Hi all,
My hubby & I purchased an acreage in Oct. I am a Master Gardener for over 10 yrs now. 
We lived in our last home for 18 yrs-ran out of garden/flower space and had to move. ;D
There we built a 5000 gal pond with a small amount of Japanese garden feel.

Now we have the room and going to do the Japanese garden to it's fullest.  Being in zone 5
has a little bit of limitations-we have started off so far with a lace leaf Japanese maple-
a Harry Lauder walking stick-planted on a mound with dry creek and flat bridge

My hubby is a carpenter-so the tea house, bridges & pergola will happen this summer

I am so excited to be here and can't wait to learn & learn & learn
Here is a peek of last weekends project-this will never end

Sounds like you have a great journey ahead of you.  Enjoy and you are lucky to have a Carpenter in the family.  Don't worry about Zone 5 we can grow tons of stuff.  I made some micro climates with boulder and berms for protection and I even have  black mondo grass that is only hardy to zone 6.  Think outside the box and have a great time.



Welcome to the forum!  There are positives and negatives to all zones, but I think more positives for the cooler ones.  Have fun learning!
