Hi Maine Folks!

Thought you might like to see some before pix of gardens at our new fixer house in Eastport.

Offer up any advice on what you would do with the gardens. What I should keep and what I should cull.

Name any of the plants you know, pretty please!!!


Here is a link that might be useful: Before pix!

Your white flowering "lots of it" is called snow in summer. Looks awesome creeping down rock walls and can easily be rooted at all leaf junctions. One of your other ground covers looks like it might be creeping jenny.
Good luck this season :)

This is Coltsfoot, a native plant, has small yellow flowers very very early and then these leaves the rest of the year.

Wow, looks like you could keep yourself wuite busy if you wnated to. I added a pond and outrdoor garden rooms .
I am trying to incorporate gardenw with 25 annimals, horses, goats, chickens, dogs, sheep. SO my gardens are themed to accomidate and make pleasantries for me and my farm. When you design your garden I would wonder what is important to you to sit and enjoy, to lay in a hammock and sip latte with low maintenance garden or to be dead heading pansies in AUgust because you are a high maintance gardener that like to stay really busy .

Do you want a show of succession or focus on a big bang during a certain time period such as August or Spring?

Details about what you are looking to enjoy to anticipate.
Kids, pets, just the spouce or friends and entertain or only for yourself.
