3375 Moore Street
This homeowner turned a very plain, suburban lawn into an enchanting sustainable garden. Using drought tolerant plantings to highlight existing, well-established shrubs, the property has a look of natural wildness, yet all elements are balanced. The designer is well-known local landscape architect Jay Griffith. This garden, re-landscaped in 2002, requires from 6 to 15 minutes of watering per week. The Liquid Amber maple trees, along with visits from birds and butterflies, create an oasis of peace and tranquility which is further enhanced by the complete absence of leaf blowers. Both front and back yards will be open during the tour.
