This Huber Hgts house sits on 1-1/2 acres that incorporate woodland gardens in which grow 6,000+ hostas, wildflowers, daylilies — all planted and cared for by the previous owner, an avid gardener/grower.

Now the new owner intends to replace all this with trees and bushes and is offering all of it for FREE. You just need to dig plants yourself and have lots of containers to haul off all the treasures you find.

Times & Hours: Every day, 9:00am to 3:30pm

Location: Huber Heights, south of I-70, west of Rt. 202 (Old Troy Pike), [via Johannsen Ave., Dial Dr., Lincrest Pl.]

Contact: Sandy Kenney 937-307-7956

Note: Sandy is working hard to fix up the place and would appreciate a call to confirm when you expect to arrive.

Reminder: This is a U-Dig-‘Em… bring your own shovels & containers.
