ENID, Okla. —
Linda and Ron Licklider
This Mediterranean-style garden has been in the works for 20 years.
Growths of boxwood hedges travel the length of the garden. Use of ivy creates a faux lawn of greenery throughout the garden.
Sycamore and maple trees canopy the rear Zen-like garden. A larger carved granite Tachi-gata temple lantern and carved boulder-style Ikekomi-gate grace either side of the garden walk.

One large elm tree is the only plant still on the four-acre property from when the garden was started more than eight years ago.
Soil excavated for the 11-foot-deep pond helped level the area and established a lush, cushioned Bermuda grass lawn. Willow and maple trees surround the pond and line the driveway.

The expansive area surrounding the building is tended by Garfield County Master Gardeners.
Many of the plants in the garden are on the Oklahoma Proven list, which was created to help people choose plants that will thrive in the Sooner State.
