The residence dates back to 1788. The 1 acre property backs up to East Amwell valley. The barn and home sit at a high elevation and the land slopes to a central low point where a small brook flows through the property. Behind the brook, the elevation increases again and ends at a farm field that extends into the valley.
Soil conditions vary from dry to flowing water. Deer pressure is high. My family and I reside on this land and it serves as my testing grounds for new perennials and shrubs. I work in my gardens almost every Sunday. My wife and I expand our organic vegetable garden a little bit every year. I have converted the rear lawn into a meadow and design new walking paths once a year. We have six chickens who enjoy our meadow and we enjoy their eggs!
I am in the process of converting the second story of our barn into Garden Artisans East Amwell landscape design and build studio. I am also in the early site analysis stage of creating a master plan for the property. I am fortunate to own an interesting historic home, barn, and property. I am excited to develop my land into something that my family will enjoy forever!
