Hi all, I'm about to bite the bullet and start buying things to pursue a more vertical garden. Currently my plan includes getting a bunch of terracotta pots to make tipsy towers for my more bushy and low plants, or maybe a tower or two of stackable planters if I can find any for a good price. Part two is a cattle panel arch for anything vining that I'm considering - mostly for veggies. I'm probably going to go the cheapest route on everything this year, just to get an idea of...

This is in the corner of our fence line. I keep a bucket to dump animal or garbage. It gets very muddy when it rains and I’d like it to look a little bit nicer maybe with pea gravel or any stone.. but when it rains the water comes through this corner. What’s the best way to keep the rock or any design here from shifting or washing away ..read more

Our home sits on a big chunk of slab. It’s a nice elevation but I’m constantly bombing at landscaping. I’ve put several different plants and the freeze has taken them all. I’m in San Antonio TX… the slab is about 3ft. I just want it covered with something that won’t die on me.. there is a water line sort of in the middle of the flower bed so I have to plant close to the slab itself… any recommendations would be great ..read more

Cut my 6 ft tall tea olive bushes back to big sticks. I think I over did it. I had 16 that took a hard hit two years ago and never leafed out much after. Did I make a big mistake cutting them back to nothing? We did this with loropetalum and they survived and thrived. Lost all my privacy and I’m regretting not having my twig bushes ..read more

Hi all! i just had artificial turf installed and am kind of stuck looking at these seams in the grass. They did the S curve cut so as “not to catch the eye” but to me this does the opposite. Am i being too hard or critical about this? This is a brand new professional install. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you ..read more

Overwhelmed with options

Hi everyone, I have pretty much a blank slate to work with, and I'm overwhelmed. I want to do it right the first time, so I don't have to undo anything or endanger plant A by having it shaded by plant B, and whatnot. I need to accept that there will be failures (I already killed a rose by leaving it potted through the winter, I'm pretty sure ), but the pressure is still there. Here's what I have so far: We have a narrow corner-lot backyard, and the stretch I'm aiming to use runs... Read more ..read more
