Mississippi Mills Yard of the Week is sponsored by the Almonte and District Horticultural Society.
This week’s Yard of the Week is nestled along the banks of the Mississippi River at 563 Mountainview Road. The gardens belong to Tom Moylan and Audrey Hammond. This wonderful property is a mix of natural limestone outcroppings, mixed shrubs, perennials beds and a large lawn running down to the river. When you first enter the property there is a rock garden in a natural limestone ledge, then the driveway opens to a mix of shrubs as well as beautifully clipped evergreens, lending a formal touch to the garden. The perennial beds can be viewed from the many decks of the multilevel home, as well as the sweeping vista down to the water’s edge.
