OvS Residential Garden Featured in the Washington Post Magazine

Fall has turned into a time of year that many gardeners appreciate as one of the most beautiful times of year horticulturally. Cool autumn temperatures tend to perk up plants and show their beauty in the fall colors that they produce.

An OvS residential garden on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC was recently featured The Washington Post Magazine. The home and garden belong to a long time Hill resident and OvS-client, Dr. Gary Mintz. The article references OvS’ New American Garden style, which encourages “…perennials to further four-season interest in the garden, with fall as a highlight.”

In the Mintz garden, the best of autumn is reflected in native witch hazel, cornelian-cherry dogwood, kousa dogwood, and serviceberry trees.

Dr. Mintz told the Magazine, “Fall is much a ‘safer’ time to plant than summer. It’s a great time to replace shrubs and trees, especially large specimens, as well as other plants that are finicky, and of course bulbs.”
