The Perennial Gardens

 

The Labyrinth Garden

This garden was created in 2018 through a Neighborhood Matching Fund Grant The beds are Hugel mound construction. This is a place for quiet contemplation. Walk the labyrinth and remember loved ones and experiences that have shaped you. This garden is located just off the sidewalk on 82nd Street. Notice the grape arbor and boxwood hedge.

 
The Medicinal Garden

This garden was created in Spring 2016 and is still a work in progress. It is planted with a variety of plants that are healthful. This garden is located adjacent to the small red shed just west of the wooden entrance sign along the 82nd Street pathway.

 
The Culinary Herb Garden

In the late 1990s former long-time gardener Laura Matter spearheaded the creation of this garden. This garden’s wonderful centerpiece was created by Stuart Prado out of repurposed materials. It is planted with perennial and annual culinary herbs. This garden is located adjacent to the big red barn.

 
The Northwest Planting

This garden is a remnant from the King County Master Gardener’s Garden that once existed here. It is a fine example of a native plant and tree planting. This planting is located along the 82nd Street pathway. It looks like a thicket with trees and shrubs thickly planted. 

 
The Dahlia Cut Flower Garden

This garden was created in Spring 2018 and consists of rare and unusual dahlias. Gardeners are welcome to take a few flowers to make a small bouquet. This garden is located across from the wooden entrance sign along the 82nd Street pathway just behind the espalier apple trees.
