Edgewood Gardens

Edgewood Garden is a large estate garden created on 32 acres in Edgewood, Washington by Ilga Jansons and Michael Dryfoos. They started out in 2004 with a property covered mainly in lawn and blackberry bushes, and centered on a large Northwest Contemporary style house built in 1981 with a stunning view of Mt. Rainier. Since then they have created a garden grand in scale yet intimate in experience, featuring various garden rooms or themes, from bird-filled woods to more formal rose gardens to contemplative Asian settings. Now coming into maturity after six years of development, Edgewood Garden is rare in scale and ambition, and in the hands-on attitude of the owners.

As an urban mom with two small kids, Annette is going from supermarket to farm fresh food one step at a time. “In 2009 I vowed to re-channel my grocery money away from mono-crop farmers, processed food companies and animal feed lots. I did not buy foods from outside Washington state until I had exhausted all local options and I gave up out of season foods.

When it was all said and done the garden met all our veggie needs from May (when it was planted) until mid December and then started producing for us again by February. We now have 22 fruits or berries, 2 nut varieties, roots and tubers, vegetables, black pepper, tea, medicinals and countless herbs in addition to our backyard chickens, mason bees and composting worms.”
