We bought our vacant property in 1985. Twenty two acres of woodland, sloping hills, open fields and farm land. In the early years, my wife and I developed a master plan and have pretty much kept to the original concept. The house, my shop and gardens consisting of a fire pit settled within an Adirondack motif. We practice square foot gardening in a vegetable garden with raised beds, an herb garden, a garden shed, patios, walkways and stone walls. Our display gardens are a mix of bulbs, annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs. The gardens are designed within full sun, part sun and shade conditions, which surrounds our home; and fortunately for us, every window has a different garden view. It's the perfect setting for entertaining with family and friends.
Sorry, the garden is not open to the general public. However, some of Fox Creek clients are invited to discuss their landscape plans and have a first hand view of suggested ideas.

Dog days of summer...isn't every day a dog's day? (Who would think that with grown children, we would still buy a kiddie pool?)
Inspired by our travels to Pennsylvania and Delaware, Dave finds relaxation in building
stone walls. As you can see he has developed
this into an art form.
