As we speak we’re visiting MJ McCabe.
We bought this property in Northford, Connecticut about 40 years in the past. It was an outdated apple orchard. Regularly, the traditional apple bushes started to say no and we have been left with a fairly clean canvas that wanted to be rethought. We pruned and tended some apple bushes as they supplied good construction and shade. One in all my first steps was to start out fascinated about creating backyard rooms – particular person areas that may work properly collectively however permit for a extra cohesive look to the general panorama.
The brand new bushes and shrubs have grown properly through the years – plenty of perennials and mass plantings of spring bulbs made the backyard a wonderful setting for our 1890’s house.
