Textural Garden

Succulent potted succulents

This container was planted by me about 4 years ago and still looks great. This was a corporate client and this was one of four large containers planted to decorate their outdoor break area. These pots need tending to about once a month at the most. There really is such a thing as low (but not “no”) maintenance!

Raised beds in community garden

Every summer my daughters and I travel to Vancouver, B.C., where there is a beautiful, rambling, well-tended community garden that I’m lucky enough to get to work in. This is how it looked during the first week of August, 2009.

Permaculture

This image makes me LOVE what I do more than I usually do (which is A LOT). I want to dive into it and roll around! Luckily, I get to do just that in real life. It’s a corner of my friend’s garden where I get free reign to play with permaculture. The plants that grow food blend seamlessly with the ornamentals. Ahhh…
