Potted Succulents

Potted Succulents

Potted Succulents

I planted four of these big containers about 3 years ago for a law firm on Main St. They’re placed on a private deck that their employees can use for breaks or lunch. They truly are very low maintenance. A couple of months ago I pulled all the plants out, divided them, cleaned them up and replanted them and this is how they’re looking. So in over three years, besides watering once a week at most, this recent “re-plant” is all that I’ve done! I’m a fairly recent convert to the beauty of gardening with succulents (see previous post), but for the right application, I’m totally sold!  You don’t have to wait for them to bloom because they’re interesting in all seasons, low water requirements and in temperate climates, very dependable! Yup. I will be doing this again. Maybe even for me. I could throw a few pots (maybe round ones) like these around my fluffy rose garden. Could be interesting…

New Job…..before pics

   Just started a job today- not a design job, but should be a fun quickie. The clients want the areas around the house “fluffed up”,  so their property looks good for an upcoming event. It was a beautiful, sunny day and felt quite peaceful and idyllic up there. My crew- Perry (the drill sergeant), Dave & Juan did a great job, even when a yellow jacket nest was uncovered. Juan got stung 3 times, so they took turns working near the nest. So brave! 😉 Here’s some before shots… I’ll post after pics in a few days.
