    Richard & Allyn Michaelson’s Garden -  12 Sheeps Crossing Lane, Woods Hole
    In 1994, Richard and Allyn Michaelson built their home on a wooded acre that slopes 40' up from the street to the rear of the property. With rough drawings from a landscape architect, Richard is now 30 years into a 5-year plan.  The front garden is marked by a large beech tree and complemented with hydrangeas, ferns, hostas, rose of sharon, butterfly bushes, Japanese red maples, pine trees, kousa dogwood trees, and more. On the west side of the house, there is a long pachysandra bed and additional hydrangeas. A path leads to an inground pool where a stone retaining wall lines a bed awash with color from hydrangeas, hostas, a growing selection of daylilies, and others. There is also an upper terrace complete with a firepit and a pathway that provide a comfortable shady area to sit and enjoy the greenery, climbing hydrangea, and the view.
