King St. couple's garden honoured

 

A garden featuring peonies and irises as well as salvia and lupins at 643 King St. is the latest winner of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s annual Garden of the Week contest.

The homeowners, Randie and Alex Topps, are both landscape architects, and they said it is not the first time their garden has been honoured in the contest but they felt “happy” and “proud” to be the winners.

“Happy to be recognized for my hard labour,” Randie told The Lake Report and said she loves to look at the garden. Randie spends many hours each week tending the garden while Alex said he merely digs the holes.

Judges commented on the garden’s “lovely" Kousa dogwoods.

“The strategic placement of a spruce tree provides privacy and there are lovely perennials in co-ordinating colours with a viewing bench to enjoy the gardens,” the judges said in a news release from the Town of NOTL.
