Even though The Captain and I have a large property with way too many future projects, we decided to start in the Carport Jungle. Now that our tomatoes, peppers and herbs are on their way, it is time for us to concentrate on landscape design.
Even if you have a large area that needs landscaping, start small or you may overwhelm yourself. I speak from experience! Better to concentrate on a small area at a time rather than nothing because of overwhelm. It is something I have a problem with in every area of my life . . . overwhelm!
One of my favorite things to do is browse the internet for some garden inspiration. Love the small garden in the photo, which is from the Fine Gardening website, sent in by one of their readers Lily Jacobi. Love the layering on different levels and the use of container gardening along with the visual pleasing rocks.
I've always loved container gardening versus hard landscaping. The problem is that when my first husband passed away and I neglected the massive gardens on the property, the container plants grew out of control and took root into the ground. Anyway, tackling that problem is a future project! This year, The Captain and I have been transplanting our grown seedlings into containers since we could not decide on exactly where to put what.
