Tuxedo Frontyard Veggie Garden
It’s a bold move to turn your whole front-yard into an in-ground veggie and herb garden, especially in Tuxedo. We helped do the initial design and installation (sod removal, paths, soaker hose timer system, raised beds on side of house, compost bin, rain barrel, potting bench). We have helped our client year after year including many mentorship sessions for the gardening and also processing the harvest. The area closest to the road is the most troublesome spot due to the salty snow placed their each winter, so it is now planted with some salt-tolerant native perennials. Deer are also an ongoing issue — there is a “scarecrow” motion detecting sprinkler around to scare them off.
