Spring is here and we are looking forward to another season. Despite all that our community and nation faces, we will open on Friday April 10th with hardy perennials and shrubs as we head outside on warm spring days. As an incentive for you familiarize yourself with our plants, by looking through our Shrubs and Perennials Pages, we will take 15% off the price of the plants that make it to your wish-list on Fabulous Fridays.
Taylor's Master Guide to Landscaping by Rita Buchanan. This is a great book. The pictures and text are so well done with practical advice on adding new gardens and hardscapes along with practical "makeovers" for problem solving.
Backyard Design, Making the Most of the Space Around Your House by Jean Spiro Breskend. I leave this book outside through the summer and look at it whenever I have a chance to sit and relax under the gazebo. The pictures give me ideas on how to balance time, energy, space, and design in my own backyard.
