The Pool Gardener is run by Paul and his son Michael DeRose. Paul has been gardening for over thirty years and has an encyclopedic like knowledge of plants. He moved from the country into the small city of Dowagiac, Michigan around fifteen years ago and rather than restore the old pool that was on the property he decided he’d rather turn it into a garden. On his double lot in town he has three gardening areas including the pool, a cherry tree, peach tree, and 5-in-1 apple tree.
