Stone Soup Gardens is starting a trend. Rather than building fences between neighbors, we've been working to tear down neighborhood fences in order to create a shared atmosphere, a common space, and a sense of community amongst our clients and their neighbors.
It started innocently enough. We had a client request to remove part of a fence to create a pathway between their home and the neighbors front porch in order to make it more accessible. We created that pathway, and took it several steps farther by including an adjoining trail along the sides of the homes, as well as between the backyards. This opened up the area to more garden planting space, a better view between the homes, and greater opportunities for neighbors to hang out with neighbors.
We are excited about this project, and look forward to working in concert with other neighbors while building community. Stay tuned for more photos as we continue to work to completion on this project, and many others.
Do you have a neighbor you'd like to share space with? Contact Stone Soup Gardens today to tear down those fences!
