Welcome. We're Glad Your Here!
Well...it is more like *I'm* glad you're here. I'm Jake Parrillo and I'm a novice gardener. This is one of my little spots on the Web. Hornbeam Hill is the name of my garden in Downers Grove, Illinois. I started working the garden at Hornbeam Hill in May of 2017. That was while our house was being built. That didn't stop us from planting a few trees including this Dawn Redwood on Earth Day 2017.
This place is designed to show all the little steps we're taking to make Hornbeam Hill a garden we love. It is a little bit of 'progress' every day - or every time we step into the yard.
I'm a Dad of three little ones who help me in the garden everyday. My full bio can be found on my blog.
