Living Fences and Living Walls
The old saying “fences make good neighbors” may be true for some, but we think plants make the best neighbors! Many yards have an unsightly fence, garage or house that would be best hidden from view. Learn to select plants that will beautify your yard’s problem areas.
Other landscaping topics include Garden Paths & Walkways, Using Stone in the Landscape, and more.
Like Shakespeare once said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” When strategically sited, fragrance can greatly enhance the enjoyment of a garden. Amy and her family have spent many starry nights with friends enjoying the fragrant jasmine that covers their arbor.

Four Season Gardening
Most people are excited to garden in spring and summer because everything is in bloom. Yet, there are a myriad of plants that bloom in fall and winter. And it’s important to invite pollinators to our gardens when many need food the most!
Other seasonal topics include Adding Fall Color to Your Garden, Top Ten Spring Blooms, Color and Interest in the Winter Garden, Spring Flowering Trees, and more.
