A Seward Park Garden with Many Rooms

Hoeller Bicycle Garden

We divided this long, narrow ‘bowling alley’ shaped yard into multiple rooms by adding the porch. To the north are raised beds for growing edibles, a simple yet effective solution to the hard clay soil below. On the opposite side of the porch is the dining and entertainment area.

Around the corner, just off the kitchen, sits a more intimate place where a cup of tea or coffee can be enjoyed in the soft morning’s light.

"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in."

--Greek proverb
