Gardening with Style: A Few Ideas for Designing Your Garden

Gardening is not just a science; it’s an art as well. Although it is possible to focus on the function of your garden, its form is just as important when it comes to aesthetics and overall enjoyment. With all the work you put into the maintenance and upkeep of your garden, it’s important that you choose a design that not only works with your budget and lifestyle, but that also has curb appeal. Here are a few garden types that you can emulate when designing your garden. Native Plant Gardens and Xeriscaping
Perhaps the most sensible of all gardens are native plant and xeriscaped gardens. Xeriscaping is the process of utilizing plants that do not require artificial irrigation or other forms of supplementation to its environment to survive. Though native plants would be the most obvious choice, you can also plant exotics that prefer very similar conditions. Don’t forget to ask your local palm tree nursery for drought-tolerant specimens that do well with low-water availability. Rock Gardens
Also known as a rockery, a rock garden is a garden that utilizes rocks and stones along with plants that prefer less water. Since rocks and stones provide a good source to fill in negative space, you can plant less, reducing your need for water, without leaving your garden looking bare. A popular example of a rock garden is the Zen garden, or Japanese rock garden, which is characterized by its use of raked gravel or sand to simulate water. Water Gardens
If you have a pond or water-tight container, you can plant a water garden. Essentially, a water garden is what the name suggests, a garden that utilizes plants that are adapted to living in water. For water features containing fish, adding water plants can help with the oxygenation of the water, and with some fish, they provide a food source or breeding grounds for their fry. Container Gardens
One benefit to using container gardens is that it can be used in small spaces where a traditional garden would be impractical. Balconies, small courtyards and patios that might not have enough room for large plants are a good candidate for container gardening. You can also mix or match your containers to improve the aesthetic value of a container garden. Just make sure to consult an expert at your local San Diego nursery on what plants make good container plants first. Raised Bed Gardens
Much like container gardens, you can also create your own garden beds to plant in. Raised bed gardens can be used for aesthetic value, but it can also function as a supplemental seating area for sturdy bed materials like stone, brick or concrete. In Southern California, smaller sized palm trees for sale, like Phoenix roebellinis, are sometimes used in container and raised bed gardens for common places like walkways and sidewalk planters.

Portrait of a Mother-in-law

The usual concept of mothers- in- law is that she is a person difficult to deal with, hard to please, over bearing and worse, sort of villainous. She makes the life of her in laws a mess. This is usually typified in novels, soap operas and movies. In my case, it’s different. My mother-in-law she is an exception. If only all mothers-in-law were like her, then this world would be a better place to live in. She is an unsung hero, so I’ve decided to write an open letter to her.
