We received 8" of snow on January 28th that was followed by 3" of rain on February 1st. Both of our ponds were out of their banks. The video footage below represents the aftermath. We decided that a stream restoration project was in order. The bridge was constructed by Brian at pergola pros (http://pergolapros.net), they did a fantastic job. Over 50 tons of boulders were brought in to line the stream bottom. There are now five waterfalls that will create the most soothing sound as you and your guests enjoy the property. From the lower lawn ceremony site, the bridge crosses over the stream into a 4 acre field of wild flowers.

In the beginning............
The Nursery began in 2003 with several thousand ornamental, shade and evergreen trees planted on the property. Today you will find that these trees have matured and create the ultimate setting for your outdoor function. The property is the only working Tree Farm in the area that is available as an outdoor location for weddings and corporate events. Photographers love our farm because it is easy to find hundreds of photo opportunities in one location.
Depending on the season, there is always something of interest to be found within the trees on the property. In the spring, you will find hundreds of Cherry trees in bloom. Bluebirds are actively building their nests in the boxes scattered around the farm. In early summer, the Crape Myrtles begin to bloom and will hold their color into mid to late fall. When fall begins, the three varieties of Red Maples will explode with color until the first hard freeze. .
Winter brings a peaceful and relaxing feeling to the farm, especially when everything is covered in a blanket of snow.
No matter what season it is, you will find the nursery to be an amazing location to entertain your guests. Please call us or email us today to come out for a tour of the property.

We have enhanced the beauty of the streams by creating waterfalls and building bridges so that our guests can enjoy the mesmerizing sounds that come from these water features. The streams create the perfect background music for any function or ceremony. The two ponds are both stocked with fish and hold Largemouth Bass, Catfish, Bluegill, Shell Cracker and Painted Turtles. You will find many types of birds that use the water on the property for shelter and feeding; Great Blue Herron, Osprey, Hawks, Wood Ducks, Mallards, Canadian Geese, Egrits, King Fishers to name a few.
