The Gettysburg Garden Club, through its Garden of the Month committee, is pleased to present the Garden of the Month award to Mary and Terry Castonguay of 51 Battalion Ln, Gettysburg.

As I walked up the curved sidewalk to the inset front door of the Castonguay’s slate colored ranch home, I couldn’t help but feel welcomed by a bench to the right of the door and potted bonsais to the left. It was like entering a private outdoor cubby where one could read the morning paper and enjoy a cup of coffee. After talking to Mary, I learned she does just that with her cat curled up beside her. Terry and Mary have resided at Cannon Ridge for three years, since downsizing from living at the Links. When they moved into their current home they removed mostly everything except the trees. Mary knew what she wanted and where to place it, and Terry implemented.
