Saturday gave some time to finally install a circle of wine bottle edging to a bed we have been meaning to clean up for a long time. This is the third bed we have edged in this fashion.

Reading – The Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Garden: 326 Fast, Easy, Affordable Ways to Transform Your Yard One Project at a Time by Sally Roth – 10 in a series

I’ll be highlighting books that I am reading (or re-reading) on all sorts of topics this year — Douglas

Reading – The Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Garden: 326 Fast, Easy, Affordable Ways to Transform Your Yard One Project at a Time by Sally Roth – 10 in a series

Reading - The Beginner's Guide to Starting a Garden: 326 Fast, Easy, Affordable Ways to Transform Your Yard One Project at a Time by Sally Roth - 10 in a series

Getting started with a garden can feel overwhelming whether starting on a new property or renovating your existing property. Where do you put the planting beds? What plants do you use? What works best in different areas of the yard and garden?  The Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Garden is a great help in improving your garden by breaking it down into small, manageable, yet expandable, “chunks.” Start with your mailbox area. Move to the corners of your property. Dress your front walk and door. One little piece at a time. The book provides 12, easy, small gardens — each with detailed planting guides, tips, hints,  and plants — that you can adapt to your own gardening needs. 

Having trouble getting started in your garden? Pick up this book and you’ll get moving the very first day!

The prospect of revamping a yard is daunting. Where do you start? How do all the various areas come together in a beautiful, cohesive way? The Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Garden simplifies the process by showing you how to spend fewer hours (and a minimal amount of money) in the garden by tackling one small area at a time. You’ll find garden plans for ten unique areas—the entryway, the shady areas under trees, and more—that can be linked together over time to create a unified yard, and plants that are dependable, easy to find, and look good year after year. You’ll also learn the basics of good design, which plants offer the most bloom for your buck, and how to avoid the most common planting mistakes.
