Sunken garden features colorful flowers, true hardscape
Marcus" meadow sage and "Drift" and "Knockout" roses.
All were planted after the stonework was installed by A & S Landscaping of Canonsburg. Albert Bier's crew had to think big when it realized that the patio and deck it replaced were several feet lower than the surrounding yard.
“They had to crane in the stone and the fireplace,” said Carl Orangis, a “semi-retired” mechanical engineer with People's Gas.
He used those skills to engineer a system of hoses and spigots to water this sprawling garden, which gets sun nearly all day. Have they considered sprinklers?
“Boy, are we thinking about sprinklers!” his wife joked.
They're also talking about adding a pergola near the outdoor fireplace. The furniture in the two seating areas came from Outside Inspirations in Pine.
A garden this large takes years to come together — eight to be exact. Evanovich has convinced the couple to add a few more beds each spring.
“We had to do it in pieces,” Trish Orangis said.
Pieces also describes what Mt. Lebanon's famous herd of whitetail deer has sometimes left in this yard. One year, they turned a few hanging containers by the side porch into their own personal salad buffet/takeout window. The deer haven't bothered the wandering Jew plants (Tradescantia fluminensis) growing there now.
The couple haven't seen as many deer this year, but with a garden tour close at hand, they're not taking any chances.
“I'm spraying Deer B Gon all the time,” she said.
