Great Gardens: Library and Wildlife Habitat in one unique Garden


After three decades of hard work, Gordon and Barb Lowe's magnificent landscape boasts many intricate details.

The two acre garden sits on the edge of the City of Wausau and the Town of Stettin. It boasts beautiful flowers, shrubs, and ornamental grass you'd find in regular gardens, but it also showcases how the Lowe's use certain plants that might be junk plants in other gardeners eyes.

Their garden is a certified Wildlife Habitat providing shelter and food for furry critters that may live nearby. However, not every garden has a library.

It's free and open to the public. People can add to the collection or take a book and bring it back which gives this garden a uniqueness all on its own.
