Wooded Wonderland: Lush backyard oasis boasts natural plants and plenty of space to host

Sonya and Gerald Ross are plant enthusiasts and become more so as they develop the garden at their Jefferson City home. Not only has the property become a labor of love, but it has provided spaces to host guests — and even other garden fanatics. The Ross’ home was chosen as a stop on the Bittersweet Garden Club’s 21st annual garden tour in June, standing out thanks to native plants and trees, for which they spent three months preparing. Over a stream and through the woods, you’ll find a local ecosystem that provides an oasis for those who visit.
