Mill Creek Garden Tour, Saturday, June 27, 11am to 5pm. Tickets $17 online

What do you do with a hilly, sloping back yard? Why make a “Terraced Retreat” of course. 

This homeowner has long had a passion for designing visually interesting and aesthetically appealing spaces and her garden is no exception. Operating under the premise that “form follows function” she took a once bare bones, kid-friendly yard and turned it into the peaceful, terraced retreat it is today. 
Imagine, if you will, blue stone pavers, cedar, hemlock and Japanese maple trees with low-maintenance plantings adding texture, shape and color to create the natural garden desired by the homeowners. Plant variegated ground cover, azaleas, bergenia, rhododendrons, various grasses and emerald greens. 
To bring the inside outdoors …. well, you'll have to see for yourself on June 27. You'll be inspired and get plenty of ideas for turning your own garden into a sophisticated, outdoor retreat.

There are six private gardens on the Mill Creek Garden Tour. The Gardens are open 11 am-5 pm on Saturday, June 27. Tickets, $17,
