Before & After: Linda’s Zen Garden

I’m always intrigued by what gardeners choose to do with the ‘side yard’.  It always seems to be an area that has more specific purpose than other areas.  Often it is the dog run, the tool area, the pass through, the garbage can storage, the weed propagation area… or something else entirely unglamourous and un-destination worthy.

But Linda and her husband saw their side yard differently and they choose to make it a zen garden that now, after the transformation, they use on a daily basis.   It is also a good reason to open some curtains — because the view is alot nicer.  I love the moodiness of all the dark purple and red colors — it seems to embrace the vibe of this ‘between-the-buildings’ position and is a nice contrast to the buttery yellow house color.

I don’t have a side yard (per se), so I am curious, what un-seemly things do you have going on in your side yard….or have you made it beautiful in some interesting way? 

If you have a before and after that you would like to share email us here – we would love to see it and so would the rest of the studio ‘g’ tribe.

Daily Garden 001

blah…blah…blah….I have gone on with words for a bit too long this morning…I need some pictures.   New for 2009, everyday, a beautiful garden picture to inspire you. From Magni Design

Garden Destinations: Cougar Annie’s Garden, Tofino BC, Canada

Garden Destinations: Cougar Annie’s Garden, Tofino BC, Canada

When a garden has this kind of backstory…. “In 1915, the pioneer settler known as Cougar Annie arrived on the west coast in Hesquiat Harbour and homesteaded on this wilderness property. She bore 8 of her 11 children here, outlasted 4 husbands and carved a magnificent, magical garden out of a thick and foreboding rainforest….

Natural Plant Partners: Callicarpa & Verbena

I am resigned to thinking that they probably can’t be partners in my garden (though I am going to try – just in case).  Callicarpa isn’t the problem, it’s the Verbena (will it work in zone 5? – supposedly not, but I have found evidence from other gardeners that it might). But there is something…
