Hard to believe this was Ohio but indeed it is an amazing garden in Cleveland Ohio. Ultimate Walkout Landscape Feature in Cleveland Ohio a private residential home. It is a state-of-the-art platform feature on Lake Erie. I will admit I was a little nervous but as soon as I stepped onto the walkout I had no fear. Check out photos in this post from this Cleveland Ohio residential landscape.
Treasure of Edgewater Gardens Featuring A Walkout Over Lake Erie
A few years ago I got to tour some amazing landscapes in Cleveland, Ohio during the APLD Event. Most of the images of the tour using social would get responses questioning the location of this design. I found myself a few times having to remind myself I was in my home state. Ohio is better known for flat and fertile farmland not spectacular private gardens on lakefronts. The gardens featured in this tour were seriously hidden treasures of the Midwest.
To get down to the cliffside garden you would walk down the beautiful stone stairs. Along the edge of one of the turns was the first time I saw Prickly Pear growing in Ohio.
Each turn of the staircase leading to the walkout had a different texture growing.
Mish- Mosh Wall and staircase to the cliff-side was made up of recycled pavers, bricks, and stones from the site with stair treads constructed of recycled city sandstone curbing. I love how you can see the city of Cleveland out to the right in the photo above.
The Lakeside Area
