LandVest Best: New England Homes with Great Gardens

Beautiful perennial beds, blooming wisteria vines, and stunning rose trellises are some of the reasons we love spending time in gardens throughout the summer (not to mention the bright colors and sweet scents). LandVest properties display a variety of gardens, from classic, to modern and even a rock garden. Here are some of our favorites:
