The front garden of the Hoefel Haus B&B and Bike Hotel, the borders are contrilled and set to stand out by using the empty wine bottles....not exactly sculpture...but it is artistic.

Kurt and Peggy [Hoefel] met working in the hospitality industry in 1986. The newly renovated St. Louis Union Station housed the Omni International Hotel where they both worked. Peggy was in nursing school; Kurt had finished college and was starting his career

"Enjoying the unique comfort and hospitality of B&Bs in their travels, Kurt dreamed of hosting guests at his own place. His extensive restaurant experience granted the food service skills and his talent lent the gourmet flair. Peggy has a knack for design and enjoys upcycling discarded pieces into treasures." ~ Hoefel Haus B&B and Bike Hostel
