and incredibly grateful for Nature’s creation.”

    Wow, Mike and Sheila,you have certainly created a wonderland in your 13 years of gardening. I am particularly fascinated by your waterfall and how it seems like just a step outside your about something that has 4 seasons of interest! It looks like you have some wonderfully large fish and I'll bet they are very responsive to human activity and all have names.

    What a lovely spot! Rocks. Our little grandson loves rocks, it appears you folks do too. How many tons of rocks did it take to do this. Your choice of trees and plants are striking. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful. I thought that my property was steep, but yours appears much more so. Your hard work has paid off. Well done.

    All looks very professional, great job.

    All very beautiful. I particularly like the view of the fence as it ambles up your hill. What type of mulch do you use?

    Green, lush, serene and peaceful. We can feel our blood pressure drop just looking at these photos!

    How beautiful, you have your own little piece of heaven!

    Wow! That is fantastic! What vision you had 13 years ago to create this incredible landscape, and on such a slope! Everything is meticulously pruned! You must spend hours and hours per week!

    This is my parents home and I just want to say that as beautiful as the pictures are it is even more wonderful in person. Of course they waited until I moved to Florida to create this paradise so I only get to enjoy it a few times each year but I always look forward to being there. I am so glad they are finally sharing images of their creation for others to see!

    I love the way you kept continuity throughout the whole property. Well conceived. You have me wishing for a waterfall. I just dread shutting down a simple fountain in the winter so I've resisted the urge to make such a majestic water feature commitment. Ah... your property is a bad influence. ;-)

    Mike & Sheila you have certainly made the most of your multi-sloped property everything flows beautifully. There's just enough breathing room for all your plants/shrubs/trees to show off their natural shape. Yes, it is a serene and peaceful place; I can almost here the birds and sounds of the forest critters....

    I really love everything you've done. The 2nd top photo reminds me of a nature trail. All is very calming and peaceful! Great job!!
