Been gardening since age 5 in Southern California - pleaded with my garderner parents to let me help. Growing things and making beautiful gardens out of them to look at, and sit in is way up on my list of avocations.
I especially like the look of hard textures (rocks, stone paths, pedestals etc.) next to soft foliage and have added many paths, stones, cement walls and rocks to my garden.
I believe strongly that gardens should be outdoor rooms - just as comfortable and appealing as the indoors.
I designed most of the gardens @ the houses in which we’ve lived. In ’05 we received a city-wide award for our gardens and a portion was shown in the August/September issue of Fine Gardening on page 18.
In February of ’05 we relocated from Seattle WA to Tucson AZ. What a different growing area!! Now, after almost 3 years and many mistakes, our new gardens are beginning to fill in and look great. Whew.
I live in: United States
My zone is: z9 Tucson AZ
My favorite forum 1 is Arizona Gardening.
My favorite forum 2 is Citrus.
