Hey There! I’m Rochelle Greayer. I’m a garden designer on TV and IRL. I’m also an author and entrepreneur who thinks she can save the world by teaching everyone a little something about landscape design.






Downed Trees

I live in the woods, which can take a little getting used to…in a gardening sense….I must learn to love shady acid loving plants, which is hard for me.  But I am also fighting back…and though you wouldn’t know it to visit today, since we moved here we have removed about 40 trees (please understand- I am not a strip miner…they really are not missed).  Now we have little pockets of sunshine, but I am desperate for more.

Our last tree removal effort was cheap (in dollars) as it involved a logger (who was paid in exchange for the trees that he cut down).  We have a lot of very tall straight pines.  After more than a year of backbreaking effort on our part to clear all the debris that he didn’t take, we got what we paid for.  So I am hesitant to do it all again.   But I saw this great bench and I think it is perfect for my place.  So as I continue to strategically take down one tree at a time, I think we will try and create some seating around the garden and also save us some of the effort and cost of tree removal.
