Before & After: A Small Seattle Garden Grows to New Heights

corner, before, seattle, garden, dirt, makeover

I found this sweet little Seattle garden a few weeks ago over on the beautiful Northwest Botanicals website while combing the internet for some front yard landscaping ideas. It’s a small corner garden that started out with some scraggly plants slung over a bed of dirt and gravel, and it has evolved into a corner that’s quite charming. Of course, I now that I found this one I want my very own version, but I don’t think that will be happening any time soon.

It’s a pretty huge improvement for such a tiny space, yeah? This photo was taken 2 years after the first one and I love how it came together! I’m really digging how the fence has taken on tone that’s a bit weathered– I think it makes for a great, subtle backdrop for a vibrant group of plants.  And since I’m always a sucker for adding height to walls or ledges with a couple pretty container plants, I’m a pretty big fan of that brick wall.

Tiny gardens

Gardens don’t have to be big and they don’t have to be outdoors, to prove the point, I have found a couple of interesting new products that I would classify in the ultra- tiny category. The matchstick garden is a super cute gift idea…or perhaps a takeaway for a green hotel or garden spa property….

Getting an Early Start  – Growing Turmeric, Ginger, Rosemary & Sage

Getting an Early Start – Growing Turmeric, Ginger, Rosemary & Sage

Are you an early spring indoor seed starter? I am not. Not that I wouldn’t like to be, but frankly I just don’t have the patience for the shenanigans I have to go through to do it successfully. I always get leggy, cat chewed, weaklings that seem highly un-worth the fact that I literally have…

Daily Garden 022: Nicholas Dexter at Hampton Court

Nicholas Dexter created this garden for the Hampton Court Palace Flower show.  I love that imaginative stacking of the square cut stones to create benches and land masses in the garden.   Also I think the combination of sleek square cut pavers with the natural shape of a river cutting through the patio is stunning.
