The Ahearn Garden

Hope to see you at our Open Garden this Saturday!  More info here.

July is off to a great start!  In addition to beautiful weather, we had an Independence Day treat of seeing one of our gardens on Sunset’s Fresh Dirt blog.  “Perfect Small Patio” by Jim McCausland features Debbie and Gary Ahearn’s little courtyard.  The patio is an inviting, outdoor extension of their kitchen and dining area.  Packing a lot of garden into a small space was our first challenge, and the second was providing a cozy, intimate and private space not far from a well-travelled residential street.  The redwood fence balances privacy with a flow of light and air, and the custom metal furniture gives the focus and warmth that make the courtyard a well-used outdoor room.

If the Ahearn’s courtyard looks familiar, you may remember it from earlier posts in our journal, like this one about outdoor seating areas.
