2018 Garden #4

“The Meadows Garden”

This newer west Placitas property is a perfect example of what can be accomplished in a relatively short time by a dedicated gardener in the family.


This garden has a bit of everything positive in residential landscaping:   outdoor patio rooms, xeric landscaped garden vignettes, raised vegetable garden beds, and meandering pathways throughout.


This property boasts a fabulous view of the West Mesas in the front, and a dramatic view of the Sandia Mountains in the back.  The owner, who grew up on a Midwestern farm, is an avid vegetable gardener, and has planted several deciduous and fruit trees along the property edge providing a rural ambience to the property.   It is rare not to see the owner outside tending his garden.
