2020 Through the Garden Gate Series #3: Garden at Cargil Lane
July 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The 19th annual series of “Through the Garden Gate” presents a series of opportunities to visit local gardens. Come visit The Garden at Cargil Lane, 718 Cargil Lane, Charlottesville, Virginia 22901 hosted by the Piedmont Master Gardeners. Built in 1938, the original house had extensive gardens, with a greenhouse, that over time were abandoned and became overrun by wild grape and wisteria. Ten years ago, the owners began to clear the overgrowth then design and plant the one-acre property. It borders a pond and stream, so wildlife is plentiful. A deer fence installed in 2019 has made a significant difference in planting options and protects a water garden; outside the fence, the garden features deer-resistant plants. Admission is $5 and can be paid at the garden.
