Using Color

I like to use colorful pots, such as this tiered wire container draped with chartreuse sweet potato vine, pink impatiens, and red geraniums, to bring garden color right up to the house.

All the hard work—it took three years just to lay out what you see here—not only added up to a place we cherish as a retreat, it also led me to a new career. After taking numerous seminars through the local horticultural society, I went for a full-fledged degree. I'm now a landscape designer, and I thrive on helping clients do at their homes what I did at my own: create a garden with four-season interest that can be enjoyed from inside the house as well as out, and that provides endless hours of joy.
