Iam from Chattanooga TN but mainly live in Asheville NC. I got my degrees in construction and business at Appalachian State in Boone and lived in Greeneville SC before moving to Asheville.

I have an urban city lot and do vegetables on a steep slope in the back yard which is a great layout for a harvested rainwater, gravity-fed drip irrigation system. I'am in the process of expanding the vegetable beds and brambles. Have had some good luck lately with container growing strawberries, tomatoes and peppers. Built first true compost pile recently and have had great success with the neighbor's bagged leaves and Starbucks spent coffee grounds.

My favorite landscape design includes water features, stone work, grasses and conifers.

Most time is spent building custom homes in the Asheville area. Very interested in building science, reducing our energy use and increasing the health of our indoor air.

Enjoy all times outdoors especially when hiking, mtn biking and kayaking.

I live in: United States

My zone is: 6b-7b
