Garden Tour: Autumn Alfresco
Backed by towering oaks, the 2-acre yard incorporates several outdoor rooms. In front, French doors open to a flagstone courtyard with a carpet of creeping thyme. A 4-foot stone wall offers privacy and blocks the wind. The courtyard offers a view over a ‘Green Mountain’ sugar maple in full glory, blazing yellow-orange amid easy-care grasses, prairie flowers and shrub roses.
