Before and after...finally!




Ok, so it's been more than a month since I blogged. But you know how it is for landscapers this time of year... right?

Ok, so here's the before and after pictures of the front of the house. Keep in mind, it's only mid-June and I've been working like a mule that has been lowered into a coal mine in a bucket to work 22 hour days hauling things 3x my own weight in the dark and then it's too difficult to get me back out of the coal mine so I'm just going to end up shot, skinned and eaten.

I need lots more cocoa shell mulch and a shit load of rain. But I'm on to something!



I've been looking for the word that best explains how I want my gardens to look and how I want them to make me feel. When I really allow my self to think about it, it's what I crave in my interior decorating style as well. It's like, established? Ancient? Layered? Cozy? Plain ol' interesting? I know I like things busy, and a little cluttered. But I wouldn't say "patchwork" or "messy"... I give up for today...
