The LaLuzerne property has been in development for over 43 years with
many different habitats and should be of interest to a wide variety of people. In 1976 the property was a barren former corn field without even a nasty weed to add some green. Jim and Sandi have purposely contoured the land, added structures, ponds and streams
to create a native natural space. It would best be described as an arboretum of native Wisconsin trees and shrubs interspersed with scores of native grasses, sedges, water plants, cacti, dwarf conifers, vines, mosses, mushrooms, and weeds.
Jim explains that their property is not maintained as a formal garden. Rather each day they beat back the weeds with an attempt to stay ahead. “Some days we win. Some days we lose.”
Jim and Sandi are always eager to share it with people that appreciate wild native spaces
The layout is well suited for someone who likes to ramble or to just sit on the terrace and view the pond. If anyone wants to sit and enjoy the view, plan to arrive early, anytime after 4:00 PM.
