Instructor: Ryan Dovenberg
You need to see this to believe it! In the eight years since Ryan broke ground on his oasis, the grotto has become the center of a complete backyard transformation. By using the existing resources of the Biscayne Aquifer, oolite, palms, bromeliads, orchids and ferns, he has created his own personal tropical paradise. Many people travel hundreds or thousands of miles to find a setting like this. The grotto has provided long lasting memories for him and his family without creating any harm to the environment. His grotto thrives without using the chemicals needed for pool upkeep. Let your mind wander and picture yourself, your family and friends enjoying an afternoon of tranquility, getting upclose with nature or providing a day of fun and relaxation. Ryan’s backyard is truly one of Mangowood’s treasures.
