This year’s featured gardeners include: * Joanne and Richard Masica of Frisco who worked together to create an elaborate mixed garden surrounding their home. * Gwen and Ed Salmon of Frisco who feature a shade garden. Being English, they have tried to keep it like an English country garden with very little structure and also a smattering of wild flowers throughout. * Mike and Betsy Cuthbertson of Frisco who have numerous raised rock gardens with hundreds of plants, trees and shrubs. The garden also features a Koi pond with waterplants and lush waterfall.
* Bill and Joan Houlton of Keystone who feature an example of a natural mountain garden. * Linda and Mike Clem of Keystone whose country garden, set along the Snake River, offers many beautiful views and many interesting sculpture pieces. * Jane and Klaus Hendrix of Peak 7 near Breckenridge have built a “Mountain View Experimental Garden” that is home to more than 700 species of native and non-native flowering plants, most of which arose from seed sown in the outdoor nursery. * Jerry and Patricia Williams of Breckenridge whose gardens were designed to enhance the intimacy of the Williams’ home overlooking a meadow and commanding mountain views to the West.
* Katie and Rick McCool of Breckenridge whose garden features a magnificent rock wall with unique ground covers and perennials in the front bank of the yard with pansy beds lining the walk. * Karen and Steve West of Breckenridge who live at The Wedding House and feature many native species incorporated into the garden of this historical house which was built in 1893.
