For ease of describing and keeping track of areas, I have divided the gardens into four separate areas. Our home is situated in the north-west corner of our property.
There are several beds and borders around the house and greenhouse, and I refer to this area as the south yard.
Farthest south and still enclosed by a tree line are several large newer beds, referred to as the south gardens.
The shed is east and a bit south of the house, on the other side of the drive/parking area.
The north side of the shed is referred to as the north lawn, all the way past the screen room at the end of the shed and to the pool deck by the garden. Starting at the Parking area, walking east, you would go through bed 13, past 14, and 25, with the garden and box beds to your left. If you keep going, you cross the drainage ditch and head off to the field/meadow to the river ridge.
South of the shed is referred to as the east lawn/yard. If you walk along that side of the shed, you pass beds 19 and 20 to your left and meet up with beds 15 and 18. Taking the path between 15 and the pool deck, you get to 16 and 17 and the garden.
Turning right the path takes you to the box beds and across the east lawn to compost bins and bed 25. Beyond this area is trees and meadow to the south and east.
