Some 35 hydrangea and 20 Japanese maples are interwoven into the landscape fabric. Throughout the property are stone features and many native and pollinator plants.

    Bill Guggina’s Bluff House –  Falmouth
    Welcome to The Gardens at 100 Moorland Road, a quintessential Cape Cod scene set on a bluff overlooking Vineyard Sound.  While the garden plantings are relatively new due to a recent home renovation, you will be captivated and inspired by the variety of plantings, areas of interest, and the stunning ocean views of the sound.  The owner has also built over 250 feet of dry-stone walls on the property to provide various aesthetic and functional purposes.  This is a place where human craftsmanship and natural beauty come together in perfect harmony allowing visitors to immerse themselves in its tranquility and serenity. Garden talks at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

    Cranberry Gables on Maple - W. Barnstable
    The Japanese concept of WABI-SABI best describes the Wallace’s garden paradise - that gardens don't have to be perfect to be beautiful, useful, and enjoyable. Come and enjoy our unusual, framed topiary - giraffe, lion (in the pet cemetery), tortoise, & rabbits, free style topiary of trees & shrubs, and a 40-year collection of trees, shrubs, plants, and bulbs from unique Nurseries, Catalogs & Gardening Friends. Our garden artistry is playful and quirky – à la Alice in Wonderland. The property is parklike with mature native trees, a variety of hydrangeas, wide walking paths, and plenty of places to sit and ponder.  We will have a raffle for a triple decker bird house and a Plein Air Artist painting in the garden. Garden talks at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Garden Open for Tours: July 13 & 14.
