Show #51/4212. Two Gardeners Answer The Question -What Do I Want My Garden To Be?

A Good Looking Grotto

The grotto is certainly one of the most interesting garden rooms and must have been a place that required a lot of energy. Skip is proud of the grotto and it did take a lot of work. Skip needed a way to get to the upper level, thus came up with this idea. He prowled the internet and found a guy in Pennsylvania with a wide selection of rocks. Skip told him he needed many different types of stones. He didn't want regular skids, instead 16 skids with steps, big stones, flat ones, everything he could think of. And that's what he did. A big flatbed truck arrived with 16 skids of stones. It works, the grotto transports one into something that feels very old world Europe. And, it's grown in nicely, he has Leucothoe, willow leaf cotoneaster, silver edge fern, yellow flag iris and wants to add caladiums.
