Yard of the Week

Harriet and Rick Soudant have gardened at 139 Snedden Drive in Appleton since 2000 and have tried to keep the garden upkeep low maintenance.


The large front yard is beautifully treed and includes apple trees.  The porch is populated with house plants.  The front yard is highlighted with a plough in a rock bed and a pergola with blue morning glories climbing it

The beds are cleanly edged and mulched and include variegated bushes, cedars, potentilla and contrasting ninebark in purple and gold.  The bushes are interspersed with pink veronica, yellow coreopsis, black-eyed susans, hostas, daisies, sedum and red begonias.

Rick has used plentiful Lanark County rock throughout the garden to frame beds and build walkways and walls.

There’s a Fenced veggie garden at the side of the house and a firepit and seating area at the back.
