This lovely garden, located in a marine shoreline conservation district, is called Scarlet Oak and is named for the huge oak tree that dominates the first impression of the property.
Creating these gardens has been the family’s “labor of love” for 25 years. Each of the garden spaces is defined by location and purpose in a relaxed country garden theme. A big red mailbox marks the driveway down the hill past the hydrangea border on the left. The English Gates Garden is planted with vegetables, roses, perennials, flowers, and any other vegetation liked by the deer. The Native Garden spreads under the big Douglas fir tree. A new Stump Garden is taking shape where dangerous trees were removed.
