Grow Your Garden


Spring is a great motivator for me to clean out the garage, dust off the gardening gloves, buy some new mulch and get to planning out a garden. My gardening typically doesn’t occur until later in April, but I was browsing the garden issue of BH&G and was completely inspired by some of the most beautiful (and surprisingly simple) garden borders.

These gorgeous landscaping projects have ideas I would love to incorporate into my backyard design. They may require more than just some potting soil and a Saturday, but the end effect is so beautiful, it takes outdoor living to a whole new level.


A cozy hangout with a corner trellis among the flower border is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a little R&R.


Someday I want to create our own veggie garden and this simple style would work perfectly to allow easy access for little helping hands.


Decks (aka my deck) can often have unsightly posts and these tall grasses and perennials provide plenty of cover and color to take the focus off the support beams.

I hope you are inspired as much as I am! I’m ready to get down in the dirt, plant some color and eventually sit back, relax and watch my garden grow.
