I worked with her to create a beauty-with-brains-not-braun low-maintenance garden. It’s still in process. As of this week, beds have been dismantled, transplanting done, the ground leveled, new plans are drawn and the flower installation will occur in the Spring.
Select plants removed from their former beds will be re-planted in new locations and other low-maintenance perennials will be added. Our goal is continuous bloom but not a lot of work and this is being accomplished with careful planning, plant selections that are big bloomers but not demanding, long-lasting landscape fabric and a watering system.
Next season, the gardener will be able to pour herself a drink, put her feet up and enjoy the beauty of her garden instead of being concerned with garden work, water and weed control.
