Cyndy Ashley's garden in Davisburg is a labor of love.

During the past 35 years, she and her husband have done all of the design and work on their garden, which include a pond, two terraces and  bordering garden beds.

“It was just a big hill of weeds and grass when we bought it,” said Ashley in an email. “I actually dug out the first two terraces with a hand shovel.” 

Cyndy Ashley's "Backyard Retreat" is this week's winner of the Homestyle Garden Photo Contest.

 Ashley's photo, "Backyard Retreat," is this week's winner of the Homestyle Garden Photo Contest.

She'll win a free interior design or gardening book; she'll also be a finalist to win the grand prize at the end of the summer, a $200 English Gardens gift card.
