This kitchen garden was an addition to this family’s landscape project this summer.  Fresh landscape, beautiful patio, and a kitchen garden to complete it! 

Client: Sheila & Brian (and their daughter Megan, & granddaughter Sophia)

Location: Lake Geneva, WI

Design: 4 4’x6’ classic raised cedar garden beds with custom, locally-made moon arches tucked into a city lot with 96 total sq. ft. of growing space. 

Process: In addition to a renovated patio and backyard landscaping, the Brockerick’s wanted a kitchen garden for three generations of their family to enjoy together. We installed a mid-level garden with herbs, veggies, & flowers all mixed in. Final touches included installing the custom-made moon arches for Brian’s favorite San Marzano tomatoes to climb all summer long.

Favorite Part: “Our granddaughter and her  friend enjoyed so many new veggies and herbs including edamame beans and fresh cucumbers solely because we grew them in the garden.”

“The kitchen garden has been so effortless compared to past gardening experiences!”

Plan to Expand: Sheila and Brian will continue to invite their grown children and their grandchildren (& friends!) to enjoy the garden with them, basking in the beauty and enjoying the bounty.
