Rose Garden at the Garden Home Retreat

Currently under construction, the Garden Home Retreat Rose Garden will feature a large collection of noisettes, varieties from the Knock Out® Family of Roses and Drift® ground cover roses. Nestled among the trees along the banks of the Arkansas River, the rose garden will have several intimate spaces within its 18,000 square feet. A hand-forged wrought-iron gate will mark the southern entry, and the entire oval-shaped garden will be circled by an allée of pleached live oak trees. Brick garden houses will grace the eastern and western ends of the garden, and rose-filled parterres and pathways will flank reflecting pools. Adjacent to the entrance gate, and across the central lawn, a third, octagonal brick garden house will house an antique statue of a Roman goddess. Other stone statuary, urns and antique garden ornaments will be found scattered throughout the garden and surrounding woodland. We think it will be hopelessly old-fashioned and romantic, don't you?
