Landscaping Tips

Since the 1970's, when I first began my career in landscape gardening, I, and my own garden have gone through as many phases as the moon. My own original landscape went from looking spectacular to too many roses to none, and from no daylilies to endless mounds. Yes, even we professionals in the field have to learn much from hands on experience in the Gardening School of Hard Knocks.

Landscape gardening has been good to me in many different ways. Aside from the knowledge gained, and the therapeutic and aesthetic enjoyment derived, landscape gardening has helped to support my family financially and with produce from the garden. Working with nature has been a tremendous joy...or should I say "learning from nature"?

Perhaps you are a beginning gardener or do-it-yourselfer in search of enlightment? Maybe you're one of those who calls yourself a "plant killer" - whose gardening strategy thus far can be summed up as a "trowel and error"? Or, maybe, you're an old hand that needs a fresh eye? Even Tiger Woods has a golf coach. Anyhow, those old sayings such as, "A little good advice can go a long way" stick around for a reason: because they are true. This rule applies to every gardener, whether a seasoned pro or a novice. There are always new techniques coming along to improve any gardeners skills. There are always new varieties of plants arriving in the market. No gardener ever knows it all, and a garden is never truly finished or done.

My goal here is to provide others with what I hope will be valuable landscape gardening tips and advice based on my own trials and experiences as an avid landscape gardener and designer in the state of Georgia over the past 30 years.
