Louisville Stonewood Meadows house on the Kilgore Garden Tour 2022

Glenn and Lisa Todd’s garden is a sight to behold. It surrounds their entire 4,400-square-foot home in Stonewood Meadows and features two ponds with waterfalls, a large dining and entertaining area, and a fire pit area. But as Lisa explains, the outdoor oasis wasn’t thrown together overnight. In fact, it’s been in development for nearly two decades.

“[It’s]been 19 years,” she told the Courier Journal. “(When) we moved here in 2003, there was nothing – (just grass). Everything you see planted I planted.”

“I’m the gardener, so I had full creative license,” Lisa said. “Although Glenn is not a gardener per se, he is a co-creator.”

She explains that her husband did all the hardscape work, including building the gazebo and arbor. He’s also the muscle when Lisa needs a little help moving things.

“If I have trouble lifting something, he’s there,” she said. “We really did everything together.”
