“There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.” ~Buddha
I am what most people would clasify as a "hard-core" gardener. And as such I struggle with gardening and the different philosphies related to gardening. And even more so with landscaping;the attempt most homeowners and businesses employ to tame their yards.
Anyone, can landscape. All it takes is to know how to neatly organize 4 or 5 common shrubs or trees, trim them into pom-pom or poodle cut shapes, mulch and water.Perhaps throwing in a stray perennial or grouping of annuals to give the landscape a little character. Oh, and don't forget the perfect grass. This in most cases includes weed free and insect free grass that is soft and lush and reminiscent of your living room carpet or better.
Gardening is an art-form. Yes, art-form! It is art because it tends to be a expressive and artistic reflection of the gardens owner....more to come
