Stowe, Vermont

These homeowners were looking to expand the size of their vegetable garden to support their enthusiasm for using fresh garden ingredients in their cooking and baking.  The layout of their property however provided the best open space in the front yard, requiring a design that would fit into their existing landscape and be enjoyable to look at for themselves and passing neighbors.  A simple low stone seatwall creates the front of the vegetable garden towards the house.  A grid of raised garden beds radiate from the wall.  Stone walkways lead from the house to the garden and a small stone patio sits beneath a timber framed pergola on axis with the simple garden gate.
