Landscape Garden

The Farwell Landscape Garden displays a cross section of different kinds of gardens suitable for residential settings, and the plants appropriate to these designs.

Specialized garden displays include formal and informal herb gardens, a traditional perennial border, a rock garden, streamside gardens, an easy-to-grow mixed border, and still other small-scale landscaping ideas for Midwest gardens.

Tough, low-maintenance, but still quite showy plants have been featured in the easy-to-grow area to inspire hands-off gardeners.

A meandering path, with pools and streams, creates a pleasant stroll through diverse and beautiful settings. These garden tableaus offer home gardeners ideas for shade- and sun-loving plants.
