If you had the opportunity (see how I am trying to be optimistic, really more like the unfortunate circumstance?) to re-design your garden, what would you do differently?
What kind of things have you always wanted in your garden, but didn't get to have, and why?
My last garden was a work in progress, as I think now, that all gardens are. After about 14-16 years, it was finally what I would say was finished, as close as it ever would be. But I had to move because of dh job, and now I am looking at starting over. It might be a year or two before I get much action, but I am in the planning stages now since I have a little time on my hands off and on. Our house plans are in the hands of an architect right now, we have a 5 acre lot purchased. Next we will choose a contractor and then head to the bank with our plan... Hope they buy it LOL
So, as I was saying, my last garden went like this. I guess I am a plopper and not a planner as someone recently suggested. Perhaps a plant collector and not a gardener. If I like something, I find a place for it. But you know how it is. You plant A over here, because is will look nice next to B. Then plant A gets larger than the tag said, so you decide to move plant B next to plant C. Then plant C dies over the winter. Well, now you're off to find a plant D to look nice to plant B. In the mean time, the tree that was there when you bought the place has gotten larger and spread out its roots kinda in the bed. So you finally decide to talk dh into whacking it down. Now then, there went all the shade! So plant A, plant B and plant D need moved. Wait a minute, was it B or C that died? Well you get the idea. It is just a haphazard experiment every year... always saying, NEXT year you will be DONE! LOLOLOL!
So this time I thought since I am starting with a blank slate, I might do a little more planning. But planning is kind of boring, and well things don't always go as planned, and what if find something I really LOVE but it isn't in the plan, then what?! Just find a place to plop it?!
