My garden is grown with an Ecuadorian style and fused with a Boulder twist. It is sure to please the eye, with raised flower beds, rock out-croppings and unique structures. A running stream and raised rock beds keep plants cozy and safe.

Spring spinach, kale, and sweet peas are the first to sprout. The summer brings carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, peppers, onions and watermelon. In the heart of the garden are Ruby Red and Golden Raspberries.

The flower gardens are tucked in, with rock walls and plenty of charm. Benches, bird houses and trellises line the pathways. Birds, deer, fox, dragonflies and butterflies come to enjoy the rock fountains, flower beds and living structures. An amazing grapevine shade structure and privacy walls add depth and color. Many trees (white maple, Asian maples, plum, peach, cherry and nectarine) add summer shade and a wonderful fall harvest.

With love I built this garden as a tribute to my family; for my wife on her 40th birthday, 40 bird houses; for us all, a special growing garden to nurture and enjoy; for me, a Latin Man Cave to relax.
